ABOUT THE BOOK
No one is born with a human operator’s manual attached. We are challenged to come upon guidelines for successful living while already living. It would be very helpful to know what to consider and to consider this well before we stumble badly. A good philosophic self-help book would be much appreciated.
A Month of Wonders is just such a book. Its purpose is to bring readers to special moments of discovery and delight. With the format of a personal journal, A Month of Wonders offers thirty thought provoking yet accessible reflections, just enough to consider for a month. It focuses on Wonder, Philosophy, Conceit, Self-Transcendence, Birth, Destiny, Death, Afterlife, Being Human (2), Incarnation, The Natural World (2), Love, Friendship (2), Sex, Forgiveness, Evil, Adversity, Suffering, Grace, The Sacred, Faith, God, Happiness, Hope, Joy, and Truth (2). Each section begins with an easily remembered proverb expressing the overall point of the reflection. Each reflection concludes with a sense that the reflection really ends with the reader’s further consideration. The overall theme is this: “Happiness requires proper focus of my life, not proper focus on my life.”
A Month of Wonders is meant as a companion to those who seek insights about the meaning of life for themselves. The hope is that the process will be wonder-full.
