I might be 60, but I'm deffo way off wrinkly, honey....!
I know 60 only sounds old - I'm in your neighborhood age-wise, but I've got nary a wrinkle - (but only 'old' folks use the word 'nary' ha ha ha)!

I find that sometimes returning to the breath doesnt always keep stray thoughts from capturing my attention. That's when I go to a purposeful mantra.
It's like my big gun.
Sounds good. How about laying a couple of you…
None of the monks or TNH were enlightened. That TNH is inspirational, that his books are excellent and his sentiments and force for social good are beyond reproach. A good man. A good examplar. An extrord…
