The master says: “Write! Whether it’s a letter, a diary or just some notes as you speak on the telephone — but write!” In writing, we come closer to God and to others.
“If you want to understand your role in the world better, write. Try to put your soul in writing, even if no one reads your words — or worse, even if someone winds up reading what you did not want to be read. The simple fact of writing helps us to organize our thoughts and see more clearly what is in our surroundings. A paper and pen perform miracles — they alleviate pain, make dreams come true and summon lost hope. “The word has power.”
