Sitting Together
  • Was keeping a diary one of your New Year resolutions? How is it going? Have you felt bored with the monotonous routine of it and stopped? I too used to begin writing diary with a lot of enthusiasm but soon stopped it, terming it a useless exercise. The last time I started writing diary, I started with new insight, which I would like to share.

    Is there a method to regularize writing and also make it a psychological exercise that can make impact your life in a great way?

    Those sitting together can be anybody; students discussing their lessons, friends discussing things that interest them, lovers sharing sweet nothings or a master sitting with his disciple (or disciples) and imparting some knowledge or any others.
