Essay writing is an art I began working with back in the late 1960s. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
By your own psychotherapist; be your own guru. Writing your thoughts down on paper (or screen), standing back and revisiting it some time later,
is often an eye-opener, revealing some of the mental tricks that we can play on ourselves. With much practice, one learns how to leave out the mental nonsense, and be spontaneous and disciplined with it. As a way of expressing one's deeper feelings and insights, it is an art that is
unsurpassed. Just try it, and see!
