Volume LXVIII of The Collected Works covers the period in Gandhi’s life from October 15, 1938 to February 28, 1939. It isn’t a particularly dramatic stretch in India’s independence movement, but that’s not to say there isn’t plenty going on. 2,008 more words

I used to keep a written journal every day. In fact, I’ve got boxes of them taking up space in a closet. When I taught high school English, every class started with ten to fifteen minutes of the students free writing, which I never read. 630 more words

Inner Work


Not agitated
By grief nor hankering after pleasure,
They livs free from lust and fear and anger.

They  are not elated by good fortune… 125 more words
