      I see what you mean. Well, since you're stuck at home, would you consider offering Sacred-Text.com your service to digitise the rest?

      It's like that. For the results to be more permanent, you'll have to repeat them more frequently. You can also try vipassana meditation. If after all that, the problem still persists, then maybe we'll just have to put the blame on plain bad kamma that has found its chance and wouldn't let go just yet.


      take care
