- Jan 18, 2005Hi guys, it's me - the baby lurker.
Holy crow, I want to get where you guys are!! I know of course that
you all have been studying (??) and practicing for a long time and
I'm willing to accept what I can achieve/recieve slowly but surely.
I just don't know where/how to start!! I attempt meditation
frequently - but still haven't achieved it. I'm not
getting "frustrated" really, but something like it.
I hate to ask you all to go back to basics - but any lessons/advice
you could lend to a newcomer would be greatly appreciated.
I want this very badly, but I'm finding that I'm not even exactly
sure what "this" is - it seems the more I try to draw closer to it -
the further away I'm actually getting. And it seems that all the
wanting and trying is about as far away from it as it can get!! =o)
I hope this isn't considered an intrusion. My apologies, if it is.
