Thanks for the links mikenz66. It will take some time to read everything,
but I think I have found quite a bit of help with some of it.
You have also shown me a better way to search for things on the site using google. I had no idea that could be done.
I am very new to understanding DO. I guess I was hoping to find a better way to meditate via a practical guide to utilizing DO.
I was listening to Bhikku Bodhi give a talk, and he said that on a practical level to just pay attention to the link between feeling and craving, because that is where the battle is fought. I guess I will figure it all out in time.
