( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Dear fellow monk,

to stay in the picture, you seem to have asked for wisdom, and the answers you got were the pointers to our holy books. Which -of course- contain all the wisdom you need. But also parts which you won't be able to understand yet.

Becoming wise is never the easy path. You will need to excercise, and start with the easy chores - even if they seem to be boring for you. And you need to have patience and self-discipline. It has always been that way, and it will always be.

So the path you should choose is to to get one of the many online-tutorials (or one of the many books targeted at beginners), and to study it. Read it. Do the excercises. Try to change the exercises and try to figure out what is happening. Step by step the things will get clearer. And if you really stumble, ask your fellow monks on guidance on that specific step.

The shortcut to enlightment you are looking for won't work. As Confucius says: Things have their root and their branches. Affairs have their end and their beginning.. Start at the roots!

Welcome to the monastery! Rata
