They main point is to find a Guru that will teach you.

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

-Longchenpa

I highly recommend the book "Introduction to Tantra," by Lama Yeshe, as well as "The Crystal and the Way of Light," by Namkhai Norbu, which I notice has already been recommended to you. Start praying for the right teacher to show up. You can say Padmasambhava's mantra for this purpose also. Probably your two biggest allies are internet search engines, and ASPIRATIONS.
