I have the Guru Yoga book by ChNN, however I'm confused. When we do Guru Yoga of the white A, do we visualize at the heart, or the third eye. Also, unfortunately I lack the ineptitude of visualization. Do we visualize ourselves separate/outside of our body with the thigle, or do we visualize that it's actually in us?

Signed,
Wishing there was a Dzogchen book for children...

Question regarding white A for guru yoga. From what I heard it is visualized facing outward, not facing us. So do we picture Tibetan letter A as if looking behind it, in reverse (if I have a photo of Tibetan letter A and just look at it from backside)?

This is true. Also the syllable visualized is transparent too. No solid colors.
The Blessed One said:

"What is the All? Simply the eye & forms, ear & sounds, nose & aromas, tongue & flavors, body & tactile sensations, intellect & ideas. This, monks, is called the All. Anyone who would say, 'Repudiating this All, I will describe another,' if questioned on what exactly might be the grounds for his statement, would be unable to explain, and furthermore, would be put to grief. Why? Because it lies beyond range." Sabba Sutta.

One question that is a little bit off-topic:
in some practices we use visualising A-thung in the navel-chakra. Is this symbol associated with the sound ¨A¨?
