I also have a habit of going off on tangents in my research and ending up not even remembering what I was first trying to look for.
I am desperately looking for knowledge from the Sangha to help guide me in Buddhism as i am very new to it. Despite that fact, I know in my heart this is the correct way to conduct my life and what ever I learn as long as I practice compassion I am on the right path.
As to you going off on tangents, well me too my friend.
It's part of being people like us. But that's not a bad thing, learn to slow down and take it all in.
Everything comes in time, I'm also not the most patient person, but I am learning.
Stick around here and ask questions you'll be helped out immensely!!!!
Kindest wishes, Dave
