Thanks AdmiralJim. It's good to know someone has been there.

then the advice I got was not to see Dharma as a medicine for temporary relief but to completely trust in order to undo all suffering.
Muni, what a pity! I could learn something here. PM me if you wish.
Thanks, heart! I used to do 7-line prayer. It's time to restart.
Thanks, wisdom. I need patience.
What do you mean by that, Heruka?
ahhh..... i see.
Time for metta meditation. The stages are laid out here: http://www.wildmind.org/metta
Don't rush the meditation. Take at least a month to work up to the last stage of the meditation, more if you need it. This is not a meditation that will benefit you if you rush to the final stage.
The idea I have is that you are getting too self involved, and need to look outwards, beyond that, so you can once again see the horizon and re-orient yourself.
Give it a whirl, let me know how it goes. Namaste.
ps it is very much worth doing the guided meditations on that site.
Catmoon, I have some difficulty finding the guided meditations on that site. Can you point them out and which and in what order shall I use?
