Konchog1, mindfulness of breath is my normal practice
maybay, I suppose the goal is simply freedom, It may sound silly but I would like to experience all of the jhana's, as well. I think you may be right on removing obstacles, though I'm currently at a loss on how to do that entirely.
I'm not following anything, mainly trial and error - with a bit of reading here and there.
Dechen Norbu, Thank you for the link, that page has alot more information than any place I've found, I have pondered finding a teacher, but I think at least for now I'd be better off learning more before I seek one out.
Thanks all, appreciate it.
