11. Yeah, I figured that out a while ago :-(
My first challenge in even stepping onto my path was getting my monkey-mind gatekeeper to let me just sit once in a while. I've been cursed with an active intellect, and then nurtured in an intellectual/scientific/anti-spiritual family. On the other hand, when I meditate I dive straight down to That Place, so I'm not worried that I can't be here now. Mostly I worry that when I forget, I'll get so involved in thinking that I'll also forget to STFU long enough to remember. The internet is a challenge for me that way, but it can also be a great classroom for learning how to detach from the ego trap caused by combination of strong opinions and language skills.

Fortunately, wherever I wind up will be where I'm supposed to be, so it's all OK...
