    Did TDS' teachings help you develop spiritually?

    Did you reach states of meditation that are described by many Spiritual traditions with clear signs of progress?
Yeah, I actually just read about some of my experiences in The Taoist Classics translated by Thomas Cleary. Was excited to see them in there. I'm not going to describe exactly which ones because that is private, but I can at least say that in the sphere of yogic achievements I have certainly experienced the traditional effects of pratyahara.

    Did your character change for the better?
Certainly. I have become a more kind and accepting person when I was generally quick to judge and dismiss. There are a number of other improvements that I would associate with my experience with TDS, but that seems like the one most connected to the school.

    Did it strengthen your belief in the Divine through actual direct mystical experiences?
The number of things I have seen, experienced, and taken part in has left me with no choice but to either completely deny my experience of life as a trustworthy source of any knowledge, or know that the Divine is both there and reachable. So, yes.

I am a little tired of feeling things about him. Why won't he just reciprocate?

Needs help with healthy ways to handle stress and rejection. Probably needs a long hug. He makes me feel sympathetic.

I would stick to the two japa you asked about. I have had great success for a few years with Om Namah Shivaya. They do purify Karma, but the speed at which they do so depends on the individual. I've heard it said that the mental version of Japa is more powerful, I do not know if that is true, but in my experience it has been.

Either doesn't have girlfriend or a wife, or has an awesome one that doesn't demand he vacuum the hardwood floors.

Also, he needs this:

I second the suggestion to check out I've been with the school for three years or so. It is a legit place and the structure helps you develop the skills you need to do your own part of the path. While giving you a teacher for pointing you in the right direction and every now and then correcting your direction so you don't spend much time in wild goose chasing.
