Do not fix your mind on the attitude your rival assumes nor have it riveted on your own attitude or your own sword. Instead, fix your mind on your saika-tan-den (that part of the belly situated beneath the navel) and do not think either dealing a blow at your opponent or the latter dealing a blow at you. Cast aside all specific designs and rush to the attack the moment you see your enemy in the act of brandishing his sword over his head.

Dear me.
I could be a Grade A Jackass and tell you "stick with Ki", but I'll refrain.
However, I would appreciate it if you formatted your posts better. Capital letters, punctuation, it's not that much to ask.

Moving on.  From what I've gathered, the best way to learn Psionics--or just about anything--is to try it yourself.  If you've read any of the articles from here at Veritas, or even Psipog.net, you've likely read about as "Start Here" as you can get.  Just give it a try, man. You can't go wrong, so just be patient with it.

Just my two cents.
Sometimes my shadow leads, or it follows me, but we never seem to become one and the same.

Thanx for the info man.

Start out with meditation and energy manipulation. From there, the sky is the limit.

Please note that this is NOT a rip-off of Kobok's classes as I have been studying and writing psionics guides years before I enrolled in his class.

You should probably start out by learning information about the following topics and practicing them:

- Meditation / Candle Meditation
- Removing Self Doubt
- Clearing the Mind
- Visualization / Tactile Visualization
- Grounding / Centering
- Sensing Energy / Presences

These are just some basic fundamental skills that most systems of magic / psi / martial arts will teach you before anything else.  So I suggest reading up about them on Veritas / Google / Psipog / Other.  After that you can move on to studying one or more of the following topic areas.

[Psionics]
---Energy Manipulation / Constructs
---Telepathy
---Telekinesis
---Remote viewing
---Empathy
---Shielding
---Astral Projection
---Precognition
[Magick]
---donít know much about this
[Martial arts]
---donít know much about this either

So look those up, once again, on Veritas / Google / Psipog / Other and practice as many as you like.  Just make sure you stay focused.  If you have too much of a load, drop some.  So once you get past the basics, you pretty much set your own limit :).

And speaking of kobok's classes, once the time comes around again, if you feel like you can handle it, try applying to one of the classes offered here by Kobok and Prophecy.  I'm in kobok's class now and it's pretty good.

You don't have to go through

"---Energy Manipulation / Constructs
---Telepathy
---Telekinesis
---Remote viewing
---Empathy
---Shielding
---Astral Projection
---Precognition
[Magick]
---donít know much about this
[Martial arts]
---donít know much about this either"

As TheifDeath said. Just what interests you. That's usually a good reason for doing something. Because it interests you. Anyway, but do start out with Energy Manipulation. Psi Balls and that stuff. If you were to go through the path that TheifDeath has given, switch Shielding and Empathy around. It'd make more sense to me.

InjectedSmile78.  The array of mine that you quoted was a list, not a path.  It was intended to give a variety of choices of disciplines to study, not to set an order in which to study them.  You can put any one of those choices that you want first; you don't have to start with Energy Manipulation and move to Telepathy etc.  I'm sorry if I was unclear about that.

Sorry, my misunderstanding. I didn't really mean it as a "path" really; the best word I could come up with.
