    Absolutely. This is indispensible.

    Thanks for all the advice and support guys, I had an appointment with the doctor today and he has given me a prescription for some patches. I really hope they work for me, but if not I'll keep trying until something does. I have only read your posts briefly so I will study them again now.

    Much appreciated

    That's good. You'll smell a lot nicer too.

    thanks again for the link to the meditation videos, If he is an example of the power of meditation then I definitely need to start meditating myself. Which leads me to the question of how do we cultivate self discipline? I ask this because meditation is a training of the mind, so like physical training needs to be maintained on a regular basis.

    I would also like to thank you for the link you posted on another thread. It was an article on the subject of karma written by Ken McLeod, my understanding of the way karma works is so much clearer now thank you.

    Here's the address: http://www.unfetteredmind.com/articles/karma.php

    Hi Jin Zen,

    I think if you can set aside 5-10 minutes for meditation morning and evening every day, then its a good start.

    Glad you liked the Ken Mcleod articles !
