Was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this site. Had been searching for some time for discussions related to the practice to no avail. Guess I just used the right set of words this time. In perusing the topics late last night I have already cleared some confusion I've been having pertaining to an increase in irritability when I thought I should have been feeling the opposite. Do believe I'll be returning on a regular basis as my practice progresses and new questions arise (I'm sure they will). Thank you all for being willing to discuss your experiences and know-how.
