It is awesome that you are starting at 20 years.  Choose your teacher carefully,  choose your path/habits/practices  carefully,  and  you will be  rewarded  for your choices.   Choose  unwisely, and you will wind up doing  wrong  practices  for  decades,  wasting  your life  and  not  seeing  long lasting  rewards in life.

I don't know.  Sometimes you gotta study with the ones near you.  Get your feet wet, learn a bit, look around a bit.  As a beginner its easy to be fooled by fancy names, promises of power and high priced seminars.  But if you start with a respected local teacher, develop a practice with integrity then you can keep an eyes open for a true system that connects with you.  And you'll have some basics and discipline under your belt.

 

Jump in too fast to find the ultimate teacher at 20 and you may waste years looking, or be tossed out as too much of a beginner or end up in the hands of a charlatan.

When I was around the OP's age, I composed a "treasure map" for my spiritual aspirations. Among other things I wrote on it: "The way that can be shown is not the eternal way."

 

I believe that we may need a certain kind of practice during certain stages in our life. We may maintain it all life long or abandon it one day - perhaps to come back to it later on another level.

 

The only instance that can truly show you your way resides deep inside you.

 

Best wishes.

Even wrong, dead-end practices can be fun.

And knowing them makes it easier to decide what is right for you, which will change during your lifetime.

 

Try to have fun, you can be serious later.
