    No prob, glad it helped. It's a popular quiz around MW for just that reason.

      My tip to newbies is to start exactly where you are, even if you don't have a name for it, and it doesn't fit any particular path. Honor what you honor...if you can't find a ritual or what feels right. Things become clearer as we practice them.

      We find out what works and doesn't work for us. There will never be a time when all your ducks are in a row, when you've got all the right knowledge and all the right just start exactly where you are. That was the best way for me to find out where I was, what I believed and what was truly useful and significant for me.

      It may feel funny at first, but that's get brownie points for trying! It's a process, like a kid learning to talk and walk and then ride a bike. There will be spills, and victories and laugh out loud moments. And allow yourself to enjoy the process...don't say "I'm just a newbie...I don't know what I'm doing, this isn't real yet." It is real...there won't be one day when you've totally arrived (but there will be perfect moments) what you do now is just as valid as what the old timers long as it's authentic.

      have fun.

        careful with who you trust. there are lots of people with good motives who know what they're doing, but there are also peole who have bad motives and/or dont know what they're doing and its dangerous.

        also, you dont have to fit the tradition of others too. its about your path.
