You should learn the basic concepts, but there is no 1-2-3, and everything's fixed. The mix of experiences and issues that comprise your life to date are not like anyone else's. The way in which you apply knowledge to your life that can lead you toward a greater awareness cannot be orchestrated by someone else.
So, seek knowledge, but know that it is not a complete meal like you get at a drive-thru. The knowledge others give you only provides the tools for you to create your own recipe for life — one that matches your taste!
