Does anybody have any suggestions?
When you have your eyes closed no one will know whether you're doing this style of meditation, that style of meditation, or thinking about ladies in bikinis.
Therefore, if you're comfortable that you do not need additional instruction, practice as you see fit.
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'." (Snp 3.6)
"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
