im a brand new buddhist with my prior beliefs being closely comparable to the buddha's. as far as meditating goes, im looking for direct references from any sutta or collection that provides some wisdom. i havent the knowledge or experience to pursue some sort of "divinity" so i am following some classical advice and turning to the darma. thank you for your generosity

This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!
Blog - Some Suttas Translated.
"Others will misconstrue reality due to their personal perspectives, doggedly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our own personal perspectives, nor doggedly holding onto them, but will discard them easily. This effacement shall be done."
