Last night I tried practice meditation and reading the book on 8FT by Bhikkhu Bodhi, and immediately my practice become much more focus again.

I am considering starting recording in a note book aspects of the nikaya that I am 100% sure is correct. For now I am sure 4NT, 8FP, foundation of mindfulness are confirmed.

Those minor details, different people her will have different opinions. Even within details of the 4NT and 8FP, I notice there will be differences in interpretations especially on the concentration portion.

Full understanding of 4NT and 8FP depends on full understanding of doctrine.
