Back to the Basics: Conclusion

Overall, the personal experiments in the YTTP provide the opportunity to isolate certain practices, apply these practices in day-to-day life, and track the experience to find out what happens, if anything.  The structure provides support to ‘stay conscious’ otherwise you can’t report on anything.  So, after some initial resistance, I have come to value the entire personal experiment process – even the paper.  And, I hope to make it a practice of creating manageable personal experiments on an ongoing basis.
