I've been reading Srila Prabhupada's books, but sometimes I need personal advice. It's not always possible for me to visit a temple, so I prefer to write to senior devotees whose answers I can trust.

This is a nice procedure, but it is also good to have guidance from someone who knows you and can judge your situation according to your particular time, place and circumstance. I suggest that you also seek out senior devotees where you are and consult with them now and again.

Furthermore, if you write down your questions and continue reading you may find that Krishna will also give you some insight into the matter. It will take some patience however; not all questions can be answered immediately because they may require some spiritual maturity before the answer can be understood.
