in reply to on wasted votes ...

As particle said, nobody is forcing you to use all your votes. However, if you really must, you can spend some of them on tutorials and reviews. A few weeks ago, somebody sent a good piece of advice (Overlooked Gems). Have a look at it.
Or you can go to other monks home nodes (start with the saints, but don't forget pontiffs, bishops, abbots and so on) and consider the nodes that they propose.
Or just use the links after my signature :)

And remember, votes are not wasted when you don't use them. Votes are wasted when you cast them just for the sake of it, instead of applying your judgement.

To complete belg4mit's quest, this is the node about Amen. And also its parent thread is a great source of meditation.
