I think thats what we are doing here.The transmutation,miracle,happens in the Sanctum Sanctoram of ones consciousness.Nobody else has any roe in it.

the forum may not just be used for 'help' for some inner quest of those who visit, the 'beginners'. I don't think there are beginners, just people that don't realise simply asking the questions means they are already there....
some people may simply enjoy communication with others who have similar interests.
the miracle is done within - but it doesn't mean anyone Should leave certain things behind (though they can if they wish) .... what is on the outside is irrelevant if its all happening within, people can do what they like really.
One can be just as enlightened raising 6 children and looking after a husband and chatting on forums (though perhaps the subject of the forum may be more carefully picked) as one that 'leaves everything behind".
In fact, if i were to judge another, i may consider the latter to be taking the 'easy way out'.... how easy to not become attached when one rids themself of all things/relationships?
It seems to me it is a much more worthy challenge to have relationships and possessions and to be able to balance their worth, the effort to maintain them, the difference between want and need and the amount of Life that needs to be spent on these things and make sound decisions for a positive life than to just walk off and sit under a tree and wait for a charitable person to throw you a bone. Who really wants to gnaw at others half chewed bones?
there is always good advice to be read and given.... people to meet and greet...
