They main point is to find a Guru that will teach you.

I highly recommend the book "Introduction to Tantra," by Lama Yeshe, as well as "The Crystal and the Way of Light," by Namkhai Norbu, which I notice has already been recommended to you. Start praying for the right teacher to show up. You can say Padmasambhava's mantra for this purpose also. Probably your two biggest allies are internet search engines, and ASPIRATIONS.
