A couple things might be said.
As you can see I don't have a picture. A bit shy. At one point during my time on this site I used my name. This and some other things have led to a severe level of embarrassment on my part.
I normally would have tried to delete this post shortly after posting. Due to embarrassment. Yet the desire for some Samadhi is there. I must also say that I have forgotten some of the thoughts I normally would have had with an insight. When they come back I will post more.

I tell my parents, I have no clue.

Do you have any attainments?

Edit. Hope I caught you at a good angle for this. No worries ☺️

Whatever. I just landed two paths in a day. Just needed that extra bit of information, from the internet, and light was cast, mind tries to catch up. Acceleration.

The usual advice is to wait awhile (suggestion: a year) and see how it holds up. By waiting, I don’t mean do nothing, just don’t conclude anything. So, see how it holds up.

Allow some of that chronological time to pass.

I know this is supposed to be about third path. So I will shift in that direction. I might only be at 3rd path maybe late into 2nd. Or I might be only at first path. That I am secure on.

There really seem to be many more insight cycles than paths. Maybe most of them are just repetitions, or maybe the upgrades come in many small packages.

The only way of being in solid third jhana with vipassana, also known as third path, is to experience N.S. with an overlay of physical abnormality or distinction. This is the only thing that gives true happiness.

If you are traveling down the jhanic arc when you achieve N.S. you will experience degredation of the mind as a primary factor. Traveling up is equivalent to a distinct disregulation of the body. Kk

I want to stress that first path is the only one I did on my own. All the rest was hallucinations.

I have been reporting on here several things. Of Fourth path and degredation of the mind and or body. Could it be that I am actually finding out what a full-blown manic episode entails.?

Ah, Sleeping Buddha, what a treat to come upon this thread, just when i was feeling lonely as an insane person among all these utterly pragmatic hard-core dharma folks! You spiritual nut job, you wonder, my brother. I'm surprised you didn't go for the trifecta or a hat trick the day you banged out 3rd and 4th path, while you had some momentum. Then you could have told all these fourth path losers to fuck off from your new altitude of the Big Fifth.

I myself do only the will of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, with Whom i am One, especially when He tells me to take off my clothes in public, which is sort of my specialty. No brag, just fact, my man.

Also, let's face it, we're not the only ones, even on this thread. Look at Shargrol--- someone told him early on that he needed to power up and do noting; he heard it as "nothing," per his own testimony here (honesty is invariably a prominent trait of the insane), and he has been doing nothing at top speed ever since.

I could go on, but God just told me to shut the fuck up.

love, tim

Next time he tells you to take off clothes tell him to do the same. That would be what I call quite interesting event ...

I'm afraid He would take it wrong. That's the last thing i need, to get MORE fucked by God.

I'm afraid He would take that invitation wrong. I've been fucked bad enough by God already.

Do not get intimidated by God's immense being.
Under the surface it is very much like all of us out here.

How would you rather be, a Titan with a broken leg, bedridden or a young student in the Tushita heaven (insert comment).

It seems like people with health problems might be closer to God. He/she seems far away right now. I know what I have to do but I am not sure how to do it. I need to be more comfortable with the idea of debilitating accidents.

Hey, don’t try to force anything, okay? It will come to you. Sometimes letting things rest and taking care of the mammalian body helps opening things up.

That's what I am going for.

Edit, I live with my parents. My brother is coming over later, which can facilitate a change in texture of my communal experience. I bet someone on here can relate to that.

Okay, good. I’m autistic and sometimes find it difficult to contextualize short posts and may therefore read things too literally. You had me a bit worried there. All the best wishes for your wellbeing and your practice.

Noting of the noting fractal. Two steps is probably far enough. emoticon
