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.

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 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.

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.

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

Edit This is obviously ambivilant I hope it's not too ambivilant.

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 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.?

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.
