Hello dear people! - Question about experience I had years ago.

Years ago in my teenage years I've got addicted to amphetamine. Making long story short,  I became so  heavly addicted and got to the point I wanted to commit suicide..Then once I had been pulled out of my body and I've seen white briliant light. And that white brilliant light "said" to me that's not over and I have to acomplish certain things.. After that my addiction just vanished. I'm currious about your opinions about this experience? Thank you!

Interesting experience that was of benefit to you and everyone around you. A mystery fabricated by the mind. That does not make it any less real though, as everything you experience is a fabrication of the mind. I think. emoticon

Experiences like the one you describe seem to happen quite a bit. I am curious about what you think about the experience and what it means for you now, in relation to meditation or insight practices.

Thank you all for input.
​​​​​​​I Don't really know what it means to me. I'm sure something happened to me but don't know what. I'm starting with meditation and insight practice so I have no opinions about the experience right now.

I am no expert of maps, but that does sound like the A&P (Arising and Passing away).

The following is copied from https://www.dharmaoverground.org/discussion/-/message_boards/message/98873

Case Study # 2:

Report: “I had this incredible energy coursing through my body, tingled all over, saw white lights, and had unitive experiences.”

Diagnosis: 4th ñana, Knowledge of the Arising and Passing Away of Phenomena.

“But I had it while on drugs (or in a dream). I never even meditated.”

Doesn’t matter. 4th ñana. Have a nice day.

“But it was so real. I saw God. I know it was enlightenment.”

No, it was the 4th ñana.


@weirdgnome Would you happen to have been cycling through the dark night stages after that experience?
