Dear all,
I am getting more into enlightenment recently. Currently I am practing according to Bhante Vimalaramsi's twim meditation method. I have an online retreat coming up. It is supposed to be a fast method into the jhanas and to nibbana, referencing the Buddha's teachings from the suttas themselves. But i've also been watching Leo Gura's videos on YouTube, and so now I am becoming fascinated with using this substance to help with enlightenment. I am a long time drug user, but I have been clean for almost a year and a half, if you don't count being on suboxone, which I have successfully weaned down from and am almost off of. I have just started work after many years of isolation combined with drug use. I have also been listening to Martin Ball, Eckert Tolle, Sadhguru, and other enlightened speakers. I want to find a safe place and guide to have these experiences with. I have been meditating through mindfulness of breathing for over twelve years, with some years off.
