Yes. Logically should be. Except psychedelic experience doesn't last after a point but samadhi will continue for ever & ever. And likewise the altered brain chemistry.
Though what actually happens, we can only know if we ever reach samadhi! 😅
Not at types of samadhi last forever.
Oh yes. Read that somewhere. Thanks for reminding.
I entered a state of samadhi last year while smoking weed. Shiva spoke to me asking if I wanted to experience reality and to keep smoking. Ever since then I’ve been meditating which I never did prior and chanting to get back to that state.
From April till December I did nothing but meditate and experienced some wild things. While deep in meditation one day with eyes closed, my head turned to the right. I saw through the wall to my right and noticed a dead mouse/rat next to my cupboard with a gaseous vapor next to it. The vapor shot up into the sky and I fell out of the meditation. A different time I came out of it saying something like the endless dreamer(Vishnu) mouse/rat could be kamadeva disturbing shiva during meditation and being killed by his third eye.
I asked myself [this very thing](https://www.reddit.com/r/trulylost/comments/grjqsg/interested_to_hear_your_opinion_on_my_experiences/). However, I find that Sadhguru, usually more than other masters, warns about this in many ways. He also classifies many subtle layers of physicality, but never talks about the last, because he has no way of expressing it. This is why Isha Yoga isn't oriented towards generating an experience, rather honing foundations and clarity of perception.
Hmm, I think I understand what you are getting at. Although, isn’t all our experience arising from our brain chemistry?
He has been implying that the nonphysical dimension is much more than our brain chemistry…
Oh, maybe I didn’t understand where you were coming from after all. In terms of what he says or implies about these dimensions, it doesn’t really matter to me much personally; I have no experience in the matter so everything I think about it is my subjective speculation anyway.
Yes this is most likely what is happening. But I'm sure there are insights you can get from the experience regardless. I know I have benefited tremendously from meditation even though I haven't had any big crazy experiences.
It is, everything is just some chemical reaction in our brain after all
When you say "merely", you are assuming the physical world is all there is. Our minds simply cannot comprehend these states as it has no experience of them, nor will they ever will because these experiences are not thoughts.
it was really an awesome experience for me, thanks to myco_ecstacy on IG, you can link him up to get yours
