When you experience other states of consciousness, your awareness is expanded. You realize that there is something beyond, or transcendental to, the states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping. This other state is a fourth state, called in Sanskrit 'turiya', (fourth). MMY has called this state the 'Absolute' (page 182 SBAL).

According to the Vedas, you can experience the Absolute by the use of etheogens, Soma, namely Amanita and/or Psilocybin, Rig Veda, (Mandala X. 43-4). MMY says that through yoga, this substance can be secreted in the 'gut'. Patanjali agrees with this and adds, that also through the use the substances, 'simples', in Yoga Sutra (IV, 1.0).

According to Sr. don Juan, there is a 'separate reality'. A state of consciousness beyond the normal states we usually experience. This state can be experienced through the use of etheogens, or according to Patanjali, by the use of yogic enstasis.

The enlightenment tradition in India begins with the historical Buddha - Shakya was the first yogin in recorded history. According to the Shakya, there is 'another shore', beyond the known. We must 'cross over' to the other shore. Go beyond the normal state, transcend the relative, and be free.

However, there is a twist at the end: there really is no 'other shore', and there's really no going. In reality, you are already there, but like looking through a glass, darkly, we can see in the clear light. In the Upanishads we read 'Tat Tvam Asi', 'Thou art That' - (Chandogya 6.) we are already there, but we don't realize it.

In a final twist, Shakya says: 'You take a raft to get to the other shore. When you arrive on that shore, there is no other shore, and no going. Once on the shore you don't need a raft anymore. Only a foolish person would then carry a boat around on his head!' (SM III 8; SS I 9-10).
