Today I achieved first jhana and...
Are you ready for it?
No big deal.
I realized I've accidentally slipped into it before about ten years ago.
It is kind of intense, energetically.
The main benefit is that my mind doesn't seem plagued by the five hindrances for several hours after coming out of jhana.
But the bliss of the first jhana that everyone talks about was similar to the energetic bliss you might feel in Metta meditation.
