    Question What school do this newbie's beliefs and experiences fit into?

    Hi guys. Quick question. From what I've personally experienced I'm a monist, I've felt on numerous occasions that there is only one Thing, one Mind, in existence and that everything else is only real insofar as it's composed of/a product of that mind. I'm basically getting caught up between idealism and realism, advaita and vishishta advaita, and it's making finding a deity tradition really difficult for me. I stick with being a Vaishnava for now because, tbh, while I was Buddhist and didn't know much about Hinduism I decided to use intentionally marijuana as an entheogen (I'm clean of everything but my e-cigarette now btw) and I suddenly felt my insides feel more solid and something like a line extending upward from my third eye chakra about a foot into the air and I blurted something out about being Krishna. Whoops, made myself Krishna conscious before I knew that was a thing! Anyways, I hope I didn't run afoul of any rules there, I just felt it was an important detail. I'm just a neophyte tripping over all the details over here.

    Thank you for your time.

    Hi!

    Just take your time, things will fall into place for you.
    Spend some time reading and maybe even visiting a nearby temple?
    Good luck! <3
