Leigh Brasington's jhana resources are invaluable.

Although I have not been able to repeat it, I am very fortunate to have reached 1st Jhana a couple of times because I now know what Leigh and others are saying is true (atleast for the first jhana).

However, If I was proficient in jhana practice I don't think I would waste any time arguing about it on a forum :)

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
