I read a small something in a tiny book of his recently, about no real need to call them jhanas with this or that ingredient, but to simply experience and explore your own workings...I'll try to find it again.

Gain and loss, status and disgrace,
censure and praise, pleasure and pain:
these conditions among human beings are inconstant,
impermanent, subject to change.

Knowing this, the wise person, mindful,
ponders these changing conditions.
Desirable things don’t charm the mind,
undesirable ones bring no resistance.

His welcoming and rebelling are scattered,
gone to their end,
do not exist.
- Lokavipatti Sutta

that also is a really interesting thing that probably happens in the suttas to a degree as well! while all of the buddha's instructions are perfect, they don't all fall in sequentially and not all are appropriate for each practitioner.
