Even the "slow road up" is open to misinterpretation and delusion.
"Altered states" produced by drugs *may* be educational (in that you
can find out what hapens when they are taken) but their propensity for
delusion and/or misinterpretation is high.
The important thing is what you have called "the connection to the
higher mind" - once this is firmly established by practise and repeated
experience in the everyday waking state, then the connection can be
made (when necessary) at will, without any other aids.
