A description of the experience

The Rig Veda [translated by Wendy Doniger]

In my vastness, I surpassed the sky and this vast earth.  Have I not drunk Soma?
Yes!  I will place the earth here, or perhaps there.  Have I not drunk Soma?
I will thrash the earth soundly, here, or perhaps there.  Have I not drunk Soma?
One of my wings is in the sky; I have trailed the other below.  Have I not drunk Soma?
I am huge, huge!  Flying to the cloud.  Have I not drunk Soma?
I am going – a well stocked house, carrying the oblation to the gods.  Have I not drunk soma?
