Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Most of our lives are filled with information about how to do this or that. I find it interesting to look at these assumptions.
How about sleep? We are supposed to get 8 hours. We are supposed to make the bedroom a place for sleep or sex. We are supposed to turn off the phones and the T.V. and just relax. This is what science tells us to do. I agree.
However, how about the time in the night at about 3 a.m. when that internal wake-up happens and there is no way to turn it off. I call tossing and turning, the bed dance. We know that we need to get back to sleep but..... So after about 20 minutes of this awaking, what should we do. We need to get up and enjoy this time. We can read, talk to a loved one, have sex, whatever else seems enjoyable. We have programmed ourselves to look at the clock and say something is wrong with me. I can't sleep so there must be something wrong. These long winter nights are here for a reason. Lay down the sword and just allow the night (and day) to progress. Become aware of that inner feeling and say Hi.
