Getting enough sleep

March 12, 2006 | No comments yet

“How do I get a good night’s sleep?” tired people are asking.

Sleep has turned into big business in the United States, according to Forbes magazine. Millions of slumber-seekers are turning to pills, therapies, sleep labs, gimmicks, expensive mattresses and products promising better rest. Yet, the problem of sleep-deprivation continues to grow.

A spiritual solution is needed.

Rest is not a state of unconsciousness. True rest is a peaceful and harmonious state of spiritual consciousness.

Anxious, fearful, self-centered thoughts torpedo attempts to rest. They keep one awake, disturbed and concerned about tomorrow. Spiritually inspired thoughts, focused on the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, are peaceful objects of attention that calm and rest perspective.

When it comes to getting better sleep, the primary need is not for more hours of unconsciousness, but for a more spiritually inspired consciousness.

Go to bed with peaceful thoughts of God in control of your life, and you will wake with peaceful thoughts of God in control of your life. The slumber from beginning to end will be restful.

“When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.”
