Can’t Sleep at Night?

 

Don’t count sheep, count your breath. Lying relaxed on your back, take your mind off the world and yourself. Just breath in on “one” and out on “two.” Imagine that out-breath disappearing into infinite space above. Follow it all the way to infinity and then back. Follow the in-breath as it disappears into the infinity within your own self. No thinking! Just feeling and letting go. Count up to twenty and back down to zero again. Do it twice or three times. Don’t be in a hurry, you’re not going anywhere. Breathe very, very slowly and don’t expect to go to sleep, just let it happen.
