I like this post, and its premise that meditation and sleep are connected. I like to go to sleep between 10 and 11 pm, which I find very essential for a good rest and for getting the full benefit of this type of natural meditation.

Thanks, Molly, for the comment. I would like to reiterate your thought that sleep is indeed a form of natural meditation. Because, let us think for a moment what we do in meditation. We try to establish a deeper contact with the spiritual part of our being which is already present inside of us. When we go to sleep, this very same process happens naturally. Our consciousness is withdrawn from the physical reality and goes back to the astral, mental and spiritual realms where it is nurtured by love and light. That is why, if we go to sleep satisfied, in a pleasant environment and on time, we find ourselves so refreshed and restored in the morning.
