I sometimes feel shocked on seeing how people get up from the bed and say, “Oh God, I am so tired.” What foolishness! I simply become confused looking at people sleeping until lunch time!
What is the need?
Insomnia is defined as the inability to initiate sleep or remain so throughout the night or to feel refreshed on waking up. Delta rhythms of the brain are the slowest, running between 1 and 3 cycles per second, and are the most prominent in your deep sleep.
Why do you think you feel so tired when you wake up in the morning?
Why do you people get tired?
What is the need of sleep in the first place?
The whole idea of sleep is nonsense!
Your mood in the morning depends on the mood in which you fell asleep in. If you fall asleep in a stressful and irritable mood, chances are you will wake up grumpy.
Awaken the Gudakesha in You!
In the monumental Hindu epic, the Mahabharata, the great warrior prince, Arjuna is an exemplary example of the one living with the extra ordinary power of having – conquered sleep.
Lord Sri Krishna, the complete incarnation, while delivering the Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna, refers to him as “Gudakesha”, meaning one who has conquered sleep.
He implies that Arjuna has overcome sleep, signifying darkness or ignorance. Therefore. Arjuna is ready to receive what Sri Krishna is about to deliver. While addressing Arjuna as Gudakesha, one who is in the light, having conquered sleep, Krishna readies Arjuna for liberation.
How to be Krishna’s Gudakesha?
Here is a simple process.
1. Vanish Your Sleep and Tiredness
Absorb the energy that is continuously around you. Just become a little receptive.
The moment the mind says, “Time to sleep, I am tired”, you just say, “Keep quiet”.
And I tell you honestly: it works. The tiredness simply vanishes.
2. Relax, and Sleep at Will
When you lie down on the bed to go to sleep, simply relax your whole body, from your feet to your face.
First feel your feet fully relax, then your legs, your hips, your waist, your chest, your neck and finally your head.
Have every muscle, every limb relax. The only feeling that should remain is relaxation.
With this feeling, go to sleep.
You will see that you will wake up fully rejuvenated and fully awake.
