UPASANA ( DEVOTION ) | IWGR IV | PART 13 | PAGE 25-25 | RAMA राम
|| WHY IS SLEEP NECESSARY ? ||
Every day , while working , the common person in general regards this world and the body as real .
But power or energy for work is to be obtained only from GOD who is the ultimate source of energy . Compared to GOD , the seeming reality of this world stands nowhere .
Sleep throws humans on the ground and teaches them a lesson every time that there is no reality in this world and that Atma ( GOD ) alone is real .
In sleep , since the world is lost , it cannot be real or everlasting . Though unconsciously , we are made to realise in sleep that there remains ultimately nothing , but the only reality , Atma or GOD .
In Chhandogya Upanishad ( 6 , 8 , 2 ) it has been mentioned that :
" Just as a bird , tightly fastened to a string , cannot go any where , but ultimately has to take refuge in its nest , so , too , this mind may roam any where , but ultimately it has to find rest only in Praan , the Life-Force , because this mind is tied to it ( Life-Force ) " .
Even unconsciously , one is refreshed and gets a lot of energy when one is in the deep sleep state .
As such , one must feel much more refreshed and blessed with immeasurable power and energy , when one is consciously merged in Upasana and meditation .
Whenever you find yourself afflicted with sorrow , anger and mean desires , quietly make use of cold water , drink it , wash your hands and face , take a bath , if necessary , and you are sure to be refreshed and have peace of mind .
Besides this , go deep in meditation and convert the smoke of anger into fire of Jyan or Divine-knowledge .
You will be immensely benefited and be full of peace .
