Falling Asleep

As you fall asleep tonight, take a break from saving the world. With your radiant mind, kiss your eyelids gently shut, then follow your breath to the glow that flowers beneath your breastbone. Rest your mind on the pillow of your heart.

Now feel the Lord of Creation enfolding your body in the petals of an emerald lotus. Sink into the hum of silence at the center, a quietness deeper inside you than your own name.

Drown in the green depths of the heart's space, and know that this primal repose in your Self is the seed of all other affections. Your love is one and the same as God's love for you.
Don't think for one moment that this is imagination. All else is imagination.
