Art of Sleeping

Dawn 11

New Delhi

Time stops for body but the mind evolves into a space that connects the ethereal and disconnects the physical. Isn’t this happening a magic in itself?

In sleep gets consumed all the good, bad and ugly actions. After all of this we get another day. Another set of limited hours that can be spent any which way we want. For most a time table is there in place already in terms of job and other engagements. Thus gets very less space to do anything else, happening of anything new is rare. By the time noon ends; for most the day becomes similar as the hundreds of days that have already been dished out, No one in the moment believes that this breath is temporary, that this body is going to go. It doesn’t seem possible. Probably it doesn’t even cross ones mind.

What could be the solution? What is that meaning then everyone is looking for in life? Well, it is certainly different for different people but there are a few things that we all can do. Just before sleeping.

  1. It will be awesome for life, if by the time you sleep; you have digested all your dinner.
  2. A minute of conscious deep breathing.
  3. Remembering our day right from the beginning of today. Events, incidents, outcome, what led to what and importantly putting something better for tomorrow.
  4. Yes tomorrow, it will be great if you know how your day would look tomorrow. Just try to see the night before.

Hello, My name is Narayan. I am a teacher and an Ethnographer. After college i opted for teaching in far away villages of the Himalayas and later in Central rural India. And gradually as I wandered along the local streams and rivers, unending fields i learnt not only about myself but India and what is it to be Indian, living with various families throughout India. And to tell you, there is nothing more than a smile and an effort to make their children lives better that makes them happy. I have been independently working as a writer, photographer and filmmaker. For past many years I have been travelling the Indian subcontinent teaching and extensively documenting rural and her communities. Learning and understanding culture, communication and various ways of human mind and body. I am a student of History and did my masters in it. And later studied Sanskrit. When you realise the alignment of your spirit with the world around you, winds take you to places in the Himalayas, where you learn the ancient Yogic way of nerve healing, I can't really know myself but since then all the above mentioned things altogether has helped me generously to enter homes for shelter and food in the night. I come back to Delhi. Here mother and I run a small school for children.
