This week’s brand new Higher Thought question – which came to me unstoned – is:
If sleep could speak, what would it say?
No one really understands me.
I am vaster than the ocean and more powerful than water.
I provide a foundation to your existence.
I am the soil in which your deepest roots are nourished.
People would like to “need less” of me. This is delusional thinking.
I am your soul’s playground.
I’m your ego death every day.
I am your real life.
I am where the spirits live.
Why don’t you come to me sooner when I call?
I love you.
Nothing has any flavor or depth without me.
To deliberately deprive someone of me is a form of spiritual depravity.
I’m a healing mist in your mind.
I breathe life into your days.
You are never more alive than when you’re in my embrace.
I have your back, and your front, and your sides, and your up and down too.
I make you aware of things you would not otherwise know.
I am the place where you know all those things that you don’t let yourself know when you’re “awake.”
Here are my answers. I think they form a type of poem, would you agree?
What do YOU think sleep would say, if it could speak?
My friend Brenda suggests it might say, “You know you want me.”
