Lately, I have been having difficulty getting to sleep. The other night I slept six hours, four hours the night before last, and last night I couldn't sleep at all. I know correlation does not mean causation, but can anyone comment on whether or not meditation practice (specifically, anapanasati for 45 minutes 2-3 times a day) can cause sleep difficulties? I don't feel as bad as I normally feel when sleep deprived.
I do not want my house to be walled in on sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible. But I refuse to be blown off my feet by any.- Gandhi
With persistence aroused for the highest goal's attainment, with mind unsmeared, not lazy in action, firm in effort, with steadfastness & strength arisen, wander alone like a rhinoceros.
Not neglecting seclusion, absorption, constantly living the Dhamma in line with the Dhamma, comprehending the danger in states of becoming, wander alone like a rhinoceros.- Snp. 1.3
