Difference Between Sleep and Rest

How is your day?

Did you sleep okay last night?

When I get a good night’s sleep, I ask myself, why? What did I do differently? I search the internet for clues. This morning, I came across an mnn webpage about insomnia, I found something I could relate to—the image of the guy reading the book.

In bed, my husband reads the Bible (or books on spirituality) out loud to me while I rest. And I believe it helps me with my sleeping.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “A person may say that indigestion, fatigue, and insomnia cause distressed stomachs and aching heads. They will consult their ever-re-wiring brain in order to remember the troublesome cause when the remedy lies in forgetting the earthbound experiences…

“Genesis 2:2. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.

God rests in action. Imparting has not impoverished and can never impoverish the divine Mind. As understood in divine Science, no exhaustion follows the action of this Mind. The most satisfying and sweetest rest, even from a human standpoint, is in holy work.”

    You make an interesting point here. I agree that familiar, or soothing sounds, can definitely enhance the quality of one’s sleep.

On the offense team
The cliché, “The best defense is a good offense,” makes sense even to non-sports people like me. It can be applied to ball games, military combat, and I believe, it can be applied to religion. Too much defense and there is a lack of vision ...
