INSOMNIA: In these days of electronic growing technologies, human life has been on an insurmountable problem. It has made a big impact on sleep, which is very essential for human life. Any kind of workday needs a very peaceful night’s sleep because it repairs the emotional, mental and physical torture of the day. Let’s look at the reality. It has been reported that over 35 million people have lost the ability to have a sound sleep through the night. In the olden times, people used to lose sleep after the age of 50. However, these days even the young generation is falling prey to this disease of sleepless nights. Human life is considered at the supreme position amongst all the living beings on earth. There are four essential qualities, which are common in humans and animal life. These are food, sleep, fear and procreation. Humanity has been endowed with wisdom. One who lacks wisdom and knowledge is no better than an animal. Of course, the bookish knowledge is very essential for making money for a comfortable living, but wisdom is the true knowledge, which can lead us to self-realization and the experience of oneness. Self-realization can help us be free from all worldly diseases.

The statistics tell that mind produces more than thousands of thoughts in a minute. There is only one thing which can make us capable of stopping the high flow of thoughts is meditation. Meditation teaches us how to keep a check on the productions of thoughts. Meditation is the only source which can take us close to the soul; which is a genuine part of the Divine Light. The biggest hurdle which stops to go near the soul is the mind. The mind in its entirety must be immersed in God and this is the easiest path to a peaceful life and salvation.
