Atheist Religion

It’s 5am and I can’t sleep. I haven’t slept well in weeks. I’ve tried everything that’s recommended. Nothing works.

I remember when I was a kid and still believed in God. I’d say my nightly prayers and then straight to sleep. I’m not sure if it was the innocence of childhood or my faith that made it so easy but I’d try anything right now.

Maybe I could cobble together some personal spirituality, a mix of Alan Watts, meditation, maybe some Sam Harris and yoga. Maybe a sprinkle Krishnamurti. Has anyone out there put this together?

I could really do with the sleep.
