How many times, how often has it happened, you are so tired, you just want to lie down and sleep… the mind just won’t stop chattering. Ok some of the information may be interesting, and a tiny wee bit may be new to you… but …. it (chatter) just won’t stop … and you are exhausted. What do you do, what can you do… nothing …
Think about it, the more you focus on it, the more attention it (chatter/noise) gets.. the more frustrated/ annoyed you get..
PL Precept # 5 One’s self is lost by being emotional
Get up,stop trying to force quiet… do something else, distract your attention, never mind the time, or trying to make something happen that isn’t happening.. Let it go!

Just walking into another room … sit down at the dining room table, have a glass of warm milk, I have a small piece of felt that I put in the back of a small canvas I had lying around that I had not put to use yet, I have five dice that sit there.. I pick them up and throw them.. I get three tries… I t ry for 5 of a kind of course, but I see what turns up. could be I will end up with only a pair .. maybe a full house.. doesn’t matter, it is the distraction, of rolling the dice, hearing them, watching for what turns up etc. A few throws and I’m usually ready to head back to bed.. the cycle is broken, the bed looks welcoming, and 7 out of 10… I will drift off to sleep. definitely I will have a different mind space.
Give importance to listening, looking, thinking, doing and speaking. Don’t be entrenched in your own thoughts … you will not hear or catch the hints/inspiration from others
