Question: Sometimes when I fall asleep it's not because my mind is tired, but because it is roaming all over the place. What can you do when you mind starts roaming?Sri Chinmoy: Just think of the mind as a load of rubbish. Just collect it, put it all in a garbage bag and then throw it away. Feel that everything in your mind is dirty and filthy. Just look for a garbage bag and then fill it and throw it away.
