    I just read the Dalai Lama says that sleep is the best meditation.
    My teachers also, taught me that if you keep dropping off when you want to meditate, it does not matter! It is a different kind of sleep. The last thing you want to do is having coffee before to prevent this: for coffee, like alcohol, is the enemy of meditation.
    Phew!

    It usually means you're tired and need to sleep more.

    It's right. Sleep all it wants you to.
    Meditation is now to do with your idea of doing it. It is all to do with allowing whatever is happening.
    Meditation is not only useless, but quite a deadly poison, if you keep forcing your agenda...and then spend your life analyzing it.
    Allowing is meditating. Sitting is not important either, setting a separate time for it is not necessary if you are mellow, supple and bendy enough to get out of your own way.
    Sleep and sleep happily.....meditation is in progress

    Meditation for me gives me clarity. Oh sleep is my true vacation into lucid dreams .... oh yes.

    Falling asleep is common while meditating because your mind get relaxed and that time soul conscious not body conscious
