Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long should I spend on each meditation?
A. As long as makes you happy. Two minutes.. 20... there is no "right" answer. Please don't be bound by what others do. Experiment, and discover what works best for you.
Q. What if I fall asleep?
A. Sweet dreams! There's nothing wrong with a quick cat nap. But you can minimize the odds of falling asleep by picking a spot other than your bed: a comfortable chair or sofa, for example. Try sitting up, instead of lying down. Bruce prefers to lie down on an out-of-the-way sofa, and guesses that he falls asleep perhaps one in five times... but he often wakes up with an amazing idea (such as the concept of this book).
Q. Can I do the same meditation more than once?
Q. I feel uncomfortable writing in books. Do people really write their thoughts and experiences on the left hand pages?
A. Many people do, including both Amy and Bruce. But if you really feel uncomfortable, try placing a sticky note in the space provided and write on that.
