Yesterday morning I emerged from sleep slowly, lying on my back without moving, warm and quiet. As I reached for consciousness, I began to realize that I felt no pain. There was no throbbing in my toe, no aching in my knee, no knot in my thigh, not even a gurgle in my stomach. I couldn’t feel the tension in my jaw or the stiffness in my neck. Joints and muscles were all at rest. I lay there for a few moments, wallowing in this unexpected gift before sitting up and triggering the aches and pains of the day. But having reached this restorative state once, I know it exists, and I will find it again.
