Through sleep you are able to recover energy, allowing the body to refuel and repair itself. So it would be wrong, especially at the start, to substitute meditation for sleep. In the beginning, practice is practice and sleep is sleep. Some people think that sitting in meditation is just the same as sleep.

But should not replace standing meditation, as standing meditation will create very powerful Qi in the body. As for lying meditation, when you are lying down it takes much longer for the Qi to circulate in the body, and so usually I only recommend lying meditation as a beginning method for someone who is very ill and cannot stand.

Most interestingly, awakening is not a one shot kind of a deal, because even after the most profound awakenings, we all have the tendency to fall asleep over and over again. Although this process has its own ebb and flow, you can catch and ride a wave of awakening by consciously identifying with the creator of the dream, the dreamer of the dream drama you call your life. Becoming one with the dreamer will encourage you to accept full responsibility for your destiny as well as empower you to manifest a more creative and abundant life for yourself and all your dream characters.
