rest in natural great peace

rest in natural great peace
this exhausted mind
beaten helplessly by
karma and neurotic thoughts
like the relentless fury
of the pounding waves
in the infinite ocean
of samsara
rest in natural great peace

  1. As things stand I'm not altogether pleased with the idea of dying. If I could be assured that some pleasing image would persist forever, I might feel differently. Death is such a personal matter.

  2. it is very personal, yes. and i sense that each one of us gets exactly the view we need to come to terms with this most potent experience. it's good, i think, to lean into such a great mystery while we still have our wits about us.
