Rest in natural great peace

When you are very tired of the news - of heat, riots, wars, the decline of nations, suffering in general - these words are soothing.  Here "neurotic thoughts" is not used so much in a psychological sense, but as a description of what goes on in the usual busy conditioned mind. 

Rest in natural great peace this exhausted mind,
Beaten helpless by karma and neurotic thoughts
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara.
Rest in natural great peace.

Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
