Rest in natural great peace, this exhausted mind,
Beaten helpless by karma and neurotic thought,
Like the relentless fury of the pounding waves
In the infinite ocean of samsara*.
Rest in natural great peace.
* the cycle of death and rebirth to which life in the material world is bound.
“Rest in natural great peace” by Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche
You simply want to rest and have whatever transformation is to come to you to come. If you could indeed give in to this desire fully, it would speed the transformation along quite nicely.

Maybe 2018 has been a full year for you? In the busy doing sometimes we don’t give time for integration as the year goes by. Sometimes we get excited about plans and goals for 2019 without any down time.
We are feeling the need to respect the cycle of doing and resting, of extension and going inwards. We wish you rest and inner nourishment during this time of year and always.
We are taking a break with newsletters and blogs until the second half of January, allowing plenty of time for the rest and space for the new to enter.
Love, James, Catia and Juliana for the Miracle Choice Family.
