Blessing must arise from within your own mind. It is not something that comes from outside. When the positive qualities of your mind increase and the negativities decrease, that is what blessing means. The Tibetan word for blessing … means transforming into magnificent potential. Therefore, blessing refers to the development of virtuous qualities you did not previously have and the improvement of those good qualities you have already developed.

Day 14 – Many Breakthroughs, One Victory
You make a breakthrough every time you break out of a habitual response. Habit may veil our awareness, but awareness has the real power. At any given moment, if you notice how you really feel and what you really want, old habits begin to dissolve. People can break as many habits as they want by giving themselves freedom of choice.
Celebrate every breakthrough the minute it occurs, but know that in reality there is only one victory: the victory of awareness.
Our centering thought for today is:
I celebrate every breakthrough I make on the way to being free.
“Breakthrough is guaranteed, if there is enough light.” ― Sunday Adelaja
