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 20 – Living without Burdens (freed from the restraints of old habits and self-criticisms)
In today’s meditation, we explore how life feels when the old burdens have lifted. When our mind, body, and spirit become lighter, our life becomes a field of new possibilities.
As we are freed from the restraints of old habits and self-criticisms, we may feel a lightness of mood, confidence, and joyfulness. With an expansive spirit we feel unlimited, peaceful, and creative.
Our centering thought for today is:
I embrace my life with ease and joy.
“We think so often that we are helpless, but we're not. We always have the power of our minds… Claim and consciously use your power.” ― Louise L. Hay
