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.

On my morning walks lately, I have been welcoming this strong sweet odor.
I investigated the source this AM, and it was from tiny white blooms on a vine
wrapping around the adjacent fence. I went over and gratefully breathed it in.
And I recognized it a Jasmine bringing a wonderful Spring gift to me.
