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.

Your Creative Self Is Already Here
Day 9 –
You don’t have to do anything new to become your creative self – that is already your essential nature – you only need to give it the outlet it always seeks in the present moment. Letting go of our resistance to being creative and spontaneous often comes down to releasing our self-limiting beliefs and attitudes of low expectations. Such beliefs could be that you are not a creative person, or that you don’t deserve love, joy, and fulfillment.
Today we discover that as we gain contact with our creative self in meditation, these self-limiting beliefs begin to dissolve, allowing the natural expression of our joy, love and creativity to blossom in our lives.
Our centering thought for today is:
I find joy in creative living.
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.” – Carl Jung
