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.

A fine sailing vessel in my life in the last century!
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe... harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." --Mark Twain So glad I followed Mark Twain's advice, in joy life, ron
I am too glad that I sailed away young. Now, it is more of an interior "explore, dream & discover" and even more interesting! Sailboat is "Beaudacious" - a Morgan 46, I sailed professionally in the Bahamas and up the East Coast to New England - Marine Science under Sail! A fine vessel!
