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.

The only bird not to get a worm
It's true, Ron, the early bird gets the worm.
So does the late bird and the bird in-between. Because, by design, there are always more than enough worms.
In fact, the only bird that doesn't get a worm is the bird that doesn't go out to get one.
