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 10 The Joy of an Intimate Relationship
The Joy of an Intimate Relationship
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.” – Thomas Merton
The most intimate relationship we can share with another is a soul connection. Physical and emotional intimacy are profound human experiences of sharing, but when we connect our true self to another true self, we experience a spiritual love and joy that goes beyond personal pleasure or affection.
Today’s meditation is about finding that place of spiritual love within that recognizes our true self in the true self of the beloved.
I am growing into spiritual union with my true self.
Om Sarvatva Namah The wholeness of the universe is my true nature.
