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 2 Ideal Relationships and Where They Come From
Ideal Relationships and Where They Come From
“For I no sooner in my heart divin'd my heart, which by a secret harmony still moves with thine, joined in connection sweet.” – John Milton
In today’s meditation, we learn that ideal relationships are based on how we relate and connect to our core self. To feel loved, respected, cared for, and close to others, we must find and feel those values for ourselves first. All that we seek in relationships will only be found if we start by knowing and actualizing love in our own being.
My relationships begin within, through love and caring for myself.
