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 6 THE HEALING POWER OF AWARENESS
The Healing Power of Awareness
“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things they are transformed.” – Thích Nhất Hạnh
Today in meditation, we learn that awareness itself has the power to heal the pain and conflict we have in our relationships. Just as the body has a natural healing response when it is hurt, the mind also has the inherent intelligence and power to heal its emotional trauma and pain through awareness. The key is to not interfere with that healing response by getting in our own way through self-criticism, resentment, and blame. Meditation expands awareness and activates the healing response from our deepest self.
I call upon the healing power of awareness.
Om Hreem Namah Pure, transparent awareness is my essential nature.
