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.

Mindfulness has to do with paying attention to what's happening in the moment without judgment.
As Mirabai Bush says, "Mindfulness has to do with paying attention to what's happening in the moment without judgment.” People who practice mindfulness have higher emotional IQs (self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills), are more authentic, more in touch with their intuition, play more naturally to their strengths, make better decisions, and are able to more easily tap into their inner creativity.
