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.

So true for so many veterans!
My Brother was standing by his helicopter looking devastated in the photo
Years later, doing research for this work, I looked closely at photo, and noticed it was full of body bags, I asked Dr. doing research on PTSD and asked him - could this be ASTD? Acute Stress Traumatic Disorder. He agreed, hopefully leading to new diagnosis that can be used to get soldiers suffering from this disorder off the battlefield. Barry should have not been flying, especially with only two weeks left!
