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.

MIGHTY EIGHTH AIR FORCE IN WW2
There is a wonderful museum of the "Mighty Eighth" in Savannah. I get to go back to interview the last pilot of the bomber Liberator B24, which flew from England to Germany at night on bombing missions. 26000 airmen died (2 of 5 did not make it). Thousands of more were injured or became POW's like Sgt. Tom Barnhart(the Hogan Hero), who was one of my first interviews.
