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.

Trees are social beings.
Reposting, as a New Years Affirmation was to walk through nearby forest 5 times a week. I don't do resolutions because I know I will break them and then feel guilty. I affirm and do the best I can with gratitude. GOOD MORNING!
