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.

I heal my past by being in the present.
Day 8 – The Wounds of Time Can Be Healed The wounds of time are the negative experiences of our past or our anxieties about the future. These memories and negative emotions hinder our ability to fully remain in the present moment. We begin to heal these emotional debts by noticing our reactions to triggering situations. We observe our responses without judging or condemning them. This simple act of letting conscious awareness be present and alert to our reactions will begin to heal these old wounds. In today’s meditation, we experience this conscious awareness in the stillness of our mind.
