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.

More important to be awake to what is happening than to be one who knows.

—Zenkei Blanche Hartman, “The Zen of Not Knowing”
I could not find a book called The Zen of Not Knowing , but I did find The Book of Not Knowing
