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.

The Only Real Time is Here and Now
Day 7 – No More Time Illusions In today’s meditation, we learn to break the illusion of what it means to live in the present moment. We tend to believe that if our mind is watchful and analytical, it is in the present moment. However if we look closer, we see that almost all that mental and emotional activity is tied up in projecting memories of the past, or fears of the future onto the present. Genuine present awareness is open, accepting, and free from the limitations of the past and future. The experience of pure awareness in meditation reveals what truly being in the present means, and with practice, meditation fully dispels the illusions of time.
