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.

Optimism is a strategy...
Optimism is a strategy for making a
better future. Because unless you believe
that the future can be better,
you are unlikely to step up and
take responsibility for making it so.
