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 PATH TO EMPOWERMENT Day 8 — The Power to Find Safety and Security
Day 8 — The Power to Find Safety and Security Deepok Chopra
One of the common motivations we all have for becoming empowered is to be strong enough to feel secure and safe wherever we are. We want to have a foundation inside that allows us to be both stable and resilient in the face of life’s challenges and losses. We can never develop an abiding sense of security and strength by defending and fortifying ourselves against the unknown. If we feel weak and insecure, our fear will always remain despite our defenses.
In today’s meditation, we learn that only inner security and strength can give us the feeling of real safety and peace we are looking for. That power comes from our silent self we experience when we are living in the moment and when we settle into pure awareness during meditation.
