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.

Unity of Charleston
This Lenten season, fast from negative thinking and feast on positive thinking and what is right about your life, the world, your family, etc. This is Unity's take on what Lent means in a nutshell. Unless you feel it would help you on your spiritual journey, we don't give stuff up for Lent in Unity. The stuff we want to give up usually is tied to negative thinking anyway so why not go to the root cause of the unhealthy behavior, problem, discord, etc. We do fast from negative thinking. And we try more than usual to be positive in our attitude.
