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.

Developing a strong ego, yet balanced, is vital for our maturation to an adult.
Attachments and Ego
“When there is attachment with position, status, power, wealth, gains or comforts, it gives rise to ego;
And it is ego that separates man from God.” - Tejguru Sirshree Tejparkhiji
