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.

GRIEF AND GRATITUDE ARE KINDRED SOULS,
Grief and gratitude are kindred souls, each pointing to the beauty of what is transient and given to us by grace.
