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.

It is not the ego causing most problems, but the over busy mind.
Wisdom, the monkey ( busy) mind is a real culprit in our lives:
Eventually you will see that the real cause of problems is not life itself. It’s the commotion the mind makes about life that really causes problems.
― Michael A. Singer, The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself
