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 7 — The Beauty of Power without Ego
We don’t often associate power with the concept of beauty, because we usually connect great power in Nature with great destruction – earthquakes, hurricanes, forest fires – but those are extreme examples of Nature. It is easy to overlook the everyday sort of power such as gravity holding the planets, stars, and galaxies together in beautiful orbital patterns. Every year the magnificent power of Spring brings a tremendous resurgence of growth and rebirth in the plant and animal worlds, silently yet beautifully.
In today’s meditation, we look within at the power emerging in our life and recognize the force of our love, compassion, joy, strength, creativity, intelligence, and purpose is truly beautiful because it is connected with the grace and balance of Mother Nature herself.
