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.

My little changes amount to big benefits, even when 75 years old!
Welcome to the final week of our 21-Day Meditation Experience! We commend you on your ongoing commitment to care for your body, mind, and spirit.
In order to begin integrating all that we’re learning into our daily lives, it’s important to create a healthy lifestyle, or matrix, to support our goals. Examining all aspects of our lives – our food choices, the amount of time we take for exercise, or unhealthy habits that we long to change – will help us make those transformations, both small and large, that lead us to perfect health.
Our centering thought for today is: My little changes amount to big benefits.
