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.

So, as we begin to understand how our bodies take care of us, we also learn how we can better take care of our bodies.
In today’s meditation, we discuss how it is our evolutionary impulse to progress in our lives, to seek and attain balance, and to be healthy and strong.
While our bodies naturally move toward balance, there are things we can do to aid in this process. For instance, we can send our bodies messages of love and support by eating nourishing foods, getting proper rest, and engaging in activities that make us feel truly alive. So, as we begin to understand how our bodies take care of us, we also learn how we can better take care of our bodies.
Our centering thought for today is: Balance is my true nature.
“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”— Buddha
