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 Wisdom of Your Body - “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things, and only the wise can see them.”
We’ve discovered how important it is that we pay attention to our bodies’ intuition – how our bodies speak to us. In today’s meditation, we learn that how we speak to our bodies also plays a vital role in our health and well-being.
Based on how we interpret what’s happening around us, the brain and central nervous system respond by sending our cells a constant stream of messages that directly impact our physical state. Positive messages draw healthy responses from our bodies in the form of stronger immune systems and healthier sleep patterns, among many other benefits that can last a lifetime.
Our centering thought for today is: I trust the wisdom of my body.
