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.

I find a reason to hope in every situation. When our attention is aligned with the universal intelligence of Nature, we find a way through our challenges and difficulties
The Secret to Finding Hope Everywhere
In today’s meditation we expand our awareness, which shifts our entire orientation to the world. Our perspective transforms from one that only sees problems to one that only sees the solutions. When our attention is aligned with the universal intelligence of Nature, we find a way through our challenges and difficulties. Another way to understand this experience of unbound awareness is to realize that everywhere we look, we find hope.
As we learned this week, one of the key components to finding hope everywhere is the ability to stay rooted in our calm. But when our lives are upended indefinitely and we’re navigating new and disconcerting territory, stress can get the better of us. In 7 Days to Relieve Stress and Anxiety, Deepak and Oprah provide meditations, activities, and tools to maintain an inner core of peace in even the most troubling circumstances.
We want to congratulate you on completing our first week together and to thank you for being a part of our global community.
Our centering thought for today is: I find a reason to hope in every situation.
