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.
― Dalai Lama XIV
Day 4 – Releasing Fear and Anxiety with Hopefulness
In today’s meditation, we see that our hope is undermined by fear and anxiety. Past disappointments lead us to anticipate present and future disappointments. We learn that if we awaken to the presence of awareness, then our past will no longer be our present reality. When we recognize that our worry and doubt is based on an illusion, we become free, hopeful, and fearless.
Our centering thought for today is: In hope, I am fearless.
“Never lose hope, my dear heart, miracles dwell in the invisible.” –
