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.

"From this space of peace, we experience ourselves as pure love— love that transcends limiting imperfect thoughts, fills empty spaces, and kneads the hard places into softness."
Wherever we are at this moment, the fascinating and beautiful Universal spirit of God connects us heart-to-heart in prayer. Focusing on disconcerting external, appearances may bring up in us varying degrees of fear within us. So, for this brief moment in time, we train our attention inward to the center of Truth, where all overwhelm is quelled and doubts become quiet. Peace awaits our arrival at the center of our being, gently encompassing us in its margin-less breadth and circumference. From this space of peace, we experience ourselves as pure love— love that transcends limiting imperfect thoughts, fills empty spaces, and kneads the hard places into softness. From this space of peace, the decisions and choices we make, in astutely fulfilling our leadership responsibilities, parallel whatever is most conducive to meeting the needs of Unity’s diverse community of leaders and iteration of ministries. We release attachment to a specific outcome and trust in Divine guidance and Divine order to align us with whatever is necessary to fulfill our holy assignment, and with what is in keeping with the highest and best for all. In deep gratitude, and with energized faith, we release these words into the atmosphere and expectantly witness their swift and complete manifestation. And so it is. Amen.
