A wonderful way to live!
THE GENTLE ART OF BLESSING
On awakening, bless this day, for it is already full of unseen good which your blessings
will call forth; for to bless is to acknowledge the unlimited good that is embedded
in the very texture of the universe and awaiting each and all.
On passing people in the street, on the bus, in places of work and play, bless them.
The peace of your blessing will accompany them on their way and the aura of its
gentle fragrance will be a light to their path.
On meeting and talking to people, bless them in their health, their work, their
joy, their relationships to God, themselves, and others. Bless them in their abundance,
their finances … bless them in every conceivable way, for such blessings not only
sow seeds of healing but one day will spring forth as flowers of joy in the waste
places of your own life.
As you walk, bless the city in which you live, its government and teachers, its
nurses and street sweepers, its children and bankers and its priests.

a blessing: bless them totally, sincerely, joyfully, for such blessings are a shield
which protects them from the ignorance of their misdeed.and deflects the arrow that
To bless means to wish, unconditionally, total,
unrestricted good for others and events from the deepest wellspring in the innermost
chamber of your heart: it means to hallow, to hold in reverence, to
behold with utter awe that which is always a gift from the Creator.
