The traditional idea of a blessing is that a God outside of us bestows a blessing on us and that we’re blessed because we’re “good”. Could the idea of a blessing go beyond the thought that it is something we receive? If we believe that God is all there is, then God is in the midst of situations we don’t like, such as when someone treats us poorly. Our work is to lift ourselves up when someone treats us bad. Instead of reacting in anger we can turn it around and bless that person. We can look around and see if there is someone in our life we’re at odds with and hold that person in a state of blessing. When we do that we give them a Divine gift and the Divine is flowing through us. (12/11/2016)
