Bless and be blessed

One of your greatest sources of pleasure and inner peace is the ability you have to bless others.

This short message is a new adventure for many of us because it is an investigation into the why some things happen in our lives. We are spiritual beings and the spiritual aspect of our makeup is not really emphasized in our western culture.

The American Indian’s culture was one where the spiritual aspect was a concept that began when the children were small because they were told of the power of the Great Spirit.

The framers of our constitution were well aware of this power because in the opening of our constitution we are told that we are endowed with the ability to search for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

There is no doubt in my mind that this concept is one of the main contributors to the greatness of the United States of America.

We can and should develop blessing in our lives and include it in our pursuit of happiness.

The dictionary is a tool we can use to help mold our thinking. If we learn to refer back to the dictionary to add the extra measure of wholeness and polish and refinement of our understanding of words we can derive more power in our ability to be able to explain and encourage our conversation with those we want to inspire.

The definition of bless is an example. The power of the word bless is best when we use it as a verb.

Bless: blessed or blest or blessing

  • To consecrate by religious rite; make or pronounce holy
  • To request of God to bestow divine favor on
  • To bestow good of any kind upon a nation blessed with peace
  • To extol as holy or to glorify
  • To protect or guard from evil
  • Ecclesial, to make the sign of the cross over or signify holy
  • Divinely or supremely favored

The great leaders are those individuals who have a vocabulary of powerful words and they have learned to choose the powerful words to insert into their conversation. Their knowledge of the correct word to use at the proper time and place makes for a powerful spoken or written sentence.

Now this is the very interesting aspect of the reason for this page we are reading at this moment.

You can have the power to bless. All you have to do is to recognize it is an integral part of your being. You actually can bless another person and can call down a blessing.

You can have awesome power if you will simply learn how and when to use it.

This is a simple explanation and I include it to make it so simple and automatic that you can use it comfortably and easily in the form of a wish for the other person. I don’t know the author. I have heard is an Irish blessing but it is very powerful. You should begin to use it on your family and loved ones.

The amazing aspect of blessing is that it does two things; it transfers power from one to another. But the very fact that you did bless brings spirit power back to you, the person doing the blessing.

Here is the simple way to give a blessing.

  • I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
  • I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
  • I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting.
  • I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
  • I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
  • I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
  • I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.
