Blessing and joy

The following quotation is really describing the act of blessing as a meditative support. We are being encouraged here to bless as a remedy for distractions. Very interesting indeed:

As our awareness of blessing grows, so does our joy. When we bless something, we center our attention on a very holy moment, for the power of blessing will tend to focus our mind, regardless of where it may have been wandering. We are brought to joy.

-- Avram Davis in The Way of Flame

  2. It always surprises me that nearly all (all that I am familiar with) religious traditions have some form of meditative tradition. Such a fascinating common denominator.
