Pronounce a Silent Blessing

 Ever since I was introduced to The Gentle Art of Blessing, by Pierre Pradervand, it's become a daily practice, admittedly at first intellectually, but soon with sincerity. It brightens my day and I am sure impacts those whom  I bless as we are all one. Imagine the impact on the climate of our current political  campaign in  the US if we were to bless our candidates in their divine nature (love, kindness,compassion, honesty, humble desire to serve, etc)....Tall order but well worth the commitment!
Here is the link to the basic text by Mr. Pradervand

This reminds me of the Truth that we are all born with the Light of Love within us, that spark of the divine, and that though it may be so deeply hidden within us as to be completely unnoticeable from the outside, we can still remember to believe this about everyone and pronouncing a blessing is a way of igniting that flame within someone once again. 
I was once walking in darkness too and someone must have been blessing me a lot!
Seeing the Light in everyone today and blessing it.
