The Gentle Art of Blessing
Pierre Pradervand
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, its priests and prostitutes. The minute anyone expresses the least aggression or unkindness to you, respond with 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 was aimed at you.
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. He who is hallowed by your blessing is set aside, consecrated, holy, whole. To bless is to invoke divine care upon, to think or speak gratefully for, to confer happiness upon – although we ourselves are never the bestower, but simply the joyful witnesses of Life’s abundance.
To bless all without discrimination of any sort is the ultimate form of giving, because those you bless will never know from whence came the sudden ray of sun that burst through the clouds of their skies, and you will rarely be a witness to the sunlight in their lives.
When something goes completely askew in your day, some unexpected event knocks down your plans and you too also, burst into blessing: for life is teaching you a lesson, and the very event you believe to be unwanted, you yourself called forth, so as to learn the lesson you might balk against were you not to bless it. Trials are blessings in disguise, and hosts of angels follow in their path.
To bless is to acknowledge the omnipresent, universal beauty hidden to material eyes; it is to activate that law of attraction which, from the furthest reaches of the universe, will bring into your life exactly what you need to experience and enjoy.
When you pass a prison, mentally bless its inmates in their innocence and freedom, their gentleness, pure essence and unconditional forgiveness; for one can only be prisoner of one’s self-image, and a free man can walk unshackled in the courtyard of a jail, just as citizens of countries where freedom reigns can be prisoners when fear lurks in their thoughts.
When you pass a hospital, bless its patients in their present wholeness, for even in their suffering, this wholeness awaits in them to be discovered. When your eyes behold a man in tears, or seemingly broken by life, bless him in his vitality and joy: for the material senses present but the inverted image of the ultimate splendor and perfection which only the inner eye beholds.
It is impossible to bless and to judge at the same time. So hold constantly as a deep, hallowed, intoned thought that desire to bless, for truly then shall you become a peacemaker, and one day you shall, everywhere, behold the very face of God.
And, of course, please remember to bless the utterly beautiful person you are!

  1. I too remember when you first offered this to us in class. This has made me so much more tolerant of people. Then on the other hand I am observant and witness it in others too giving me a reminder to not let ugliness, blame and complaining be regular occurrence on my part. I now find I have to shield myself when others do it and this is a good opportunity to plant those blessings. Thank you Sunny for making this stick in my life.

  2. Hi Sunny, I bless you and the whole world with my thoughts, with my words and with my actions. God bless you all!!! Indeed!!!

  3. I have always loves this! Many years go I remember reading something similar to this of your website which started me doing this all the time while I drive, shop, when I am at sporting events and all kids of things. This just reminded me to do it more often!

  4. Thank you Sunny, I love the blessing and needed it 🙂 Also, I great reminder to bless everyone I encounter today. Some days I remember but not so much lately.
    Blessings to you Sunny and your family. Love You

  5. Blessings to you, too, Sunny! I have been doing this for several years, a silent blessing, which is something I learned as a child. Amazing results often occur when doing it. I then begin to smile, I feel peace entering my heart, and if done for a person, then I silently request that the person who received the blessing then understands the meaning of their life. Every day truly is a blessing when waking up to see the sky ablaze with sunlight, gently dusted with clouds, and some days even a sprinkling of rain to cleanse and clear all that needs cleaning and clearing.
