How can a blessing change the world? Making the conscious choice to bless every person or being in our lives, rather than lashing out or feeling self-pity, can make a world of difference. Blessing not only offers a renewed perspective, but also has the power to generate tangible benefits throughout your life. In Pierre Pradevand's The Gentle Art of Blessing, readers develop a down-to-earth approach to applied spirituality, a deep and lasting calm, tools to ground their spiritual practice in everyday life, and methods to explore the power of positive expectations and unconditional love.
How can a blessing change the world? According to Pierre Pradervand
, making the conscious choice to bless every person or being around you can truly make a world of difference in yourself and in others around you. In “The Gentle Art of Blessing,” Pradervand shows that the practice of blessing has the power to create more than just a renewed perspective. It unleashes tangible benefits throughout your entire life — through your daily interactions, your life-long relationships, and in the way your approach your place in the world.
Pradervand describes blessing as genuinely wishing the best for another person through seeing their individual worth and honoring them for it. By looking at several different perspectives — providing spiritual inspiration from Hinduism, Taoism, the Koran, the Bible, and other important spiritual sources — “The Gentle Art of Blessing” explores the potential in shifting one's attitude from confrontation and negativity to acceptance and enthusiasm. A powerfully simple way of perceiving and shaping our surroundings, blessings can reflect the unconditional love and acceptance that is necessary for world — and inner — peace.
