I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this site (www.gentleartofblessing.org) that you have made available. I am Cameroonian and always looking for personal and spiritual development sources. Of all the sites I have found, yours is the most helpful. I tried several methods of prayer but didn’t really find the right one.
Since following your advice regarding blessing, gratitude, love (specially the fact that blessing has to be something one really feels and that it has to come from the heart, not the head) I can already notice a great deal of change both around me and within me – though I am yet a beginner
I wanted to thank you for helping us find happiness through the means already in our possession, i.e. our hearts, feelings, thoughts) instead of looking for them elsewhere (marabouts, witch doctors).
I find myself minimizing situations which seem scandalous to others. I am in an administration where people no longer differentiate between good and evil. I live in a society where returning blow for blow is the rule and where witchcraft is part of our customs. And here I find myself different from the others through the practice of blessing. I never knew the meaning of this word until I discovered your site.
Thank you again.
