“You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings.”
– Elizabeth Gilbert
Prayer is about connection to the larger whole. Blessings are not static. Neither prayer nor blessings will allow you to run away from your problems. Rather we use prayers to connect to others and the world. We use blessings as the receiving of the prayer, aid and intention. The two work together and it is an interactive process.
A person can also work at creating their own blessings to power them through a challenge.
Yet: blessings will achieve nothing if you don’t work with the gift to manifest your goal.
