Appreciation and Blessing

Appreciation and blessing are one and the same.  We may sometimes say, “Let’s bless the food now,” or “Bless you,” or “May this house be blessed.”

Actually we have no power to make anything more Holy than it already is.  Everything is already completely blessed, and all the prayers in the world could not make it more blessed.   We certainly could not imbue a loaf of bread or a person with more God than already lives within them.
What we can do, however is to see, or appreciate the God-infused blessedness in the person or object  guaranteed by the Light that lights the world.
