I forgot how nice it feels to be blessed. No one's given me one verbally in so long! It wasn't a laying down of hands or anything, but it was still a very moving experience. I felt so full and overjoyed. Maybe I need to ask that this be done more often. The world is so full of curses - some intentional and some not. Just like Genji's wife Aoi found... And everyday I feel it too - weighed down by people's complaints, sarcasm. It isn't very significant, but it builds up until you forget how it feels to be freed! Ahh so refreshed!
