The meaning of God Bless you...
So, what is someone really saying when they say, "God Bless you to me?" What does it mean? Why do people say it?
I have my own person thoughts on what it means but, I thought I'd ask people here to fill me in. I take it that when people say it, they mean that may all that is good, love, god, to dwell in my mind and in my heart. May that I stay connected with that which is holy.
As a Buddhist, it is said that Buddha nature is a very much a part of our being. That, we just have to realize what we have always had. That pure mind. That Buddha consciousness. That Buddha Heart. That Buddha nature.
I have heard that Christians explain that they have touched upon the holy spirit. As a Buddhist, I recognize that as Buddha nature. That divine consciousness.
So, if someone says, "God Bless you." Are they saying, "May that I stay connected to the holy spirit?"
Are they wishing me well? Like, may you happiness continue, may happiness increase, may your happiness never end.
