John Morton has a profound ability to see the blessings in all people and things. When giving presentations and seminars, John usually includes a new blessing for that situation and all involved. Each blessing concludes with Baruch Bashan (pronounced bay-roosh bay-shan). It is a statement that means “the blessings already are” – that blessings are present, and all we have to do is to partake of them, enjoy them, and appreciate them. That is what a genuine relationship with God and Spirit is really all about: The blessings of God are present and available.
Both of John’s books, The Blessings Already Are and You Are the Blessings: Meditations and Reflections on Life, God and Us are filled with John’s original blessings.
The blessing is that you are always learning what is important for your growth and fulfillment. That is an eternal blessing by God for you and everyone. Any situation that teaches you what is important and what is not important is a blessing.

A Blessing of Upliftment
Dear God, beloved friend to us all, we ask for your blessing, that we are open to receive and we are open to give.
And we take a moment to let go of our own concerns, that we may find what your concerns are for the highest good.
So we ask that we are lifted, as needed, to see the good in all things and all people. We extend this into whatever has happened. We ask to be fully present here in this place, that we can be glad for whatever is our lot, for all the circumstances in our life.
We may consider situations about our health, our living conditions, the bills we pay, those people in our life we are close to, and especially those who bring us our lessons and anywhere we find misunderstanding, confusion, or hurt.
We open ourselves up now to be ministered unto by the Holy Spirit through the consciousness of the Christ, the one you have anointed to touch to us all, to be an example.
We ask to be an example, that we can demonstrate the ability that is your gift and your blessing, to go forward into this world knowing all is a gift. And when we do not understand, we ask that we are comforted, that we know you enfold us, you embrace us, you walk with us all along the way.
We may need to be shown again and again how to let go, to give up those things that attach us or bind us. Bring in the resonation of the spirit of freedom.
We ask that we can laugh more, smile more, enjoy life more to the fullest extent that can be bestowed, and that we have the wit to live in this way.
Right now, if you can show each one of us what we can do personally to shift ourselves, to make ourselves more available to your purpose, to your will being done, we ask that this be done.
And if a consciousness can be brought forward in whatever way will serve to assist, to hold with us, to remind us of what we are to do in each and every situation, we give thanks for this blessing.
