how do I get blessed?

The eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him

Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.  Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.  Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.  For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.  He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.  By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.  He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses.  Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.  For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.  The Lord bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.  The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.  Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.  The Lord looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.  From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.  He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.  There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.  An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.  Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.  Our soul waiteth for the Lord: he is our help and our shield.  For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.  Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.  
Psalm 33

want to be blessed?

Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 

Ephesians 6:2-3

When I was a kid my Dad used to say,"Don't listen to your parents, you might do something right!"

Everyone has a different experience with their parents. Some parents give a lot of advice, some give none. Some parents are successful by the world's standards, some have failed. Parents aren't perfect, but God says they all must be honored.

God doesn't ask us to believe everything our parents believe. He simply wants us to honor them. God chose our parents for us and put them in a position of authority over us for a time. Whether our parents were drug addicts or CEO's is not the point of this commandment. Parents deserve respect simply for being our parents. We were born because of them. If we do this simple thing, honor our parents, we will be blessed. It's a promise from God. Honoring to me means being thankful for them, trying to help them, forgiving them for any real or imagined offense and loving them as they are.

If they are far from us or have passed on we can still practice this commandment by aligning our thinking to match God's expectation of us.

It's a lifelong commandment and it's a commandment written for anyone on earth who was born.
