Hello, my name is Daniel Lee Austhof, and I AM The Blessed One!
This may seem like a brazen claim to make, but I will shout it from the rooftops because I don't think that it's the truth- I KNOW it is!! In my book, "The Blessed One", I point out that each and every human is greatly Blessed- to the extent of our perception. When I focus on the flashes of brilliance in my own life and focus on the joy, the love, the breath that I have been given..... if I focus on my Blessings in life, I have come to find infinitely more! I guess it's true: "Seek and you shall find." There is a verse in the Holy Bible that tells the best way that I know to keep my focus on the positive and seeing the Blessings in our lives: Philippians 4:8- "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." And there seems to be an inherent law of the universe that is often referred to as "The Law of Attraction". As Jay Z once said, "Game knows game". Put another way "like knows like". Consider human relationship tendencies: isn't it strange how the rich marry rich, attractive marry attractive, and the negative marry the negative? And then to top that off many of these couples produce similar offspring. Does it NEED to work that way? Is it possible to improve upon our current statuses? As humans we seem to defer to a realm that best mirrors our own Attitudes and Auras. Perhaps our own reactions to events in life directly contribute to the proceeding events and cause runs of either "good or bad luck". At least for me, the most successful people I know are always optimistic and don't let their emotions get the better of themselves. Unfortunately, I am, by nature, an emotional person and I try every day to keep a positive, optimistic perspective on life, without any wild highs or lows. And I believe that the best way to do this is to think in a manner focusing on "whatever is good, whatever is pure......"etc.
*(.......work in progress. to be continued soon. God Bless!)
So this is the message that I intend to share- that, inherently, each of us IS, HAS BEEN, and ALWAYS WILL BE The Blessed One!
The theme of "The Blessed One", and perhaps the purpose of my entire life, is to redirect the Perception of the World onto what we DO have rather than the scarcity. And most importantly to consider the source of these Blessings- our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! With this website, my writing, and the actions of my life, I hope to encourage each and every soul to Perceive Goodness and Prosperity and proceed to live the Life of THE BLESSED ONE!!!.
