I have often wondered what was in that wine glass that made Seth look unconscious? Ah, well, it’s the holidays, and he is usually just playing with us. Just ask Jenn. She knows. Aren’t they a handsome couple?
In each post this month, I want to remind you that each post is one in a series about the key factors intrinsic to my being able to enjoy the holidays without kvetching about food or weight gain, and how I got to this place….finally! If you’ll notice, there’s a category called “Christmas” on the right where you can read them all. Enjoy!
My dream is that on New Year’s Eve, because you follow this blog and you tell your overweight friends to read it too, we’ll all be better prepared to move into 2010 with a basket full of right ideas to help us think differently about this overweight phantasmagoria.
Today, we’ll look at why you cannot change so-called physical things. I think the best way to explain this one is to put you in front of a mirror. You have just noticed that your hair is a mess! Do you reach out to the image in the mirror to make the changes, or do you work with the real thing, the hair on your head? Right, with the hair on your head! So, what’s the moral?
You are a Cause machine. You cause things by thinking about them. I know you’ve had the experience of thinking about something, having it show up, and thinking “What a coincidence!” Or maybe the experience has happened when you think about someone, and they call or email you? Either way: as a mental being, the subject of your thinking becomes objectified. The one thinking (that’d be you) has activated Cause with your thinking. Cause forms its thoughts using consciousness, the Primal Element, into the subject of its thinking. When the subject is completely thought through to a mental conviction, the thoughts objectify themselves as whatever, or whoever, you were thinking about.
The things you create are called effect. We have all been taught across the last few centuries that these effects are physical. Because of the way they were created (mentally) they cannot be physical. They can only be mental or spiritual. I consider those words synonyms. See Dec. 17th’s post.
So the things that you now think are physical (like your body) and you try to change (like through diet and exercise) can never retain those changes because the tools you are using are not mental, like the way you created your body in the first place, by thinking yourself fat. You’ve got to change your mind about your body. In that way, you are changing Cause…..and the effect will automatically change……and the change will be as permanent as the thoughts about it are permanent.
This is not a subject for sissies. It takes healthy, hard work to change your mind and keep it changed. And this is why surgieries are not successful permanently. You still have the Cause machine thinking fat, so it’s going to reproduce the fat unless you change it permanently. And for that, I say, to all a good night…and good luck.
Snowflakes on your noses,
