This is a picture of my son’s girlfriend, Amy, at her shower. Their baby is due tomorrow. We’ve all been waiting, watching, hoping and praying. It’s a difficult thing, waiting. But nature has to complete it’s processing 100% before that baby will move into the being-born position and we just have to be patient.
It’s the same with any work you undertake. I’m thinking of weight loss specifically. The process has to be 100% completed and this takes a lot of patience and even more perseverance. I’m happy for my -32 pounds. After that 5 week plateau last month, I am grateful for the smallest step forward.
I went to dinner with a friend last evening and she is unconvinced that my losing weight is due to mental means alone. Well, if it wasn’t, why was it that when my mental work got so scrambled and inconsistent, did I plateau out? Why didn’t the food choices I had been making carry the day? Because it’s my mental work that is doing the job! I am absolutely convinced about that and I see it so clearly that I can never deviate from my path now, because it is the Truth.
I’d love to teach you how to do that. We didn’t have the class last night. It got re-scheduled for next Monday, April 13th at 6 pm PST. If you want to find Your Power Inside, you can sign up for the April 6th class on my website, but know I’ll teach it on April 13th.
I want to leave you with a powerful thought today. I found this quotation hanging as a sampler on the wall at Mimi’s Restaurant in Torrance, CA:
Keep thy tongue from evil.
Refuse to do a mean act, be it ever so small.
If we would do good, we must be good.
You can do more good by being good than in any other way.
Never excuse a wrong action by saying someone else does the same thing.
