The most important thing to remember during times of great change is to fix our eyes anew on the things that don't change.
Eternal things become our compass during times of rapid transition, binding us emotionally to a steady and firm course. They remind us that we, as children of God, are still at the center of divine purpose in the world. They give us the strength to make positive changes, wisdom to endure negative changes, and the capacity to become people in whose presence the world moves toward healing.
The Gift of Change
" Just as the pure crystal takes color from the object which is nearest to it, so the mind, when it is cleared of thought-waves, achieves sameness or identity with the object of its concentration."
"Your life is something opaque, not transparent, as long as you look at it in an ordinary human way. But if you hold it up against the light of God's goodness, it shines and turns transparent, radiant and bright. And then you ask yourself in amazement: Is this really my own life I see before me?"
- Albert Schweitzer
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us" We ask ourselves, Who am I to be briliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn`t serve the world. There`s nothing enlighted about shrinking so that other people won`t feel insecure around you. We are all ment to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It`s not just in some of us; it`s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we`re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

One day the sun admitted
I am just a shadow
I wish I could show you
The infinite incandescence
That has cast my brilliant image
I wish I could show you
When you are lonely or in darkness
The astonishing light
Of your own being

As a child and young adult I was always very active. For ten years I was a personnal trainer and taught Aerobics and Spinning.
I had never counted a calorie or watched what I ate. Until about 5 years ago. I started gaining a little here and a little there. Until I had went over 200 pounds.
Now at 196 pounds, I am committed to losing the weight and expanding who I am in other ways.
I enjoy reading spiritual and motivational books. Most resently read Eckhart Tolle- The Power of Now. I also enjoy Marianne Williamson she goes through the workbook for A Course in Miracles and Wayne Dyer. I just bought a Food Juicer and am learning the joy of Juicing
