The leap of faith

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Right now I'm spending a lot of time reading the Power of Now by Eckart Tolle. He has been very inspirational to me for years. Believe it or not I find help dealing with my emotional eating by reading his works. He talks a lot about creating pain for yourself by doing things that don't honor you or the moment. He talks about taking a leap of faith and trying out a different state of being and letting go of the old self that is trapped in the past and the future and not the Now.
I notice that when I overeat its often because I'm upset about the past (even just 12 hours earlier!) or I'm fretting about the future. If I can catch this and just focus on the exact moment I find that I am taking a leap of faith by not creating pain by worrying or feeling sad, ashamed, guilty ect. AND eating. Its tough but I do feel it helps. When the urge to eat overcomes me I feel lost in the past or worrying about the future or just reacting negatively to the world at that moment. Will keep going and writing here.
