A Course in Weight Loss....

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Marianne Williamson writes so beautifully. Such soothing, poignant and profound words. I love spending time with her words. Her prayers are amazing. She writes that we build walls to protect ourselves and this leads to destructive activities. For me, it is food and lack of self care. Each brick on the wall has a word on it and she invites us to face the word and ask our Creator to assist us in tearing down the wall. It was a beautiful exercise. One that I shall surely repeat.

"Only the power of love can overcome the power of hate, and make no mistake about it;your unhealthy eating is an act of self hate. ".

Her prayer after addressing the wall...

Dear God,

Please remove the wall that I have built around me.
I have built it so strong,
Dear God,
That I cannot tear it down.
I surrender to You
Every thought of separation,
Every feeling of fear,
Every unforgiving thought.
Please, dear God,
Take this burden
From me forever.
Amen.
