Let God Shape You

Question: Do you have any words of wisdom that may help in weight loss?

Answer: Work at developing your love for God. Why does that have anything to do with losing weight? Because when you get past the immature place where you think worship is looking at something on a wall, thinking about something outside of yourself, and then doing exactly the opposite when you leave your place of worship — when you understand that worship is an interior, moment-to-moment relationship, and that it can become deeper and deeper, more alive, more joyful, more forthright, more safety-giving, and more strengthening — then you want more quiet, more love, more unity, more peace. You become devoted to whatever it takes to make your body, mind, and heart more receptive to the spirit that you love. At that point you don’t want to sit with a body that’s uncomfortable to you — not because the body is uncomfortable, or because you think about yourself as having an unpleasant body, but because the body itself is interfering with your ability to deepen your relationship with the Divine. Then you stop eating foods that upset you, because you don’t want that. And when you go to bed at night, you don’t want a disturbed sleep because the Work, your spiritual life, goes forward. At a certain point in your spiritual work, you never leave school. You get natural rests, but you don’t leave school. So your love of God allows the God who has awakened this in you to begin to shape you according to His need to reveal Himself to you.

    Before I pray, I ask God to direct my attention, prayer, thoughts. Likewise, in eating, focus on God’s will before eating. Spending more time on prayer than on eating, might be of help (on occasion). Your asking for help (as with Guy) helps “attune” you to a healthier diet. The diet of the mind and heart helps determine the food we eat. Keep planting seeds for your happier appetite. Be kind to yourself. You are loved.
