experiences within the human adventure matter more to our happiness
and well being than self-image. I know that it is possible for
people to develop a wonderful self-image no matter what shape or
size or type of body they have. Self-image has to do with our
understanding of the Self that we truly are, not some exterior idea
of what is “perfect” or “beautiful” or “attractive.”
the first step toward improving our self-image is to readjust the
shape of our inner ideas about true beauty and wonder and even about
divinity itself. You are divine, whatever shape you are in, whatever
the state of your being.
and shape change programs should therefore never be about
“improving.” It is impossible to improve on perfection—and you
are perfect in the eyes of God just the way you are. They should be
about changing your idea of perfection, even as you experience the
perfection of your present experience. They should be about
recreating yourself anew in the
grandest version of the greatest vision ever you held about Who
You Are. In other words, while you are fine and wonderful
the way you are, you may choose if you wish to move to the next
level in the demonstration of your personal magnificence by
redefining that in any way that you wish.
I like about the weight and shape change program offered in this
book is that new tools are added to your arsenal—tools having to
do with the human soul as well as the human mind and body. When we
bring the soul into our life process, whatever the issue, we
suddenly add a new and powerful dimension to the process
itself—one that can produce utterly amazing, if not to say
IS “miraculous”, and when we harness the power of God and place
it into our lives in any context, we make the impossible possible.
Spirituality is also fun. There is a certain joy mixed in with any
expression of divinity, and that joy translates into fun and humor
in the living of our day to day lives. The lighthearted approach to
weigh and shape change found in this book feels so good to my soul.
Life is in need of a little enlightenment, it seems to me. And by
enlightenment I mean the lightening up of our approach to the
challenges which face us.
is on our side. God is our best friend. When we realize this and use
that power and that force in the solution of whatever our problems
may be, everything changes. We no longer feel alone, we no longer
feel hopeless and helpless. Here is my favorite prayer. I love it.
you, God, for helping me to understand that this problem has already
been solved for me.
enjoy and embrace this spirit-centered approach to weight and shape
change if weight and shape change is what you desire. I am impressed
with what I see in this book. I love the nuance and the energy found
here. Lisa Bonnice is a natural “enlightener.” So have fun with
this book, and have fun as you approach what for so many other
people seems like an arduous and difficult task. Let Lisa help you
make it look easy.
