What's Weighing You Down?

Excess weight is the only compulsion a person wears for all to see. You can walk through a crowd and pass people who are obsessed with alcohol, drugs, gambling, shopping, working or playing, and never know upon first glance that they are carrying hidden addictions too.

Overeating is the only behavior that people can see upon first glance in the eventual form of weight gain. This is the only fixation where the person not only struggles inside, but wears and bears the burden outside. Yet, if we could see within their souls, we would see the emotional weights they also carry. 

Over-indulgence causes problems in other areas of life too, and therefore keeps people from living life to their fullest potential. In all of these cases the cure is the Word. Jesus said, “If you continue in my Word…Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth will make you free.”  Free from whatever has its hooks in you and is limiting your life every day (John 8:31-36).

What we gaze upon, we graze upon.

Just seeing this salad makes me want to have one! The same is true when I see junk food.                                                                                                                               What we gaze upon, we usually graze upon. We often look longingly at the things that lead to our downfall. To remedy this, find a positive diversion when tempted to eat inferior food. The distraction will help you resist temptation. Read more thoughts like these on food and eating in I'm Hungry! I'm Bored!

The majority of people's problems are caused by 
the fact that they are disconnected with the rest of creation. 
C.S. Lewis          
When thoughts and feelings are expressed during deep levels of communication, true intimacy is established and attachments are formed that are virtually unbreakable. Today, we see more and more people interacting electronically rather than enjoying face-to-face or side-by-side conversations. As a result, rather than feeling more connected, people often feel more disconnected than ever.

Talk to Me! Listen To Me! is as a tool to help turn things around. Although this book is a short read, it will take days, to weeks, to possibly months to implement, since the latter questions take time to emerge, develop, and unfold. The more thought-provoking questions may also run into chats that last for hours, either because of the time it takes to reveal the answer, or because the answer may lead to even more questions and deeper discussions.

The questions can be chosen cafeteria style from the light and fun, to the more weighty and serious.  They can be used during one-on-one situations or in groups such as classroom settings, college dorms, orientations, sorority and fraternity interviews, and even in corporate team-building meetings.

They may also be used as a quiz type game, or as an icebreaker at parties, or as a “get to know you” handbook while dating or making new friends. All 150 questions can be worked through over time with a companion, a relative, or a spouse to deepen existing relationships. A couple may also choose a few of the more provocative questions to answer while on a weekend retreat.

“Communication to a relationship is like oxygen to life. Without it, it dies,” Unknown
