Are you frustrated being fat? Webster defines frustration as the feeling that accompanies an experience of being thwarted in attaining your goals. I have been consistently judged quite severely for being fat and for not losing weight throughout my life.
The fact that I had single-handedly raised two sons, kept them sheltered, fed, clothed and educated, bought and sold several houses and as many cars, educated myself, created and ran several businesses, authored a book, and maintained a social life counted for nothing in the face of my not having lost weight. Somehow, it’s like one aw shucks wipes out all the atta boys. Why is there such a stern judgment focused around obesity? And mind you: I am in perfect health despite it.
I believe this judgment against obesity was created around a lot of mistaken concepts. The media has for decades erringly touted the glory of emaciation. I’ve always asked my boy friends if they preferred bicycle frames or tuck-and-roll upholstery, and the tuck-and-roll always won the day. I am delighted that the modeling industry has now set a standard for BMI – body mass index. What a shame it is that they had to set that standard vs. us using our common sense! Women’s common sense has been decimated by unfavorable judgment against obesity and by the rampaging growth over the diet pill, health club, weight loss industry.
Our parents, our friends, our teachers, and our doctors have all bought into a substantial mistake that has been perpetuated for just centuries unaware, and their buy-in is a part of the stern judgment against obesity. I’ll bet you’re dying to know what that mistake is, aren’t you?
It is the reversal of the law of cause and effect.
And what does that mean? If I ask you “What is Cause?” would you be able to provide an answer that would satisfy you? I don’t think too many of us could answer it accurately. What if I asked you to “Define effect.”?” would you be able to provide an answer that would satisfy you? I don’t think so, so I’d like to lay out an explanation for you and see if you resonate with it as an accurate answer.
Cause causes things. What do you know of that causes things? Some of you might answer “God” but I’d like to ask you to extend your minds along a different tangent. Did you ever read the book “Illusions: the Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah” by Richard Bach? It’s a marvel. In the story, a character is asked to see if he can create something with his thinking. He thinks of a blue feather, and in no time at all, one appears in his experience.
Have you ever thought something and had it appear in your experience? I’ll bet you thought it was just a coincidence, didn’t you? Early on, I did too? It wasn’t. This was Cause at work fat decimator.
Cause is you, thinking. Effect is what you get as a result of your thinking. What does this mean related to the frustration of being fat? Oh, just everything, because if this is true, your fat has been caused by you thinking it into experience and can be disappeared by thinking something better in its place.
I don’t want to make this appear trivial or simplistic, because I understand this can be a life’s work. The truth of it is simple. The challenge is in learning how to use this truth to create the body you want and lose that sense of frustration as I am. Your frustration is actually holding the fat in place!
If you’ve tried dieting and you’re not losing weight, maybe another solution for the obesity would work better. Look for a mental method. I would encourage you to do some research on the topic and then study what you find. Simply beginning this search will lead you to the next steps. Type “mind is cause” or “cause is mind” into one of the internet search engines and follow what shows up. Consider taking philosophy courses at your local junior college. Search out this topic in old book stores – or new ones.
You deserve to have the frustration you currently feel that you link to the size of your body or being fat disappear into its native nothingness. I am well into the process of accomplishing this and I’m confident you can too.
