SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS

SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS  HIGH LEVELS OF WEIGHT LOSS

To adapt to this uncertain food environment, our ancient ancestors and all other animals developed a highly motivating and rewarding relationship with food. The oldest parts of our brain motivate us to hunt for that food, which we now have a 100% chance of getting — and we don’t have to exert much effort at all to get it.

SPIRITUAL WEIGHT LOSS

More than 2 in 3 adults are considered to be overweight or have obesity in the United States. In other words, being overweight or obese is the new normal for Americans. Each one of these people carries an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal disorders (e.g., arthritis and low back pain), cancer, type 2 diabetes, and depression. 

Keto is one of the most effective ways to lose weight rapidly and keep the fat off for good. The keto diet is a low carb and high fat diet that is similar to the Atkins diet – except there are no complicated phases to work through, making it a little easier to follow, especially for diet beginners.

The plan is said to cause fast weight loss while allowing dieters to remain satisfied, thanks to the large amount of fat included.

STAGES OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH 2

There are three different stages of spiritual growth.

In each of these stages, you grows a little.

  1. When you begin, you are trying to overcome sin and you go through purification. You try to take the sin out of your life. You will then move on to a stage where sin is put out of your life.
  2. To enter this stage, the dark night of senses will usually occur. When Jesus was taken away from the apostles, they went through their dark night experience.
  3. Finally, you have a sense of conscience and the Holy Spirit operates in you more. You will evolve into a loving union with God. Having perfect joy is the farthest that we can go in this world. Not many people make it this far.


SUFFERING JOY

Long-suffering is synonymous to patient and enduring.  We must be long-suffering when we see the weaknesses of our brothers and sisters in the faith.

It will be the patience and long suffering of the Holy Spirit that will be the only thing that will give you the ability to last the entire length of a storm cloud or trial. You must learn to ride and flow with the patience of the Holy Spirit in your daily life and walk with the Lord – and you will then be able to enter into a much more restful and peaceful state within your mind and emotions.

A spirit-filled person has joy on his heart. Joy and pleasure are two different things. Continue reading STAGES OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH 2

WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2

IN SEARCH OF SPIRITUALITY

We are in this world but not of this world since every day Christians say: “Our Father who art in heaven…

Spirituality mean

Even when we worship different gods, attend different schools, have different skin colors, we’re all supposed to share spirituality.

But you have a compute and Wikipedia: “Spirituality can refer to an ultimate or immaterial reality; an inner path enabling a person to discover the essence of their being; or the ‘deepest values and meanings by which people live.’”

Yes, that’s Wikipedia! It continues on to say, “Spirituality is often experienced as a source of inspiration or orientation in life. It can encompass belief in immaterial realities or experiences of the immanent or transcendent nature of the world.”

Hmm! That’s extremely broad. Maybe you should read a book on the subject.

Princeton religion scholar Leigh Schmidt wrote one called Restless Souls that charts the development of American spirituality. Rather than the “New Age” phenomenon it is sometimes misinterpreted as, spirituality is an egalitarian, pluralistic realm of experience and thought has  a unique and sometimes intellectually advanced role in American history. So, basically, Schmidt can’t (or won’t) really define spirituality, either.

We instinctively know that it’s mixed up in religion, but it’s definitely distinct from institutional religion. Can someone be religious without being spiritual? It’s completely plausible.

On the other side of the coin, you hear “I don’t go to church, but I’m very spiritual.” You may get called spiritual once in a while without understanding what it means. People can use spirituality as a buffer. Relying on ambiguity can be risky. Continue reading WHAT DOES SPIRITUALITY MEAN? 2
