For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or
merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling
occurs when you realise that your problem is bigger than you are. The
terror of realising, even dimly, that you have no control over a
self-destructive pattern of behaviour–that as much as you would want
to, you simply cannot stop – can mark a crucial turning point in your
life. At that point, you go in one of two directions: either way, way
down, or way, way up. . . .
This book is for you if you know in your heart that you are an
addict, and that you are powerless before your addictive behaviour. As
the title promises, Marianne Williamson looks at weight loss
from a spiritual perspective, bringing you 21 lessons that can be done
separately or in conjunction with any other serious spiritual path.
These 21 lessons are completely separate from anything related to diet
or exercise – they will retrain your consciousness in the area
of weight in order to break the cycle of overeating, dieting and shame
that rules so many lives. Finally, Marianne has brought you what you've
been waiting for: help to heal your addiction once and for all!
