I have another friend who is also working on losing weight. This one found a program that was really going well for her. She was jazzed to be on it, and it was working. Then suddenly one day she sent a chat message to the effect of… she had been too into the weight loss and had taken her eyes off God and so she was not going to the meeting… blah, blah, blah.
To which I said, “Wait. Wait. Wait. Hold up a second. You’re wanting to stop all of it, something that’s working, because you’ve seen issues with what you’ve been doing?”
Let me explain this thinking this way…
You are the pilot on a flight from the mainland to Hawaii. You take off and you are flying. Suddenly you realize that you are off course! In the direction you are flying, you will MISS Hawaii and instead be in Japan!
What to do? What to do?
Well, of course, you turn back around and go back where you started, right?
You don’t turn around and go back?
You can make an adjustment?
Why, I believe you are right! You can, in fact, make an adjustment and get back on course!
So if you’re doing your experiments and you realize you’ve gotten off course, make an adjustment! If you are balancing your checkbook and miss a month, make the adjustment–do that month–and go on with life. Don’t say, “Oh, forget it! I can’t do this anyway! I give up!” Make an adjustment.
The good news is my friend did make an adjustment, put the program back in perspective and kept going. The even better news is Hawaii (where she really wanted to be) is now on her radar screen! Woohoo!

She got so exasperated that one day she said, “I thought we just lived. I didn’t know there were lessons!” I still tease her about that. One of the things I have learned about…
by: Staci Stallings I’ve been reading a fascinating book called Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat. In this book, the author Gregory Kuhn discusses how in regular physics we believe what we see, but in quantum physics we see what we believe. That is fascinating to me. Last time I talked about my…
by: Staci Stallings Last week we talked about one friend who has been dieting and how her attempts at losing weight was like Thomas Edison experimenting with the light bulb. He had lots of failures that all eventually led to the success he’s known for. In the same way we are all “experimenting”…
by: Staci Stallings Now I don’t know why this happens, but I want you to be prepared for it because when it happens, it can be downright dis-spiriting. It goes like this: You’ve been sowing God Seeds and things have been going very well. One person that you’ve put God time and effort…
