8/17 Your Home: Your Body and Total Wholeness

February 21, 2014
guidelines

So far in our blog on Total Wholeness, we have discussed the main 7 members that form your personality.  We have been concentrating on ‘The Body’ in the part of our blog.  We have defined the body as ‘The physical outer shell that houses our spirit and our being.  However, because our modern worldview has been influenced by Greek philosophy and Greek thinking, we have tended to minimize the importance of the body.

The Bible gives the body more significance than we are ordinarily taught in the modern western culture. It is to be viewed with dignity and not just a necessary addition to the spirit. Hebrew thinking perceives the body as an outward expression or physical extension of the spirit or ‘inner man’ .

8/16 Facing the Battle of the Bludge for Total Wholeness

February 15, 2014

Recently, I had a very interesting discussion about dieting with a friend of mine.  Of course, this is always a popular subject with those who have fought ‘the battle of the bludge’.  In fact, doing a browser search I found the following info on the Dieting Industry:

                                  The Dieting Industry

• 95% of diets fail and most will regain their lost weight in 1-5 years

Source: Statistics on Weight Discrimination: A Waste of Talent, The Council on Size and Weight Discrimination,  Retrieved July 18, 2011, from http://www.cswd.org/index.html

• 75% of American women surveyed endorse unhealthy thoughts, feelings or behaviours related to food or their bodies.
