My spiritual shape-up

IT SEEMS WE LIVE in a world of "thin," or "want to be thin." Of "in shape," or "trying to get (or stay) in shape."

Interestingly enough, when I looked up the word shape in the dictionary, there were two very different meanings. The first was "an assumed appearance." When we look in the "mirror, mirror on the wall," another way of expressing this first definition is really "mortal/material image." The second definition (the one I like) is "proper form; orderly arrangement." Or as I like to put it, "immortal image." The reflection of God. If I go by this spiritual model as my barometer of whether I'm fit or not, I'm really in good shape.
