Fighting Parkinson’s, and the quality of our lives

After I recovered from Parkinson’s, I was trying to explain my recovery to a person who did not have Parkinson’s and who knew very little about it. This was a difficult task because I felt he lacked the understanding of what it had been to live in a Parkinson’s body and think with a Parkinson’s mind and feel with a Parkinson’s soul. When I told him that I had come to the conclusion that nothing external to me, and nobody external to me, was going to heal me, and that I needed to heal myself from within, he smiled and said he knew exactly what I meant.

He then sent me this video:

Peace of mind is highly underrated. What we all would not give for peace of mind, the kind of peace of mind that soothes us and comforts us and tells us definitively, “Everything will be okay.” Actually, this type of peace of mind can be achieved if we listen to the wisdom of Sadhguru in the video.

Parkinson’s symptoms disrupt our peace of mind. They bring us pain and agony and misery and self-doubt and fear and fear and fear and fear! So, in the face of these symptoms, how do we achieve peace of mind and joy in life? We say, “Okay.”

This “Okay” says, “I accept that I have Parkinson’s symptoms, but I am not going to be a slave to them. I accept that they want me to have pain and agony and misery and self-doubt and fear, but I am not going to be a slave to them. No, I am not going to be a slave to my Parkinson’s symptoms. I am going to get on my path to recovery, and I am not going to let something external to the essence of my being control what is in my heart and in my soul. I am going to reach down deep and look inside myself and find peace and joy.”

“Okay.” So what are you waiting for. Watch the video and improve the quality of your life with peace and joy. Aren’t you worth it?

All my best,

    Thank you, Leo. You are very kind and you do have a peaceful soul and a big heart.
    With love and gratitude, Howard

    Leo’s translation:
    Hi all. Here to me it is late at night. Although I cannot sleep well, I think Howard is for us as a lifeboat, a doctor without silver [money] how do we reward? Let God do it physically. I am the same with all the symptoms but I have a peaceful soul, a joy that I felt for a long time, like I did not miss anything, everything is ok. You have this feeling? This is the result of stories on this blog. Healing comes from within. With love to all Leo

    va salut pe toti.Daca sunteti tristi eu vreau sa fiti veseli.Va povestesc ce am patit eu la medicul neurolog la Cluj in iarna trecuta.Am stat in sala de asteptare mai multe persoane ca sa intram la doctor ,era si un batranel incaltat cu niste cisme mari (pe jos era gresie)si la un moment dat incepe sa-i tremure picioarele si bocanea pe gresie cu cismele,m-am uitat la el si era disperat nu stia cum sa se opreasca,in momemtul acela cand il compatimeam ,a inceput si piciorele mele sa tremure tot asa,se uita lumea la noi cu mila atunci eu am izbucnit in ras si am zis ca dansam step si toti de acolo au ras,si batrinelul.Dupa cura de ras nu am mai tremurat nici doresc bine.Leo

    Here is Leo’s translation:

    I greet you all. If you’re sad, I want you to be happy. I will tell the doctor story that happened last winter at a Cluj neurologist. I sat in the waiting room where many people were waiting to see the doctor. There was an old man wearing some high boots (walking was wrong) and at some point begins to tremble with both feet on the tiles. I looked at him and was desperate not know how to stop from slipping, and in that moment of compassion, my legs started to tremble. I realized that the world looks at us with pity. So, instead, I laughed and said that he had a good dance step, and we all laughed, including the old man. After I am cured, I will not tremble anymore; just laugh. I wish you well. Leo

    Thank you, Leo. You make me laugh and you make me happy!
    Be well. Howard
