I have received a lot of feedback on my last post about losing our minds, and some of you have posted wonderful comments. This is a big topic, so I wanted to do a follow up to it. I remembered a post from last year and realized that the quality of our lives is vastly improved by our ability to lose our minds and feel joy in our hearts.
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. No, I am not going to be a slave to my Parkinson’s mind. 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, lose your mind, and open your heart to improve the quality of your life with peace and joy…and recovery.
Aren’t you worth it?
All my best,
