Fighting Parkinson’s, and our viewpoint of reality

Reality. You have Parkinson’s. Reality. If you have Parkinson’s, you have symptoms. What you decide to do about your Parkinson’s and your symptoms is a choice, and your choice is grounded in your viewpoint of reality.

Reality. You have Parkinson’s, a diagnosis based upon you having a certain set of symptoms. That is what is real.

Whether you feel you have the ability to cure yourself, whether you feel that a change in symptoms means you are getting better or getting worse, whether you feel filled with hope and faith or filled with fear and despair…all of these feelings are dependent upon your viewpoint of reality.

A cow is in the pasture and two men are sitting on the fence, one man from the US and the other man from India. The man from the US is looking at the cow thinking about a steak dinner, and the man from India is looking at the cow thinking about being in the presence of a sacred being. Reality: One cow in the pasture, two men sitting on the fence. Everything else is the viewpoint of reality.

Let’s take this a step further.

A cow is in the pasture and two men are sitting on the fence. The men are identical twins born to a woman in the UK who put them up for adoption. One man was adopted by a family from the US and the other man was adopted by a family from India. The man adopted by a family from the US is looking at the cow thinking about a steak dinner, and the man adopted by a family from India is looking at the cow thinking about being in the presence of a sacred being. Reality: One cow in the pasture, two men sitting on the fence. Everything else is the viewpoint of reality.

What is your viewpoint of reality?

Are you choosing to view your Parkinson’s and your symptoms with the Western Medicine gloom and doom prognosis of you progressively degenerating for the rest of your life with no treatment that can slow or halt the disease and treatments that can only mask your symptoms for a window of time?

OR

Are you choosing to view your Parkinson’s and your symptoms with the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® hope and faith prognosis that a life out of balance can be physically, mentally, and spiritually brought back into balance and cured from Parkinson’s?

Reality. You have Parkinson’s, a diagnosis based upon you having a certain set of symptoms. That is what is real.

What is your viewpoint? You see, your present moment viewpoint helps determine your future reality, one future moment at a time.

If your viewpoint is the Western Medicine viewpoint that you have no chance of being cured, then that becomes your reality. That is what they tell you. They tell you that although they can provide treatments for symptom relief, what they do not have is a disease modifying treatment, that is, something that actually can slow or halt the disease.

If your viewpoint is the Recipe viewpoint, then you have the opportunity of being cured. With the Recipe viewpoint and you taking action in furtherance of your recovery by doing the soul, mind, and body parts of the Recipe, you can cure yourself from Parkinson’s. That becomes your reality.

As you can see, your present moment viewpoint of reality sets in motion the action or inaction that changes your future. When you are doing the Recipe, filled with faith, hope, love, gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, and contentment, you fill your heart with joy and you open your dopamine faucet…you live your life through your joyful heart, keeping your recovery viewpoint of reality alive and well.

And, when you live your life through your joyful heart, keeping your recovery viewpoint of reality alive and well, you realize that whatever is happening in your life is necessary in your life and is necessary in your recovery, and fearlessly, you accept it as part of your life. In the end, your Recipe “curing yourself” viewpoint of reality becomes your actual reality, being cured from Parkinson’s.

What is in the past is in the past. Detach from it and let it go.
What is in the present is reality. Immerse yourself in what is real in the moment.
Your viewpoint of this present reality helps determine your future.

What is your viewpoint of reality?

It is your life. It is your choice.

Look inside your heart and make the choice that feels right to you.

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

Howard

    Thank you Howard. I am slowly getting to grips with my own abilities to change my physiology – and faith and belief are so important. Faith in the recipe and faith in a higher power – and faith in myself leads to belief that PD can be halted and reversed – so to all my fellow travellers – hang on in there and remember that bumps in the road are just that – we can get over them because we are worth it, and when we do SMILE and CELEBRATE – that gets the ole dopamine flowing – love Jan

    Very nicely written, Howard!

    I think I understand the simple fact that there is a choice, and we actually have the power to make either choice. I think my ego is falling back on its last bastion of defense, procrastination. I hope to work through this by keeping in mind the reward for making the right choice: becoming a source of joy and contentment for myself, family and friends!

    A step further…

    One man is sitting on a fence looking at a cow and thinks of a juicy steak. Ten years and one case of Parkinsons later, the same man is sitting on a fence looking at a cow and thinks about being in the presence of a sacred being!

    Sitting in awe of all you wonderful sacred beings,

    Chris in Wisconsin

    Thank you Howard!
    What a boost to read these past posts and hearing from so many other wonderful people. I am exhibiting many signs of progress in addition to a general feeling of happiness, contentment and well being. I told my amazing supportive husband that I’m starting to feel “normal” he gave me a sideways glance as if to say “you’ve never been normal.” We both cracked up and agreed!!! If I were “normal” I would be taking conventional meds and not taking my recovery into my own hands. Again Godbless you, Sally, family and your amazing work !

    Howard, in a circuitous way I come to you as a person with Parkinson’s filled with anxiety, fear and depression over my condition. After reading some of your suggestions I am beginning to understand that it is “OKAY” to feel this way and by redirecting my feelings in a more positive way, there is light at the end of tunnel, in fact it has been there all the time in my life, I just need to turn the switch. Thank you George
