Fighting Parkinson’s, and you are extraordinary, really!

We have spent the last month discussing awareness. When you are aware that you are having your recovery, trusting that not only have you picked the correct path, but also, that you will persevere and see it through to the end, you are extraordinary. That’s right…you are extraordinary, really!


1. Going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary (Merriam-Webster dictionary)
2. Exceptional in character, amount, extent, degree, etc.; noteworthy; remarkable (Online dictionary)
3. If you describe something or someone as extraordinary, you mean that they have some extremely good or special quality. (Collins English dictionary).
4. “A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.” Wade Boggs
5. “I don’t have to chase extraordinary moments to find happiness – it’s right in front of me if I’m paying attention and practicing gratitude.” Brene Brown
6. “Your ordinary acts of love and hope point to the extraordinary promise that every human life is of inestimable value.” Desmond Tutu
7. “Heroes are ordinary people who make themselves extraordinary.” Gerard Way

All of you are EXTRAORDINARY! By doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, you are: Going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary, showing exceptional character, causing a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes, practicing gratitude, realizing that your life is of inestimable value, and being the HERO in your own recovery journey. To sum it up, you are quite EXTRAORDINARY!!!

However, if you are overthinking this, if you have any doubt just how extraordinary you are, each and every one of you, please spend 9 minutes and 22 seconds watching this video (also, I think it will inspire those of you who already know how extraordinary you are):


You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    I’ve listened to a few of Sadhguru videos very interesting man, very calm easy to listen to and makes a lot of sense in most cases! Once you have made your mind up especially for us, follow through and keep going instead of overthinking like we all do! My symptoms have increased to another level the last 2 weeks, do I stop or keep going! My mind was made up my from the start, keep going until I put my soul, mind, body into recovery how ever long that takes! Love to all and thank you Howard for this message 😀😀😀😀😀

    Clear Message

    Thank you so much for these words of wisdom and truth. Kind regards from me, Harinamananda (my spiritual name), to all of you!

  4. Sakina K says:

    Good morning Mr Howard and fellow warriors. Happy Friday.
    Beautiful message!! Yes we all are extraordinary.

  5. Val H says:

    I’d never heard of Sadhguru before and feel blessed to be introduced to him. His message feels so on the button, it’s as if someone had asked him directly to describe what it’s like to commit to the Recipe and stick to it. Rick, I admire your unswervable stance. Henrik, how wonderful to have a spiritual name!

    • Henrik D says:

      Hello Val! Yes, we all have our soulname, don’t we? The problem is we tend to forget it due to our weak memory…But as a clue both our material and spiritual name usually starts on the same letter, in my case letter H.
      I got my spiritual name some 25 years ago via a senior devotee of Lord Krishna though I never joined the movement. Nowadays there are internet sites for translating material names into sanskrit/spiritual names.
      The interesting thing about this is to see wether the person is living up to the his or her name. If so, then the spiritual name is no mistake and one can be happy just remembering it! Even sing it for purification.
      Thank you for your most essential question, and good luck with everything!

      • Val H says:

        Fascinating, Henrik, thank you. I hope I discover my spiritual name serendipitously when my soul is ready to receive it.
        Val (for now).

    Hi Howard and warriors, like Val, I have not listened to this guy before but I look forward to seeing more of him. I love his lightheartedness in delivering his wisdom. Easy to listen to and what a stunning face and eyes, you can see the spirit radiating from him. ❤️
    Thanks Howard. Yes I agree, anyone who has this disease is extraordinary as I have said before, it ain’t for the faint hearted. 😇.
    Hope everyone staying as positive. As for our Aussie warrior, Rick, you’re a legend. 😊
    Val, I missed you last week my friend. 😊
    Big Love to all.
    Karen xx💕

      Hello Karen
      Sometimes, less of me is more. LOL. As Corrie fans, as well as blog buddies, we are always connected. I hope your little bit of Ireland is looking lovely this shining month of May and Mary. Stay extraordinary!

      • Karen In Ireland says:

        Val, ordinarily yes, I agree with the sentiment, but not when it comes to you and your posts and I know a lot of warriors would agree with ME. lol.
        Sweet that you know that May is Mary’s month. As a child we used to make a little alter to her with bluebells and cowslips that we would pick from the fields. ( one of my goals is to make it out to the garden under my back window where the bluebells are calling to me, before the month of may is out for our lady 😇)
        Have an eventful week with no drama of course. Every day’s a good day 😁xx

    Still here and still doing the recipe despite increased symptoms trying to derail me. My faith of a full recovery is unwavering. I have to keep reminding myself how far I have come which is extraordinary. Thank you for all your support and inpiration. XX
