God’s Eyes

I am the conscious witness

The observer of the experience.

I am intimate with the challenges of the journey

The forks in the road

And the knowledge that this ‘human’ experience is temporary.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 188 … More to Learn – Self Love!

doveI occasionally find myself asking, given everything I’m doing and everything I’ve learned, why haven’t begun to recover my health. The answer is always the same. It’s because I haven’t learned everything I need to know, particularly as it relates to dissolving fear, living in spiritual consciousness and actualizing self love. A recent experience shed some light on this for me.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 175 … Worry!

trustIf you are experiencing a neurological disorder [parkinson’s, ALS, MS] chances are, you’ve spent too much of your life worrying. I certainly have! Worrying about what people think of me. About failing. Worrying about getting beaten up, being laughed at, spanked, criticized, punished, etc. Worrying about money, keeping my job, the mortgage, the kids, my parents, etc. And where did it get me? Absolutely nowhere!

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 173 … What is Spiritual Transformation?

forestI have been asked, what is spiritual transformation? My answer is this. It is the process of becoming spiritually conscience. Buddhists refer to it as enlightenment. It’s when we begin to look at life differently. When we no longer see trees, as simply trees or people as simply, people. It occurs when we understand that there is a reason for our ‘being’ and that there is a reason for suffering.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 165 … Overcoming Detrimental Beliefs!

hidden fearsThe biggest single challenge I’ve faced on my journey to recover my health is overcoming the hidden [unconscious] detrimental beliefs, which when triggered, put me in a state of fear that leaves me experiencing extremely intense symptoms. It has been happening almost on a daily basis.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 161 … Conscious Presence!

meditationBased on repeated experience, I’ve decided, actually, more like conclusively concluded, that the best way to combat fear is to live in the present moment … also called living in conscious presence. Actually, let me rephrase this proclamation slightly. I don’t really like the word “combat.”  It implies conflict. Resistance. Let’s change it to “dissolve” fear. The reason for this conclusion, is that, again based on my experience, whenever I’m engaged in thought, I invariably end up in a thought that puts me in a state of stress or fear, which in turn causes my symptoms to intensify. The only comforting thing about this is that happens to everyone. Spiritual catalyst, Teal Swan, refers to it as ego coming in the back door. This morning, I experienced this phenomenon firsthand.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 115 … Our spiritual journey always supersedes the physical!

labyrinth1I love epiphanies! Insights! They’re like opening presents under the Christmas tree! Makes you feel like a wide-eyed kid!

I had an epiphany this morning. Our spiritual journeys always supersede the physical. The impetus for this epiphany, was my  ponderance over why I experienced an improvement in my symptoms this past summer and a worsening this fall. I kind of knew the answer [that I had more to learn], but wasn’t 100% certain. And so I walked up to the labyrinth near my house with this question in mind.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 102 … The Ultimate Challenge!

buddhaLiving in the present moment, according to Buddhist teaching, is the key to experiencing peace, love and joy!  However, living in the present moment when experiencing the collective of symptoms the medical establishment defines as Parkinson’s is a significant challenge. It is the ultimate challenge of acceptance. Why? Because living in the present moment brings me face to face with these symptoms pretty much every moment I’m awake.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 99 … Seek Love

osho loveI was inspired to write this blog by a dear friend. She sent me an e-mail with the Osho quote you see pictured above. It is an important reminder that whatever we are motivated by will usually find us. It’s like the person who leaves the city for fear of being a victim of a crime, rather than moving to the country for the pure joy of country living, only to be mugged in the country.
