My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 177 … A new way of looking at things: overcoming detrimental beliefs!

bodhi treeThe purpose of this blog post is to set the record straight … for me! You see, I was raised to understand life in certain ways and this understanding led me to develop a whole raft of detrimental beliefs, which have caused me considerable suffering and are at the root of the neurological condition I’m experiencing. I was also raised in accordance with strict rules and expectations, much of which was based on this understanding, and failure to follow these rules and meet these expectations was often dealt with in quite a harsh way, causing considerable emotional pain, much of which was never resolved.

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.

A corporation took advantage of my father!

cell phoneA corporation did indeed take advantage of my father! A few months ago, he went to a local retail outlet looking for a cell phone. He explained that all he wanted was a very simple phone that would enable him to make phone calls and send text messages. He came home with a high end smart phone and a two year, $90.00 a month plan, including a $20.00 a month data plan. He was grossly oversold and because the phone is so complicated to him, he has never used it.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 147 … Let fear guide us to love!

self love1In the past month, my journey with this neurological condition [parkinson’s] has led me to the door of what I believe is my ultimate destination … Self love! Actually, I’m not quite sure how to characterize this experience. I don’t know if I am intended to discover self love, enact my innate self love or simply actualize self love. Perhaps this uncertainty is moot. The point is, I believe, the reason I developed a very debilitating neurological condition is because I lack self love, and perhaps more to the point, because I am experiencing self loathing. This also led me to the conclusion that our collective journey is all about discovering self love. It is about connecting with our true spiritual ” loving” nature and living in oneness with Spirit [God].

Recovering from Parkinson’s Disease: Step 10 – Spirituality

utopiaGrowing up in the tiny hamlet of Bala, Ontario, Canada, our parents sent my brothers and me to church every Sunday [they never joined us … hmmm!], first to Sunday school and then to regular church. I don’t recall being particularly enthralled with the experience, but we did learn about God. We were told that God was an all powerful being who lived outside of us, up in heaven, and that this God would judge us, condemn us and persecute us if we sinned. Again, I don’t recall what I thought of this notion, but I do know that it didn’t inspire me to behave.

Butterflies, Beavers and Berries … Evidence That God Exists

beaverThe single most important purpose of our physical journey here on Earth is to become conscious of who we really are. It is to become aware of, understand and experience our true spiritual nature … our oneness with God and all that exists. Clearly, if this is our purpose, we have a lot of work to do!
