I am not suggesting censorship ... just promoting a positive view at life in general.
If we took the fact we all have Parky in our lives and this forum was just about the day to day tribulations we all go through ... I would still encourage a positive thread heading as I believe it is through a positive attitude and state of mind that we manifest the good into our lives.
Parky just happens to be another hurdle put in front of us ... we can choose to be labelled by it or choose to be a positive human being who happens to have Parky.
It seems some of you are so determined to fight for your negative limitations that no amount of positivity will break you from that state ... and you know that what you focus on and add feeling to most you will attract to you ... I just don't understand why so many want to focus and attract negativity … maybe I am reading it wrong.
I understand to be balanced … night needs day, pain needs euphoria so that there is a point of reference ... How else do you know you are hot if you do not experience cold?
My belief (Long before Parky) is that my sub-conscious is always listening to what my conscious mind thinks, discusses and feels. The sub is tasked to manifest the things we think about ... it does not care if it is negative or positive ... it just delivers what YOU think about most ... so surely you would want to replace negative thoughts / beliefs with positive ones? Maybe not.
When I say since Parky my life has changed ... I mean since Parky I have chosen to focus on positive thoughts and ideas which will help me deal better with the disease.
I lost 10 KG by forcing myself to run.
I have written 184 poems ... four books on poetry from Parky to teen suicide to gambling addiction and surviving throat cancer.
My wife and I set up a foundation charity for orphans in Thailand (even on our honeymoon we helped the orphans).
I have offered to public speak at Parky association events in Australia to help others find there may be a new life after Parky.
I believe I am a more caring, loving, better listening person since Parky than before … does that not mean Parky has been a positive for me? I guess I just wanted to see if there were others on the forum who also felt they have had positives since Parky that they may not have had if Parky had not arrived.
Seeing many of your posts … I can say all forum members have had the positive of helping others with Parky … QUESTION: would you be on this forum helping others is you did not have Parky? That’s positive!I will leave you with a story rather than a poem …
5 frogs found their way from the creek to a full milk churn by the barn.
They hopped on the rim and saw it was full of milk. Happily they all jumped in and started drinking.
After a while there was an empty churn and five very full and fat frogs in the bottom of the churn.
They tried to hop but were too heavy to reach the top. The clanging noise soon attracted other frogs who sat on the rim of the churn and laughed down at the fat frogs.
They said “You silly buggers, you will die in there… there is no way you can get out”.
Two frogs in the churn croaked it through fear. The other three kept trying to jump whilst being laughed at and ridiculed.
Two frogs simply gave up and just sat there in a catatonic state convinced their fate was doomed.
The last frog just kept jumping even with the negative taunts from the outside frogs.
The more he jumped the more weight he lost until eventually he jumped out of the churn and headed back to the creek.
Why did this one frog get out when the others didn’t?
He was deaf … he thought the others were encouraging and cheering him so he kept going until he succeeded.
Sometimes it pays to be a deaf frog I guess
