The Joy of Parkinson's

There was a post some time back about finding joy in Parkinson's. As a Spiritually Born Christian you become an alien on this world. There are those who hate you for being closed minded. There are those who tolerate you, even if you are closed minded. There are those of you who really want to experience our world but can not, and TRUE Parkies. We seem to know who we are, we are brothers at arms.

  • I don't know why I feel compelled to always take your bait................

    Matthew 13:24-30

    'The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. The owner's servants came to him and said, "Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?" "an Enemy did this," he replied. "The servants asked him. "Do you want us to pull them up?" "No," he answered, "because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn."

    Now I am trying to relate this parable to what you are trying to say....which is far from clear.

    You start your post by saying "There was a post some time back about finding joy in Parkinson's. " OK.....so I looked for it and to my surprise there were several. I didn't know which you could have been referring to until I read your next line.

    "As a Spiritually Born Christian you become an alien on this world." Yes I concede that often the strict orthodox of any religion is looked at as "odd". Since Josephsimon wrote posts about joy in Parkinson's that contained religious references I am assuming this is what you were referring to.

    Next you say "There are those who tolerate you, even if you are closed minded. There are those of you who really want to experience our world but can not, and TRUE Parkies. We seem to know who we are, we are brothers at arms. " I would very much like more clarity in this statement. It seems to me you are first saying that some people tolerate religious zealots. But then you switch to Parkies. And I think you are saying there are two kind of people... Those that want to know what it is like to be a Parkie and the real Parkies that do know.

    The parable from the Bible is about sorting out the bad from the good, or perhaps the true from the not true. Surely you are not saying there are good Parkies and bad Parkies......I do wish you could articulate more of the point you are trying to make....and I do wish I could resist trying to make sense out of your posts. Your posts take too much work and time to decipher.

  • What I am saying is that " all that glitters is not gold " and every one who holds a Bible in his hand and fights for Christian rights is Christian. 100 Years ago someone was promised a Caliphate.

  • Look to the players and ask questions. Don't be happy if you do not know the answer research it. Hmmm lets see the heads of state Trump has seen. Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey, Russia. That's an interesting group of players. Now if he can get England ( Brixit ) and France on board to resolve the issue of boarders . If you have seen the movie you know that one man can change the course of human events, even if he is not a head of state.

    A 2 state solution will never work for Peace. A one state solution would, but that would require all new boundaries. Starting to get the picture yet. I still have only scratched the surface.

    What is the Greatest Deal that will ever be made. Who is the greatest deal maker of all time. We will have to see.

  • Now this you will love. In the War of Ideas if Climate Change is one side what is on the other? Religion. Chrislam - Coexist - We worship the Same God of Abraham these 3 world religions should exist side by side in unity.

  • "We worship the Same God of Abraham these 3 world religions should exist side by side in unity. " ABSOLUTELY!

  • Wow, you are on both sides of the spectrum. Very interesting. I am learning from you. What if I tell you that Goldie has brought the players together ( Remember this is fictitious ) and started a peace plan, would you change your mind about him?

  • There was a question asked of me, do you consider PD as a mental illness? At that time I said yes by definition, a chemical imbalance of the brain. When I asked my DR. she said that she sees the problem as being a Nero illness.

  • I am not wanting to Preach and will not. Unfortunately religion and politics walk hand in hand. I lean to the Calvinist side of the spectrum. I can assure you that Goldie is using my playbook and has surrounded himself with others who use my playbook.

    If there is somebody who cares I will continue but if not......

  • Nice and refreshing approach to dealing with PD. A Christian perspective is positive.
