Shaky Foot Wisdom
On This Particular Two Day
February 22, 2022
Being curious, I went looking to see what I could find about this particular day resplendent with twos, 02222022. One astrologer wrote, “You’re expanding outward, bringing more elements into your sphere. It’s an opportunity for those who choose to do so. There’s always going to be pain and learning. But there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
Along this Parkinson’s journey, I can think of nothing I would like better than light at the end of the tunnel. Perhaps that is indeed how things will pan out, perhaps as disease progression goes on, not.
Of late, I am becoming reacquainted with both the subject of light and the experience as well. Beneath the ongoing awareness of Parkinson’s symptoms of generalized muscle pain and sleep disturbance, I find at times a quite remarkable sense of peace. It may well be that the matter of ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ is more this inside awareness of peace, of stillness and an overall sense of satisfaction that no matter what, I am right now ripe in the midst of living my best life.
Like everyone, the past is a landscape littered with the both the good and the unpleasant events of a life lived long and well. However, what I am in the midst of discovering is that the negative interpretations I had attributed to these are simply mere brushstrokes that I have the power to paint with a different hue, from an ever-available multicolored palette.
That which I had thought would never cease to remind me of light’s opposite, darkness, has left the building. I am at substantial peace, no matter what Parkinson’s symptoms are going on. Once again, the lessons of this path reveal the truth that more than anything else, everything is going to be just alright as there is light at then end of the tunnel as certain as there is revealed life in this very moment.
