Meeting Parkinson's Disease With A Spiritual Response

Tony Lobl

By Tony Lobl

As if depression and addiction weren’t enough, we now learn Robin Williams also faced the daunting diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease.

But the extent of the tragedy may not stop there if speculation by his close friend Rob Schneider proves correct.

“Now that we can talk about it, Robin Williams was on a drug treating the symptoms of Parkinson’s. One of the side effects is suicide!” he wrote.

Scienza e Salute con Chiave delle Scritture: fuori dal tempo (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures: Timeless)


By Cristina Cordsen

Ogni attimo della nostra giornata è scandito dal tempo, tutto è misurato in minuti e ore, tutto ha un inizio e una fine. Ed è così che viviamo contando gli anni che ci allontanano o ci avvicinano a traguardi, eventi e persone. Nel suo libro Scienza e Salute con Chiave delle Scritture, la signora Eddy cita l'articolo apparso nel Lancet che racconta della ragazza che aspetta per anni alla finestra, nella speranza di vedere la persona amata tornare e priva della percezione del tempo non invecchia. "Credendo di continuare a vivere in quello stesso momento che l'aveva separata dal suo innamorato e senza contare gli anni, stava tutto il giorno alla finestra ad aspettare il suo ritorno.

Bons pensamentos previnem doenças de inverno (Good thoughts prevent winter diseases)

Tamara Grigorowitsch

By Tamara Grigorowitsch

Entretanto, se para muitas pessoas o inverno está associado à realização de certas atividades prazerosas, há uma categoria de “pensamentos invernais” que certamente não agrada: as assim chamadas “doenças de inverno”

(Taking the scarves out of the closet, testing a new soup recipe and drinking a nice hot chocolate are some of the many amusements of those who enjoy winter. However, whereas many people associate winter with certain pleasurable activities, there is a category of “wintry thoughts”, which certainly nobody likes: the so-called “winter diseases.”)
