Involuntary whooping

Tourette’s Syndrome is a mental disorder whose victims exhibit strange symptoms like twitches, beeps, whoops and even uncontrolled swearing. Neurologist Oliver Sachs described one sufferer who would constantly bow to the ground, shout and readjust his glasses. The strangest thing about him was that he is a skilled surgeon who, once he enters the operating theatre, loses all those symptoms until he has completed his task. Then the twitches, shouts and constant bowing return.
That man is a good example of what Jesus meant when he said: ‘If you insist on holding on to your life, you will lose it…self sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding your true self. real and eternal.’ Focusing on serving others is the surest way to overcoming those negative traits within us over which we seem powerless.
