We are the governors of the systems we attend to within our own bodies. We are the president, the king, the supreme monarch of the universe of I. We neither have ultimate control nor do we have a loss of control. We can’t help if we have a few cells go rogue. If they go cancerous and spread bad information to other cells and reproduce. We are left doing what clean up work we can to diagnose and treat the disturbance. We can control our exposure to sunlight and the cancerous cells that might be formed through intense radiation or exposure to known harmful circumstances. Sunblock or tan? We do have some options here. We can only do so much to protect ourselves from the hazards around us and those hazards that I am addressing relate only to our governance of our own bodies.
Society is another system though, do we fulfill our functions within our social construct? Do we give more than we receive in terms of positive influence and support? Do we spread negativity and the seeds of malignancy? Individually speaking are we a healthy productive cell, or a cancer? Our awareness is both a blessing and a curse. We’re prone to self-defeatist guilt and blame because it is much easier than a subject for our negativity be it through hate or depression. Than it is to find acceptance of our circumstances, responsibility and the determination to change, to adapt. Due to reflection we can change our view to find positive ways to change our social construct both with others and with our own bodies should we choose to do so. Shouldn’t we at least aim to find the best “me” that we can be?
