Connection – To Be In A System.

To Be In A System

Appendix, tonsils, you wouldn’t want them ripped out unnecessarily however should they become malignant we do so, quickly. They are a part of a system, a group of organs, a bundle of tissues, a sheet of cells, cells with individual functions, characteristics, need for resources, reproduction and maladies. Should they prove to be malignant to their host or supporting systems however they are cast aside, perhaps not easily. But we do after all lose our colons, one or both kidneys as well, and we adapt to live without them. Hearts are becoming replaceable, also not easily, but the possibility is there. What is this to you, you ask?

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? 

To be in a system is to cause to stand in a position to gain or lose because of an action taken or a commitment made to a regularly acting or interdependent group of items which form a unified whole. 
Our wealth as a system is based on our respect for the strength that comes from diversity. 

About Laura DeLucio Gross

The beauty of the word is the subconscious nature in which it finds it's way upon our lips or past our fingertips. The stroke of our fingers on a pen or a key or the softest breath carried past our lips have such an impact that friends, relatives and strangers can carry such words with them in their minds, to come along with us on a journey into our thoughts. In our darkest hours we must always remember to remain conscious that people have lived and died by words. I am a wife, mother, confidant and friend to many. There are no strangers in my world. Only friends that I have not yet had a chance to know. Sensually minded, self-educated, street wise, natural living, power tool wielding, minimalist mom with transcendental aspirations.
