The main networks of your body organise themselves. Redundancy provides the basis to reconfigure pathways temporarily or permanently unavailable. Millions, if not billions of chemical reactions happen in the realm of your body every second, facilitating a similar number of electric impulses.
Knowing the details of this torrent of minute transformations rarely helps to solve problems. You can hardly access these with your perception anyway. Cells organise themselves into functional units like organs, blood vessels and muscles, or as mobile carrier or intervention units.
A lot of things happen on a microscopic scale in a human body. The amount of body activity you can actually willingly control, pales in comparison to the autonomous processes keeping you alive. If you really want to, you can gain a certain level of control even over autonomous functions by using special yogic techniques, but you don’t need to in order to lead a healthy and happy life.
Air, water, food and company keep single cells happy within the body. The body itself acts like a single cell in a larger human organism like a family, community or work place. If cells within a body organise themselves, wouldn’t bodies as cells of the organism of society organise themselves as well? What can you do as a cell of human society, of the body social?
This leads straight to the next big question. What kind of relation exists between ‘you’ and ‘your body’? Ask yourself this question while dreaming or as meditation. As your body rests, you experience it without physical reasons. If you smell the roses which don’t exist you created them.
The idea of matter provides a convenient metaphor for the experiences of a physically manifest universe. Luckily, matter organises itself into molecules, stars, galaxies and all the rest. What role do you play in this entirely self-organising scenario? Where does self-organisation end and self-determination begin?
Self-determination can interfere with self-organisation early and radically within human beings. Or rather, egocentrism undermines the delicate dynamic balance of self-organisation. Any form of centrism creates implicit hierarchies, and thus skewed perspectives of the interconnectedness of nature.
‘You’ cannot exist without others, and without any company can’t continue the story of humanity, nor would anyone listen to it. You emanated into a body, a cell of a larger organism. This organism inhabits a larger organism as part of a diverse biosphere. You uniquely express your specific consciousness frequency within the spectrum of cosmic consciousness, just like everything and everyone around you.
The body acts as vehicle for the self and as reflection of it. Your body organises itself according your intention, even if your minds sometimes fails to acknowledge this. Your intention hide in your subconscious, programmed into tissue and not easy access for the conscious mind. Never mind, doesn’t matter.
