Day 220: Calling the Beast by it’s Name – Breast Cancer – The Culture – Day 5

I just received further results from my recent biopsy. I have the kind of cancer where the receptors within its cells are ER Positive – which means Estrogen is what makes this type of cancer grow. Thus, hormonal therapy made to block the physical body from being able to absorb Estrogen is a common/combined treatment plan.

“If cancer cells have receptors for these hormones, it means that they are at least TRYING to perform the tasks of a normal breast cell. They’re behaving—somewhat.”

When I hung up the phone from talking to my nurse, I noticed how me as my mind ‘felt’, ‘better’. I had to stop myself from repeating over and over within my mind what the nurse said – ‘this is definitely in your favor’...

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t glad to hear what she said, but that begs me to answer the following questios.

What is my favor? Do I favor this kind of cancer over another kind of cancer? Stop – Don’t Prejudge.

I Commit myself to Breathe and Not pre-judge the information.

What am I in favor of? Drugs? Hormone Therapy? Supporting Big Pharma?  Earth? Life as all as one as equal?  Hunger? War? Equal Money?  

It’s important to me that I investigate the Culture surrounding breast cancer as well as the mentioning of cures.

Seriously, why do we keep giving Money to Rich folk to find the cures they’ll never approve?

How come we refuse to listen, to understand, that if a cure could be bought we would have already purchased it.

Money/Profit/Greed.  is the only Reason why there is no ‘Approved’ Cure for Cancer.

I mean, I just received my cancer diagnosis a week ago and already, I’m in debt for well over $6000 Dollars.

Like it or not, and I don’t like it, the Culture surrounding Breast Cancer, is a well-oiled machine, just like all the other cultures within our society. They’re here for one purpose and one purpose only, Profit, to feed the fat cats…

“Given the pink ribbon’s symbolic success, what’s wrong with it? Sulik argues that pink ribbon culture focuses attention on the wrong things and does it in a way that is not really contributing to progress toward preventing and curing cancer. It buries medical controversies, ignores environmental causes of cancer and insurance problems, and does not increase access to treatment for underserved populations.” — Judith Lorber

“Breast cancer, I can now report, did not make me prettier or stronger, more feminine or spiritual. What it gave me, if you want to call this a “gift,” was a very personal, agonizing encounter with an ideological force in American culture that I had not been aware of before—one that encourages us to deny reality, submit cheerfully to misfortune, and blame only ourselves for our fate.” ― Barbara Ehrenreich, Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America

“I commit myself to question the integrity of activists, and to remind activists that activism should be about a new world system that is best for all life always, and that any activist that cannot stand for what is best, is in fact only an extension of the system of greed that has failed Life in every way.” Bernard Poolman

The thing is, I’m beginning to understand how I have ‘sewn’ the oats of this that I’m walking. I have through my participation in negative and positive energetic experiences treated my body no different from the products that I consume daily. And, I made the ultimate sacrifice when I never stopped to consider what the highs and lows of energy demands from my physical body. Instead, I took my physical body for granted and I abused myself as it.

For Context Please Watch:
The Good and Bad Products of the Consciousness/Mind Factory: DAY 342

“And now, we’ve completely split ourselves into good products and bad products. And, you know, the same exist in this physical existence – we’re consuming ourselves – we’re consuming physicality – we’re consuming that which is, in fact, producing, or providing, natural life and living in this physical existence. For what? For products that have been determined by a particular, specific value to, according to that value, establish for ourselves into a certain social or heirarchical class or, a definition, or character, or personality within this life experience, in this world and this reality. Where, for those products to exist, physical reality – this physical existence – is being sacrificed. I mean, it doesn’t make sense – our existence – in any way whatsoever.” Sunette Spies

I continue to learn through DesteniI Process and DIP Lite and I appreciate the awesome support both provide.  I also want to say how much I also appreciate  the amazing support from my Partner, my Children, my Desteni I Process Buddy, and my fellow Destonians, all of which assist me daily to walk this Journey to Life.

Ok, tomorrow I am scheduled to meet with a surgeon, and so we continue to walk…
