My Experience of the Peppercorn:
I was doing a marinara sauce with capers so i decided to ask my partner to get capers from the shelves as i shop for vegetables in a store here in Dallas as i was about to make a marinara sauce for my client.

Capers are small round berries normally used in mediterranean cooking. When i returned home i put the peppercorns inside the sauce. When i was tasting it, i tasted different from the normal marinara sauce i normally do. I tried making it taste right, by putting other herbs.. I realized we bought the pickled peppercorn instead of the capers. The people who ate it did not notice. I was a little bit disappointed. I did notice the taste difference.

===
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to compare the pickled pepper to the capers

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to judge the pickled pepper as less than myself and the capers as more than myself

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to design competition within comparison judgment and jealousy within my experience of the pickled pepper- not realizing i am equal to all that exist as all came from the same substance all are made of.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to compare the size of the peppercorn to the size of the capers

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the flavor of the pickled capers is better than the flavor of the pickled peppercorn

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the marinara sauce should taste a certain way according to how it normally is being made - believing that the culinary rules and culture dictates how the human preparing the food will express oneself and how the marinara sauce will express itself

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to judge the taste of the marinara sauce with pickled peppercorns as less than myself and the taste of the  marinara sauce with capers as more than myself

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not identify the pickled peppercorn through its texture - hard, stays its shape when squeezed

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to not identify the capers through its texture - soft, disintegrates when squeezed

Self-commitment:
I commit myself to when and as i see myself  comparing the taste of the pickled peppercorn to the taste of the capers - i stop - i breathe - i realize that i am designing competition when i compare the 2. .This gives me a feeling that the capers taste better than the pickled peppercorns - where i see the peppercorn less than what it is and the capers as more than what it is - where one wins and one lose - not realizing that this is not a competition, and that what is best for all is for me to select which taste i prefer and put that ingredient in the marinara sauce. I stop participating as this is not what is best for me. I realize this is not what is best for all because i will create a world based on competition.

Memory

Self-forgiveness:
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within  a memory of how the marinara sauce taste
i forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within the memory of the taste of the peppercorn
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within the memory of the taste of the capers
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within the memory of the size of the peppercorn.
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within the memory of the size of the capers
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to define myself within the memory of the color of the peppercorn which is grayish black with a tinge of green

Self-commitment Statements:

I commit myself to when and as i see myself .separating myself from physical reality by living the past - defining myself within the memory of how the marinara taste - and judging which taste is more than myself  and which taste is less than myself - within my mind - i stop and breathe. I realize that what i am doing is sifting though my experiences of the past - where i separate myself from what is here - not realizing i am here as breath in every moment.
===
Backchat

Self-forgiveness:
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to use backchat as a method of judging the peppercorn as less than myself - and the capers as more than myself - by thinking ' this will not taste like a marinara sauce. He will not like the taste of it' - the capers definitely taste better.' - and within this i forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to use backchat to define myself within like and dislike, better or worse, good and bad.

Self-commitment
I commit to when and as i see myself using backchat as a method of judging the peppercorn as less than me - i stop and breathe. I correct myself. I stop participating.
==

Self-forgiveness:
I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to use body movement  as a method of judging the peppercorn as less than me - and the capers as more than me - by widening my eyes and moving my body using my feet to go near the bottle of pickled peppercorns and moving my nose next to the bottle of the pickled peppercorns and smelling it - and not having liked the smell of it - i moved my body back - and hold my breath

I commit to when and as i see myself using body movements as a method of judging the peppercorn as less than me and the capers as more than myself - where my eyes widening, moving my body using my feet to go near the bottle of pickled peppercorns and moving my nose next to the bottle of pickled peppercorns and smelling it- and not having liked the smell of it - i moved my body back - and hold my breath - i  stop and breathe. I correct myself. I stop participating.

How I Created This World:

I forgive myself 'as the elite', that i have accepted and allowed myself to to be in a position of affluence where i deprive others of equal access to the resources on earth - that is given by the earth unconditionally for all - that all may survive.

I forgive myself 'as the workers', that i have accepted and allowed myself to earn money being employed by corporations who make profit from selling peppercorn spices - not realizing that i can assist in establishing an equal money system where all will be given equal amount of money to survive in dignity - without having to work for it - as i have the right to life - as i am a part of life.

I forgive myself 'as the corporations' that i have accepted and allowed myself to mine the earth of peppercorns in exchange for profit - in an unequal monetary system - not realizing that we can assist in establishing an equal money system - where the peppercorns will be enjoyed by all - and use it to support the body to survive - as the earth gave them for all to enjoy 


Self-commitment:
I commit to expose the abuse of the peppercorns in the food industry 
I commit to expose the wastage of peppercorn in the food industry in the name of entertaining ones taste buds
