What is Self-forgiveness?

It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to dislike bitter taste and within that project my dislike of bitter tastes to the coffee beans, not wanting to eat it, and craving food with sweet tastes, believing that it gives me more pleasure when i eat it than eating food with bitter taste, justifying eating more sweets and connecting this to a memory of me eating bitter melon in the Philippines which is bitter when eaten raw just by itself, blaming the bitter melon for its bitter taste rather than looking at the bitter melon as what it is - a plant that i am using as food - to nourish the body, so instead of inflating the perceived negative experience of the past memory in the present through my aversion to bitter taste of coffee in the chocolate, be here as the breath within the body, present in this moment as I experience the bitter taste of the coffee.

Commitment To Correct Myself

I commit myself to when and as I see myself having aversion or dislike for the bitter taste of coffee when eating - i stop and breathe. I let myself experience the bitter taste and decide how much of it I will take in terms of portions to nourish the body, bring myself back to physical reality, release myself from the fear within my mind, where I interpret what I taste based from fears that I attached to a memory in the past charging it with a negative experience,  living the past in the present, where what is happening is, I am mentally reacting within my mind. So, I commit myself to be here as breath, aware of physical sensations in my mouth, the taste, as i eat or drink it, and see the coffee for what it is - as food.

Why am I expanding or redefining words?

Words are like microchips that has in it for example, thoughts, imaginations etc. that is an interpretation of reality in our mind. It is defined within what is best for us, as individuals, which is based on competition within survival of the fittest . So, in expanding or redefining a word our goal is to align its meaning to what the word is in physical reality - which is mutually beneficial for all of us, humans, plants, animals etc. as it is what the word is, realizing that we can forgive ourselves for the meaning we gave it and correct ourselves - giving it a meaning we can live and express ourselves as, in physical reality that aligns to what is best for all -  as Living Words.

Word Web:
The taste experience when quinine or coffee is taken into the mouth

My expanded definition of the word 'Bitter'
The taste experience of when quinine or coffee is taken into the mouth
- where the taste experience is not a mind experience, but rather, a physical experience.

A beverage consisting of an infusion of ground coffee beans 

My expanded definition of the word 'Coffee'

A beverage consisting of an infusion of ground coffee beans,that is part of the whole - that is life. It is being judged as ‘bad’ because we blame caffeine in the coffee for causing our disease or creating stress in our body when it is really us who are deciding how much of it to drink or not drink.
