Redefining The Word 'Life' Part 1

Life is usually spent working to earn money to survive and entertain ourselves, where instead of having money to get the basic necessities to survive, we abuse the use of it - in gambling, in buying addictive drugs, etc. that compromises our body's survival. 

We sometimes spend beyond our means that we end up accumulating so much debt and become unable to repay it. At the point of death, most of us have so much debt that we are unable to come up with money to pay for burial expenses.

When my father was 85 yrs. old, he was still applying for a job.

A dignified life for all from birth to death is what i envision -where everyone is given money to pay for basic necessities, plus a provision for more for those who want to work and do that which they enjoy doing.

Life as what life really is,  is not understood what more enjoyed.

In this blog, I am looking at the word 'Life' to shed light into the quality of life we live and our struggle for survival. My objective is to redefine this word and live its expanded meaning.

I am going to look at the dictionary meaning of this word to see if i can relate to its different meanings and then i will look at the phonetics of the word to identify the meaning I gave to the different sounds in it.

Having seen my relationship to the word, I will do self-forgiveness for using it in a limited way so that I can 'repair' my relationship with the word. I will then correct myself and redefine the word to expand its meaning so i can use the word in my life and expand my expression.

Education And Health

Education & Health

Some Quotes (others corrected by me) from the video:

'There are so many subjects in school that i cannot relate to in terms of, ‘how can i apply this in my life?’ Of course there are some subjects that I can apply in my life, but how can i digest that when i have no basis to even look at 'who I am'? That’s the first - which is the start of every knowledge in this world. I have to make sense of who i am’.'

'Why is this not being given in school?'

'In the Psychology curriculum for example, we should have a subject on commonsense of ‘who I am’ here' .

'It's normally about what other people thought about in the past & what people wrote about that - that constitutes our knowledge and information'.

'With that salary you are getting - well in the Philippines, they are getting very low salary - it will stop you from looking and changing the system. My advise is not to let that stop you'

'For those teachers who receive small salary, what if you are being given a basic or living income, where for example you are being given $3000 a month and everyone else is receiving that, on top of that you can still teach (plus you are being paid for teaching, on top of the living income you receive every month), will that salary be low?'

Our value as humans is equal to the value of life. Who can top that? You can't top that. That is exactly who you are.

We are a part of that life that - that one life that we live here.

'Quoting this little bit of information from someone who you perceive as someone who's gonna change the system. No.'

'We can change the system from the roots. First we have to work with 'The Primary Principle of Life' - What Is Best For All Of Us.'

3 Redefining The Word 'TEAM' SF

Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 1
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 2
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 3
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 4

When looking at the word 'Team', I realized that I have given it a meaning that is  not optimum for me to live as equal to who I really am - within wholeness, so i am forgiving myself here for accepting and allowing that...

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to present a different picture of me when I am with my team and a different picture of me when I am in another team where I embody 2 different personalities - trying to speak as if I am together but deep within me I am uncertain of who I really am.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to  want to be in a leadership position to be able to prove myself to myself and to everyone around me, that I am better than the rest so that I will feel satisfied that I as the personality is okay in terms of the way I talk and the way I convince others of who I have become as the personality. 

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to stand for what is best for me rather than what is best for all life - within self-interest and decide from that starting point within a team.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to - within jealousy, hold on to what I believe is best for me and some members - so stop other members of my team or other teams that we compete with to proceed with whatever course of action they are walking - within self-interest.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that what i learned as the most efficient way of handling groups/teams is the the best way to do it - believing that as i was taught that, that is the best way I can do things -  so implement changes in a team I am a part of,  guided by what I learned from information that was given to me by others either in school or given by my immediate circle of friends, colleagues, and relatives.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to decide as a leader in a team or group setting where i believe my decision is  the right decision and so other decisions contrary to that is unimportant - within superiority.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to defend the existence of me as the mind - as the personality, by deciding from the basis of what i like and not like rather than consider what is best for all.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe I will be inferior to the group if my decisions are not upheld - so within that compete to win within the team or with other teams - within superiority

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that the reason I am in a team is so everyone will be entertained by each other and if I do not get entertained anymore, I leave the group.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to - as the perceived leader in the team, reason using information and logic that is separate from me and separate from all, as me - so I am not even aware of the consequence of the decisions I make nor do i care about the decisions I make as long as it benefits me -

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be righteous believing that my opinions and views matter and others don't  matter - within superiority 

I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to see how my decisions will impact the life or process of others - whether it will support their process or sabotage it - within apathy.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that we are already birthed here - believing that I as the individual personality - that i defined separate from all, is who i really am as the being - so express myself as that - without questioning the separation I have defined myself within.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to compete with other teams within an organization to win for prestige, money, and power

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to try to out-do other members of the team I belong, to win - within competition.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to have a goal that is separate from me where i become unaware of who I am while walking towards that goal - looking at a future projected illusionary reality.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that my value is becoming less when i lose a competition and more when i win.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to focus my eyes on the reward of winning rather than be here and be aware of who i am to within that, interact with members of the group and walk as equals.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that as I am part of the system, I can ease myself gracefully within it and change some parts of the system  - within an idea of limited change - rather than see realize and understand that all that i have received as a 'gift' that life has given me within my process of self-perfection will be given back to all so all life can be benefit, therefore birthed, making it possible to birth life on the physical. 

When and as I see myself becoming the leader or the follower in a group and doing that which is best for me and not of/for the team, then justifying that, I stop - I breathe. I realize that I will compromise my process and other's process this way, so rather than have this starting point, stand for what is best for everyone for the best of my ability - for the benefit all.

I commit myself to stand for what will be best for all in a team - whether as a leader or as a member, knowing that we all come from the dust of the earth - using commonsense to come to a solution when presented with a situation/problem .

How I Defined The Word 'Team' Within Its Sound


1. When I am in a team someone will give me tea
2. The tea is equal to who i am 

1. When I am in a team, someone will eat with me and I will have company and it will be a pleasurable experience.

2. I am equal to the food I eat as plants and animals etc. - as they are here with humans walking this one life as a team - supporting the body to get the nutrition it needs for what is mutually beneficial for all.

meat (backwards, with the e and a interchanged)
1. The team will have meat for me to eat so i will get pleasure from it.

2. The meat of humans, animals, plants etc. comes from the dust of the earth and to dust it will return - equal and one.

1. The team mates through interaction with each other and decide on goals, plans that is buried within structure that is limited - predicts the future in the present and restricts access to doorways where all can benefit within a preconceived idea of what a team should be and what a leader should be - within self-interest - unaware of who and what they are and why they are in the team and behaving the way they do - believing they are aware within a limited idea of who, what and why they are there - so compromise the existence of the group and limits its expansion.

2. The members of the team mate - meaning they interact with each other - the starting point being what is best for all life - walks moment by moment, walking into or out of structure when needed, cross-referencing with each other, where their words and actions speak of who, what and why they are - spotting problems and correcting as they walk - opening doorways for everyone to grow and expand to their utmost potential.

Happy B-day Team Life Member!

Happy b-day my friend
thank you for belonging 
to the same team

A team that is not 
based on differences
but in who we are as beings

Team Life 
is that one team
where all belong together

We sing the same song
of equality 
we blog and vlog
not for money

But for oneness and equality

You supported me in many ways
your patience and cross-reference
is appreciated

In gratitude
to the dust of the earth
I thank you for being here

This is my greeting for this day
that is our moment by moment walking
as a member of
this one team 

You may look different
with a different colored skin
or you may look the same 
with the same color of skin

but I can relate to who you are
as who I am is here

The path is thorny
but we remain
always correcting ourselves

Sometimes we have fun chatting
sometimes we have 
different perspectives
but i am grateful to the dust 
of the earth

For equally sharing
life in so many ways

Redefining the Word 'TEAM' Part 1 Introduction

Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 1
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 2
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 3
Redefining The Word 'Team' Part 4

What will be the benefit for all of us if we work in unison for that which is what is best for all of us?

Birthing ourselves here as physical beings assisting each other for what is best for all of us.

It will be the solution that we always wanted to give ourselves.

So, when I selected a word to redefine in the group, I chose the word 'Team'. 
Later on I will redefine the word 'Life' as I am working on the word 'Team Life'.

How did I experience this word 'Team'?

I worked with different teams in my life. My experience in a team environment was that we were a team trying to surpass other teams. In essence, the underlying goal we had was to outdo the other - or compete with them to win.

As the individuals within the group, we also  competed among other individuals as if our value as a person depended on it. 

I saw myself having thoughts about how our team can win over the other team and how we can get the reward. 

I felt superior to the other members when I win the competition. When I didn't win, or when I lost, I felt like I lost a part of me or my value as a person who had depreciated.

This was not something that supported me in my life because I was really creating stress within me - where one moment I was up and another moment I was down.

There was also no concern about what will benefit all. 
Rather, my choices were either motivated by my lack of popularity within the group or my circle of supporters within the group. This defined me rather than me standing as the redefined word 'Team'.

I did not speak up to be heard. I suppressed myself from talking. I was not clear in what I stood as, so I did not have a stand that will benefit all. It was about how I can benefit and how others perceive me and what i think compared to what they think.

I recognized the desire to succeed and to win being the underlying motivation for what I was doing - basically to survive as an employee and as a member of the team

I was in coping mode so I was fueling the machine of this world - set up for me/others to win and me/others to lose. So, when I won within the system, I was really winning in a system that is rigged to fail because it does not support what is best for all life.

It was more of the structure that I defined within my mind that i considered as best for me rather than working as who i really am - as that being in relation to everyone else - who are parts of that one life that I am a part of.

This is the reason why I am looking at this word - to redefine it so i can live this word as the corrected version of the word - as me
