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.
