Root Meanings

Sourced Definitions
for an Awakened Humanity

Root Meanings

Jeff Vander Clute

Introduction
4 March 2024

Root Meanings: Sourced Definitions for an Awakened Humanity is an emerging reference of sourced definitions for terms that are used in spirituality and science. Root Meanings is co-arising with Beyond Every Teaching and The Ladder of Awakening, and each of the three books is helping to clarify and empower the other two.

The main function of Root Meanings is to illuminate the meanings of spiritual and scientific vocabulary from the perspective of Source. In root-level clarity, every concept serves awakeness, and supremely clear definitions turn words into transmissions of enlightenment. As communication becomes increasingly lucid, confusion and unawakeness disappear from the Mind that is all minds. When the Mind is empty of confusion, all that is is known directly and there is no longer a need for definitions. Thus one purpose of this book is to transcend itself.

Root Meanings is an experiment in clarifying and defragmenting the Mind that is all minds. The process of sourcing and refining these definitions is already harmonizing all minds within the one Mind, and as more people encounter this work, it is conceivable that the “Babel effect” will disappear. For now, the definitions in Root Meanings will continue to be distilled and clarified until pure awakeness speaks for itself.

Please note:

1. All of these definitions are still emerging and evolving, and more will be added. Although the book version of Root Meanings is a few years away, this draft is being shared for the benefit of early readers.

2. Bold terms in the table of contents indicate that the associated definitions have been updated to the current, or near-current, level of clarity. Other entries will be revised over time.

3. The intention is to make these definitions available under a suitable Creative Commons license. In the meantime, unless otherwise noted, all works in progress and the final work are copyright Jeff Vander Clute.
