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 completely 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 the is all minds. The process of sourcing and refining these definitions is already harmonizing the field of consciousness, and as more people encounter this work, it is conceivable that the “Babel effect” will disappear. Meanwhile, the definitions in Root Meanings will continue to be distilled and clarified until pure awakeness speaks for itself.
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. Focus has shifted to completing Beyond Every Teaching. All of the definition below are due to be revisited and brought up to the current level of clarity. Work will resume in January 2024.
3. Bold terms in the table of contents indicate that the associated definitions have been updated to the current level of clarity. Other entries will be revised over time. If you would like to see an entry added or updated, you may submit a request here.
4. Unless otherwise noted, all works in progress and the final work are copyright Jeff Vander Clute.
