Root Meanings: Sourced Definitions for an Awakened Humanity is an emerging reference book of sourced definitions of 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 books is informing and empowering the other two.
The main function of Root Meanings is to illuminate the root meanings of spiritual and scientific vocabulary from the perspective of Source, which is the source of all meaning. 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 all minds. When the Mind that is all minds is completely empty of confusion, all that is is known directly and the need for definitions disappears. Thus one purpose of this book is to render itself unnecessary.
Root Meanings is a work in progress that is being shared for the benefit of early readers and as an experiment in defragmenting the Mind. The process of sourcing and refining these definitions is already clarifying the field of consciousness, and as more people encounter this work, it is conceivable that the “Babel effect” will be reversed. The definitions in Root Meanings will continue to be distilled and clarified until they resolve into pure awakeness.
