SPIRITUAL TERMINOLOGY AND MEANINGS

When beginning one’s spiritual journey, we always come across spiritual terminology that’s new to us. It’s difficult to discern their meanings when, in many cases, people use them in different and often conflicting ways. To better serve the spiritual newcomer, I’ve begun a repository of spiritual terms and their meanings, all collected in a single database!
