Rooted and elevated, grounded and inspired: your true nature is this. ROOTLAEV is a return to it. Basically, UpRoots programs will put you back into harmony with your experience in the world. This state and practice of high harmony is called ROOTLAEV.

Spirit of ROOTLAEV

Essentially all religion and the majority of humanist philosophies focus on an evolutionary goal — a heaven, nirvana, the highest human achievement. There is a pervasive sentiment, since time immemorial, in essentially every one of our founding societal beliefs, that the drive towards that end goal is sacred to our nature: it is the essence of all happiness as is our naturally inclination to strive towards it. Even Darwin's theory of evolution found, perplexingly, that nature itself prefers the beautiful (most people misunderstand this, but Darwin proved we are indeed evolving to some 'better', more beautiful, state). They all have different names for it, but the ‘end goals’ are theoretically exactly the same: true harmony & alignment which causes pure ease, joy & comfort.

Heaven is supposed to be found on earth. “As above, so below” — that’s what that line means. Enlightenment is sensing, being, living through inner & outer clarity. It's pure human nature. Practicing the state of ROOTLAEV is enlightenment. But you don't need to be unwavering to "attain" it. You can have it lose it, get it back, and live with in it here, now, anytime.

ROOTLAEV is the practice of and the state of being in the harmony of all end goals. Think of it like playing an instrument — being in harmony is an action but it’s also a state — and practicing makes you better and better at it. It’s the way and it’s also the outcome. The pure Truth herein is depicted in our reverence for sentiments like ‘the journey is the destination’. The practice of ROOTLAEV aligns us with our true nature. In this, our purpose unfolds effortlessly and we may live our ideal selves and lives simply because we are, in the state of ROOTLAEV, living through our pure nature.


Science of ROOTLAEV

The practice of ROOTLAEV is where “enlightenment” meets what positive psychologists call “flow”. Flow is a state and a practice of being fully immersed in an activity or experience, engaging with it fully, and adding to it with a purposed and acute sense of being a beneficial contributor through your actions/reactions. It is harmony, simply stated. Psychology can observe it, and the immense benefits which come with it, but it cannot prescribe it. However, the likeness of flow to many theories of discipline in eastern spiritualism is well documented in the academic literature. Scientific observation of which practices induce flow and which act to prolong it to a way of being (living in flow) is where ROOTLAEV was born.

There are many different names for flow, but they all coincide with what research has deemed to be a highly correlative variable in overall happiness and success. High performance is much of the time directly attributed to this psychological state. For musicians, “getting in the groove” of the music is necessary for great composition. Athletes and business people often use the terms “getting in the zone” for the highly creative and productive state scientists call flow. Martial artists have a plethora of names for being absorbed into full experiential action of the moment. Artists from every discipline recall being a channel for their creativity, claiming they don’t “do” it, it “flows” through them. High performance is a correlate of flow. So is happiness, fulfillment, joy.

Flow is practicing ROOTLAEV. But ROOTLAEV is more than just practicing flow. Flow is enjoyment (engagement/purposeful), not pleasure (comfort/ease), ROOTLAEV is both.

Why is ROOTLAEV Different from Enlightenment & Flow?

“Flow” requires great knowledge and experience in the activity at hand to enjoy it (being adept & practiced at the task is a prerequisite), “enlightenment” requires an emptying of knowledge (a return to our pure nature). Yet flow is also necessarily about growth and striving (simply reenacting what you are already good at doesn’t produce flow) and enlightenment requires great wisdom and discipline to achieve (a baby is not enlightened because she is in her pure nature).ROOTLAEV is the practice of bringing flow to any moment, harmonizing innocence with experience (purity with wisdom).

Both flow and enlightenment also involve a detachment with Self in either state. ROOTLAEV is the first holistic practice incorporating your Self (with your personality, flaws and goals) with your inner perfection, and growing — together — towards your highest potential.

ROOTLAEV pairs the conflicting strengths of carefree bliss (enlightenment) with the capacity to overcome immense challenges (flow); harmonizes the senses of joy, enlivened being, gratitude and belonging found in both; then adds the freedom of being able to evoke it anytime. All of this power is directed first towards awareness of personal purpose, so all of these efforts continuously move towards the most holistic and sustainable satisfaction for you in your life. ROOTLAEV gives practitioners (ROOTLI) the capacity to be in a state of enlightenment and employ the force of flow at will after identifying what path leads towards their highest fulfilment humanly possible.

ROOTLAEV is sublime.  It both incorporates and transcends all we know about achievement.


How Does ROOTLAEV Work?

The scholarly debate on fate versus freewill comes to this conclusion: you are essentially already programmed by age 7 (the unconscious mind pretty much runs the ‘you’ show), what happens after that is sort of like a snowball effect (the outcome is sort of determined— fate), but you can make small changes to your trajectory (like a snowball rolling downhill) every single moment — freewill.

Choosing ROOTLAEV aligns our self, our challenges, and our highest potential (pure self) with the experiences of each moment. Each moment we choose ROOTLAEV, we are able to heal unconscious programming obstructing our best selves, we have the opportunity to reprogram deep limiting beliefs creating our realities, and harmonize each part of us with our highest potential and pure nature.

Consider this affect overtime: the effect we have on the snowball is barely noticeable at first, and every moment we decide to practice ROOTLAEV we nudge it a small way in our favour. Over time though, just like that snowball, our life path can be dramatically changed and our destination staggeringly altered. The guiding principle of your highest potential means ROOTLAEV is the only practice which aligns your path with your dreams effortlessly.

Many of the greatest feats of human accomplishment are reported to have been “effortless” to the humans responsible at the time. Sometimes inexplicably. This was and is ROOTLAEV. It’s a natural law of nature. And now we have the wisdom and practices to employ it.



Your Life is Like a Plane in Flight

Think of a plane taking off: a minor adjustment in direction taking off can dramatically alter the path and ultimate destination. Now imagine you are a plane, and you are able to consistently alter your trajectory— how quickly can you arrive wherever you want to be? Each moment is an opportunity to bring awareness to your trajectory, and practicing ROOTLAEV puts your flight path in line with your dreams. Because your dreams are your destiny. And ROOTLAEV is just the practice of being the real you.

Every moment with ROOTLAEV is an opportunity. You have a moment every moment of every day! The deeper your commitment in those moments, the bigger the impact you can make on your direction.

The first times practicing will be the hardest (imagine attempting to divert a snowball in full motion, even just a little bit), but it gets way, way, easier (imagine then diverting that snowball a little more & a little more) to the point where motion actually becomes your friend. In time you will be able to change your trajectory any moment you please.


Major Takeaways

  • Every time you choose awareness, you change your trajectory.
  • Choosing ROOTLAEV aligns you with your highest potential (your dreams) — your destiny.
  • ROOTLAEV is a practice of harmony that is nothing short of heaven: the most fulfilling joy to cultivate.
  • Even the hardest aspects (facing unhealed traumas or poorly programmed defences) of practicing ROOTLAEV are easier to overcome than remaining with those aspects intact.
