I'm going to mainly focus on the origin of register as a verb. Quite interesting to see that it traces back to mean "to bear" from the Latin word gerere . If you've read a few of our older posts, you'll remember that "to bear" is also an allegorical reference to Moors/Mooring. Let's take a deeper look.
From Proto-Italic: *gezō. According to De Vaan, from a post-Proto-Indo-European: *h₂ǵ-es-, from the Proto-Indo-European root *h₂eǵ-
The root "*h₂eǵ-" traces back to mean "to drive". Interesting. Let's all remember that we are not our bodies and that our bodies are vessels/vehicles for our spirits and souls on this physical plane. If everything is as above, so below and as within as without, that would mean if we register ourselves on the inside (meaning we get back to nature, remember who we are, take responsibility for our spiritual development and reconnect with The Most Highs that dwell within and earn our ELs back), we must also register ourselves on the outside (in the physical) aka taking ownership of all the ties, contracts and relationships we've accumulated over the years. In other words, governing ourselves accordingly.
I like to view life as operating in commerce on business trip with three tiers. Doing our best to provide the best products (fruits); mind, body and soul. There are more parallels and connections to tie into, but somethings are meant to stay private.
