Sacred. Soul. Sacrum.
My favorite writing tool is visualthesaurus.com; just give it a try and you'll know why!
On this particular Monday I was doing a study that was focused on Heart and Soul by Priscilla Shirer. Her definition of Soul=allows you to relate to yourself; it includes four very valuable components.
- Mind (your thoughts)
- Will (your ambition)
- Emotion (your feelings)
- Conscience (your moral compass
If the heart is the centerpiece of the soul, it's interesting to think about what the Greeks thought about the location of the soul.
SACRED = O My Soul Word of the Day: from visualthesaurus.com
The resemblance to sacred in this word for the bone that connects the spine to the pelvis is not accidental: it was believed by certain Greeks with naming rights that the soul resided in this spot: they called the bone hieron osteon. It became os sacrum in Latin, a compound from which we've dropped the first part.
So if we get to the bones of the issue, what's sacred to you?
