Today's one word prompt is:
What feelings does this word evoke? What sorts of memories does it recall? Which of your senses start to tingle? How would you represent what this word means to you?
Sacred, to me means something that is very important. It can be a space, an object, a person etc. Check out Defining your sacred space for ideas on how to define what your sacred spot is in your home.
Sacred items to me, are those things i hold on to and are very sentimental, for example the photos of my brother who passed away in 2007. Those few photos are important to me, because its all I have to remember him by.
Sacred can mean we hold things on a pedestal,. But it doesn;t always equate to being a negative effect. Sometimes it just means we strive to greatness.
Something being sacred shouldn't hold us back nor hold us down in any way.
“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
― Gautama Buddha
I just came across this article (why being scared means you are fully alive) it hasn't got much to do with the word prompt but its a great read.
