The Word Soul/Sole in English.

I have always wondered about these two words in English. Both the highest part of our body, the soul, the part that goes to heaven, and the lowest part of our body, the very bottom of our feet have exactly the same word. How could this be? ls it some sort of joke? Well my thought today is that they are the same word because they are both portals. The soul is the contact or doorway to the above, absorbing sunlight and inspiration while the sole, lets us absorb the earth's sustaining energy and keeps us grounded and intouch. Yes, being barefoot [where possible] is of great benefit to those who love and wish to care for our sacred planet.

Each word as a different origin!

According to the Collins Dictionary:

Sole History Latin solea sandal

Soul History Old English sawol (the a should have an accent)

Well, I still prefer my explanation. To me, it seems that words change for a variety of reasons and could it be that these two words of apparent different derivations have come to mean the two great portals of the human body? I like the idea. Modern people wearing their shoes are happy and unfeelingly to destroy the planet for the dubious gain of money and economic growth. The only time they go without shoes is in their high rise apartments so removed from the rude surface of our Earth.

I live in the city lots of concrete... but recently I walked in the grass... again... even WITH shoes on it is an entirely different thing than all the concrete I've grown used to in later life...

as far as sole/soul, I was told our 'physical' body is at the lowest part of our 'etheric' body... so the body as we know it is like a shoe for our beingness. Hence it is our 'sole/soul'.
