What Is The Origin For The Word, ZOE?

Posted On: October 31, 2015

Zoe is a slang word in Crèole meaning, bone. And for the record, Haitian is not a language.

It also implies being Haitian to the bone.

Or it could mean, eating your chicken down to the bone. Lol. I’m just kidding.

But anyways, I got a few emails asking if only Haitians can be “zoes” and how can a person be a “zoe?”

Hmmm.. Let’s go back and review the origin of the word “zoe.” It’s a three letter word but it has some powerful meaning behind it.

Zoe is a Greek word and it is used in the Greek Bible. The word “zoe” in Greek means, life. But not like life being alive or living. In Greek terminology the word zoe means, “the God kind of life,” referring to “the absolute fullness of lifeand “life in abundance.” Basically, being prosperous in life on all levels.

The Greeks and the Haitians had a diplomatic unity and they were allies. I don’t know if the Haitians adapted the word zoe from the Greeks, but it is a possibility. Because of the history of the relationship between the Greeks and Haitians.

So, can anybody be a zoe? Hmmm..

If you take the origin of the Greek meaning of the word and Crèole slang meaning; it would define, “being prosperous to the bone.”

In other words.. “Being bless to the bone!”

The Depth Of Substance

Posted On: October 21, 2015

Can I look into the windows of your soul and find the kind of mysteries that will leave me enthralled and mesmerized in you. If I was to enter through the window, would I discover the treasures of your soul that no pirates will ever find.

If I were to journey into your mind, what would I discover and learn from you. And if I sailed into the bloodstreams of your heart, would I discover the kind of gold only the universe creates and would I discover love, the kind that reveals the meaning to it all.

The depth of one's soul is like an iceberg, the kind of mountain you can't see.
