Metaphysical meaning of Myra (mbd)
Myra, my'-rå (Gk. fr. Heb.)--flowing; dripping; weeping; bitterness; grief; sadness; sorrow; ointments; unguents; bitters.
A city of Lycia, in Asia Minor. The boat in which Paul was being taken to Rome stopped at this place (Acts 27:5).
Meta. Unrestrained emotion. Ointments, one definition of Myra, suggests something of a healing nature, but the other definitions, weeping, dripping, flowing, bitterness, grief, sorrow, all denote the emotional nature's expressing in a dissipating, destructive way. The emotions, expressing on the material plane, are usually of a destructive nature, though when lifted up and established in Truth, and directed by the I AM, or Christ mind of true love and wisdom, they become a power for good.
