I am looking for a word (or expression/phrase), existing if possible or coined-for-the-purpose neologism if not, that represents the all-inclusive superset of a variety of related concepts and pursuits pertaining to the mind, heart, spirit, intentions, etc. Broadly, this is essentially anything that arises out of the functioning of your mind, choices, nervous system, and some things that relate closely but some people believe are metaphysical (like spiritual experiences, religious inspiration, contemplative practices).
Example usage sentence:
In his explorations of ____________________, he explored the best ways to control the mind heart and spirit, and to develop himself using all of the tools available including meditative practices, spiritual guidance, cognitive training, emotional clarity, motivational training, and perseverance.
It is odd to me that such a superset word does not present itself to bind these related ideas together and create a broader field of endeavor/thought.
In particular, looking for a word/expression that brings together concepts that are related but are typically held at odds in English usage: mind, heart/feeling, spirit.
There are a large variety of words that correspond to various more-limited aspects of what we feel, think, do, choose, and metaphysical/spiritual manifestations. The existing words all appear to be too limited.
If one was studying or participating in any of the following loosely-related things, they would all fall under this superset category/expression/word.
The correct category of endeavor/study, and the word naming it, should include the following loosely-related ideas/disciplines/pursuits/words:
heart (in the romantic/emotional/poetic sense)
somewhat-related spiritual-or-religious-based concepts believed to control or interact with or control the above, such as:
There is, it seems to me, a coherent sense to the idea that people have related interests that span this breadth of topics. These topics can easily flow from one to the next and are often thought to have causal relationships that span them.
Here is a sentence meant to show that many of these concepts/words are often used together within a shared category / within shared thoughts and ideas, and are therefore related within a superset category:
"Your karma causes you to make choices based on your experiences using free will that will determine your destiny, but while your eternal spirit knows all, contains all and is interconnected with all, your mind and psychology only perceive your limited sensory experiences and actions..."
Also, one could make the argument (and others would argue against you) that all of these arise from the functioning of the brain/nervous system so that they are all "brain-derived".
Looking for a single word / phrase / expression / single category which contains all of this. Some of the expressions above sort-of accomplish the goal of expressing a superset idea, but the don't do it comfortably or elegantly. For example, one might suggest that psychology, interpreted broadly, includes all of these concepts, but one would be fairly unlikely to find a psychology book talking about the soul, and perhaps not about "the heart" or free will.
Litmus test for finding or coining the right word: would the study, practice, development or pursuit of all (or most) of the words above be included within the superset category named by this word, and fall logically under its name?
Litmus test #2: this word should not contain "everything". It should be more or less limited to the related concepts above, excluding other concepts. Words that are too broad, because they include many things beyond the intended set (particularly, they contain all of matter and physical existence and laws, and they are therefore too general to point to the idea/category that is being sought/identified): universe, Brahman, nature, god, science, Source, One, Spirit, life.
Per StackExchange, here are some detailed answers to their recommended questions:
Does the question describe exactly in what context you want to use a single word? The context here would be broad. See example usage sentence above.
Does the question specify the criteria by which the suggested word will be accepted? (How will you choose the best word? What is "best"?) The "best" word/expression will be the one that most naturally connotes/includes the various ideas above. If it fits well into the above example usage/sentence, it's probably a winner.
Does the question list which words you didn't like, and why they aren't suitable? I include a long list of candidate words above. I didn't find them suitable as they are all, individually, too narrow and not inclusive of the whole (see discussion of the word psychology above).
Does the question show that you searched for a suitable word before asking the question? Sure how so...
Thank you for your help with this interesting challenge.
