I'd propose that to the extent that anything in your life is more sacred "to you" than is fundamentally true -- actually sacred -- represents ego and attachment; not actually sacred, more accurately "an idol."

But there are aspects of our existence which are truly sacred; our relationship with our children, for example. Perhaps, all of our relationships, in general.

Some principles might also be seen as sacred; "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness," for example. "Self-evident truths endowed by our Creator" can reasonably be considered sacred.

For best effect, align what you hold as sacred with what is *actually* sacred.
