Rituals – Part Three
Opening the door is a ritual. Shaking hands is a ritual. Taking your vitamins can be a ritual. A family dinner can be a ritual. Showering is a ritual. Counting your blessings is a ritual. Saying “thank you” is a ritual. What makes all of these a ritual is the intention in your action.
There are many kinds of rituals. Rituals serve and help you move from working for tomorrow to engaging with where you are now. Rituals help you transition from climbing the mountain to recognizing the mountain is inside you. You engage in a ritual to bring yourself into the presence of what it is you want to be with.
