Ritual & The Inner World

We are beginning to learn that we have impoverished ourselves by giving up what our tribal ancestors had as part of their daily spiritual lives… Ritual is a means of approaching the inner world that the human race evolved early in its history… It goes back to the earliest dawn of time among our prehistoric ancestors… Modern people who are deprived of meaningful ritual feel a chronic sense of emptiness.

One thought on “Ritual & The Inner World

  1. Christmas much of my life has been empty because of its commercial aspect. To make it meaningful I simplify, simplify, simplify. Religious studying, mediation, spending time with a friend—these are the things that matter.
