Rituals are an important part of human life, steeped in beauty and significance. They provide a sense of order and structure in an otherwise crazy world, they promote feelings of safety and that wholesome feeling of groundedness. Even just reading these quotes about rituals, ahhh, you just feel better!
Rituals give us a method to action our beliefs, thoughts, and values. They help us step towards our dreams.
They foster a sense of continuity, linking the past, to the present, and then onto the future.
Rituals are also carriers of culture, tradition, and wisdom, they bring communities together and strengthen connections.
They are expressions of our us, our humanness, they signify our deepest desires and aspirations, joys and also the sorrows, wins and losses. As the famous author Mitch Albom once said, “Rituals are the formulas by which harmony is restored.”
Perhaps the most profound aspect of rituals is their power to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. They are about awakening to the magic and wonder that lies within the most mundane moments.
