Ritualistic practices are revered in ancient and eastern cultures. If you have been through Asia you have most likely witnessed offering being made to the divine. Woven baskets filled with gifts, incense and rice littered the streets or placed in front of statues. But how often do we take the time out of our western lives to honour something outside of ourselves? We are not specifically talking about religion yet the simple act of showing gratitude and reverence for the life we live, for the blessings present in our everyday, for the good and loving people around us.
As little as 2 minutes of devotion or honouring a day can have a profound effect on our mental and emotional states of being. It also allows us to feel like we belong to something greater, more intricate and profound then the perpetual cycle of our individual lives. We would love to hear about your ritualistic practices. What do you do to connect and show reverence to something outside of yourself?
