"You don't do a ritual just for the sake of doing a ritual. Every ritual must have a very specific purpose, a clearly stated intention. It must have something to resolve...What is a ritual? A ritual is a ceremony in which we call in spirit to come and be the driver, the overseer of our activities. The elements of ritual allow us to connect with the self, the community, and the natural forces around us. In ritual we call in spirit to show us obstacles that we cannot see because of the limitations of human beings. Rituals help us to remove blocks standing between us and our true spirit and other spirits." ~~Sobonfu Some, from The Spirit of Intimacy.
I ponder a radical ritual for our country. What would such a ritual look like? Or perhaps a ritual for all the people making decisions for our country, and for all the citizens living out those decisions. I open to the teachings of our wisdom keepers. I direct my ray of light at them that others might do likewise. In this action, I expand my own vision. In this action, I experience hope.
