A cup of coffee or a funeral rite. It’s important for you to have rituals. Rituals simply help us stay connected to the infinite. Whether we use special words or gestures, whether we comb hair like the Spartans did before battle, whether it is done communally or in solitude, it comes down to performing some kind of structure that lets us feel connected to the universe. Rituals done in the form of meditation daily can reduce our anxiety and help us focus. Rituals are predictable, structured parts of everyday life. Rituals may be sacred or secular. Rituals might pull people together or apart. Rituals can help build connections, give a group its own sense of personality, and reinforces the group’s values. When a group loses a member, the ritual can bring them deeper together. One of the most incredible sights to behold is the most sacred of the U.S Army’s changing of the guard ritual at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Rituals are a form of structure that make life flow more easily.
