Religions, for millenniums, have found rituals to be a vital part of their existence. According to Dictionary.com, rituals are an established or prescribed procedure or ceremony for a religious or other rites. Jesus asked us to not prescribe to rituals and yet the all the world religions dictate rites and services. When all the world finds God’s grace to be their only ritual, we shall find the answer to our earthly treasure. As we are made in God’s image and likeness, practicing love toward every life on the planet is the only practical ritual.
We should practice the ritual of love with each other. We should practice the ritual of love with all living things on our planet. We should practice the ritual of love with our environment. We should practice the ritual of love toward God with every breath we take. I have been practicing constant, conscious contact with God. Although I have come up short of the love I am capable of, I just realize my human condition and return to the task at hand. Love is the ritual of discipline.
The gold, statues, intricate building, ceremonies and rites do not impress God. All God wants is our constant love and admiration. These rituals are performed around the world in almost every religion from the oldest to the youngest, from the richest to the poorest, from every corner of the planet. Rituals are a superstitious rite and as long as society continues to believe they are pleasing God with this waste of time the world will have to find the answer to its problems on its own. If you want to find a ritual that works for you remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
