Ritual and Non-Ritual

In this moment we find ourselves at the junction of descending ritual in the form of tradition and the arising of the inspiration of the life of this moment. If we have only the former there is fundamentalism and rigidity. With only ascending ritual if the moment there is chaos. If we remain in the tension of these two poles the "transcendent third" or the ritual that enlivens emerges - Robert Beatty
