We can go to an astrologer, a tarot reader or any other psychic to read our charts. But they also make us dependent upon them. Rituals shift our attention outside, looking for outside support to bring us luck and evade ill-luck. Even going to the temple, church or any other place of worship is looking outside for peace within. Herein lies the irony!
We want peace within but we look outside. If we ‘want’ something within, how can others give us or how can we find it outside? Our spiritual journey starts and is resumed only when we start looking within, first. It starts from inside out. Now what do we have to look within? Only increasing moments of gratitude and faith. Only experiences of unconditional love, kindness, calm and joy!
