Rituals help to reinforce a spiritual practice by using heightened concentration, special settings, and symbolic objects. This is especially true for the practice of mystery. The Christian sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion, for example, are based on a belief in a mysterious activity of God moving through the ritual toward the individual and the community. Create a simple ritual in which you yield to “unknowing” and welcome the Mystery of God.
