High Ritual and Reorientation

In a recent contemplative practice, we explored the process of High Ritual, both from the perspective of one guided to love and connection and my own—a depth of hopelessness. It was what one might call a "bad trip," except it wasn't bad at all.

Part of the practice of seeking the ritual is to embrace the lack of control and expectation of the journey. An ideal to be sought is to experience full immersion in the ritual and in the sober daily direction. What is always a trial leaves us wiser, even if that wisdom takes time to receive.

While the high-dose experience is indescribable, the integration process can be summarized as a choice within a moment. We embrace the single truth of change through our capacity to direct it.

The ritual is never necessary for aligning the observable infinities but is often a great reminder of how to approach it with courage and enthusiasm.
