Rites

C166923 mIt dawned on me that there are traditions worth holding on to and those that would be useful to outgrow. How do you tell the difference?

Answer the question with this question: Is a tradition holding back your growth?

There are rites of passage and rites we need to get passed. Getting stuck in the “right” way of doing things can lead to a life of resisting rather than one of living.

It’s worth recognizing that a tradition is a rite that may not be right for you.

Do you always vote a straight ticket? – not one with gays on the ballot 😉

Do you have to date or marry someone of your Faith? Race? Ethnic Background? Culture?

Do you worship the “one true” God?

It’s difficult to grow when you exclude so many options.

Growth is an uncomfortable passage that leads to a more comfortable existence because so many things no longer require your resistance.

It takes energy to resist an evolving world and the outcome is always the same; you’re left behind looking for someone to blame.

A final thought on “should, must and ought”: You don’t have to give up your principles; just examine them and find out if they’re really yours, or just an inherited rite that may be dead wrong.

All the best,

John
