Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration. A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written. Anyone who understands can read it. One rite often contains more than a hundred books. (Gurdjieff)

I latched on to ritual very early in life – and was fascinated as much by esoteric magic as by liturgy.

In recent times, my clean-out project has required me to remove from my hallway many of its ceremonial artefacts. But, in essence, my daily rituals are pretty much – as Gurdjieff suggests – performed unaltered.

I’ve been sensing that blog-keeping is becoming a new, essential part of my daily ritual.

PS: The clearing of ceremonial artefacts from my hallway is temporary – allowing clear access between the storage closet and the front door (and the garbage chute).
