be it buying flowers, lighting incense, burning candles or the daily ritual of making a cup of tea - all of these practices bring us back to ourselves.
I find that the simpler the ritual the more I am likely to practice it. Rituals allow my busy brain to focus for a moment; these habitual actions bring me into the 'now'. Perhaps the need to empty my environment of many things right now is because when the space around me is sparse, then, the power of the ritual is amplified.
