Rite of Passage #1 "The Bath". Monday October 13, 2014

Sometimes we just need to change.

To achieve this well, it helps to have a "Rite of Passage".

Many tribes do this with their children when they come of age.

We do it when we have a Wedding Service or a big birthday celebration.

But I can't afford to wait for a birthday or a wedding.

I need to change on a daily basis.

That's why I'm a fan of small rites of passage.
One of my favourite is bath-time.

I go into the waters one person, and come out another.
I go in (relatively) smelly, and come out smelling of roses!
I plunge beneath the waters (relatively) dirty, and rise up cleansed.
I sink in exhausted, I spring forth regenerated...ish.
No wonder some of the World's Religions like the idea of ritual washing.

But I wonder, could I go into my bath low in spirit, and emerge refreshed, ready to face the World and myself renewed?

Well... I just tried it...it worked.

Kindest Regards.
