Binding Our Lives through Symbol
Through our relationship to symbols we make something coherent of our lives . . . we act to accept, affirm, release, bind ourselves to, or alter a particular reality through our symbolic interaction with it. The frame or context in which we do these things is a ritual. Older than reason, ritual helps human beings grasp and traverse life's passages . . . at a level that reaches beneath the rational mind's ability to explain them."
