Collective Worship

Author: Paulo Coelho

The sun is shining and there is light everywhere. As you know the sun was one of the main objects of adoration in humankind – which means that we have to have collective rituals.

That’s I think religion can play a very important role since people are sharing the same respect for the same mysteries. Yet, spiritually, you can’t transfer your path to someone else.

So, I would like to know: Are you engaged in some kind of collective worship?

I’m not talking about religion: I’m actually talking about dance, sports, basically everything that we can do together and that at the end of the day we feel we are part of the same movement. So I would like to hear your opinion on that and hear of your collective worships – outside of religion if possible.
