my practice of knowledge is almost ceremonial

When we attend to experience, we can say that there are two sides of it. The personal, inspirational side that is difficult to describe, and the other that is shared and defined over time through observation, memory and oral traditions. We embody it through our behavior and customs. What most people seem to have in common is this first part as a groundness of being, or primary source of inspiration which also contains a response to our personal experiences by maintaining an awareness to itself by its own constant renewal through time. And just by observing that, we really almost get like a ceremonial practice of personal knowledge from a collective source.
