Practicing Rituals - Body, Speech and Thought

If we’re to perform ritual as if it’s true then we will need to do it wholeheartedly, which is to say, with body, speech and thought. 

When the whole self is engaged in activity, we participate selflessly, because no part of us is left out from the activity. 

Body, speech and mind are ambivalent agents. They are gateways to both enlightened and deluded activity.

To put things simply, we could say that the role of the body, is to bring the hands together or to adopt the posture of meditation; understood as speech it is remain silent; and understood as thought, it is to concentrate.
