Rituals and traditions

Facing death, I don’t think any form of rationality can help to soothe things. Thoughts about god(s) and faith arise to help us with that unknown to make sense and meaning of them, to make that unmanageable more bearable. Managing that unknown then becomes the centerpiece of our lives, since we don’t know when death might take us.
