There is something about this that appeals to me. The carrying out of an act or series of acts in a very strict manner for no other apparent reason than to do so in a manner that shows honour, respect and significance to the person receiving.
Perhaps it is something hanging on from my Roman-Catholic upbringing (I used to be an altar boy) which leads me to want to participate in these formulaic and ceremonial actions as a compliment of the more relaxed and simple and personal practices I carry out.
I think that perhaps the matter deserves more thought; who should such a practice by directed at and what should its constituents be? I imagine that something disciplined and ceremonial carried regularly will become second nature allowing the mind to wander as the body does what it needs; perhaps it can become a very meditative process.
