contemplating ritual

been thinking about rituals and ceremonies lately and curious why i feel awkward with them. wondering why we need choreographed moments to make meaning and memories. by engaging in ritual, are we running the risk of limiting spontaneity and imagination and individuality during important times in our lives? or are we merely trying to create these moments by following scripts and using props? does this make us mere performers in our own lives?
