      yes, the function of ritual is supposedly to aid in awakening and be a transitional aspect, marking the transition from one state to another, of awareness. When we dont get the message it implies ritually, we are merely faking it for whatever reasons...to be included, to not be left out, to let others think we are what we are not..it comes back to haunt eventually.
      it is a cleansing,but not of sins etc, of old thought, or is supposed to be.
