Enhancing or Killing Intimacy

This quote is taken from the book I’m currently reading:

“Routines. Rituals, Customs. Traditions. They can be used to enhance or to kill intimacy. Over time, intentional thoughtfulness can be lost since the routines do all the thinking for us. We are left with something that looks good on the outside, but is filled with nothing but the bones of a long-dead relationship…

“We must remember that the enemy is not tradition itself, but the complete dependence upon tradition and routine to the point where we disengage from thoughtful, purposeful, intentional intimacy.”

The End of Religion by Bruxy Cavey – pp. 54-55
