It is perhaps timely to write about this given what is currently happening in England. Over the course of the next few weeks perhaps culminating in a coronation there will be a televised display of ceremonial order or magic. The “wands” and symbols of state will be on show and the choreography will be precise and rehearsed. The organisation will be complex yet impeccable.
These events strike awe and claim obedience from subjects. The pageantry will be fabulous and impressive. The defender of the faith will be laid to rest. In the past monarchs sought to trace their lineage all the way back and there was something of the divine right.
When someone is knighted, they are initiated into a brotherhood using ceremonial order or magic. The rod of initiation is the monarch’s perhaps bejewelled sword.
The robes of ceremonial order of the priests and the officials of royalty will be on show. The “wizards” will lead the rites of funeral. There will be procession along the streets and in the great edifices of worship. The ceremonial carriages will be bedecked.
It will have a profound effect on the population with many wanting to take part in person. They are already camping out.
Yup we are in for a treat of Ray 7, Ceremonial Order or Magic.
