Superstition = surviving belief. The very concept of life experience is a superstition. The experience is self formed, but the event is objective. You cannot directly perceive any event. You can only experience it. The tendency your mind has of automatically identifying something in your environment is actually superstition. It’s a construct that exists really only in your mind.
For every experience your mind comes up with a response. It’s actually more functional to accept these responses. So, even if the symbolism is all wrong, and your paradigm has holes in it, if your tradition seems to have blank spots, that’s all right. Embrace it.

“Superstition brings the gods into even the smallest matters” Titus Livy
“There is superstition in avoiding superstitions” Francis Bacon, Sr. (English Lawyer and Philosopher. 1561-1626)
