Become aware of your rituals
Which are your rituals? Are you aware of your rituals? Have you lost your rituals? What is a ritual for you?
Do a review of your "typical day" and see if you find any ritual that you didn't even realize you always do, like drink a glass of water every morning, meditate, look out the window, etc.
Do a “typical year” review: what holidays do you celebrate each year? What meetings do you organize each year? Christmas, Birthday, Passover, Halloween, Valentine? What do these rituals bring you? Why do they make sense to you? What happens if you don't carry them out?
Do a review of your "work" process, do you do something special when you start a project? When do you finish it? What do you do when you get an idea? What is the "natural process" of your ideas? When was the last time you felt in sync with the time and the project?
Everyone behaves badly sometimes, and the reasons are compellingly almost-fathomable. Is Ames checked out because he's dissociated out of his fucking mind and needs to transition again, or just because there is little sympathy or emotional support for the trauma he's experienced? Is Reese unable to engage earnestly with the people closest to her because of transphobia and trauma, or because she refuses to recognize that she is also capable of inflicting emotional harm on people she loves? Is Katrina an opportunist seeking relief from her divorce in the promise of queer parenting, or a woman whose options in intimacy have been curtailed for so long that she finds it hard to admit what she really wants?
I gave up facts entirely in order to have an empty mind for inspiration to come into. If your mind is full of garbage, if an inspiration comes you wouldn’t recognize it anyway. We have to practice a quiet, empty mind.
