Noticing and awe, recognizing things that are greater than us, cosmic appreciation, aka sources of happiness and meaning that aren't the earthly concerns of job + family, are shame-inspiring? need a ritual in order to experience them?:
Rituals "open up a space in which to host thought that I would otherwise find silly or ridiculous: a voiceless awe at the passing of time. The way everything stays the same. The way those things are bigger than I am, and more than I can hold."
It is no coincidence that the word "religion" comes from relegare, to focus the attention. All religious praxis is an exercise of attention. The temple is a place of deep attention. According to Malenbrache, attention is the soul's natural prayer.
(...) The repetitions make the attention stabilize and deepen. Repetition is the essential feature of rituals. It is distinguished from the routine by its ability to generate intensity.
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?
