Falling down the stairs can be a good start. It's a new perspective, the stairs coming up to meet your face rather than your feet, your head crashing against a radiator you hadn't really noticed before. As if you needed someone to shake you, to put trauma in slow motion so you could notice it.

When Hephaestus hit Zeus over the head with an axe, his daughter Athena jumped out fully grown and clad in armor. Don't you ever wonder why we need to suffer for wisdom? I'm not afraid to walk down the street bleeding and crying alone, or of doctors, or of bees. Everything can be yours if you can open your eyes at the bottom of the stairs.
