I had one once, long ago, sipping champagne in a field of poppies. I’m not so sure now, now that I’m back home washing the dogs and feeding the dog and cooking Hamburger Helper. But if I know anything – and Lord knows I don’t – I’m quite sure God whispered in my ear that day. And I listened and died, and went home.

One is God.
We all are son/daughter of him.
He is our master and we all are his player.
God send us to play and enjoy big on his planet to maintain peace world wide and keep his place clean from heart and planet both.

I’m realizing now that this isn’t over, and that makes me less than happy. I wanted it to be done. To be finished. To step away from the past and look into the future, the way I’ve been trying to do. The Here-and-Now doesn’t like me as much as it used to.
I’m trying to be something else again. This is like one huge, whole world of dress up and let’s make believe. I want something that I can’t get, right now.
To be invisible. To just…vanish. Stop following me, goddammit. I’m not what you’re afraid of.

Have you ever sat there with no distractions, no background noise, and questioned your entire life, wondered if the world would have been better off if you’d have never been born?
I hope not.

You know what i don’t even know what is this word because my english vocab isn’t that good. But anyway, is this a word? Or the name of an elephant? A nanny elephant? Tiny nanny elephant? Geez, i must be dreaming…. Okay.

An epiphay is a realisation, a lightbulb going ping over your head. I’ve had many epiphanies oer the years but none that immediately leap to mind right now, due to the pressure of time. I suppose you could say I had an epiphany to search out word prompts for writing.

when one has an epiphany everything changes. One feels like they can just soar over all there dreams, zoom right by them, making each one come true. The realization that one comes to can allow them to feel free, and true.

He suddenly had an epiphany.
Taking the puppy by the scruff of its neck, he carried it outside, put it down on the grass, and waited.
Sure enough, the puppy stood still for a few seconds, then began to shake intensely, and within seconds it had transformed into a chimera.

I need an epiphany. I need to break out of this routine, she said, fidgeting with a cigarette in hand. Her companion remained silent. I need to just have one good idea for a change- and then everything will be better. With a gasp, her companion fell to the floor as a trickle of crimson blood escaped his mouth.

I had an epiphany the other day. Epiphanies have gotten me through my most important choices. They say that when you have a big decision to make you should flip a coin, because in the moment that it’s in the air you suddenly know what you’re hoping for. I would love to be able to go to school and succeed without having to worry about the cost, but that isn’t possible.

this is interesting
ephiphany seems to be the only word this wants to give me
so, what if i choose to ignore it
along with almost every grammar rule in the english language
that was a question

Last night I had an amazing revelation; an epiphany. That even though I am in a seemingly safe place, I am not protected. I can be harmed at any given time. There could be a fire, a bomb, or a crazy madman with a gun.

sometimes I have a brainstorm and I write for hours. It’s not instantaneous because writing is hard but it’s awesome. I never really get the whole OH I GET IT NOW thing cause that rarely happens. Over time i learn and become good at things. Sometimes I see something I haven’t seen in a while and realize I now know what it was talking about but that’s because shit has happened since I last saw it.

One defining moment in a series of bland, racing thoughts, bringing light and texture to their bare faces. Elation and accomplishment. A triumph.

to tell you the truth i dont know what this means
By amber on 11.02.2011
I have no idea what this word means. I know Greek and Latin though, so I should know what it means. But I don’t. Wait. I’ve got it. I’ve had an epiphany. it means to discover, to realize, to think of spontaneously. To solve the problem. Greek and Latin are useful after all I suppose.

Epiphany is a Christian holiday to celebrate when the Magi visited Jesus. It is also a revelation of something. Like in DH Part 1, Hermione had an epiphany while cutting Harry’s hair. She said, “Oh my gosh! Why didn’t I think of that before?”

Ha ha, did you know James Joyce coined the word epiphany in the context that we use today? His character Stephen Daedalus has epiphanies like his life depends on it. He’s also an artist and a teenage boy (Stephen, not Joyce) which makes him appear just a little ridiculous. I loved Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, I think everyone should read it. Stephan’s delusional, quasi-religious, high-art philosophies are hilarious. Reminded me of myself on the days when I think I’m brilliant and someone has to remind me that I’m ridiculous.

Wow something came over me. A new understanding. A light at the end of the tunnel. I get it. I hope others get it. All this makes sense now.

He realised he had just had an epiphany. Interestingly enough, it lead to this immediate conclusion: his life thus far had been wasted.
By Hee on 11.02.2011
ephiphany is when you wake up and you just know what you need to do. It’s a clear sense of purpose and a clear goal.
By amanda.dorosh on 11.02.2011
i don’t know what that word means.
