I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤

So you probably know the meaning of epiphany:
: a usually sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something
(2): an intuitive grasp of reality through something (such as an event) usually simple and striking
(3): an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure
(Meriam Webster Dictionary)
Did you know there’s another meaning?
: an appearance or manifestation especially of a divine being
Which makes sense and explains the formal meaning of the word,
Epiphany (capitalized): January 6 observed as a church festival in commemoration of the coming of the Magi as the first manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles or in the Eastern Church in commemoration of the baptism of Christ.
For the past few weeks, I’ve had a few small epiphanies. I don’t want this bright bit of knowledge to fade away, so I’ve been writing these down.
Do you think it’s possible that these tiny pieces of enlightenment are actually gifts? Like, maybe they coincide with a sudden (and probably invisible) appearance or manifestation of …
*a divine being, such as an angel
*or a beloved ancestor
*or a Midichlorian migration
Just a thought.
I had one today while responding to a friend’s wisdom in a letter. As I was writing it, I thought, Hmm! This would make a pretty good mantra. Maybe someone else thought it up (*which is why I listed it as anonymous, above). Either way, I really like it.
Love and let live.
Of course, it could also sound like a currently-benign and sometimes-capricious diety’s favorite mantra, as in, “I love you …today. So you live…today.”
Now I have this song stuck in my head. (You’re welcome.) =)
I hope we all have a great weekend. ♡
