To have that epiphany
That life changing realization
These are the moments that move our lives forward
And bring it creation
Although these moments of clarity
When you can see your life, and feel the universe
There’s no one you’d rather be meeting
And once it vanishes
Just smile and move on
Because if you stare too long
It’ll be gone
This is the light that never dies
And here is where the heart of life lies.
“And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight – isn’t that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently, and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before? You see things more clearly and you know you’re seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.”
