To have that epiphany

That thought

That life changing realization

These are the moments that move our lives forward

And bring it creation


Although these moments of clarity

Are fleeting

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.”

-Jonathan Franzen.  The Corrections.
