I wonder how many epiphanies I’ve had, that became such commonplace truths after the fact that I forgot there ever was an epiphany?
And how many triggering events might have been forgotten, or never recognized as the source?
It is a heck of a way to muddle through it all, as if you never muddled. You just know, ya know? Or do you? I mean, how do you know this revelation isn’t a re-epiphany, hmm?
Anyway, I had one of these the other day, and the grouping of its cause and effect, and yes, a subsequent and post-subsequent epiphany even, was so painfully paralyzing that I pray God that my incessant amnesia remain viable with this respect, even after I reread this post in time.
There can be such power in occurrences that it is readily imaginable how some never emerge, and I’m only speaking of the mortal sorts, thinking the divine modes unfathomable.
That’s all, never mind. ~tdv
