Love is not the strongest emotional force within a person......

Disclaimer: I am writing in a conversational tone, so please bear with me.

As I was standing in my shower earlier, all of a sudden I came to the realization that selfless, kind acts positively impacts the environment of an individual. I instantly felt light-headed. I couldn't standup any longer, so I sat on the tub, though that wasn't the only epiphany that I had at that second.

The weird part was that when I realized the power of selflessness, this lead me to the realization that I just had an epiphany. So, as silly as that sounds, I had an epiphany about having an epiphany.

I began to contemplate the chemical changes, even though I didn't fully understand these chemical changes, in my mind when I had the epiphany 'that selfless kind acts positively impacts the environment of an individual', I then realized that the instant that I had this strong epiphany, which has never happened before, but this is the part that caused me have another epiphany.

If I could have measured my mind the instant that these chemical changes occurred when I had an epiphany, then I bet that they would have been really intense. I think back to the epic fairytale love story I had just watched before my shower, and this lead me to realize that love and selflessness together is a "powerful magic".

This brought me to a strong conclusion that my epiphanies accumulated together felt like a supernova just went off in my mind! This led me to the conclusion that the Power of Epiphanies is the strongest emotional force within an individual human being. Epiphanies, more addictive than Love, but heals your heart faster than Selfless Acts.

Multiple epiphanies truly felt better than anything I have ever felt before within my body. This is what sets us apart from others species on Earth; it is the ability for multiple epiphanies at an instant, which sets us apart. Epiphanies is also known by others as insight.

Thank you for reading my thoughts. Hope to read yours. =)

    May 23 2012: I find this interesting as i read you conversation derek. I have fallen in to love and found that this person in many ways has sent my life into a negative spiral but i have realised it was all a selfish act of evil and benifit to themselves for investment into themselve as they cannot face there own personal destinies there own. anyway i have only experienced this as as i was spiralling out of control i also was meeting people that have been in volved with me in this place i had not been as i will explain for example in a second. there have been a number of topics just been expressed above these that relate to a story that i have also tried to tell was my experience being in a relationship of love and that of you experience in the shower the power of love and the strength it has to lure you into certain pathss if you get my drift. just to finish my spin- I have loved someone but after this experience i fell into a relationship where a girl that i was with 1 night had been hit and ran over by a car right in front of me. she is ok still recovering though. but as i have experienced and from her own words she said i was one of the most sefless people she had met and prescious to her. her family didnt want anything to do with me so i just said i will be around if she wants me and thats the luck i have and experience with love.in short I loved some one as i have always started and they had issues and never let that love into their life. this might start another subject that you can love more than one person or just i will never be able to love the right PERSON

      I am sorry to read about the girl you love, but I hope you continue to express yourself and stay patient. Patience will award you great things in life, but also to not be afraid to assert your existence in the world. =)
