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 25 2012: Hello Fellow Tedsters,

    My definition of epiphany: a quick aggregation of experiences that reach a point of hightened meaning to the individual.

    My multiple epiphanies was a quick aggregation of almost all my experiences within my life, so far, that reached a point of hightened meaning that I found breath-taking.

    The epiphanies I experienced were not just an experience of love, but also had fear. This linear measurement with love and fear at its poles are moved by our desires to understand. I felt that when I reached my point of understanding it merged both my thoughts of fears and loves in my mind. I was in such a vunerable state, but at the same time felt so empowered. It was really strange, but inviting, like the calls of sirens to the forefront of my mind became so loud they blended into an orchestra. Meaning to things have become hightened now. Life is contingent; it was the right place at the right time. =)
