Epiphany!
    #2159909 - 12/05/03 01:07 AM (13 years, 7 days ago)

Epiphany:  A comprehension or perception of reality by means of a sudden intuitive realization: ?I experienced an epiphany, a spiritual flash that would change the way I viewed myself?.

Sometimes the bell rings! and you realize!  You realize something wonderful is happening, you just forgot to notice.

(cue music)

See Ms. Malone
She spends another quiet evening alone
Sits in her study and stares at the phone
And a bell in her head will ring! :eek:

     

All the children sing
All the dancers start to sway in time
The orchestra begins to play
Somebody pours the wine
The sun and moon collide
Isn't gravity a funny thing
The universe explodes apart
All the children sing

Of Mr. Malloy
He's always seen himself as one of the boys
He thinks that men are tough and women are toys
But a bell in his head will ring! :eek:

All the children sing
All the birds are chirping harmony
The scent of love is in the air
Sunset on the sea
The angel of the Lord
Just declared we aren't worth a thing
The galaxy is null and void
All the children sing

Crawled across a thousand miles of desert sand
Looking from an answer from a holy man
And this is what he told me with a wave of his hand


He said, "A bell in your head will ring!"

:eek:

Here's to the Chinaman, wise and old
Here's to the Eskimo, brave and cold
Here's to the Jew in the holy land
Here's to the Arab in his caravan
Here's to the African, strong and proud
Here's to the Redneck, good and loud
Here's one to you and there's one more thing,

A bell in your head will ring!


     

Let's remember, life!

Thank you for this.

We live in a world where ordinary men have the opportunity to share with other ordinary men events on par with the discovery of the new world, divine prophecy, and the poetic variations which can be extracted thereof. All of which are gained without ever leaving our apartments.

You're welcome Ped.

Your syntax and grammar are impeccable.  The rhythm of your phrasing is like beautiful music.  It is a gift that you must have practiced I think.  We are lucky to have you post with us.

You must have heard a bell or two in your time. :wink:

When I drink too much beer, I have to go take an epiphany.

This is why I posted the definition.

That was nice, Ped. A nice thought and true.

Mr. Mushrooms, I liked the song you posted. What is it from?

Yes, I had an epiphany last year. It was pretty cool, and it changed my entire life.

That song is from Todd Rundgren, my favorite artist.  It is called "All the Children Sing" and it is from the album, "Hermit of Mink Hollow."

I like to listen to the song while I look at the initial post.

Because I am weird.  :nut:

Primal nature of reality is the dakini with her bell ringing ringing to us all to awaken to the presence of now where all of heaven does reside. Not there or somewhere else.  Saraswati, the Creatrix, she the one of music does this existance thusly maketh. Amen.

Hey look, I didn't create this board's options and/or suggestions for common threads. I also see no reason to start a new one if that thread was interesting. I knw that was a boring argument. It's all I have. Fortunately some of those same members are still here. hurrah for that! I raise my glass today to you members who are still with us and you who have gone before.

Wow, talk about a blast from the past!  :lol:  That's LiquidSmoke's old avatar!  I've been looking for that for a while.  Probably one of my favorites because I love to dance.  Ahh yes, celebrating life.  It's been years and I'm still celebrating.

:dancing:

If I get the change I'll add the song to a post.  It's pretty cool.  :thumbup:
