Have any of you ever had an epiphany? If so, could you share? Dictionary Definition of Epiphany - Sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something / an intuitive grasp of reality through something. The most recent 'epiphany' of mine (I think of an 'epiphany' as more of a life chaning realization of sorts) was another one about possessions. I very much agree with Chuck Palahniuk's views on the topic from his book, Fight Club. "The things you own eventually end up owning you." I completely agree, and have agreed many times, but then after awhile I always cave in and by something that I know I don't need. It's hard to find a balance.
