    Epiphany

    How many of you had moments, you had an Epiphany about something ..for whichever issue it may be
    be it a worldly issue
    personal issue, with work or hobby
    and you desperately try to put it into a big concept in your head to able to put in paper later, and your mind starts visualising and imagining the possibilities,

    ...then someone comes along ask you a question or want you to do something, something that involves you and


    *POOF* ...your forgot what you were thinking about, or worse...forgot what the Epiphany was?

    *sigh*
    Yes.
    I'd put a sign up on my door if my parents would actually pay attention to and heed it.

    Story of my life.. It used to be astounding, but with intuitive Eureka moments becoming more common place in my life now, I think my brain has woken up.

    I recommend that next time you reach an epiphany, don't let yourself forget what you arrived at. Write it down or present it in a medium (i.e. begin painting a picture, making a story, playing a tune, etc.) Let it grow through your creativities. If there is some way of transferring that knowledge to an order of your own, you could very well be in the process of developing something of benefit to others as well.

    No, I'm more likely to fixate on the idea and have it rolling around until I can, at the very least, write it down just to get it out of my head. Even then, I'll find myself reflexively going back to refine the idea almost as if it had a life of its own any time something even vaguely reminds me of what I was thinking about before.

    This used to happen to me frequently. For various reasons, my short-term memory is... not so good; so I've taken to carrying a pen with me everywhere, and making notes. When there's no paper around, I jot down notes on my arms and stomach. Sort of like the guy from Memento, but my notes wash off.

    Yeah, that works much better than writing on your hand. You get a lot more space to work with and less chance of it rubbing or sweating off. I wrote a lot of my best notes there in high school until I could do something else with them.

    God I love that movie. It was so well made, and the story was just so fascinating.

    My short-term memory is not what it used to be. I think it may have to do with getting stoned so much. Although to be honest, I hardly smoke anymore, and I still can't remember stuff. Oh well.

    But I agree with what many have already said: if you get an idea that you really are fond of, don't wait; write it down. Do something to preserve it. Do that before you even begin to develop it. Just write down a short summary of what you're thinking, and that way you can jog your memory with your note when you do have some time and serenity to dedicate to your thought process.

    haha, ya, that use to happen to me often. I started to meditate and focus upon things that brought me love and kept searching for answers and everything just grew and exploded to the point where I was in a constate state of ever-evolving knowing and information and I developed as such. Its amazing what you can get from the quiet mind, and now I use mostly my heart to understand or to know things.

    Close your mind, close your eyes and see with your heart.

    Much love,
