A Personal Epiphany

As you may know, last Friday, January 6, was the celebration of Epiphany, the twelfth day of Christmas.

The word Epiphany means to reveal. This particular day was the day that the wise men found Jesus. Consider their experience. They went to King Herod, and asked where Jesus was (and you may recall that Herod wasn’t especially thrilled). They watched and followed the star. The point is that their epiphany was an active process. They didn’t just go sit in their tents and watch football until someone brought them the news.

So it is with us. Jesus reminded us that for us to receive, we need to ask, seek, or knock. Just sitting in the corner and hoping for whatever it is won’t do it. Our manifestation may not require physical work on our part, but we must at least make the decision on what it is we wish to experience, and then do our affirmation prayer.
