epiphany 顿悟

know the chinese word for this but never realise the english word for this is ephiphany until Z point out.

Here's the meaning:

1(initial capital letter) a Christian festival, observed on January 6, commemorating the manifestation of Christ to the gentiles in the persons of the Magi; Twelfth-day. appearance or manifestation, esp. of a deity.

3.a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

4.a literary work or section of a work presenting, usually symbolically, such a moment of revelation and insight.

一刹那间, 明白了一些事, 这或许是顿悟吧。既然明白了,就往前吧。
Suddenly I seem to understand certain matters, time to move forward.
