It seems to me that Epiphany is a reminder to us for the need to continue to search. The three "wise men", who were probably astronomers rather than royalty, searched outside of their own countries, societies and spiritual traditions to find an infant, born into poverty, who the results of their own searching pointed to as a "king".
These men were not afraid to go where their searching lead. They were not afraid to venture out beyond their comfort zones to discover truth.
We need to be spiritually and intellectually honest with ourselves, no matter where this takes us.
