Known - a bit of beautiful prose
Friday, April 23, 2010
I would like to share a beautiful bit of prose written by Charles K. Robinson. It really resonates with me because, before I read this prose, I made up my SP username of "devenirbelle" which translates from French into " Becoming Beautiful."
I know you. I created you. I have loved you from your mother's womb. You have fled - as you now know - from my love, but I love you nevertheless and not-the-less however far you flee. It is I who sustains your very power of fleeing, and I will never let you finally go. I accept you as you are. You are forgiven. I know all your sufferings. I have always known them. Far beyond your understanding, when you suffer, I suffer. I also know all the little tricks by which you try to hide the ugliness you have made of your life from yourself and others. You are beautiful more deeply within than you can see. You are beautiful because you yourself, in the unique person that only you are, reflect already something of the beauty of my holiness in a way which shall never end. You are beautiful also because I, and I alone, see the beauty you shall become. Through the transforming power of my love which is made perfect in weakness you shall become perfectly beautiful. You shall become perfectly beautiful in a uniquely irreplaceable way, which neither you nor I will work out alone, for we shall work it out together.
