I am Expecting a Beautiful Miracle

Start here




I want to life a full and abundant life that God has promised. As colors should be as good as nothing if there were no eyes to behold them, so is beauty nothing without the eyes of love to behold it. The hearts asks pleasure first, and then, excuse from pain. Beauty is an objective property of perception by the senses that demands a heightening of consciousness. We often speak of an autumn afternoon, of a landscape as beautiful. It is right of nature to work unwitting effects of wonder. The common quality in the word beautiful will be almost as remote and elusive as those of the word good. Beauty comes from love, and it maintains a glorious elasticity in its own ecstasies of hope, provided you do not crush it with a doubt of its own purity. A thing of beauty is an immortal joy. Its loveliness increases and is full of sweet dreams. Beauty grows upon us every time we see it; that leaves room for something to be found out to its advantage, made for our searching. An endless fountain of immortal drink, pouring unto us from the Heaven’s brink, beauty is God’s wine, with which he recompenses the souls that love him; he makes them drunk. #RandolphHarris 1 of 5

Every life has its natural burden; it is therefore a blessing for mortals if they can lay all the weight of future days on the beginning of their career, in order to exempt thereby the evening of their journey from the pressure of sorrow. Beauty is a form of genius—is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts of the World, like Sunlight, or Springtime, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. It has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it. Human beliefs, like all other natural growths, elude the barriers of a system. Outside, the new moon shines bright all around, but the lonely lamp on my desk is dim. How I wish this small piece of paper would take to you my restless yearning.  With you in my memory, there is no end to pleasure. Memorable events cherished in my hearts, sweet memories will last. Open your heart, and dreams comes out from it. Dusk brings your eyes and the Sun throws my missing away.  Tears of departure comfort the pains in my heart. The best wishes you leave me turn to the foundation for my dream. #RandolphHarris 2 of 5

You have got to believe a thing before you can put any heart in it. Benevolence is the duty of one who aspires to wisdom. Virtue, therefore, manifests itself in action. More explicitly, an action counts as virtuous, when one holds oneself in a stable equilibrium of the soul, in order to choose the action knowingly and for its own sake. This stable equilibrium of the soul is what constitutes character. Virtue is a mean. The mean is a state of clarification and apprehension in the midst of pleasures and pains that allows one to judge what seems most truly pleasant or painful. This active state of the soul is the condition in which all the powers of the soul are at work in concert. Achieving good character is a process of clearing away the obstacles that stand in the way of the full efficacy of the soul. Moral virtue is the only practical road to effective action. What the person of good character loves with right desire and things of as an end with right reason must first be perceived as beautiful. Yearning is more perpetual than the Universe, higher than the Heavenly palaces, and more beautiful than the realm of fantasy, for an anxious heart is more unfathomable than the ocean. #RandolphHarris 3 of 5

It is impossible, indeed, to separate works from faith, just as it is impossible to separate heat and light from fire. The virtuous person sees truly and judges rightly. The brain is wider than the sky, for, put them side by side, the one the other will include with ease, and you beside. The brain is deeper than the sea, for, hold them, blue to blue, the one the other will absorb, as the Sun lights up the sky and the Moon brightens the darkness. The brain is just the weight of God since beautiful things appear as they truly are only to a person of good character. It is the middle ground between habits of acting and principles of action that the soul can allow right desire and right reason to take their appearance, as the direct and natural response of a free human being to the sight of the beautiful. Get over what wrongs have been done to you. Do not let bitter feelings settle in your foundation. Have the attitude that no one owes me anything and I have a great advantage. Know that God has equipped his people with beauty, harmony, and empowered us with love. All the forces of darkness cannot keep the people of God from their destiny. Beauty is a means of approaching God. #RandolphHarris 4 of 5

I am expecting a miracle. Beauty exists in the here and now and are the elements of symmetry, harmony, and definiteness. Beauty exists in nature or, the created order. For the believer, as humans are created in the image and likeness of God, we derive pleasure from the infinitely complex but ordered work of the Creator and turn to him in praise. God is beautiful of himself and the source of all beauty. Nothing can be added to or taken away from a perfect work of art. Beauty is intimately tied to knowledge, and we form our judgments according to what pleases us. As such, carnal people love carnal beauty and spiritual people love spiritual beauty. The divine brings out delight and praise. Beauty is the glow of the true and the good that shines forth from every ordered state of being. God is looking for people who have faith that he can see, a faith that is demonstrated. God, I pray that you light our hearts and light and let the Sun shine in our souls. Consume my life, my God, for it is yours. I seek not a long life, but a full one. God never belittles those who attempt to follow him, but he does chasten those who refuse to attempt anything from him. #RandolphHarris 5 of 5
