Ascension by Christine-Muraton Ascension by Christine-Muraton
J’ai passé dix jours sur la montagne, au haut de la montagne, sur un plateau au pied duquel s’est couchée une plaine immense, où je suis seule, où je n’ai bougé depuis... Depuis combien de temps suis-je ici ? Je n’ai pas bougé, je suis resté assise là, les jambes ballantes sur le vide, toute la Vie lové autour de moi. Ma main n’a pas failli, je n’ai ni tremblé, ni hésité.

J’ai visé le cœur, parce que c’est lui qui implosait, parce qu’il fallait qu’on puisse voir la face éclatante de la joie.

Qu’importe que les blés se soient couchés puis relevés, souples, au passage des ombres fugitives, que les eaux aient été huileuses comme un écoulement du ciel. J’ai vu des troupeaux paître paisibles; je me suis lointainement souvenu les peuples pauvres et affamés, j’ai regardé les herbes croître; je me suis lointainement dit que j’étais Homme. Toute la vie entends-tu ? entends-tu cette élévation d’un chant, la vie, à l’état pur, l’incommensurable vibration de la beauté originelle, de la beauté de l’être, de l’existence ? La beauté pure, qu’on souffre de contempler tant elle transperce, tant ses aiguillons excitent l’âme sans que l’âme puisse s’y dissiper comme un souffle dans le cosmos. Toute ma vie j’ai attenu l’instant de la dissipation. Et me dire que tout cela, là, devant moi, autour de moi, l’air que je respire, les odeurs qu’il porte, les plantes qui les exhalent, la terre sous laquelle elles se déploient, et l’air que je respire, éther sans parfum, vent, mouvement seul, c’est à présent moi. Moi ! dans quelques instants, maintenant, tout de suite, à présent, ô comme je lutte, comme il me tarde, comme je souffrirais presque d’attendre, cela est mon dernier présent, pour vous, pour vous à présent toute ma vie reflue vers ma nuque, se crispe dans mes doigts, bat dans mon cœur d’un battement insoutenable !

And many thanks to SacredUnion for helping me doing this!

i believe the description in english is...

I spent ten days on the mountain at the top of the mountain, on a plateau at the foot of which is a vast plain lying, I am alone, I have not changed since ... How long am I here? I did not move, I was sitting there, legs dangling over the void, the whole life coiled around me. My hand did not fail, I did not tremble or hesitate.

I covered the heart, because it is he who imploded because he needed to be able to see the bright side of joy.

Whatever the wheat is lying then be raised, soft, fleeting shadows of the passage, that the waters were oily as a flow of air. I saw herds graze peaceful, I distantly remembered the poor and hungry people, I watched the grass grow, I said I was distantly Rights. Do you hear any life? Do you hear this elevation of a song, life, pure, immeasurable vibration of the original beauty, the beauty of being, of existence? Pure beauty, we suffer to contemplate as it pierces both his spurs excite the soul without the soul can be dissipated like a breath in the cosmos. All my life I now reduces dissipation. And tell me all this, there before me, around me, the air that I breathe, smell it carries, the plants that give off the land in which they are deployed, and the air I breathe ether fragrance, wind, single movement, it is now me. Me! in a few moments now, right now, now, oh how I struggle, as I look forward, as I suffer almost expect, this is my last gift to you, you now all my life flows back to my neck tenses in my fingers, my heart beats in an unsustainable beat!
