I am here, Lady Murasaki.
Yes, it is I. You may think that there is much that separates us - the many centuries, and my Asian homeland. But God’s Love knows no distinction as to Space and Time. Yes, I, the novelist of ancient Japan, have found the New Birth of the Master.
There have been other Asians who have done so, notwithstanding the fact that Asian religion generally has ignored Jesus.
No, I had an inquiring mind, and just as on Earth my curiosity caused me to investigate the human heart, so in this land of spirits, my curiosity brought the New Birth to me. And oh, the happiness that has been mine!
Murasaki Shikibu (Lady Murasaki),(c. 973 or 978 – c. 1014 or 1031) was a Japanese novelist, poet and lady-in-waiting at the Imperial court during the Heian period. She is best known as the author of The Tale of Genji, written in Japanese between about 1000 and 1012. Murasaki Shikibu is a nickname; her real name is unknown, but she may have been Fujiwara Takako, who was mentioned in a 1007 court diary as an imperial lady-in-waiting.
