Innocence is the absence of knowledge
that can create chaos in the mind and make one do things that will hurt them emotionally , mentally and spiritually. We never lose it. We hide it. We hide it because the cruel world will never let it exist on it's own. You have not lost your innocence. It is there , in you. You have covered it with a number of actions , words and appearances that are designed to the show the world that you are NOT innocent. That you cannot be taken for a ride. That you are not .. weak
The world teaches us that innocence is weakness. We have to grow to be cunning and smart. We must know evil as much as we know good. And we have to balance our actions between these two. We have been fed with many concepts and from these we have developed perceptions and beliefs on which our actions and decisions are based. These actions and decisions then have an affect on us. Maybe that of guilt, disappointments, joy, or humiliation. And in this drama gets lost the stable, beautiful and wonderful innocence. Add to this the passage of time.. and walls become stronger and stronger. Walls of that room in the heart where poor innocence gets locked up as we grow. When you lose all your dreams, your fantasies and your communication with the unseen
. What the world calls silly, but you love. Yes, Do not give up on your silly dreams and visions.
Remove all that the world has forced you to believe. Remove it all. Empty your chaotic mind. Your sins did not take away your innocence, your reactions of fake self concepts and guilt to those sins hid the innocence. You gave up and you lost hope. You have taken on burdens which are not yours to take.
Remove the burden of your sins from your heart through repentance. Forgive yourself. And most of all , remove the appearance you put up in front of the world because you fear ridicule. Remove worry, remove the concern and be yourself. Stop this fear from killing your innocence..
Empower your innocence with Faith. You will lose nothing...
