Somewhere, inside every human being, lies innocence, for it is born into the fiber of life, woven into the network of existence. Often forgotten, it nonetheless exists. It is needed now when compassion is also needed, for the two go hand-in-hand. True compassion for another being requires meeting with innocence. And innocence requires a peaceful playing field if it is to dare step up to the plate. Perhaps your innocence will dare come out to play today and give of itself. May innocence, peace, and compassion greet you in return, but even if not, stay present in your own innocence. It’s the gift that’s truly needed now.
