In our fast-paced and often chaotic world, it's easy to lose sight of the purity that resides within us all. This purity is the essence of our inner space, untouched by the thoughts and memories that accumulate as we navigate through life. It is the innocence we see reflected in the eyes of young children, who are still intimately connected with their Soul Essence. This essence is the source of pure love, the foundation of our existence.
When we gaze into the eyes of a child, we witness their unwavering connection to this inner purity. They look out at the world with love, expecting nothing less in return because that's all they have ever known. As we grow and experience the complexities of the world, we tend to lose touch with this inner innocence. The world teaches us different ways of thinking and being, and we become entangled in the distractions of daily life. However, the process of returning to this inner innocence is not a linear one. Some of us may find our way back quickly, while for others, it may take a lifetime. What's important to remember is that there is no right or wrong in this journey—it is simply the human experience.
For many of us, there's a sense of something greater, something beyond the earthly realm that we can't quite shake. We may have felt like outsiders or questioned why we were here. This innate awareness of another dimension, an inner knowing, is a part of our connection to the Soul Essence within us. I can personally relate to this sense of connection to "something" beyond the physical world. Even as a young girl, I questioned the nature of my existence and felt that there was more to life than met the eye. My family was loving and supportive, so it wasn't about them. It was about a deep inner knowing that I couldn't ignore.
My mother often spoke of her awareness of another dimension, which further fueled my curiosity. My siblings, however, saw me as different and teased me for it. Yet, I held onto that inner connection, knowing that it guided me and kept me safe. We all have this inner connection—it's the same light we perceive when we look into the eyes of an innocent child. This light never truly dims; it is always there, waiting for our acknowledgment. The only thing that changes is our awareness of it. Sometimes, we turn our attention away from it, distracted by the demands of daily life.
I challenge you to look into a mirror and gaze into your own eyes. Don't scrutinize your face; instead, go deeper, straight into your eyes. There, you will find it—Pure Innocence, shining back at you. It is a reminder of your true essence, your Soul Essence, that has been with you since the beginning. Now, take that inner innocence and share it with others. Even when faced with frustration or anger, consider shining your light of innocence toward those who may have lost touch with their own inner sanctum. In that sacred space within us all, all the answers reside. Listen to the whispers of your inner innocence, and let it guide you to a place of understanding and compassion. Share that Innocent Light with the world, and watch as it transforms not only your own life but the lives of those around you.
(YEP, THAT'S ME!)
