It's easy to mistake being innocent for being simpleminded or naive.We all want to seem sophisticated; we all want to seem street-smart.To be innocent is to be "out of it."

Yet there is a deep truth in innocence. A baby looks in his mother's
eyes, and all he sees is love. As innocence fades away, more
complicated things take its place. We think we need to outwit others
and scheme to get what we want. We begin to spend a lot of energy
protecting ourselves. Then life turns into a struggle. People have no
choice but to be street-smart. How else can they survive?

When you get right down to it, survival means seeing things the way

they really are and responding. It means being open. And that's what
innocence is. It's simple and trusting like a child, not judgmental
and committed to one narrow point of view. If you are locked into a
pattern of thinking and responding, your creativity gets blocked. You
miss the freshness and magic of the moment. Learn to be innocent
again, and that freshness never fades.

"Este usor sa interpretezi gresit a fi inocent ca insemnand nu foarte destept sau naiv.
Toti vrem sa parem sofisticati;Toti vrem sa fim smecheri.
A fi inocent inseamna a fi demodat.

Cu toate acestea in inocenta sta un adevar.Un copil se uita in ochii mamei sale si tot ce vede e dragoste.Cand inocenta se duce,lucruri mai complicate ii iau locul.Credem ca e nevoie sa-i pacalim si sa-i depasim pe altii pentru a obtine ce vrem.Incepem sa folosim multa energie pentru a ne autoproteja.Apoi viata se transforma intr-o lupta.Oamenii nu mai au alta alegere decat sa fie smecheri.Cum altfel pot sa supravietuiasca?

Cand te implici cu adevarat,supravietuirea inseamna sa vezi lucrurile cum sunt in realitate si sa ai o reactie.Inseamna sa fi deschis.Asta este inocenta.Este simpla si increzatoare ca un copil,fara a judeca sau a se lega de un anumit punct de vedere.Daca esti prins intr-un anumit tip de gandire si reactie,creativitatea ta se blocheaza.Iti este dor de noutatea si magia momentului.Invata sa fi inocent iar,si tineretea nu va disparea niciodata."
