Exactly, that's what I couldn't put into words. I'd like to call it something like maturity, but the way the word "mature" has been thrown around so much it's hard to place that word onto this. I was afraid my post was too much philosophy, because I tried to "sum it up". This response however, "nailed it". Thanks for sharing this.Hi Arizona. So you do open different topics of discussion. Though I am going to focus just on the last point, which is something I can relate to and can share on.
"I suppose the crux is that innocence must also interact and express to be able to walk through the situations, and the side effect of this is enacting "positive change" in everything around it. With the world the way it is, this takes real guts to do and i'm not surprised so few can make it out unscathed."
Here it is important what your definition of innocence used in this moment. For me the definition that is most supportive for all life is the one that refers to our capability to be honest with each other, humble, caring, giving, sharing, willingness to question everything, being curious about everything, willing to learn anything, not having any fear, doubt or resistance etc...
While walking my process I have attempted living such points of innocence. I found that it wasn't enough to attempt to live such innocence with others, because I would react to others. So the solution I found was sorting out my reactions, so they don't interfere with my expression, or become my expression.
This is just my experience I am sharing, and so this is what I found.
As a person wanting to learn, grow and expanding - holding themselves as a creative process -- you will make mistakes, you will go through falls, and you learn as you go along. What defines a person there is not the mistake they make but what they do with it after it's happened.
You can't expand without making mistakes, you're not 'perfect' - that is why we are in a process of self-expansion, because we KNOW we don't have all the answers yet. Mis-takes are part of the process. If you're not making any mistakes, can guarantee you're staying in your comfort zone
