Innocence wears not a snarl…
has not a need to justify itself
and looks for no one to fault,
should something go wrong, No…
innocence is unaware of the
diversity of guile and those who
attempt to use it…
and should be seen as something
decent, integrity to condition or
belief of values upheld.
To see wrongs in the world and point them out is not judgmental! It merely points out the difference of what they might do to what others might do. It is then the reaction (emotion based) to what is said (sometimes hate based) that would impel or repel people to the comment- as if they don’t have one of their own they would force on you and call it understanding… even tolerant. To force on someone what they believe is intolerance, and this should not be confused with sharing what one believes as the truth they’ve found (simply espousing one’s thoughts of the heart). To tell someone what you believe leaves the choice up to the individual… and if they don’t agree then they simply walk away. Disturbance comes when one chooses to force their denial to believe what you’ve said back at you… such is the way of the world- and they call this tolerance and love.
Be thankful for the things you have… this Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 27th, 2014, and not the things you’d desire that another has- even to what beliefs they share if they speak not from love.
