Return to innocence

I began to understand that the world experienced with our five senses was not the full picture. I had been tricked into believing that what could not be measured, dissected or peered at through a microscope, did not exist. Small children have not yet learned this great lie, and it is to this state of innocence that we can return. Sometimes the more earthly knowledge we have, the more we have to unlearn in order to understand true reality. The wisest of people are known to have the apparent innocence of children. Even Christ said unless you become like little children, you cannot enter the kingdom of God. Children can see the magic of the world. Every leaf and flower becomes a source of wonder. The border of scattered insects and leaves represents this perspective. To be able to see the power and beauty of creation in the petals of a flower or the pattern on a moth’s wings is to see the world in a whole new way.
