We have to worship our innocence. I know sometimes you feel that you are dominated because of that. Sometimes you feel sad that why you are put to this kind of a treatment by others. All kinds of things come to your mind. But if you worship your innocence, then you will be always a happy person, always a kind person, always be humble person. So one has to be careful. You are your own destroyer, you are the one who kills yourself…. You can save yourself and you can become very glorified if you are innocent. Have faith in the power of innocence. (22.09.2001)

Every Day with Shri Mataji – 22/09

Innocence is so important, the fundamental quality of innocence is that it has innate wisdom, having childlike innocence has a quality which is evident in babies and small children. It represents action without motive or desire for gross personal gain.

The root of wisdom, if left untampered, in adulthood it would display itself as a balanced set of priorities. Unfortunately the influence of parents, society and especially multimedia influences tends to muddy this innocence and so obscure the wisdom that goes with it.

Simplicity, joy, purity, integrity and balance are other qualities manifest in human beings through innocence the strength or weakness of this centre. Sexual excessiveness, both physical and mental, creates imbalances throughout the body”s systems. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi said that the best way to regain our innocence is to, “Put our carnal desires, dissolve them into the innocence, the Ocean of Innocence; we have to dissolve it in the Ocean of Innocence. Innocence is something to be appreciated, to be understood, to be enjoyed. Like you see animals are innocent; the children they are innocent; flowers they are innocent. Divert your attention to all these things.”
