Innocence always has existed as the basis of life
Whence then come perpetrators and strife?
Where innocence exists how can cruelty form?
It is from innocence that cruelty is born
Innocence in seeing consequences of actions does fail
Like the innocent child pulling an animal’s tail
Innocence without knowingness creates cruelty
It lives in the moment and cannot the consequences of actions see
From Almine’s Science of Alchemy.
Check back tomorrow for the second part, with more insights into innocence and how to balance it.
