Is Love Innocent?

Is Love Innocent?

Reflections by Ruth Sharon

Love is innocent is the title of a song by Colin Hay. What does that mean to you?

What if you could be as innocent as a child? Have you hung out with a kid under five recently? Being with my almost 3-year-old granddaughter is delightful! Her spontaneity, eagerness to learn and curiosity are so refreshing. Her tender hugs melt my heart!

I am sure you remember yourself before your parental and societal conditioning really set in, and your natural self was very present in each moment. Take time daily to connect with remembrance of your natural/essential self. Do you know him/her? I know I miss myself when I get too adult, mental, busy, strategic and invulnerable. So tiring!

What if you can relax and trust yourself and others to be innocent again? Try this: listen afresh, without pre-judging or assuming you know what he or she is going to say or do. Not so easy, right?

Try these tips today:

  • Be present to this moment, right now, right here. Notice the smells, sights, sounds, sensations, textures and feelings.
  • Call on Love. Ask Love to be with you now.
  • Drop down from your head bubble to your heart. Breathe into your heart and let Love move throughout your body. Can you feel connected to all of Life? This takes practice.

  • Tune into your belly now. Let Innocent Love soften the tightness and soothe the anxiety. Relax. Be safe.
  • Move your attention to your pelvic passion center. Breathe in life energy so you can feel delicious juiciness and delight.
  • Let your whole body breathe, as one whole being: Mind, Body, Heart and Spirit.
  • When being with yourself or others, try an experiment for a week: Reduce expectations. Be curious, open, innocent and ready for surprises. Let Love be innocent!
