I was watching a group of children the other day, they were playing in the mall in the play area as I sipped my coffee and passed by slowly, noticing their happiness with the world.
The innocent see the good in the world around them, they are not very aware yet of the hidden dangers of that world.
Innocence (or guiltlessness) is a term used to indicate a lack of guilt, with respect to any kind of crime, sin, or wrongdoing. In a legal context, innocence refers to the lack of legal guilt of an individual, with respect to a crime.
This lack of knowledge of wrong doing is forever changed slowly as they learn and grow. The further they go up that knowledge tree the more wary they become. That is because they are learning to look deeper at their world and become more in tune to dangers.
On Being Nine is a post that will focus on coincidence, connections and looking deeper into the world we are living in. As it appears on the surface, as well as the actual realities. The differences and the spin. The hidden connections that are so important. Important to those being nine, as well as the rest of the world.
We will cover deeper connections here to the things we are seeing now in current affairs as well as some in history. They do connect more then we could ever dream.
Oh to be nine again…
