Into each person’s life, times arise in which we stand on the edge of our innocence.
We had been operating with the blinders of naivete cloaking our visions and we were protected
from understanding the peril of our own journey.
The edge of innocence is the time of awakening in which blinders fall free and we finally
see the landscape we are navigating.
It is not as ridiculously safe and flat as we once thought. Nor are we as weak as we once believed.
Innocence is the double-edge- protecting in its state of non-awareness.
Until you become truly brave and can walk the edge, you will never see border of the world in which you are living.
I think we all have places in our lives in which our blinders come off. We are left with a sense of awareness at what we now truly see, but also a sense of instability and as we realize how naive we had been to what was happening around us.
I guess I believe similar to “the teacher will appear when the student is ready”, our blinders fall free when we are truly ready to see.
If you are standing at a place in which you feel the edge of your innocence, I wish you strength and awareness as you finally see.
