Whenever we look at the sweet little faces
 of baby animals, our hearts just melt!  
What is it about innocence that is so attractive? 
  Perhaps it's the authenticity of an action 
without any contrivance that touches our heart!
  Watch this precious prairie dog. He 
beautifully exemplifies innocence!   


Mahatma Gandhi has said: 
"The greater our innocence, 
the greater our strength and the swifter 
our victory."

You probably remember the song, "Return to Innocence" by the group Enigma.  They borrowed this song from the Amis  tribe in Taiwan. The author is Difang, an elder that was named a national treasure of Taiwan.  He died in 2002 at 81 years of age. Difang and his wife Igay comprised the
 folk music duet that performed the original chant: 

In innocence you transcend the mind, 
and to transcend the mind is to
become the awakened one,
the enlightened one.
