When we are completely innocent, we have nothing to fear. It is only where we have lied, attacked, or acted lovelessly that we are vulnerable to punishment, counter-attack, or abandonment.
The innocent are those who believe in their goodness and live their truth openly and unapologetically. Because we love ourselves, we love others. Because we love others, we willingly serve and create value. Because we serve and create value, we create financial and material abundance.
Safety is lack of fear. What is there to fear when punishment is not a real threat, when no secret can be revealed to hurt anyone...when, in the knowledge of our innocence, we know there is nothing to hide? True safety is the reality of innocence, and you are innocent in this present moment.
If you fear, you must believe you are guilty in the past and are allowing it to define your present. Come out from the dark. Tell the truth about the past, forgive yourself, and let it go. Deal with it lovingly in the present. If there is love in your life, you will be forgiven. If not, you will be released from a loveless situation.
You may have erred, but you must surely know you are innocent and good. Forgiveness means letting go of the error and making goodness real. The innocent see safety, and experience it as our ongoing state.
