I am a cat. I was born potty-trained. I know how to bury my refuse and stay clean.

You are a person. You were born innocent. You do know how to clear yourself of guilt.

I live in upstate New York where rocks and grass make for an impossible ground to dig in. The person I live with supplies me with a litter box full of litter he keeps cleaned out.

People can live in circumstances that cause them to make mistakes and become guilty. However, God supplies them with the knowledge to overcome the guilt with their innate innocence.

You don’t lose your innocence, just like I won’t lose my ability to potty outside. When it snows, I am out there doing my business.

Innocence is constantly being supplied by God, Truth. You can yield to this innocence and heal the mistakes and guilt.

Within the framework of innocence and truth, your thoughts and behaviors will be humble and honest and healthy.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “At all times and under all circumstances, overcome evil with good. Know yourself, and God will supply the wisdom and the occasion for a victory over evil. Love is a protective covering. Wear it! Wrapped up in love, human hatred can’t reach you. The confirmation of a higher humanity will unite all interests in the one divinity.”

A buzz in my ear from life
The woods around us are teeming with black flies. During the muggy summer days those flies are doing what? Flying. This morning on my walk the flies were so thick I thought I might breathe one in. I felt annoyance build up as I tried to swat them away. Then I looked beyond the buzzing in my face
