Because our God-designed developmental needs were not fully met we developed an inner judge of critical self-rejection. This judge usurps the place of God, who alone is wise enough to tenderly lead us forward into fullness. God’s eyes are so pure they may almost be called “innocent.” It is one reason Christ is called the Lamb of God. Have you ever gazed in a lamb’s eyes?

To be seen with innocent, laughing eyes is to know the essence of self-acceptance, and with this we heal into the full innocence of Creation as it actually is. This full innocence is in all untainted Creation: love-filled dogs and cats, free birds, trees, fish, stones, cells, molecules, quarks. When our “eyes” become clear, we see a new, radiant Universe and it responds to us with its beauty and wonder. This is the “Kingdom of God” Christ longed for us to realize. It is our homecoming, our supreme illumination and happiness.

We are the twisted lens that must be made clear: the clarifying comes by complete forgiveness of each act, all we did not receive, all who hurt us in their ignorance, all our self-judgment, everything fully accepted through Love and for Love. Love is a living Spiritual reality of harmonious goodness, tenderness, freedom and joy. It is opened to by choice and realized in naked knowing. When Love soaks into every cell of our bodies and brains it is our encounter with the Naked Christ, our True Being, free of all religious connotations. It is our healing and wholeness at last.
