David Matthew Brown  website on my work.


The Following section was taken from my book, “The Book Of Light: The Heart Opening” which you can find on Amazon.

“David Matthew Brown captures what Ben Franklin, Emerson, and some of the great thinkers and writers of our time could not articulate in words, and yet studied, “Innocence”. His dialogue on innocence should be studied by all of us and contemplated. It is a brilliant work of art, and writing. Innocence is our true freedom. Brilliant.”  Jeff Ferrannini, creator, producer, and host of Planetary Spirit

The Book Of Innocence

Written By David Matthew Brown

1.              Innocence is the wonderment of life.
2.              With innocence comes playfulness and joy.
3.              Innocence is pure and purity is found where it has always been, right now.
4.              The search, seeking, reading, questioning, and road stops here. It is when the world out there is finally released to the inner world. And all at once everything is one.
5.              Both feminine and masculine exist here. Not as duality but synchronicity.
6.              Like a child curious of the next breath is where innocence flourishes.
7.              Nature is the guide, heart is the brain, and being is alive.
8.              Innocence celebrates laughter and playfulness because it knows that everything is coming and going, and it is useless to hold on to anything, or anybody.
9.              Innocence is awake but not as a final outcome of the mind but as the realization of now.
10.            All things, which were a constant reminder, fall away in the beauty of this grace. Grace is innocence.
11.            All prayers are answered here.
12.            Thinking about things, memories, attachments, have dropped away.
13.            Innocence is a channel for the presence. All great work, ideas, artists, come from innocence.
14.            Tomorrow, yesterday are past, so there is no more running to or away from anything.
15.            Innocence is awareness, awareness is observing, observing is natural.
16.            Innocence is compassionate understanding.
17.            If you are thinking about this and wondering if you are innocent, or finding yourself comparing, competing, then perhaps now would be the time to put this down and walk in nature.
18.            Nature is innocence.
19.            Love is innocent, unburdened by yesterday, unburdened by the world, and unburdened by judgments of self.
20.            Purity is innocent. Just like water is the pure, gasoline of the body temple, purity is the energy of love.
21.            Purity is dropping heaviness of energy.
22.            Talking about it, judging your self, and others will not allow it to be, because it is already here.
23.            As discovered in Part 1 and 2, silence is nothing and nothing exists without investment. When you invest in love, which is enough, you will see nothing is lacking at all. When you invest in fixing, repairing, changing, and resisting, which are acceptable behaviors in the world, then you exist in
debt. Debt is to invest in lack. When you lack attention in the present, then you are indebted. If you invest in only now, then you invest in opportunities. Opportunities are only found now.
24.            A child is innocent till made to feel guilty. 
25.            Right now you may feel guilty or in shame about what was, what will be, but remember that all is seen and unseen. How can an innocent child be guilty? When it has done nothing wrong. 
26.            Innocence is alarmingly simple. But since the investment is being made in tomorrow, then the energy of now is lacking. It is as though you keep taking gas out of the car and asking yourself, “Why doesn’t the car run?” If you keep the gas in the car, then you will be able to move moment to moment without being scared of your own creation. God didn’t create fear. So where does this fear exist, other then in a place that doesn’t exist. So is fear a belief in a creation that doesn’t exist? If it is, then by putting attention on a place that doesn’t exist, the place will go away. When the place goes away then it can’t be real, it can’t be the truth. Correct. And yet the focus is on this place all the time. 
27.            Innocence is awareness. 
28.            There is nothing that exists that hasn’t existed until attention is put on it. When attention is put on the real, all else goes away. 
29.            A child plays in the sand box. The child creates a game with other children. They make up rules, they make the game up, and then they create again. The game is always playful and


fun and it includes everyone. Does your games include everyone? Or are they excluded?
30.            Innocence is freedom to play and learn, nothing more. No right or wrong. 
31.            Innocence uses the word sorry to delete the messages of the unreal. Sorry is a suggestion to yourself and others that you were simply not being loving in that moment. Sorry is not a punishment, sorry is not making your self right, and the other wrong, sorry is the simple awareness that we are one, and for a brief moment it was forgotten. 
32.            Innocence acknowledges selfless living. 
33.            There is no judge or jury even if someone lies to you, in innocence one does not hold on to it and punish the person. The innocent one understands where the lie came from. Forgives and moves on. 
34.            Purity has no grudges for another, for it knows the other as it self. 
35.            A tree stands strong in the ground; it moves with the wind, and losses its leaves continuously. New leaves replace the old and this is natural. Things come and things go. Life is innocent. 
36.            Again please be reminded that if innocence is an idea or image in your mind then you are missing the point. 
37.            You cannot act innocent, pure, and find it. 
38.            Animals are innocent and people are too. Punishment for
our selves comes from not loving. The student punishes it self for doing cruel things. Withholding love from yourself and others is an act of punishment, and that is cruel. That is unnatural.
39. Children ask questions from curiosity, which is innocence.
