    Being innocent literally means to cause no harm. Sometimes I am innocent, such as when I am speaking from what I am experiencing, including to say what I see, imagine, fantasize, assume, feel, and/or think, speaking caringly, honestly, directly, and openly, and speaking goallessly, that is, not trying to manipulate or make any particular outcome happen. When so doing, I am confident I am causing no harm -- occasionally the other may feel upset in some way, but that's not my causing harm. What helps me be a human of innocence when I am one is knowing it is the right way to be, trusting the value and benefit of it, and knowing the satisfaction that comes from it.
