childlikeness

"Small children somehow know that they have nothing of themselves on which to base any claim to gift or favour, yet they still believe that love will reach out and enfold them.  Devoid of adult pretentiousness, and full of their belief in being unconditionally loved, they have not yet begun the endless, competitive quest for self-justification, for proving their worthiness, for being in 'the state of grace', for relentlessly producing something better than anybody else.  Here lies the freedom and joy of the  daughters and sons of God."
 - Daniel J. O'Leary, Travelling Light - Your Journey to Wholeness,  p. 125.
