Excerpt About Infant Soul
Absence of Constructs Allows the Infant's Soul to be in Touch with Her True NatureOur main reason for believing that the infant's soul is in touch with her true nature, but without recognition, is that we know from experience that when the soul is not perceiving through a construct, a construct that normally develops by the third year of life, her experience of herself is immediate. We also know that when the soul is experiencing herself immediately, without the intermediacy of such constructs, she experiences presence. Actually, this is true almost by definition: the experience of presence is nothing but the soul experiencing herself with immediacy. What else will the soul experience herself as but as presence, when she is experiencing herself immediately?
