THE SINLESSNESS OF MAN.  If it is understood how "sin came into the world” namely through errors of reason by which men held each other, even the single individual held himself, to be much blacker and much worse than was actually the case, the whole sensation will be much lightened, and man and the world will appear in a blaze of innocence which it will do one good to contemplate.  In the midst of nature man is always the child per se.  This child sometimes has a heavy and terrifying dream, but when it opens its eyes it always finds itself back again in Paradise.
