The quality of being ‘just’ is defined as
n adjective morally right and fair. appropriate or deserved.
(of an opinion or appraisal) well founded.
Justice is usually used within the context of ‘making others ‘pay’ for what they’ve done’ as a form of everyone getting to live the consequences of their actions. The word justice just as liberty and – unfortunately so – Equality as well have become these empty shells that are broadly used and apparently understood, but the reality is that whenever words are used to ‘fit’ someone’s intentions/ interests, then we know that we’re not using words as living words that can be applied by all – we are instead using the words as representations of our own moral standards and our own value-schemes that are only relevant to ourselves as personalities, as a particular individual shaped and formed within a particular country, with a particular culture which are aspects that influence someone’s perspective toward life from the get-go, as it’s accepted as ‘how things are’ – within this we can go to the tribal-example of how a certain practice of killing a murderer with machetes can be ‘making justice’ for a certain group of people, while this could be also considered as murder and a crime within another set of laws and political conditions.
Therefore – taking the point back to HERE where it all began. I came across the following post in the Self Forgiveness Group:
“How can I forgive myself for being a human shaped by my environment without accusing other people for being the same?
Then i have to forgive them too.
For me to do that. I have to be sure that justice is and sure about what justice is. If it is.
And about those issues I´m not sure.
Without justice I can’t forgive anyone.
And anyway. If everybody is forgiving everybody is it not the same as nobody is forgiving nobody?
Then it’s all right because without justice no one needs to be forgiven.
The point that’s usually missed within the implementation or consideration of Justice and its application is first of all taking the points back to self and focusing on Self Responsibility. We’ve learned from the demons how they got stuck in one single mind-dimension of wanting to ‘make justice /retaliate/ take revenge for’ the abuse that others might’ve inflicted towards those that they ‘loved’ – only later on realizing that the point that was missed all along was Self Honesty. So within this, a single desire for justice vindicated atrocious killings and murders for centuries, with no actual solution to heal such drive to ‘implement justice’ eventually becoming in nothing else than a usual mental-possession to keep an energetic-idea of self running.
What is ‘Fair’ in this world currently? What is ‘Just’? Nothing, it’s non existent because this word is not lived according to what’s best for all at all, but according to the ancient rules within rusty old constitutions that cannot even consider or fathom a world living in Equality. Hence we’ve really got to Let Go of any and all definition we’ve held as any form of ‘making justice to ourselves’ for that matter – we could only create justice if we advocate for a world in Equality and live every single day till it is done. Any other form of justice can only exist within the parameters of what ‘I’ as an individual have defined ‘Justice’ to be
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that ‘Justice’ implies doing on to another the same that ‘has been done on to me’ and ‘make them suffer the same way I’ve suffered’ as if that could be the best way to clear my name and clear ‘my stance’ toward myself and others in this world.
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed to imprint within the word justice a sense of ‘honor’ based on my ego, a sense of ‘clearing my name and my stance’ with seeing others go through the same that has been done on to me/ others around me which I have believed is ‘the way to correct ourselves’ without realizing that this is in essence taking revenge of and being spiteful about something or someone wherein there is no actual self-realization of instead seeing/ realizing HOW I created such event within my world, How I have lived and contributed to its existence? How I have accepted and allowed such event/action to exist without me ever wondering or caring to know about my point of participation within it?
I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that I can only participate and be part of that which is being ‘just for all’ without realizing that I’ve lived and participated in this world that has been the antithesis of justice for all without ever questioning it or realizing my self responsibility within that.
See, we cannot judge another, we cannot possibly point fingers in this world as everyone is ourselves – we can only point out the flaws in the world that has been accepted and allowed by ALL Equally without realizing that the actual problem is that: we live in these separate containments as our minds that doesn’t allow us to see how our words, actions and life experiences contribute in all ways to everything as it exist in our world. We’ve got to literally expand our realization of how everything I exist-as is relationships and how within everything and everyone being part of this world as myself, we are all equally responsible for anything and everything that’s here. Basic Oneness and Equality.
Justice within our current living-condition would be for all of us to simply allow ourselves to Forgive Ourselves unconditionally – because what’s been fucked-with is done, there is no turning back, there is no point in taking ‘revenge’ of anything as that would continue the same cycles of abuse . The point is to STOP all forms of abuse and instead walk the process of self correction wherein we face the consequences of our words, thoughts and actions; wherein we accept Self Forgiveness as this great second chance we can all walk and live as the opportunity that we have within this One Life to create at last a world that is of real justice for all, that is actually able to consider each living being as equal and living within fair conditions that enable LIFE to be Lived, expressed and enjoyed at last – there would be no need to ‘ask for justice’ then, there would be no need to want to ‘punish’ someone as the very basis of the system will take care of itself by a single principle that WILL be lived in this world and won’t just exist as nice ink letters in a shabby papyrus.
Our sense of Justice must begin with ourselves in humbling ourselves to realize how it is only LIFE that we have to redeem here – not our egos – and it is only Life as a single principle lived in this world that can implement such justice, and that’s already HERE, it’s happening and we are glad that we are finally able to face the consequences of our acceptances and allowances; we are glad that we can finally give up the idea of a ‘just’ god that would ‘sort it all out’ according to some ‘supreme’ ideals that were nothing but nice words sold but never applied.
Giving to each other what we want for ourselves as the living realization of being here on Earth implies giving ourselves the ability to Self Forgive and walk within this process as that opportunity to correct ourselves, to stand up, to stop the desire to ‘make justice’ of something toward another – We must Self-Forgive and that implies stopping all retaliation and potential obstacles that could prevent us from Forgiving Ourselves.
Only our Ego can prevent us from Forgiving Ourselves, only our history, our past, our ‘personality’, our ‘honor’ which is also another tainted aspect as the human creation that is perceived as this right for self-consecration that only boasts our idea of self up to the non-existent heaven which is lived out as a blatant sense of self-righteousness within a self-created moral code that benefits only ‘one soul’. You can read the previous entry to this one to gain more perspective on that.
Time to allow ourselves to walk in humbleness, realizing our Self Responsibility and living a life that’s worth living, a life that stands for actual Justice that can be lived and implemented for ALL Equally, without any personal agendas and past-dementia to redeem, but instead walk here as a principle to correct ourselves from this moment on – breath by breath, grounding ourselves here.
