Spiritual justice works by taking advantage of any human injustice in order to ultimately bring about a greater level of justice. This means that all forms of negativity can be stepping-stones to something better. This also means that as we go along, hoping to move in the general direction of perfection, we must allow the germ of evil to sprout. For if it remained dormant with no opportunity to show itself, it would not release the untruth it holds, and that is what’s blocking our bliss.
One of our classic negative moves is to deny the truth that we are the ones who say No to life. Adding to this, we blame others for our own holding back. Then we deny the blaming. Every time we do this, we are in violation of the laws of life. For the laws of life work in service of uncovering the truth, and one very important truth is that the causes for our resistance, denial and blame always live inside of us.
It’s also true that any time we behave in ways that gratify our own egos while obviously hurting other people, we are living in violation of a couple of laws: the Law of Justice as well as the Law of Brother and Sisterhood. For it’s not possible to hurt others without hurting ourselves at the same time, and vice versa. When we do that, the consequence will be inner turmoil and outer trouble. Living in this kind of ignorance is technically a sin, for to sin is to live in ways that deviate from spiritual laws. This is why we’re encouraged to love our sisters and brothers as ourselves.
