Justice - The Three Edged Sword - Your Side - Their Side - The Truth

The first of the four cards in the Minor Arcana which are called the first of the Four Moral Lessons, which are Justice, Temperance, Strength and the Hermit.

I  am of the belief, based on my own spiritual values and intuition that human beings have an innate sense of justice that we are born with, that gives us a balanced mind and spirit to allow for our understanding.

Charles Darwin believed that mammals and animals in the wild, under certain circumstances, could be moral  just as do many other scientists believe, like primatologist Jane Goodell . The tide is changing and we are not the only species that experience  and have a sense of wrong and right.

I see Justice as the balance between the two perspectives of classical  and romantic thought, between the intellect and the emotions, the Ying and the Yang of life. These perspectives may appear to be opposites, but they share an essential interdependence. Justice represents the integration and balance between these two necessary perspectives.

If we would search for this common ground what a huge difference this would make for the way things are in the world right now. It would require a very open mind to accomplish this....are were ready for that. Maybe trying is enough for now

I don't think we have to wait to be ready. It's a matter of decision and will. Unfortunately we seem to live in a world full of indecision and ill will. I do believe very much in the power of the individual to change the world, and so if we can do our own part, this is what makes the difference.
