Justice And Judgement

What is justice? Justice is a man-made concept, conceived in response to actions of the ego. That’s probably not the definition you would have expected, nevertheless it is true.

When one comes to the realization that there exists a GOD created and supported creation, within which exists a human created and supported creation, then one can begin to understand the two levels of reality which are always interacting with daily life.

Humanity has a tendency to view itself as the sole inhabitants of the whole of creation, due to any visible evidence to the contrary. Yet even when occasional evidence to the contrary is presented, it is ignored because it would upset the current paradigm of belief that people hold to be true.

How does all this apply to justice and judgment? Well the call for justice (truth) implies the possibility of injustice (error), and as a result of those two potential states there is created a need for a process that people call “judgment,” in order to define the nature of a thought, or action. God has no need for judgment because it is the source of all “knowledge,” or if you prefer “ultimate reality.” God always knows the exact nature of everything, being its creator.

And so at the very highest level of universe reality, (ultimate reality), the Creator is all that exists, and all things are sourced within the reality that is the Creator. Who or what then exists to judge the Creator?

When one is incapable of error except by intent, what possible use would one have for judgment? Therefore, whatever your definition of the Creator is, it is true that being the only reality, there is nothing or no one outside of God to lay down a judgment, and no need to judge anything that is incapable of error.

Humanity however, did not create itself, even though it has a strong belief to the contrary, and in that belief, they have created the first of many errors in belief.

Secondly humanity has created an additional error in the belief that it is the sole intelligent life in all visible creation.

We need go no farther in listing the errors in belief held within social consciousness for they are many and frequent. It is this ability to error which is the basis for the idea and perceived need for judgment. For judgment itself serves no other purpose than to determine the truth of a thought, word or action. And once that truth has been revealed, things may proceed along the lines of that truth.

The flaw in this system is that false beliefs about the nature of reality lead to judgments that are equally false. It can be no other way.

Thus God has admonished use to leave all judgement  in his hands, not because humanity shouldn’t judge, but because humanity is, at this point in it’s development of consciousness, incapable of accurate judgment.

Human judgment then should always lean towards compassion, for the reason that the possibility of making inaccurate judgments is so prevalent.

Ego however will rarely advertise or agree with the idea that it could be in error. It views itself as the ultimate authority in each persons life, and goes about its business of judging everything and everyone as part of its process of leading itself to its highest good.

The ego is the author of judgment because it is in competition with every other ego, and so judging other people as inferior, inadequate, or incapable is one of its methods of eliminating some of its competition.

If the ego really believed all people were totally equal to itself in every respect, then judgment would serve no purpose whatsoever.

In closing then, humanities ideas about justice and judgment are just that,… ideas. They were conceived as a result of humanities quest for truth, and need for protection from the aggressive nature of other egos. The more you align with the Creator, the closer to knowledge you become, and the less need there is to judge anything.

Love and appreciation replaces the need to judge.
