They say that Justice is blind and that the scales she holds will determine the verdict. Truth and fairness and clear thinking are the keys. But here the sword is pointed downwards and surely the scales will not hold whatever is placed on them to be weighed as they too are upside down. Is this a call to look inwards and face a personal burden of responsibility? Is there a situation that needs mending? Before we can solve the injustice of the world we must come clean with whatever offenses might be buried within our psyche. Let’s face the music, perhaps ask for forgiveness and allow justice to find its rightful upright position.
Love love love is what it’s all about this week. The expression “My cup runneth over” is apt as the dove of peace brings the wafer of forgiveness to the waters of love running over the rim of the golden cup held by the hand of god appearing out of the clouds in a blue blue sky. The water sustains the lilies dotting the surface of the pool of blue water. To Buddhists the water lily is a symbol of enlightenment, purity, and divine birth. The beautiful bloom emerges from the mud. Peace love and mercy. The spirit of the holidays approaches.
