    consider the exercise of justice even though many times outside of the law I consider an example of Justice in the following President Nixon was never convicted of a crime but received Justice in the humiliation and stripping of power he received in avoiding the law I think most everyone would find it very difficult to see Justice in the events of 9 11 However the psychic impact on the American people and the world can be seen as a spiritual event Our growing objective material attitude represented by the twin towers took a significant blow Spiritually the sacrifice that many people made that day and continuing today is definitely moving our society forward spiritually Our Living Spirit Store Books Paths Look Inside Characteristics of Spirit January Serenity Feburary Innocence March Integrity April Love May Justice June Harmony July Truth August Faith September Order October Peace Novermber Purity December Beauty Home About Us Articles Paths Programs Contact Us Our articles are available for reproduction for all members Please give credit to the author For non members please contact us for permission to reproduce articles The objectification of Justice expresses from the Monadic Plane These Monadic energies include the Word of God creative wisdom discernment objective archetypes Active Intelligence Love and Will Subjectively Justice resonates within the Realm of Attraction which provides a powerful attraction of all Matter back to its source Science has observed this physically in what is considered attractors These attractors are a prime ingredient of the order within chaos which describes all living organisms and life From these various views I would define this Justice as the characteristic of SPIRIT that creates a numinous alignment of energies in life based on treating equals equally and unequals unequally but in proportion to their relevant differences Objectively Justice provides the dispassionate impartiality which creates an equitable and proper fitting of like principles and forms Based on an all accomplishing Wisdom Justice creates an alignment of energies in expressing the Word of God Spiritualizing Exercises Our society organizes justice through a series of courts This man made expression is a reflection of a spiritual reality The order of life spiritually includes a series of courts which are responsible for the expression of Divine Justice The word Divine here imparts a sense of of or like God given or inspired by God devoted to God Regardless of the level of the court we can receive Divine Justice throughout our life The key is that we stand in Divine Justice and ask for it within our life relationships and daily activities A good place to begin is with our thinking and communications 3rd House activities Try to become aware of how your daily mind chatter reflects your own feelings and attitudes of having been mistreated whether by your boss your loved one a friend family member or individuals within your local environment of daily life Receiving Divine Justice can be as easy as meditatively stepping into its energies and asking that Divine

  • June-Harmony
    21st century metaphysics Harmony conditions the subjective Realm of Forces and the objective Unity Plane One definition of Force is as a limiting factor As Laws are the systems within the subjective Realm of Forces Harmony relates directly to law as a governing through coordination of multiplicity into uniform whole This is how objective unity unfolds from the Subjective Much more on this is in our first book God Man and the Dancing Universe To bring these various definitions together I conclude that Harmony is the characteristic of SPIRIT that conditions all manifested matter both actively and latently to see growth unity and perfection This Harmony is affinity a similarity or relatedness through likeness It helps fulfill cosmic purpose by leading creative diversity to the unified wholeness of One in perfection Spiritualizing Exercises A good way to bring Harmony down to earth so to speak will be to relate it to our spiritualizing exercises for the month Let s begin this months exercises in our home life First take a complete tour of your home Do you feel a pre established harmony Do the diverse expressions from your living room to your bathrooms from your kitchen to your office computer area and from the exterior to the interior create a uniform whole Don t forget or overlook the state of cleanliness and orderedness of these environments including closets and hideaways during your tour If you re like most and have not just prepared for a social gathering your examination will likely provide fodder for meditative review Even if you practice feng shui I might predict that the state of your daily home environment is less than harmonious From your review creatively make decisions and take action to bring your home to a more state of uniform whole or at least a pleasant combination of agreeable parts Regarding your family this 30 day period is an excellent opportunity to make changes which will create more harmony But what does this type of harmony mean Many times it means more compromise or more go along to get along Harmony is better achieved by each individual expressing her his true self Let s begin with Pythagoras and his imposition of definite ratios What is the ratio of you being able to be your true self with your family and how much you must adapt to the dictates of the family authority or conditioning Wherever the difficulty define the changes in your orientation and behavior which will bring a better ratio Or better yet the freedom for you to be your true self at all times On a less difficult tack focus on how you can bring more affinity within the family Focus on the similarities that you have with each family member Take steps to bring more relatedness through this likeness as you interact with each of them Further do so with an orientation of love and joy just as you would with your best friend or loving partner Most powerfully this month
