Justice is divine
by the Master , through Benjamin Creme

More than legal writ, justice is based on God's laws.


Justice is divine. Longed for by millions bereft of its sacred balance, justice brings to the world of men the harmony of God. As a looking-glass reflects the image of man, so does justice reflect the nature of the divine. The measure of the lawlessness of the time is known by the degree of injustice in the world, & today, injustice stalks the poor on every hand.

Legally, justice rules the field of social regulation, of crime & punishment, but fundamentally justice has to do with the laws of God, which work towards harmony & correct relationship. Every injustice, however small, brings disharmony to the whole. Today, so great are the areas of injustice in every land that extraordinary measures are required to prevent total chaos.

Injustice is a denial of man's divine potential; it separates man from man and humanity from God. Throughout the world, many are struggling to free themselves from age-long injustice, exploitation & tyranny; to set down at last the yoke carried by their forebears. We, the watching Hierarchy, commend their struggle, for we see it as the expression of the divine sparks in all men, yearning for freedom & justice. We give them our hand as we gaze with compassion on their plight.

There are those who would deny that all men have equal rights to a share of God's providence. Those who argue thus have listened only to the voice of the separated self, forgetting that naught that they have & hold but comes to them from God. When men take heed of the voice of God within them they find in sharing & justice the only answer to man's ills.

Today, more & more, that voice of the inner God is being heard. On all sides are arising spokesmen for the dispossessed. The clamor for justice is growing and soon will swell into a crescendo of sound, drowning out the cries for caution which issue from the representatives of the past.

How can there be two worlds when the world is One? How can there be division when the law is the same for all men?

Presently, men will understand that the suffering of the many is the illness of the whole, & that justice alone will provide the cure. Aid provides but half the answer, though aid is essential now. Justice must blossom fully in the garden of men's hearts & so set all men free.

Justice creates the conditions in which man can know himself as God. Linked to his brother by love, he can take boldly in his hands his future & fashion it according to the blueprint of God. Many desire that future now, blessed as they are with the vision of the whole, yet naught but work & effort will bring it into being, through the manifestation of justice, love & joy.

Remember as you move towards the future that no one takes these steps alone. As brothers, all, must men proceed along the pathway that leads directly to the source. From that very source does justice emanate, relating men in harmony & love.
