“To begin, in defining justice, I am inspired by advocates like King and Ghandi. Martin Luther King Jr said “Justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” We find this power of love through recognising that we are all, without exception, vulnerable to suffering and all part of one human family. As a family, we each have responsibility for minimising that suffering and for attending to each other’s wellbeing. When they saw organised power standing against the wellbeing of other people, King and other advocates for justice throughout human history, sought to raise our consciousness about the responsibility we all have to try to oppose this, and to minimise this unnecessary suffering.”
“The old world is gone and the new one is not yet here. It’s chaotic and of course our temptation is simply to distract ourselves from the pain and confusion. I find I am busier than ever before but slowly I am seeing that is a choice. What I have also chosen is to re-birth how I offer myself to the world and that has meant embracing the fact I work in the intersection of law and spirituality. I am here to work with Awakening Lawyers: [n. pl] lawyers on a spiritual journey, helping the new legal system emerge by being peacemakers, justice warriors and activists for social change.”
