Love makes the world go round; no doubt about that. But fairness makes it work.
There’s a well-known book by Robert Fulghum entitled All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. In it the author lists several practices that allow us to get along with others and flourish in our joint enterprises:
- Share everything.
- Play fair.
- Don’t hit people.
- Put things back where you found them.
- Clean up your own mess.
- Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
- Say you’re sorry when you hurt somebody. (1)
I would add to this list:
- take turns and
- first come, first served.
The essential element in each of these is fairness. If one violates any of these dicta, one is said to be acting unfairly towards another.
A well-developed sense of fairness leads to respect for others, yielding place when appropriate, reducing tension in society, and inviting cooperation.
I actually think people have a nose for fairness. There are many qualities that endear one person to another – generosity, compassion, loving-kindness. But there is only quality that has people relax around each other and that, for me, is fairness.
It’s clear to me that people are marching around the world for equitable distribution and sharing, respect for the rights of all people, equal treatment for both genders, etc. All of these boil down to fairness.
The golden rule itself, that we should do unto others as we would have others do unto us, results in fairness. Unitive consciousness, the awareness that we are all one, also produces fairness.
Fairness puts no one ahead of another and no one behind. It leaves all equal, whether in having or in having not. Fairness is no respecter of persons. It isn’t venal or corrupt. The ultimate in fairness is the ultimate in purity. Perfection and fairness, I think, occupy the same ground. Fairness and justice are one.
Synonyms are even-handedness, balance, equitability. Fairness is moderate, centering, peaceful. It dissolves the ego and provides fertile ground for the emergence of the higher qualities in a person.
But why don’t we test the matter out by seeing what ascended beings of higher dimensions, on the verge of introducing themselves to us, say about it?
Many of the changes the galactics will usher in have as their aim the restoration of fairness. For instance. SaLuSa says that “there will be changes in your laws so that justice can be seen to be operating in a fair manner.” (2)
There may be some unpleasantness to come but that’s merely to bring about a fairer situation for the people of the world. Matthew tells us this is true of economic matters: “The collapse of the global economy is making way for the new foundation based in fairness, honesty and integrity.” (3)
“Wise, spiritually evolved men and women are ready to assume leadership positions and structures are in place for new governments, banking systems, fair laws, and assistance to impoverished countries.” (4)
“Plans based in darkness will not come to fruition and all cruel and unjust laws, policies and traditions will be struck down and in their stead, love and fairness will reign.” (5)
Preparing for Ascension requires us to move from general unfairness to fairness, as Matthew tells us:
“Absorbing light requires ones at the negative end of duality to change from violence to peacefulness, from greed to generosity, corruption to honor, unjustness to fairness, anger to reason, oppression to freedom.” (6)
What distinguishes the laws of nature from the laws of humanity is their inherent fairness, SaLuSa says: “The Laws of the Universe apply and these are not draconian like many of Man’s, but both fair and just to aid your spiritual advancement.“ (7)
The higher dimensions are higher in part because they’re inherently fair, Matthew informs us here:
“Please dismiss concerns about any current or proposed laws, bills, doctrines, customs, policies, treaties or procedures that are based in unfairness or unjustness or present harm to mind, body or spirit. Like everything else in your world that derives from darkness, those will end incrementally along Earth’s journey to fourth density, where no darkness can exist.” (8)
Therefore the Company of Light also sees fairness playing a central role in creating a world that works. The quality of fairness lasts into the higher dimensions. In my personal opinion, fairness is a quality capable of finer and finer distinctions and deeper and deeper profundity. I think that no quality will figure more in our quest to create a world that works for everyone, with no one left out, than the quality of fairness.
