Given yesterday’s discussion of fairness and the importance of having an agreed-upon set of principles to steer by, let me add an earlier discussion to the “social principles” mix. Hmmmm…. That’d make a good book….
Fairness: A Standard to Live By
August 9, 2013
The arrival of the global currency reset, the prosperity packages, etc., when they come, will mark the first step in the eventual arrival of G/NESARA. (1)
Before that time arrives, I’d like to establish a few terms as elements of common discourse between us.
No term would be more valuable to establish than a common notion of “fairness.” Let me explain why.
After the first wave of of what is eventually to become global prosperity hits us, there’ll be increased activity, increased felt need, and increased complexity in our lives. I predict that the impact of the reval alone will reverberate throughout the lightworker community.
At least that’s my opinion from where I sit.
And I believe that we’ll need common standards to provide an agreed-upon floor below which we won’t allow our conduct and discourse to go.
I recommend fairness as that common standard.
Fairness occupies a special place in my heart. Let me first state my notion of fairness and then relate the events that made it such an important concept to me.
Fairness for me means an equitable arrangement, one that is seen and felt to be equitable by all parties.
My respect for fairness as a standard of conduct stems from the last job I had before I “retired.” (Wry laugh.)
I was tasked with deciding the fate of people claiming to be refugees to my country. I fell in love with the notion of fairness that prevailed in the Canadian legal community at that time and bound all judges and adjudicators.
When I first contemplated stepping into that hearing room and representing the Canadian people to the person before me – representing their compassion, humaneness, and justice – I was completely captivated. I so wanted that job. Member of the Immigration and Refugee Board. Mmmm…. Wanted it.
When I got it and before I entered the hearing room for the first time, my wife gave me a small set of brass scales (shown above). In my mind, I used to put that set of scales between me and the claimant and later between me and anyone. I made it a point of always looking through the filter of fairness that that set of scales represented for me.
In my hearing room, all parties – claimant, translator, claimant’s lawyer, IRB lawyer, federal courts, the people of Canada – had to see what emerged as fair to all.
I had to be equitable to all and to be seen to be equitable to all.
Everything that transpired needed to be clearly stated and on the record. Any ruling or decision was itself reviewable by the federal courts. In those days they were honest; I hope they still are.
My biggest discovery during those years was that life in such complex surroundings became simple for me when I surrendered to fairness.
Fairness did not need to look a certain way. It wasn’t just fairness to whites or fairness to Christians or fairness to men. It was universally applicable.
If my predominant concern was fairness, I could not go wrong even if I went wrong. There was never any discrimination to protest – perhaps a mistake.
I looked upon fairness as being our anchor, our lifeline in a storm. Was the discussion fair? Was the decision fair to all parties?
I can’t tell you what a growth-oriented experience that job was for me. I learned as much as anybody from it. It was the busiest job I ever had, but also the most challenging and satisfying.
OK. To return to us, that’s how it could be for us as a lightworker community as well. We too could embrace fairness in all our dealings and communications.
I look forward to having the kind of mature, adult conversations that the prospect of the arrival of a modicum of ease will make possible for us, conversations that we wouldn’t mind recording and allowing to be adjudged by our peers.
To do so, I highly recommend that we have between us an agreed-upon standard to which we can refer all matters of disagreement and dispute and I recommend that that standard be fairness.
