Equanimity, Equality and Justice
Think of equality as scales.
Scales themselves are impartial, not human.
Yet they hold value and evaluate value.
What gives it value is either the one who observes it or what is inherent as what is being weighed.
True that regardless of what it is on the scale, it has value.
More or less value is determined by the evaluator, the judge.
If we have two parts to one whole on each side of the scale, for simplicity an example one side is black, the other is white, which holds more value?
Consider first I said Whole divided into parts.
One on each side.
To put them on each side, they both sum to make a whole. (Yes, each part is whole but let's stay simple for this).
Now we need both to make whole.
What has the greatest value?
Does that exist in this case? One more valuable than the other?
For it to be whole it needs both.
Now think about how we as a culture value each other, parts of the whole. The body of Spirit.
Any one value more than the other?
We tend to think that. But does that make it true?
What about our "side" of a story?
What about the conscious and unconscious side of our story?
What about what we project as disowned and "not ours"?
What if to be made whole one must reabsorb and own any projections? If the projection is white, to become whole one must equalize the part within the whole...see the white as coming from within and let the white become them also.

Are we made equals?
