Justice Is Highly Overated

It seems to me that our concept of justice is not the great thing we make it out to be.

If one considers that the idea of an 'eye for an eye' carried over many lifetimes is a never ending cycle.

It is not through 'justice' that anything is resolved. It is only through forgiveness that the cycle of cause and effect [karma] can be released.


I prefer the word, "release" to the concept of forgiveness. The later is a loaded word, implying to many that someone's going to get away with something, even though forgiveness does in the end, release the one who holds angst for the perpetrator. However, I belief that it's simply a shorter route to get there through the process of...releasing.
