11 The Innate Faith In Justice

Besides the fear of the "wrath" or "vengeance" of God, and in addition to the desire for "mercy", there is in man a faith that somewhere in the world, notwithstanding all the seeming injustice, there is, though unseen and not understood, adjustment and justice.

This inherent faith in justice is self-existent in the doer of man.

It blossomed when the aia was raised to be a Triune Self. But to evoke this faith it requires some crisis in which man is thrown upon himself by the seeming injustice of others. The faith in justice is part of the intuition of immortality, which persists in the heart of man despite his agnosticism and materialism, and adverse conditions which harden him.

The intuition of immortality is the underlying knowledge that the doer comes into being in the Eternal, not in time; that it has fallen into time; that man is able to live and will live through the seeming injustice that is imposed upon him; and that he will live to right the wrongs which he has done.

The idea of justice, innate in the heart of man, is the one thing which saves him from cringing for the favor of a wrathful god.

The idea of justice causes a man to look fearlessly into another's eye, even though he may be conscious that he must suffer for a wrong he has done. The fear of the wrath and vengeance of God, the desire for mercy, faith in the eternal justice of things, these are evidences of the doer's recognition of the destiny of humanity.
