Justice as meditation in action.

Although I cannot even begin to guess at the
answer to the above, I can reflect on my own
realizations. Most of the time, I find myself
caught in the details of life, in a state that
does not characterize the action of meditating,
i.e. the constant pursuit of returning back
to the centre. In building justice around me,
I discover the continuous circle which draws
us to the center of humanity. So, with all this
meditation, there is a metaphor for how to
begin re-visioning the future. I am inspired
to continue advocating for restorative values
as the foundation for re-visioning. We strive,
not for a perfect solution, or a balanced
equation, but simply a justice that heals. (excerpt)
