Libra Festival Meditation Meeting London

Libra is a sign of balancing, of careful weighing of values, and of achieving the right equilibrium between the pairs of opposites through the right utilisation of the balancing, analytical faculty of mind.

Libra governs the legal profession and holds the balances between so-called right and wrong, between negative and positive. Libra has been the "sponsor of the law". The law must become the custodian of a positive righteousness and not simply the instrument of enforcement. Just as we are attempting to eliminate force out of our national relationships, and just as it is obvious today that the process of drastic penalties has not succeeded in preventing crime or in deterring people from violent selfishness (for that is what all crime is), and just as the social attitude (in contradistinction to the anti-social position of all law-breakers) is being regarded as desirable and taught in our schools, so it is beginning to dawn upon the public consciousness that the inculcation of right relations and the spread of self-control and the growth of unselfishness (and these surely are the goal, subjective and oft unrealised, of all legal procedure) are the needed approach to the young. The key for growth is the cultivation of harmlessness. Harmlessness is not negativity or inaction; it is a condition of "perfect poise, a completed point of view and divine understanding".
