Justice is a universal rule that holds the whole Universe, every system within the Universe and every part of each system, in balance and harmony. Justice is the foundation for the survival of everything from a single cell to the Whole. When a virus infects one cell of our body, this unfortunate association and combination harms the entire body by disrupting the functioning of the system of the body - a system that has been set wisely by the universal intelligence and justice. Indeed, the infected body will react to eliminate the virus, strive to survive, and bring the body back into a state of balance and harmony. When society is overwhelmed by greed for luxury and by the unfair distribution of wealth, that society is off balance. It is a system running without virtue and it offers no ready ground for justice. In this case, greed will register in the practice of both science and religion. That is the illness of our time in every part of the world. To heal this serious illness is the duty of those rich in spirit with the wealth of virtue, which indeed is most powerful.
