And in the knowledge of justice, the love of it
and in the love of it, the love of all Existences.
and in the Love of all Existences, the love of God and all Goodness
I would have liked to enter this discussion earlier, but it's been a very busey time.
After some reflection on the meanings of "the love of god" and some insights to the way Justice is mentioned in the Druid's prayer, I see a very humble but explosive passion for life. I do not see the love of all existence meaning "to forgive" or "human passion".
IMO the term Justice refers to the balance of nature's law, and the embrace of our earth mother (mother earth). I see justice in this use as meaning nothing about "law" in the human legal sense.
In the love of Justice is acceptance. Acceptance for who we are, our fate and our own responsibility to ourselves balanced with our understanding of all we know.
The "Love" of justice means the true birth of this from within our own spirit and soul. I see this also because of how "love" is used in the very next line. The love of God/dess is truly a rebirth. The love of God is often considered the highest form of love. It is IMO the embodiment of spirituality and faith in God/dess. In the love of god/dess then we have the understanding and love of all creation. This of course includes "all goodness" and the divine.
I have found the Druid prayer is deeply steeped in spiritual lore. The meanings can be viewed simply, as legal and compassion. But I feel Lolo meant much more and was no simple man. The relationships weave in the druid prayer like a Celtic knot. Each line flowing through and interlaced with the next.
That's how I have found it to work for me
