Ruth Bader Ginsberg: Showing the Way
There is a burgeoning awareness, for those of us practicing Mindfulness, of social justice and diversity issues, and how we can play our parts. We salute the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg (RBG as she was known) in the US on Friday, the Supreme Court Justice, who led the way for so many, especially in womens’ issues, and hope to be mindful of her lead in continuing in the quest for equality and fairness.
Mindfulness is about compassion and awareness, and the search inside ourselves for subliminal biases we now recognize were installed by predecessors who responded to the standard biases of their time, but has impeded the exercising of compassion and equality by us, their descendants. With awareness, we can note our biases, improve and make a better world.
RBG, an extraordinary leader, will live on in the hearts of so many.
