… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Private mapmaker suspected in border blunder

The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Sat, 02/14/2009 10:18 AM 

Miangas Island - Let's go to School (indira 's Site)

Foreign Minister Hassan Wirajuda has brushed off rumors of a takeover of Indonesia’s northernmost island of Miangas by the Philippines, saying Manila was fully aware Miangas was Indonesian territory. 

“Making a fuss about Miangas Island is a waste of time. The Philippine government has not even officially claimed anything yet,” Hassan said Saturday as quoted by Antara news agency. 

He was responding to a map published recently by the Philippine Tourism Authority, which showed Indonesia’s outermost island as falling under the jurisdiction of the Philippines. 

The small island, called Las Palmas in Spanish, has an area of around 3.15 square kilometers and a population of 680. 

Geographically, Miangas is closer to the Philippines than to Indonesia — 77 kilometers away from the former and 232 kilometers away from the latter. 

Foreign Ministry spokesman Teuku Faizasyah told The Jakarta Post a private sector error might be to blame for the controversy. 

“We don’t think the Philippine government has any formal intention of making Miangas Island their property. They probably entrusted the mapmaking task to a private company that was not aware of official borders,” he said. 

He added that because Miangas used to belong to the Dutch colonial authorities, it became Indonesia territory after independence. 

“In 1976, the Philippine government signed an extradition treaty with Indonesia, stipulating that Miangas belonged to the latter,” Teuku said. 

Navy Chief Admiral Tedjo Edhy Purdijatno said earlier this week the Philippine government had claimed Miangas as its own, and that it had gone as far as seeking a UN ruling on the matter, based on the UN’s Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). 

However, Teuku said the matter had never been raised at bilateral talks between the two countries. 

He added the Foreign Ministry would investigate the map matter through the Indonesian Consulate General in Davao City. 

“We will not yet hold bilateral talks on the island. However, we will find out who’s responsible for this and demand clarification,” he said.
