… 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. …

Papuan Priest Is Recognized for His Work in the Name of Human Rights

The Jakarta Globe

Papuan priest Yohanes Jonga has been named the recipient of the 2009 Yap Thiam Hien Award, the country’s most prestigious human rights accolade, for his fearless struggles in the troubled province, the organizing committee said.

“The priest deserves to win the award because he has fearlessly fought for the rights of local people in Papua,” Todung Mulya Lubis, one of the five judges, was quoted by as saying on Monday. “In fact, he has received repeated death threats and has several times been threatened with being buried alive,” Todung said of the priest, who works in Keerom district.

Because of Jonga’s dogged efforts in defense of the human rights of Papuans, he has been accused of being a sympathizer of the secessionist Free Papua Movement (OPM). He also has been given the nickname “women priest” for defending the rights of women in the area.

“[Despite all these threats and insults], he has continued fighting for local people’s basic rights,” Todung said, adding that Jonga had obviously gone above and beyond his duties as a priest.

Todung acknowledged that fighting for human rights in Papua was not an easy task. “Most people there lack education and women are powerless,” he said.

Named after the late Chinese-Indonesian activist Yap Thiam Hien, the annual award is given out by the Human Rights Study Center Foundation to those who contribute to the advancement of human rights in the country.

Since its establishment in 1992, winners have come from a wide range of backgrounds including labor activists, rights groups, farmers and a journalist.

Last year’s winner was Siti Musdah Mulia, an activist fighting for pluralism and the rights of women in Islam.

In addition to Todung, this year’s panel of judges included legal expert Harkristuti Harkrisnowo, journalist Maria Hartiningsih, Ifdal Kasim, the chairman of the National Commission on Human Rights, and activist Rahlan Nasidik. The award will be officially presented on Dec. 10 in Jakarta.

Todung also said the judges had selected the late Fauzi Abdullah, an activist who dedicated his life to fighting for labor rights, as recipient of the life-time achievement award.

“Fauzi played a significant role in developing the labor movement here,” Todung said. “He was a typical human rights fighter. He shied away from media publicity and was a humble figure.”
