… 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. …

Ruins of Ancient Temple Found in Yogyakarta

The ruins of an ancient building discovered at the Indonesian Islamic University in Yogyakarta have been confirmed as a temple to worship the Hindu gods Shiva and Ganesha.

Linga, the symbol for the worship of Shiva, and yoni, a Sanskrit symbol for divine passage or place of birth, were found in the area, said archaeologists at the Yogyakarta Antiquities and Relics Conservation Agency yesterday.

“So much evidence indicating the relics to be genuine has been found,” said head of the excavation team Indung Panca Putra. “The first discovery was the Ganesha statue on December 21, while the yoni was found on Tuesday. The identity of the relic being a Hindu temple was reinforced by the fact that it faced East,” he said.

“We don’t know yet the exact dimensions of the statue, the ornaments that go with the Ganesha statue, and the linga and yoni. Ganesha is believed to be a war god as well as the god of education. Linga and yoni are the symbols of man and woman. They are the sacred form of male and female genitals. Linga and yoni are the symbol of the god Shiva in Hindu teaching,” Indung said.

The statue’s outer surface was yellowed having been buried for centuries.

It is expected that more statues will be found within the temple complex.

“Based on Hindu mythology, temples are built in the following sequence: temple fence, gate, then the statue of the Lord Shiva, represented in this complex with the presence of the linga and yoni. Shiva is always flanked by Durga. So we predict that other statues will be found,” Indung said.

The Ganesha statue is simply carved, he said.

“It is also small in size. It is assumed that this is because the sculptor of the discovered temple was less skilled than the one who built the Prambanan Temple,” Indung said.

“The Ganesha of Prambanan wears a crown, whereas the one here has no crown,” he added.

Until Wednesday, the team, consisting of 20 diggers, four archaeologists and four engineers, had been digging to discover other statues commonly found in similar temples.

“The excavation will work until Jan. 4. We believe there are more relics and structures that will be found,” Indung said.

For security reasons, the campus has installed a fence which surrounds the dig site.

The archaeological find is considered vulnerable to thefts, considering the historical value of the temple, particularly the statue of Ganesha, which has a high commercial value.
