… 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. …

Even the President Gets a Little Caught Up in World Cup Frenzy

With the trophy on show in Jakarta, a little World Cup fever spread around the country on Tuesday.

As thousands of football fans flocked to the Jakarta Convention Center, even President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono took an interest, talking about football during a train ride to Cirebon, on Tuesday, and pledging to make Indonesia’s football team regionally competitive.

“All of us together with PSSI [the Indonesian Football Association] should do things right. We will revitalize and resurrect Indonesian football to take on Southeast Asia,” Yudhoyono told Metro TV.

If well-managed, the president said, the national team could make its mark in Southeast Asia within five years. Yudhoyono said he would meet Minister for Youth and Sports Affairs Andi Mallarangeng soon to discuss the matter.

He also suggested the unorthodox idea that the country should consider establishing three national teams to represent West, Central and East Indonesia.

Commenting on the president’s sudden burst of enthusiasm for the game, PSSI secretary general Nugraha Besoes, said this was unlikely to be linked with the country’s 2022 World Cup bid.

“It’s splendid that the president has paid attention to football in the middle of his duties,” Nugraha said. “But, I don’t see any tie between the president’s speech and the World Cup bidding process.”

PSSI is currently waiting for a guarantee letter from the government as part of administrative requirements in the bidding process. FIFA has set Feb. 9 as the deadline for the sending of the letter.

With or without the government guarantee letter, PSSI chairman Nurdin Halid said he would pursue the bid.

“We have to get through many stages in the bidding process, and one of the requirements is to provide the guarantee letter from the government,” Nurdin said. “We’ll continue to with the process, and if we fail, then we will accept it.”

But the government is unlikely to give its support to the PSSI bid, with the sports minister saying it would be better if Indonesia improved its national team first.

“If we can improve our team, then we can qualify for the World Cup, wherever it is,” he said.

When asked whether the president would sign the letter, Andi said, “An official support letter signed by the president is a major document. Before the president signs it, PSSI has to clarify everything first.”
