… 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. …

Indonesian Muslim Leaders Welcome Obama Visit

A far cry from 2006, when thousands took to the streets to protest George W. Bush’s half-day visit to Bogor, Indonesian Muslim organizations have welcomed the scheduled state visit by US President Barack Obama in March.

Even the notoriously anti-Western Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) appear to be caught up in “Obamania,” with one senior member saying that they welcome any visitor as long as they are not here on a “neo-liberal mission.”

Senior Muslim leaders said that Obama’s visit would help improve relations between the US and the Islamic world.

“Obama’s visit is good for Indonesia because Obama is offering to heal relations between the US and Muslim world after the tensions experienced during the George Bush-era,” Hasyim Muzadi, chairman of Nahdlatul Ulama, was quoted as saying by the state-run Antara news agency late on Saturday.

“As the president of the US, a democratic country, he plays a major but not encompassing role, as there is a legislative body limiting his steps,” he said.

Muhammadiyah Chairman Dien Syamsuddin said that Indonesians should welcome Obama, who had shown “his good will to develop ties with the Islamic world.”

“We don’t have to reject Obama’s visit. We can use the momentum to express the aspirations of Indonesian Muslims as the eyes of the world will be on us when he is here,” he said on Sunday.

Embong Mustafa, a senior FPI member, said his organization also welcomed Obama’s visit and he would even be willing to meet the US president if invited.

“We have no problem with Barack Obama’s visit. We’ve never rejected anybody planning to come here except those on a neoliberal mission,” he said.

However, Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a conservative Muslim group that supports the development of a global pan-Islamic state, plans to stage a protest against Obama, saying he is “a bad guest.”

“[Bali bomber] Imam Samudera, who killed many foreigners, was considered a terrorist. Why don’t we consider Obama, who has destroyed Islamic countries, a terrorist? It is true that he is a guest, but he is a bad one as he killed our brothers and sisters,” said Ismail Yusanto, a Hizbut Tahrir spokesman.
