… 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. …

Obama and First Family to Wear Sarongs for Borobudur Visit

Jakarta Globe, February 13, 2010

Ever imagined you would get to see the most powerful man in the world clad in a Javanese sarong, possibly even donning rubber sandals? A treat is definitely in store for those who have.

According to Central Java Governor Bibit Waluyo, sarongs will remain the order of the day for all visitors to Central Java’s famed Borobudur Temple, including US President Barack Obama, his wife, first lady, Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia.

“I have received information from the Foreign Ministry that the US President, his wife Michelle and two daughters are scheduled to visit Candi Borobudur on March 22. The [state] visit aside, even the US president’s family must follow the existing regulations applied within the confines of the temple,” Bibit said on Friday.

Purnomo Siswo Prasetyo, chief executive of PT Taman Wisata Candi Borobudur, Prambanan and Ratu Boko, the company that manages the temple site, confirmed Bibit’s statements, adding that the regulation mandating the donning of a sarong and rubber sandals had been put into effect on Feb. 1, and all those visiting the temple must respect the social and religious norms observed.

“I urge US President Obama, his family, and his entourage to please not wear shorts or miniskirts [for the ladies] or leather footwear. As long as one is inside the temple, it is mandatory that one wears a batik sarong and rubber sandals. The same rule applies for dignitaries from overseas. In fact, they should be the ones setting the example,” Purnomo told the Jakarta Globe.

“We have made the central government aware of these rules and all parties involved in the planning of the US president’s visit to Indonesia. We are relieved that they understand these rules and have no objections to following them.”

As previously reported, local worshippers have voiced serious concern over tourists revealing too much skin or wearing footwear, including high heels, that has ended up damaging the temple’s stonework. The temple was built around 800 AD and is believed to have taken about 75 years to construct.

“We keep getting complaints from locals upset about tourists who wear skimpy clothing at Borobudur,” Purnomo had said earlier. Candra Malik
