… 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. …

Maritime Event Puts Focus on Maluku's Tarnished Attractions

Jakarta Globe, March 20, 2010

Ambon, Maluku. In August, thousands of people from throughout the country and abroad will descend on Ambon for Sail Banda 2010, an international maritime event aimed at showcasing the beauty of eastern Indonesia.

But once they get there, visitors will find a number of the province’s historic sites, particularly on Saparua Island in Central Maluku, in poor condition.

“In the run-up to the international maritime event Sail Banda 2010, I call on the local committee to restore the historic sites on Saparua Island,” said Alex Litaay, a House of Representatives member from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) who is from Maluku.

He said on Friday the deserted historic sites on Saparua were in need of serious management to restore them and maintain them as valuable tourist attractions.

“I have a deep concern about the present condition of historic sites such as Fort Duurstede and the Pattimura diorama on Saparua because they are in deplorable condition and on the verge of total collapse,” Alex said.

He said the diorama of national hero Pattimura located in front of Fort Duurstede was without electricity so that visitors could not see the collection of items that once belonged to the Ambonese freedom fighter, also known as Thomas Matulessy, and other heroes.

“I plan to tour Saparua to check the current condition of all historic sites on the island and then report on it to Governor Karel Albert Ralahalu,” Alex said.

He said Fort Duurstede and the Pattimura diorama were the silent witnesses of the first battle between Maluku freedom fighters and Dutch colonial troops on Saparua in May 1817.

A spokeswoman for the Maluku Culture and Tourism Office, Florence Sahusilawane, agreed the historic sites on Saparua were in a state of neglect.

“It is true that the historic sites there are in critical condition, but the reason for this is the inadequate amount of funding allocated to have the sites renovated,” Florence said.

She said she had repeatedly asked Saparaua subdistrict head Ferry Siahaya to propose funds for the renovation of the historic sites, but the call seemed to have been ignored.

Sail Banda 2010 will be held from July 24 to Aug. 17, with the main event to be held on Aug. 3 in the city of Ambon. It will feature seven conferences and a yacht race from Darwin, Australia, as well as a display of ships from the Indonesian Army, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand and the United States.
