… 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. …

SBY Stays Neutral in Simmering Dispute Over State of Indonesian Football

Malang, East Java. Putting politics and the economy aside for the moment, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Tuesday made time to open the National Football Congress, calling on all to unite and work to lift the nation’s lackluster football performance .

But Yudhoyono stopped short of lending his voice to the growing calls for the Indonesian Football Association (PSSI) to be revamped and its chairman, Nurdin Halid, replaced.

“Do we have faith that we can regain our greatness in the region? Yes, we have. And in order to achieve that, we have to unite in the national movement for national football,” Yudhoyono told the congress at the Ken Arok Sports Hall in Malang. “I also want to see a comprehensive evaluation in PSSI. We want to help PSSI so our team can perform better at the international level.”

Yudhoyono said the country was not lacking in human resources and talent — all it needed was for everyone to unite and work t ogether.

Last year was not a good one for Indonesian football. The national side failed to qualify for the 2011 Asian Cup and suffered an ignominious loss to Laos in the SEA Games, while PSSI failed dismally in its bid to host the 2020 World Cup in the absence of official government backing.

Yudhoyono said he hoped the national team would lift regional trophies in the near future.

“I want to see our team become a regional champion in five years and taking Asian titles in 10 years,” he said.

Minister of Youth and Sports Andi Malarangeng said he viewed the president’s statement as a push for a complete rethink at PSSI.

“When he said he wanted evaluation in PSSI, it means total overhaul, including a new chairman and officials,” Andi said.

But Nurdin, who has been under fire for having failed to improve standards after seven years in office, begged to differ.

“The president didn’t say Nurdin Halid must step down or PSSI must hold an election. I saw his speech as support,” he said.

“Don’t make false interpretations and prejudice” he said, adding that only PSSI members have the right to ask for elections and an extraordinary congress.

Indonesian National Sports Committee (KONI) chairwoman Rita Subowo said the PSSI had yet to comply with a FIFA statute that requires the president, vice presidents and executive committee members not to have been found guilty in any criminal case. Nurdin was sentenced to 30 months in jail for illegally importing rice in 2005.

Yudhoyono later watched Arema Malang beat Persitara North Jakarta 2-0 in an Indonesian Super League match at the Kanjuruhan Stadium.

The congress is expected to come out with a recommendation on how to improve the country’s football performance today.
