… 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. …

‘True Islam’ Key Against Terrorism: NU

Jakarta Globe, Anita Rachman, March 26, 2010

The country’s largest Islamic organization, the Nahdlatul Ulama, on Friday said that its clerics should help the fight against terrorism.

It also recommended that the government’s anti-terrorism desk, currently attached to a super ministry, be upgraded into a special body.

“Combating terrorism is about the cultural and ideological approach of NU clerics toward their followers in villages,” said Masykuri Abdillah, chief of the recommendations committee at the ongoing Nahdlatul Ulama’s national congress.

“It is our job to straighten out those who have been turned against or misguided about true Islam,” he added.

In battling terrorism, Islam must grow in line with the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah principle, or the words and deeds applied by Prophet Muhammad and his companions.

“The recommendation we’ve issued is not only to our government but to all parties across the nation, about safeguards for religion in Indonesia. Religion should never again be hijacked by terrorists or radicals,” Masykuri said.

He said combating terrorism was not only the job of the National Police’s anti-terrorism unit, Densus 88, but of clerics at every NU branch in the country.

“Jihad, in Arabic, is a noun that means ‘struggle.’ Jihad does not mean terrorism. Islam is not terrorism. Because terrorism hides behind the name of religion, NU would also like to recommend that the status of the government’s Anti-Terrorism Desk [at the Coordinating Ministry for Security, Political and Legal Affairs] be upgraded to that of a special body.”

That body, Masykuri said, should be occupied not only by law-enforcement officials, but by religious clerics as well.

“Cracking down on terrorism should be implemented via the cultural and ideological approach of the NU, aside from the tactics applied by anti-terrorism forces in the police,” he said.

Teachings by religious leaders should also broach the topic of what was the actual understanding of Shariah among their followers.

Masyhuri Na’im, deputy chairman of the NU legal advisory board, said that for some, the idea of implementing Shariah, in accordance with a very strict inter pretation of the religion, was ideal. “However, we have seen many times that it is not good,” he said.
