… 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. …

Catholic child abuse scandal extends to Curaçao

Radio Netherlands Worldwide, 13 April 2010 - 2:04pm

A 57-year-old Antillean man living in the Netherlands has said he was subjected to sexual abuse by two priests as a child on the island of Curaçao.

The two were members of the Tilburg Fathers, the same Roman Catholic order which has been accused in the Netherlands in connection with the sexual abuse of mentally-disabled boys at an institution in the southern town of Boxtel.


The Antillean told Radio Netherlands Worldwide and daily NRC Handelsblad that when he was living at a Roman Catholic boarding school in Soto, Curaçao, he was fondled almost weekly. "It happened in the room of one of the priests," Johnny (whose real name is known to RNW) recalled. "You had to undo your pants and he would fondle your penis. The first time that happens, you are shocked. The second time you hardly dare to enter the room, because you know what is going to happen."

The head of the Don Sarto school in Soto, another Tilburg Father, was also guilty of abuse, Johnny claims. "I was even fondled at school, but then all pupils were. Even those who were not at the boarding school." Johnny says that he was also physically abused by another priest.

Father Broer Huitema, the General Superior of the Tilburg Fathers, said he is not familiar with Johnny's story, but would like to meet him. "In general I can say that I am more than prepared to have a talk with the victim."

Priests in outposts

In the past priests who were guilty of sex abuse in the Netherlands were transferred, sometimes abroad, Father Huitema said. "They were put into different positions, away from children. They were given an administrative post or were sent out as missionaries. In those days the cases were not reported to the police. The parents were not contacted either."

In the 1960 some 70 members of the congregation were posted on the Netherlands Antilles. Until the end of 1995 they were teaching on the Antilles, in Surinam and in Indonesia.


The Tilburg Fathers were repeatedly accused over the past few weeks. Since the end of February, 36 people told Radio Netherlands Worldwide and NRC Handelsblad about being abused by 44 Tilburg Fathers in schools, boarding schools and orphanages, including the Ruwenberg House in the town of St.Michielsgestel and the St. Nicolaas Institute in Oss. Former group leaders say the priests assaulted pupils of the De La Salle institute for mentally retarded and handicapped boys in the southern town of Boxtel.

General Superior Huitema said the reports of sexual abuse are "revolting", particularly because "our work is directed towards children who are disadvantaged to begin with. The abuse of power, both phycsically and sexually, only adds to the misery."
