… 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. …

Letter to the editor: Statement from communications and information technology minister

The Jakarta Post, Wed, 06/23/2010 10:04 AM | Opinion

I would like to convey my reply to the headline published in The Jakarta Post on June 22, that I did not make a statement that degraded a religion.

On the morning of Thursday, June 17, a meeting was held at the Communications and Information Technology Ministry, attended by Press Council chairman Bagir Manan, Police Criminal Detective Agency deputy chief Dikdik Mulyana Arif Mansyur, Ramli from the Justice and Human Rights Ministry and a representative of the Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Ministry, for the purpose of appealing that Internet service providers minimize the spread of pornography on the Internet.

At the meeting I requested the police promptly conduct a thorough investigation of the pornographic video case so that news on people resembling each other in this case be clarified.

In this way, the public would no longer be confused. Without clear explanation, this issue will remain unresolved. And unless this story of resemblance is clarified on the basis of investigation by law enforcers, it will exhaust public energy while other no less important problems have yet to be given due attention by the whole nation.

In connection with such “resemblance”, without any pretension I mentioned to the forum a lesson from history, which has also become common knowledge, that Muslims are convinced Prophet Isa was not crucified, but it was a man resembling Prophet Isa who was crucified. Meanwhile, Christians are convinced that Jesus was crucified. Without any intention to involve the aspect of theology, I mentioned that this issue of resemblance had a long presence in history.

My statement is a historical fact, which is neutral and true. I have never linked the pornographic video case to the two religious figures.

Later, Rakyat Merdeka Online on June 17 posted an intriguing article titled “Eager to unveil Ariel, Tifatul implicates Prophet Isa and Jesus”, written by Zul Hidayat Siregar. But the article contained incomplete substance of my explanation at the meeting. Controversy intensified further following a public debate that was only based on the title of the article, without delving into its substance, with ample chance of giving rise to misunderstanding in society.

I thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience. This will hopefully serve as a valuable lesson for all parties, including myself.

Tifatul Sembiring
