… 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. …

Respected Journalist Slaps Down Bakrie Award

Jakarta Globe, June 22, 2010

Goenawan Mohamad, second from right, pictured here in 2004 alongside Aburizal Bakrie, far left, accepting his Bakrie Award. The respected journalist is today returning the award and is expected to hold a press conference to explain his reasons for doing so.

One of Indonesia’s most respected journalists, Goenawan Mohamad, is holding a news conference this afternoon to explain why he is returning his Bakrie Award, awarded by non-profit think-tank the Freedom Institute in 2004.

The former chief editor of Tempo magazine is also returning the Rp 100 million ($11,077) prize money he was awarded by the institute, established by controversial businessman and politician Aburizal Bakrie.

The institute’s Web site says the annual awards, established in 2003, are presented to “distinguished countrymen and women for their extraordinary achievements in the social sciences and literature.”

On his Twitter account @gm_gm, Goenawan, popularly known as GM, wrote: “Thank you for the best wishes and awards. I always think the best award is to have genuine friends. And you all are!”

Goenawan will send a delegation to return the award to the institute on Tuesday and then hold a news conference at the Teater Utan Kayu in East Jakarta to explain the reasons for his actions.

The senior journalist is the first person to return the award though Jesuit priest Franz Magnis Suseno, a respected social and political analyst, declined the award in 2007 because of the ongoing Lapindo Mudflow disaster.

A number of internationally respected scientists blame the disaster on PT Lapindo, a company under the umbrella of the Bakrie Group, which is controlled by the family of Aburizal Bakrie, chairman of the Golkar Party.

The company, however, has refused to accept blame.

Bakrie has more recently been labeled an enemy of reform by ousted former Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati.

Goenawan Mohamad, in this file photo, said that he was returning a Bakrie Award he received in 2004, due to what he called Aburizal Bakrie's manipulation and "political drama."
