… 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. …

Muslim organizations to celebrate Idul Fitri on same date

Antara News, Sunday, September 5, 2010 02:52 WIB

Yogyakarta (ANTARA News) - The Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI) expects mainstream Islamic organizations to celebrate Idul Fitri, the festive day marking the end of the fasting month, on the same date.

Secretary of MUI-Yogyakarta Chapter Ahmad Muhsin Kamaludiningrat said the majority of Indonesian Muslims had started the fasting month of Ramadan on the same day.

They were also expected to celebrate Idul Fitri on the same day, he said.

"Insya Allah (God willing), there will be no different dates for the Idul Fitri celebration," he said.

Indonesia`s two largest Islamic organizations, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) and Muhammadiyah, observed the same date as the government despite different methods of calculating the start of Ramadan.

If Muhammadiyah depends on astronomical calculations, NU refers to the sighting of the new moon called rukyah.

The NU and Muhammadiyah followers started the first day of Ramadan on August 11.
In the Islamic calendar, Ramadan is the ninth month. During the sacred month, fasting Muslims are not allowed to eat, drink, have sex with married spouses, and do any other forbidden activity from dawn until sunset.

After a month-long fasting, Muslims in Indonesia and other parts of the world celebrate the end of Ramadan festivities commonly called the Idul Fitri.

A part from the undecided date of Idul Fitri, NU Chairman KH Said Aqil Siradj has called on Indonesian Muslims to celebrate the festivities next week in simple or modest ways.

Through a simple life style, Muslims could help one another, especially the less fortunate brothers and sisters in Islam, he told people attending an NU-organized fast breaking event here.

"According to Islam, the essence of Idul Fitri is not substantiated by new material things but by an effort to bring one`s self closer to God," he said.

Siradj also called on Indonesian Muslims to strengthen and maintain brotherhood by visiting family members, relatives, and friends.

This tradition was necessary to create peaceful and caring lives, and also would enable Muslims to get rid of social disintegration and the spirit of individualism, he said.

In celebrating the end of the Ramadan fasting month, solidarity among Muslims and among Indonesians as one nation was highly recommended, he said.

"With these efforts, our national integrity as a nation will remain strong and Indonesia becomes a peaceful and secure nation," he said.
