… 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. …

Surabaya installs first woman mayor

Tri Rismaharini was installed as Surabaya’s Mayor by East Java Governor Soekarwo on Tuesday and became the first woman to lead the country’s second largest city.

Tri Rismaharini and Bambang Dwi won Surabaya’s mayoral race in August, after the Constitutional Court ordered a repeat of June’s election, citing massive and systemic voting offenses.

Risma’s ticket, which was backed by the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), won 40.8 percent of the vote in the repeat election, ahead of Arif Afandi and Adies Kadir, who secured 36.5 percent. Risma’s campaign also won the June polls.

Outside the installation ceremony at the Surabaya Legislative Council building, students staged a rally demanding Risma uphold her promises, such as increasing the city’s green space.

The ceremony was attended by Arif, city councilors, community leaders and representatives from the Japanese and French consulates.

Speaking at the ceremony, Soekarwo told the new administration to fulfill their campaign promises and said they must maintain harmony with all parties and support each other for a successful five-year leadership.

“Otherwise, programs will be left unfinished and development not implemented as well as it can be,” he said.

The governor told Risma to base her policies on the public interest. Slightly misleading policies could turn families deemed “almost poor” into “poor” families, he added.

City Legislative Council Speaker Wishnu Wardhana said he hoped the new administration would make Surabaya a better city through humane and planned development programs.

“There is much work awaiting the new mayor and deputy mayor, such as in the fields of education, health and infrastructure,” he said.

Wishnu said development of the city’s eastern ring road, which connected Suramadu Bridge and Juanda International Airport, should be finished quickly to accelerate the city’s economy.

During the campaign, Risma promised to develop Surabaya through clean water distribution, controlling flooding through open space management, subsidizing housing for the poor and developing mass transportation.

Risma, who previously led the city’s Cleanliness Agency and its Development Planning Agency, has been praised for making Surabaya a greener city through reforestation programs and building several new parks in the city. She also vowed to involve Surabayans in the creation of a clean and healthy environment.

The most daunting task for the mayor is eradicating poverty for the city’s 110,117 economically poor families, which include 12,558 extremely poor, 47,065 poor and 50,494 almost poor families.
