… 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. …

Understanding one`s own religion helps maintain inter-religious harmony

Antara News, Thursday, September 23, 2010 19:44 WIB

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - A senior people`s welfare official said understanding the theological basis of one`s own religion could help maintain inter-religious harmony in society.

"Basically every religion teaches peace and solidarity to its followers. Even in Islam, people are urged to respect and do good to others," Dyihabuddin, deputy for education, religious and state administrative affairs to the Coordinating Minister for People`s Welfare, said here Thursday.

Speaking at a discussion on how to maintain inter-religious harmony, Syihabuddin said interfaith tolerance in society would come naturally when people really understand and implemented the basis of their own religion.

Apart from a good grasp of the theological basis of one`s own religion. people should also have a multicultural understanding to keep inter-religious harmony. Multicultural understanding would allow people to respect the uniqueness of their fellow human beings and not negatively differentiate them based on race, culture, sex or status in the society.

"A multicultural understanding will allow people to participate in activities outside their own ethnic or cultural backgrounds," he added.

On the same occasion, Abdurahman Mas`ud , head of Religious Affairs Ministry`s Religious Life Research and Development Center, said empowering people and religious organizations could be a strategy to keep inter-religious harmony.

He said since 2009, the government had established an organization named Forum for Inter-Religious Harmony (FKUB) made up of people from different religious organizations.

The forum was set up in all of Indonesia`s 33 provinces and tasked with holding dialogue with prominent figures and religious leaders, listen to the aspirations of members of religious organizations and recommend them to the government.

FKUB was also authorized to familiarize the public with government regulations on inter-religious relations and give recommendations for the establishment of new houses of worship in any given district or city.

"FKUB is expected to assist the government to maintain inter-religious relations in Indonesia," Abdurrahman said.
