… 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. …

Gus Dur to Receive National Hero Honors: E. Java Official

Jakarta Globe, Amir Tejo & Candra Malik | October 05, 2010       

Jakarta. The government will soon declare late President Abdurrahman “Gus Dur” Wahid a national hero in response to widespread demand from the people of East Java.

Deputy Governor Syaifullah Yusuf said he had received verbal notification from the Ministry of Social Affairs and was now waiting for the formal letter to be issued as the province plans to officially announce the honor on National Heroes day on Nov. 10.

Gus Dur, much noted for his efforts in promoting pluralism in the country, was born in Jombang district, East Java.

“We are waiting for the president to sign the letter to be handed over in time for National Heroes day,” Syaifullah said. “We thank the government for its prompt response to our request.”

There were many spontaneous appeals to the government to grant Gus Dur the honor after he passed away in December.

However, Gus Dur’s family said it had not been notified by the government of the plan to declare him a hero.

“Our family has never proposed anything to the government to honor Gus Dur in any form. We did not request the government to renovate his grave, nor did we ask for a national hero title,” Annita Hayatunnufus, Gus Dur’s third daughter, told the Jakarta Globe.

The family said it would wait for formal notification before responding.

In addition to the national honor, the provincial government is planning to renovate the former president’s burial site by widening the access road to allow more visitors.

About 8,000 visitors make their way to the tomb for weekend pilgrimages, with 4,000 more coming during the week, according to provincial government data.

Gus Dur, known as a champion of democracy and moderate Islam, died at the age of 69.

He was Indonesia’s fourth president and was the first elected head of state after the fall of the Suharto regime in 1998.

Educated in Indonesia, Egypt, Iraq and Canada, Gus Dur had a reputation for religious tolerance and moderate politics.

Aside from his prominent political role, he was also leader of Nahdlatul Ulama, a Muslim organization with about 40 million members and one of the largest independent Islamic organizations in the world.
