… 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. …

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Former foreign affairs minister Alwi Shihab said he considered Rosihan Anwar as a journalist who dared to voice the truth and had strong principles.

"Rosihan dared to say the truth amidst threats. Despite the changing political dynamism, he was always in the front line in voicing the truth," he said after paying his last respects to the late Rosihan at Menteng , Central Jakarta, Thursday.

Rosihan was a very productive and idealistic journalist, Alwi said, adding that he had continued to produce his works despite his old age.

"The younger generation could learn a lot from him and should read his articles. We lost a great national pressman," he said.

Also paying their last respects were Coordinating Minister for People`s Welfare Agung Laksono, Meutia Hatta, former information minister Harmoko, politican AM Fatwa, and actor Dedy Mizwar.

Rosihan Anwar died on Thursday morning at MMC Hospital, Jakarta.

The journalist of three eras had begun his journalistic career during the Dutch colonial era with the Asia Raya newspaper. He underwent a bypass surgery at Harapan Kita cardiac hospital on March 24, 2011 and was allowed to leave the hospital on April 13.

He had led Siasat daily from 1947 to 1957, and Pedoman from 1948 to 1961. Rosihan was a founder of the Indonesian Journalists` Association (PWI) and became PWI chairman from 1968 to 1974.

The senior journalist is survived by three children - Aida Fatia, Omar Luthfi and Naila.

He was born in Kubang Nan Dua, West Sumatra, on May 10, 1922, and known as a historian, man of letters and culture.

Ilham Bintang, secretary of the Indonesian Journalists Association (PWI)`S Honorary Council, said Rosihan Anwar felt week when his daughter was feeding him.

"His family later brought Rosihan Anwar to MMC Jakarta," Ilham Bintang said.

When they arrived at the hospital, the doctor pronounced him dead.

Rosihan had a heart bypass surgery at Harapan Kita cardiac hospital in Jakarta on March 24, 2011.
