… 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. …

JG Photographer Recognized for Gayus Photo

Jakarta Globe, April 19, 2011

A photograph that unravelled deep-rooted corrupt practices in law enforcement institutions earned a Jakarta Globe photographer a National Press Day Award on Tuesday.

The photograph, taken by the Globe's chief photographer, Jurnasyanto Sukarno, and published on the Nov. 6, 2010, issue, depicted a wig-wearing man among the spectators in a tennis tournament in Bali bearing an uncanny resemblance to disgraced former taxman Gayus Tambunan.

The publication of the picture, and a similar one in Kompas newspaper a few days later, led to the discovery that Gayus, who should have been behind bars pending a graft verdict, had been able to bribe his way out of his detention cell at will, including to go on vacations overseas with his wife.

"The picture spoke volumes about the corruption plaguing this country," Globe chief editor Bhimanto Suwastoyo said.

Gayus will soon face trial for bribery charges related to the illicit jaunts, while the former chief warden at the Brimob detention center and several other correctional officers are currently on trial for receiving bribes to let him out of the heavily guarded facility.

The award was also given to Kompas photographer Agus Susanto, who also took the same picture, and Suara Hidayatullah journalist Surya Fachrizal for his extraordinary coverage of the sending of humanitarian aid to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on board the Marvi Marmara boat.

Indonesia Corruption Watch was also presented with the National Press Day Award for its extraordinary efforts in fighting corruption and its close partnership with the press in these efforts.

The awards were presented by the 2011 National Press Day Community during a gathering at the TVRI building in South Jakarta that also saw the awarding of the Gold Medal for Journalism Spirit to veteran journalist Jacob Oetama and the “Press Card Number One” to 35 journalists in recognition for their professionalism, integrity and contributions to press freedom.
