… 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. …

15 writers chosen for Ubud Writers festival

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 06/03/2011

The committee of the Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF) has chosen 15 writers to appear at the annual literary event, held in Ubud, Bali from Oct. 5-9 this year

The festival, which was first held in 2004, is one of the most prominent literary festivals in the world. Fatimah Bhutto, a poet who is the granddaughter of former Pakistani prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, praised the festival as one of the best literary festivals of its kind.

“They [writers] come from various areas across the archipelago. Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Bali and West Nusa Tenggara are all represented in the chosen lineup of writers,” the festival’s community development manager, Kadek Purnami, said Friday.

The writers are Alan Malingi from West Nusa Tenggara, Arafat Nur from Aceh, Aulia Nurul Adzkia from Ciamis, Budy Utamy from Riau, Fitri Yani from Bandar Lampung, Ida Ahdiah from Tangerang, Irianto Ibrahim from Kendari, Pinto Anugrah and Ragdi F Daye from Padang, Rida Fitria from Lumajang, Sandy Firly from Banjarmasin, Sanie B Kuncoro from Solo, Saut Poltak Tambunan from Jakarta, Satmoko Budi Santoso from Yogyakarta, and Wahyudin from Banten.

The writers were chosen during the 2011 UWRF Board of Curators meeting in Sanur in May. The curators involved in the selections were senior writers Kurnia Effendi from Jakarta, Dorothea Rosa Herliany from Magelang, Iyut Fitra from Payakumbuh and Made Adnyana Ole from Bali.

“The [15] chosen writers are a reflection [of Indonesia] being an archipelago because they come from various areas and cultural backgrounds. Their works of art are also in various forms: some write poems while others write novels, essays, short stories and drama scripts,” Kurnia Effendi said as quoted from

This year the theme of the festival will be "Nandurin Karang Awak", literally meaning cultivate the land within, based on the work of the late Balinese poet Ida Pedanda Made Sidemen.
