… 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. …

Jambi Village Discovers Treasure Trove in Dutch-Era Safe

Jakarta Globe, August 13, 2011

Residents of Koto Baru Hiang village in Kerinci district, Jambi, said on Friday that they had unearthed a veritable treasure trove of World War II-era money from an old safe.

Ahmad Nasril, the village head, said the discovery was made when the safe, which had been sitting unused in the village hall as long as anyone could remember, was opened during recent renovation work.

“The safe had always just been hidden away in a room in the village hall that people believed was haunted by a ghost, because it was always so dark,” he said.

The safe’s rediscovery came after the village received funding to renovate the hall, itself a relic of the Dutch colonial era. Part of the work involved fixing up a section of the ceiling that had collapsed in the very room where the safe was located.

“When we finally brought the safe out into the light of day, we used the chance to prize it open,” Nasril said. “That’s when we found several bundles of old money from the Japanese colonial era.”

The Japanese occupation of Indonesia lasted from 1942 until the end of the war in 1945.

Nasril said that while the money did not bear any dates for when it was printed, it could be tracked to the Japanese occupation because it read: “ De Japansche Regeering Betaalt Toonder Half Gulden ,” or “The Japanese Government Will Pay the Bearer Half a Guilder.”

However, he said the total value of the money remained unknown because many of the notes had been damaged by mold, attributed to a half-century of humidity and rainwater leaking into the safe.

Nasril said the safe also contained documents with the old Indonesian spelling, including a notice decreeing the implementation of a livestock tax, dated July 1, 1947.

“This particular document shows just how compliant the Kerinci people were about paying taxes back then, even if it was to an occupying authority,” he said.

The village hall had been used as an administrative office by the Dutch, who reoccupied the archipelago shortly after the Japanese left in 1945. Later it was used as a center for the traditional rulers of the district.

Nasril said the money and documents would be stored at his house for safekeeping while the Kerinci administration was notified about the discovery.

“This is clearly a very significant find for us, especially coming so close to Independence Day, when we look back at our history,” he said.
