… 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. …

RI pledges US$10 mln to support UNESCO

Antara News, Thu, November 24 2011

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Education and Culture Minister Mohammad Nuh has announced that the Indonesian government will contribute $10 million to support the activities of UNESCO which is financially experiencing difficult times.

The announcement was made during the first official visit by UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova to Indonesia, the UNESCO Jakarta Office said on its official website, Thursday.

The UNESCO Director-General opened the 6th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage which is being held in Bali from November 22 to 29, 2011.

The Director-General also met with the Coordinating Minister for People`s Welfare Agung Laksono and the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Mari Elka Pangestu.

The Director-General expressed her gratitude for this significant and timely contribution, affirming that it would support UNESCO`s core activities, including the preservation of heritage, capacity building and improving the quality of education.

A substantial part of the funding will be used for programs to support Indonesia and the ASEAN region.

During her stay in Bali, Irina Bokova visited the cultural landscape of Bali which has been proposed by the Indonesian Government for inscription onto the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The Director-General was accompanied by the acting Director General for History and Archaeology of the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, I Gede Pitana and the Director of UNESCO Jakarta, Hubert Gijzen.

The visit covered some of the proposed sites, such as Batukaru Temple, a unique and sacred mountain sanctuary, and the royal temple of Tabanan dynasty, located in the middle of a rain forest and beneath Mount Batukaru. This temple is one of the biggest Hindu temples in Bali and was built to worship the deities of the surrounding mountains and lake.

The DG also visited the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces, which are located in the Regency of Tabanan, about 700 meters above the sea level. The site is managed by an elaborate community-based traditional irrigation system, known as the `subak` system, which symbolizes the Balinese Tri Hita Karana concept that binds gods, human and nature together.

The visit was followed by a visit to Taman Ayun Temple which was built in the 18th Century. The temple is influenced by both Balinese-Majapahit and Chinese styles, which gives it its uniqueness.

At the temple, the Director General`s delegates received an on-site briefing and were welcomed by a Sekar Jepun traditional dance.

The Director-General commended the local community for its dedication.

"On behalf of UNESCO, I appreciate all you are doing to preserve your heritage for future generations. You are an excellent example of what Indonesia represents: a huge diversity, a dynamic country with long traditions; an impressive social and economic development that has reconciled heritage with modernity. I encourage you to protect and pass on this heritage to future generations," she said.
