… 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. …

Bali’s Denpasar King Sentenced to Two Years in Jail Over Land Fraud

Jakarta Globe, Made Arya Kencana, June 15, 2012

Denpasar. The Denpasar District Court on Friday sentenced the king of Bali’s Denpasar monarchy to two years in jail in a fraud case surrounding the sale of a plot of land belonging to the royal family.

Denpasar King Ida Tjokorda
Ngurah Jambe Pemecutan IX
The panel of judges said Denpasar King Ida Tjokorda Ngurah Jambe Pemecutan IX, better known as Cok Samirana, 68, was found guilty of deception, by claiming that he had the right to sell a plot of land without approval from other members of the monarchy.

The Denpasar monarch, known locally as Puri Satria, is one of the traditional monarchs that still exists on Bali, Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination, although most of them only play symbolic roles and do not rule administratively.

“The defendant [Samirana] convinced the victim that he was the one who had the right to sell the land,” chief judge Tony Hutauruk said as he read out the verdict.

Tony added that Samirana had abused Article 378 of the Criminal Code on crimes of deception.

The trial revealed that the case began in 2006, when victim Lely Sri Mawarni intended to purchase 10 hectares of land on Jalan Badak Agung in Denpasar. The land was known to be an asset of Puri Satria.

Samirana offered the land at Rp 75 million ($8,025) per are (1 hectare = 100 are), and Lely agreed to purchase the 10 hectare-land at Rp 15 billion, with payment to be made in three installments.

She had already paid Rp 7.6 billion when she asked for an original certificate of the land from Samirana, but the king was unable to show it.

Instead, in November 2006, Lely received a letter from Puri Satria, not the king, informing her that the land was not for sale, that it belonged to the monarchy and could not be handed over to someone else.

Lely said she had complained about the issue to Samirana, but he insisted he had a right to sell the land because he was the king.

Lely then reported Samirana to the Bali Police in January 2009.

Responding to the verdict on Friday, Samirana’s lawyer I Gusti Ngurah Made Arya said his client would file an appeal.

“There was no intention to deceive at all... The defendant has planned to return the money,” Arya said.
