… 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. …

Australian Aid Program to Help 3 Million Indonesian Women

Australia’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bob Carr, announced on Sunday that Australia would help about three million Indonesian women with jobs, family planning and increased protection against domestic violence as part of a $60 million aid program.

“Indonesia continues to make strong progress in women’s rights, education and jobs. Nearly half of all school students are girls, and more women than men are enrolled in universities,” said the minister, who is on his first official visit to Indonesia.

“But there’s more to be done, especially in rural and eastern Indonesia where female literacy, income and reproductive health are poor.”

He cited the stark statistical contrast between Indonesia and Australia: “An Indonesian woman is 30 times more likely to die in childbirth than her Australian counterpart.”

He continued, “Many women continue to have little or no say in communal decision-making — a result of poor economic and social standing. That’s why we’re reaching out to three million rural women — helping them with jobs, anti-violence programs and choices on whether, when and how many children to have. And this program has strong Indonesian support — another sign of Australia’s close relationship with our northern neighbor.”

According to a statement from AusAID, the program will be delivered, beginning later this year, “by AusAID through Indonesian providers and in-country non-government organizations.”

Over the next four years, the initiative will help poor women find local jobs and fight discrimination at work, fund social programs such as health care and schooling for children, and provide contraception and family planning advice, among other objectives.

Carr also announced a $215,000 grant to support the Unesco program in Borobudur, Indonesia.

The Borobudur temple site, a Unesco World Heritage site, is one of Indonesia’s most popular tourist destinations, “but few tourist dollars flow to local families.” Carr said. “The benefits from Borobudur’s popularity should reach the 55,000 local villagers who call this area home.”

The Australian program mainly seeks “to boost local jobs and tourism income through training for local workers on heritage tourism and quality handicraft production,” according to a press release.

“There is tremendous potential to help local communities by bringing their handicrafts, such as textiles, ceramics and wood carving to international tourists,” Carr said. “The hundreds of thousands of Australians who visit Borobudur would be pleased to know they are also supporting the local community.”
