… 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. …

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Monday asked law enforcers and ministers to take swift and proper action to prevent further violence against Shia groups in Sampang, Madura, East Java after a recent attack on the sect took two lives.

“I have talked with the East Java governor... I hope there will be effective measures taken by all of you and your staffs to ensure these events will not repeatedly happen in the same place,” Yudhoyono told his ministers and some legal institution chiefs at a limited cabinet meeting, as quoted by Antara news agency.

During the meeting attended by the Justice and Human Rights Minister, the National Police chief, the Military chief and the Attorney General, the president said that similar attacks have occurred three times in the past few years.

“In the past two years, attacks have taken place twice, with another occurring once before.”

On Sunday at 11 AM, a mob of Sunni Muslims attacked a group of Shia students and teachers with swords and machetes in Sampang. According to Umi Kulsum, local people who were present at the scene said that two people, Hamama and Tohir, died in the attacks, while five were injured. The mob also torched thirty-five homes belonging to the Shiite community.

The Freedom of Religion and Faith Advocacy Working Group (AKBB) said that based on witness testimony, there were police officers present during the attack but they did not do anything to help quell the situation — they merely sat near where the violence occurred. Later in the afternoon, police evacuated 176 Shiites to Sampang sports stadium. Some of them had fled earlier to hide in the mountains and at family’s houses.

Religious Affairs Minister Suryadharma Ali cursed the attack, saying that religion teaches peace and not violence.

“Violence in the name of anything, especially in the name of religion or religious difference, can not be justified,” Suryadharma said. “Every problem that is raised from a difference in opinion should be solved through constructive conversation.”

He asked the local Religious Minister’s office to coordinate a dialogue on the issue.

Akhol Firdaus of the AKBB has criticized the police for failing to anticipate the attack, even though the plan of the attack had been disclosed before Idul Fitri fell.

“Police ignore the violence that has taken lives and caused material losses,” Akhol said. “The government has failed in providing security and guaranteeing the basic rights of Shiites in Sampang. The government has also failed to protect Shiites from systematic and well-planned threats of violence.”

On Dec. 29, Shiites in Nangkernang were also attacked by hard-line Muslim groups, who set fire to hundreds of homes and a Shia Islamic school, displacing 500 Shiites from their village.

After the cabinet meeting, President Yudhoyono commented that “heavy sanctions [against the perpetrators] may be good for our nation,” as quoted by “Under such conditions, it’s not easy for citizens or certain parties to violate the law.”
