… 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. …

Schapelle Corby Takes Key Step in Indonesia Parole Bid

Jakarta. An application by Australian drug trafficker Schapelle Corby for parole from an Indonesian jail was heard last week in private, an official said Monday, a key step in her bid for early release.

Authorities in the capital Jakarta heard her case on Thursday, said prisons spokesman Akbar Hadi Prabowo, although he refused to reveal the result.

“The decision is now in the hands of the justice minister,” added justice ministry spokeswoman Ika Yusanti.

Corby, who is in prison on the resort island of Bali, was not present at the hearing.

The hearing is expected to be the key factor in the possible early release of Corby, who was jailed in 2005 after being caught smuggling marijuana into Bali.

While Justice Minister Amir Syamsuddin has the final say, he has previously said he does not oppose granting Corby parole.

Authorities on Bali have already recommended the 36-year-old’s early release but her parole bid has for months been bogged down in bureaucratic wrangling.

However it received a boost when Indonesian authorities granted a French drug smuggler an early release last month. Michael Blanc is one of the few foreigners to have been freed on parole in recent years.

Corby’s case has attracted huge publicity in Australia, and in March last year the then-foreign minister Bob Carr offered Jakarta a formal guarantee that she would comply with her parole conditions.

Corby was caught trying to smuggle 4.1 kilograms of marijuana into Bali but has always maintained her innocence.

She was originally given 20 years but has received several remissions and a sentence cut of five years from the president after she filed an appeal for clemency.

If granted parole, Corby would still be bound to live on Bali and obliged to report regularly to authorities. She would live with her sister.
