… 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. …

Sukarno’s Daughter Given Rights to Biopic

Jakarta. The Central Jakarta Commercial Court has handed over the rights to a popular biopic about Indonesia’s founding president to his second daughter Rachmawati Sukarnoputri after a months-long legal dispute over the film’s content.

Based on the verdict, the court ruled that producer Raam Punjabi and director Hanung Bramantyo have violated the intellectual rights of the Sukarno family.

“The legal process has been going on for three months, and thank God, the judge has decided that the rights to ['Soekarno: Indonesia Merdeka'] are mine,” Rachmawati said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Rachmawati’s lawyer Leonard Simorangkir added that she will proceed to claim material compensation for the film, though the amount of money is still undecided.

“The movie made a profit,” Leonard said. “We want to claim the profit through legal means. It’s up to Ibu Rachmawati where she wants to give the money to.”

However, according to the lawsuit, Rachmawati only asked Raam Punjabi and Hanung Bramantyo to apologize and pay a symbolic sum of Rp 2 ($0.000176).

“In this lawsuit, its not the amount of money that Ibu Rachmawati concerned about,” Leonard said. “The important thing is that they feel guilty and pay the damages, even though it’s only Rp 2.”

Speaking on the topic of biopics, Rachmawati stressed that all filmmakers have the right to make films about important historical figures, as long as they obtain the consent of their descendants beforehand.

“In this case, we made an agreement that had to be obeyed by both parties,” she said. “It turned out that the party that partnered with me flouted the agreement and made the film different from the original script. It ruined Sukarno’s character.”

She said that she came up with the original idea for the movie and only hired Hanung to direct the movie on the recommendation of prominent Indonesian actress Widyawati.

“Hanung was merely a painter I asked to paint,” she said. “The plans and ideas were mine. I knew my father much better than he and Raam Punjabi did.”

Rachmawati had already filed a separate defamation lawsuit with the special crimes division of the Jakarta Police last year.

“I hope that they can be made suspects as soon as possible,” she said.
