… 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. …

Monas Gets Scrubdown After 22 Years Without Bathing

Jakarta. One of Jakarta’s most iconic landmarks, the National Monument, will be washed this week and next for the first time in decades.

“Today we commenced [the cleaning] and some experts from Germany will come on Thursday to clean the obelisk,” monument manager Rini Haryani said on Monday.

Usually referred to as Monas, shortened from Monumen Nasional, the obelisk stands in the center of a grassy park in Central Jakarta that attracts thousands of tourists every day, along with hawkers, street performers and local children kicking footballs.

Sukarno, Indonesia’s first president, ordered the construction of the 132-meter tower, which opened to the public in 1975.

The grounds and other attractions will remain open during the cleaning, scheduled to end on May 18, but the top of the monument will be off limits.

“Visitors can still visit the National History Museum and the Hall of Independence, they are still open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m,” Rini said.

German company Kaercher, known for its work on public monuments, has taken on the mammoth task of washing away 22 years of discoloring dirt and Jakarta pollution. The company recently changed its Facebook cover photo to an illustration of two figures abseiling down the structure’s facade.

Kaercher cleaned the monument in 1992 — the last time it had a professional rinse. Rini said the company would use special heavy duty equipment.

Jakarta Deputy Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama said he had entrusted Kaercher with the task because it did well in 1992 and because of its strong international reputation.

“First of all it is free,” he said. “Many companies offered us to clean it up for free, but we need a company that has experience… and we want to be able to promote our landmark.”

Kaercher has cleaned over 80 global landmarks, including the London Eye in England and Mount Rushmore in the United States.

Basuki dismissed criticism over his choice of a foreign company.

“There are many other historical monuments in Jakarta that need to be cleaned up,” he said. “Why don’t they make a fuss about these monuments?”

The city has invited residents and visitors to attend an event during which they can participate in the cleaning on May 15.

Monas last underwent major maintenance between Oct. 21 and Dec. 15, when its elevator system was replaced.
