… 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. …

Jakarta. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and President-elect Joko Widodo met for two hours in Nusa Dua, Bali, on Wednesday night to ensure that the transition process between the incumbent and new administration runs smoothly.

“We had a constructive discussion in the two-hour meeting regarding crucial matters related to the agenda of the state and the government,” Yudhoyono said in a press conference after the closed meeting with Joko.

Yudhoyono said he and Joko discussed government policies and programs and also matters related to the 2015 revised state budget and 2014 revised state budget.

Joko admitted that one of the topics they discussed in the meeting was the 2015 state budget, which Yudhoyono’s administration has proposed and which will be passed on to Joko’s administration.

“The discussion on [the state budget] was a bit detailed and the transition team will follow up the technicalities with the ministries,” Joko said.

The outgoing president said both camps agreed to hold further discussions on the technicalities related to the transition process.

“Pak Jokowi’s transition team officially works with the government and I approve of the communication and consultation [that had been developed between both camps],” Yudhoyono said, referring to Joko by his nickname.

Yudhoyono promised that the meeting would not be the last because Wednesday night’s was just the beginning of the two sides’ cooperation to ensure a smooth transition.

Joko said the smooth transition of power was a new tradition in Indonesia, which should be preserved.

“This is a new tradition that we want to continue,” Joko said during the joint press conference. “This is just the beginning that we hope to plan and implement as soon as possible. Let’s hope this can become a new tradition in Indonesia from incumbent government to the new one.”

Special presidential adviser for political communication Daniel Sparingga earlier said that the two leaders hoped to create a new culture of respect between outgoing and incoming presidents with Wednesday’s meeting. Daniel said that Yudhoyono wanted to build on this tradition when he became president in 2004. He said such a meeting and cooperation would be helpful for an incoming president.

However, Daniel said when Yudhoyono sent a representative to meet predecessor Megawati Sukarnoputri in 2004, she did not welcome the move.
