… 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. …

Yudhoyono Delivers Swan Song to House Ahead of Independence Day

Jakarta. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono delivered the final state speech of his ten-year tenure on Friday, thanking the electorate for its “support” and painting a picture of Indonesia’s transformation during his decade at the State Palace.

“On behalf of of myself and my family I want to convey my gratitude and sincere appreciation for the government and all Indonesians for your support and participation in achieving the development agenda over the past ten years,” Yudhoyono said during his speech to mark the 69th anniversary of Indonesian independence.

Yudhoyono specially mentioned public servants working in the far-flung corners of the archipelago, from dusty frontier towns to remote jungle encampments.

“Thank you for your dedication, which has been above and beyond the call of duty,” Yudhoyono said.

The outgoing president has overseen a near-fourfold increase in the size of the economy, in dollar terms, during his decade in power, with GDP in 2013 recorded at $868 billion, according to World Bank data.

Yudhoyono said that while most Indonesians in the past were unable to read and write, the country’s education system now comprised 200,000 schools, 3 million teachers and 50 million students.

The country, he said, had grown into a middle-income nation ranked as the 16th-largest economy in the world, and inside the top ten of states when looking at Purchasing Power Parity, a hypothetical indicator that adds foreign-exchange relative value.

“After being an independent nation for almost seven decades, in this 21st century Indonesia has become a united country that is peaceful and prosperous,” he said.

Yudhoyono also pointed to the country’s successful record on holding elections. He said his administration had been a thorn in the side of corrupt officials — with some 277 public officials having been forced out by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).

The president ended on an optimistic note, reminding the electorate of how far the country had come in its democratization drive, and of the importance of ensuring that the process continued.

“Let’s all work together to guard the 2014 election process so that it stays peaceful and constitutional, just like the previous election,” Yudhoyono said. “The 2014 election is not merely the fight of the elites.”
