… 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. …

Aceh Gives Up GAM Flag for Oil

Jakarta. The government in Aceh has agreed to back down from its plans to adopt the flag of the now-disbanded separatist Free Aceh Movement, or GAM, after Jakarta pledged to allow the local government to control one of its oil and gas blocks, top officials said on Thursday.

“There has been a deal through the coordinating ministry for the economy,” said Tedjo Edhy Purdijatno, the minister. “Both sides have reached an agreement.”

The Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Sudirman Said said Jakarta had agreed to award Aceh control over one of its oil and gas blocks, the Pase block.

The block, Sudirman said, would be managed by a province-owned enterprise Perusahaan Daerah Pembangunan Aceh.

But Jakarta still needs to issue a government decree awarding the local firm the block’s management rights. A draft of the decree “is still being formulated. Just a little bit more required,” Sudirman said.

Jakarta has criticized Aceh’s adoption of the GAM flag as its provincial standard since it was proposed in March last year.

The central government argued that it violated the 2005 peace agreement between the GAM and the government, but Aceh Governor Zaini Abdullah, himself a former GAM commander, argued that the Finland-brokered peace deal did not include the specifics of Aceh’s flag.

Officials in Aceh said the flag, featuring a crescent moon and star on a red background, predated the separatist movement, claiming it was the symbol of the ancient kingdom that once ruled the region.

But Jakarta insists, saying the symbol is one of those outlawed, a list which also includes the South Maluku Republic’s Benang Raja flag and the Free Papua Organization’s Bintang Kejora flag.

In defiance, thousands of people in Aceh have been raising the GAM flag, prompting forceful seizures and tensions between civilians and members of the security forces.

When he returned to office for the second time this year, Vice President Jusuf Kalla immediately sought to appease tensions between Aceh and Jakarta.

Talks between Zaini and the central government, mediated by Kalla, who was instrumental in the 2005 peace deal, started last week.

Zaini earlier said Jakarta had promised Aceh control over the province’s oil concessions and land management rights since the 2005 accord, but talks between the two sides stalled when then-president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono dropped Kalla as his vice president.

“Now that [Kalla] is vice president again” talks resumed, the governor said last week.

Zaini said that Aceh earlier wanted control over oil both onshore and as far as 370 kilometers offshore. Aceh also wants 70 percent of the profits.

Details of the deal are still obscure, but Jakarta has previously said it will only provide Aceh mining concession rights to oil and iron sand located along the coastlines of several islands in the province.
