… 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. …

Foreign Ministry: Netherlands, Brazil Ties Not Harmed, Oz Efforts ‘Respected’

Jakarta. In an apparent effort to play down the international fallout of the recent execution of six drug convicts, the Foreign Affairs Ministry stressed on Tuesday that the ambassadors of the Netherlands and Brazil were only called back for consultation — and not withdrawn — and that Indonesia “respects” Australian efforts to save the lives of two of its citizens on death row here.

Ministry spokesman Armanatha Nasir said that both Brazil and the Netherlands – whose governments have expressed their serious disappointment over Indonesia’s decision to kill their nationals despite high-level requests to commute their death sentences — still have a diplomatic presence in Jakarta.

“I have to stress again that this is not a withdrawal of ambassadors but a recall for consultation. Last week they sent us a letter informing us of this recall. If you say ‘withdraw’ that means severing diplomatic ties, and it’s not like that,” Armanatha said.

The spokesman added that such a diplomatic move should not be considered as very unusual, that the relations with Brazil and the Netherlands would not be harmed by this measure, and that Indonesia still considered its ties with both as friendly.

“The Foreign Affairs Ministry is of the opinion that every government has the right to recall their ambassador for consultation,” Armanatha said.  “We keep our lines of communication open with these two countries, and we try to maintain good bilateral relations with the Netherlands and Brazil.”


The spokesman already made similar comments on Sunday, but since then the Nigerian government also summoned the Indonesian ambassador over the execution of two of its nationals.

It was previously reported that one of those executed was a citizen of Malawi, but the Nigerian government said the man identified as Namaona Denis based on the Malawian passport he was using, was in fact one of its nationals.

Six people were executed for drug offenses on Sunday, one Indonesian national, a Dutchman, a Brazilian, a Vietnamese woman, and the two Nigerians.


Armanatha also said that Indonesia respected the efforts by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott to get Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan off death row, but that the supremacy of Indonesian law should be honored.

The spokesman said he was confident ties with Australia would not be damaged over the execution of the two men who were part of the so-called Bali Nine heroin smuggling network.

“What we know is that the Australian PM has said that the ties between Indonesia and Australia are very strong and they have also said that this factor [the planned executions] will not disturb diplomatic relations,” Armanatha said.

Chan is still waiting for a response from President Joko Widodo to his clemency request. His execution, or that of Sukumaran, has not been scheduled yet, but the Indonesian government has stressed it plans to put to all drug convicts on death row before the firing squad, regardless of nationality.
