… 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. Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno L.P. Marsudi is reported to have turned down a last-ditch attempt by the government of Australia to spare two of its citizens, convicted of drug trafficking, from the firing squad before the end of the month.

Myuran Sukumaran, 33, and Andrew Chan, 31, are among of batch of mostly foreign death-row inmates scheduled to face the firing squad after their requests for clemency were rejected by President Joko Widodo.

“I have been talking to [Australian Foreign Minister] Julie Bishop twice, our communication is consistent,” Retno said on Thursday as quoted by Indonesian news portal

“I have explained Indonesia’s policy. This isn’t about Indonesia against other countries, it’s about Indonesia against crime,” she added.

“In the past, Indonesia was only used as a transit point for drug trafficking, but now we are the biggest market in Asia and third-biggest in the world. We are in an emergency situation.”

Indonesia is not a larger market for illegal drugs than China or India, two other countries in Asia. More people die from road accidents and smoking than are killed by drugs in Indonesia.

Bishop previously made a statement urging the Indonesian government to show mercy for Sukumaran and Chan, who were found guilty of attempting to smuggle more than eight kilograms of heroin out of Bali in 2005.

A lawyer for the pair, Todung Mulya Lubis, said his clients would challenge the presidential decree rejecting the clemency. However, Justice Minister Yasonna Laoly said the challenge would not be recognized under Indonesian law.

Indonesia has faced strong criticism from the international community and human rights groups for resuming the executions of convicted drug traffickers, while President Joko has been criticized for using fallacious data to claim that up to 50 Indonesians die every day from drug abuse.
