… 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. …

Minister to Investigate Age of Death Row Convict Whom Activists Say Is Juvenile

Cilacap, Central Java. Minister for Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection Yohana Yambise said on Wednesday she would cancel the death penalty for a teenager convicted of murder if he were found to have been a juvenile when he was sentenced by a North Sumatra court in 2013.

“I came to check on Yusman and he says he’s in a safe and sound condition,” Yohana told reporters on Wednesday at Nusakambangan penitentiary in Cilacap, Central Java.

“I also came to make sure if he’s a minor,” the minister added.

Yusman Telaumbanua was sentenced to die by firing squad by Gunung Sitoli district court in Nias, North Sumatra, on May 21 2013, for being involved in the premeditated murder of three people in 2012.

On Aug. 17, 2013, Yusman was transferred to Nusakambangan prison to be executed by firing squad. The execution has been placed on hold pending an investigation into his age.

“I haven’t made any decision yet but I will dig deeper into this case,” Yohana said, adding that she would consult with Indonesia’s National Child Protection Commission in the investigation.

She said she would visit Yusman’s village in Nias to check with his school as well as his neighbors and church, which issued Yusman’s certificate of baptism.

“If he is proven to be underage, then we will revise his sentence,” she said. “For children, it’s a maximum 10 years’ imprisonment.”

When Yusman was handed the sentence, the court claimed Yusman was born in 1993, which would have made him an adult.

However, the Commission of Missing Persons and Victims of Violence reported later that Yusman’s baptism certificate proved he was born on Aug. 5, 1996.

The Nias civil registry office has also denied that Yusman was born in 1993, Kontras said.

Indonesian law defines anyone who is under 18 years old as minors.
