… 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. …

The Hague to Unveil Street Named After Murdered Activist Munir

Jakarta. A bicycle path is set to be officially inaugurated in The Hague to commemorate the prominent Indonesian human rights activist Munir Said Thalib, who was murdered in 2004 on his way to the Netherlands.

Suciwati, Munir’s widow, was quoted as saying by on Friday that she would attend a ceremony on April 11, while local media in the Netherlands reported that a ceremony to unveil the Munirpad, or Munir Path, would be held on April 14.

A researcher at the Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence (Kontras), Indria Fernida, told the Indonesian news portal that the Dutch government had been expressing its intention to use Munir’s name for a street in The Hague since 2011.

Ultimately, the city administration of The Hague — seat of the Dutch government — decided in October last year to name a 500-meter long bike path after the Indonesian activist.

The path runs between two avenues, the Martin Luther Kinglaan and the Architect Berlagelaan, in an area of the city with streets named after such prominent historical figures as Dag Hammarskjold, Albert Schweitzer, Salvador Allende and Mahatma Gandhi.

Munir, who founded Kontras, died on Sept. 7, 2004, at the age of 39 during a trip from Jakarta to Amsterdam. He was on his way to join a master’s program in the Netherlands, but was poisoned with arsenic during a layover in Singapore.

He was the executive director of Imparsial, another human rights group, at the time of his death and had been an outspoken critic of members of the Indonesian security forces he accused of involvement in a variety of criminal enterprises.

Former Garuda Indonesia pilot Pollycarpus Budihari Priyanto was convicted of the murder and served eight years of a 14-year sentence before being released on parole late last year.

Pointing to the apparent lack of a motive for the murder, activists say Pollycarpus is highly unlikely to have acted of his own accord and that the mastermind behind the assassination remains at large.
