… 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. …

More high-schoolers get free classes

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The city administration has announced an almost fivefold increase in the number of free tuition cards being handed out to state high school students for the coming academic year.

"The cards will be given to the city's poorest students so we hope they won't drop out of school for financial reasons," the head of the Jakarta Secondary and Higher Education Agency, Margani M. Mustar, told reporters at City Hall on Wednesday after attending a ceremony to mark National Education Day.

The agency will provide 2,500 free tuition cards this year. The program started three years ago with 550 recipients.

During the ceremony, Governor Sutiyoso handed over an education subsidy of Rp 2 million each for 4,482 teachers in both private and public schools, and scholarships of Rp 5 million each for 1,871 teachers. A total of 44,558 private school teachers also received allowances of Rp 200,000 each.

Sutiyoso said in order for students to receive the cards they must present a letter from their subdistrict stating that they were from a low income family. However, students without such a letter would still be able to apply to their school headmaster for the cards.

"School headmasters would then have to visit the applicants' house to prove that they really deserved the cards," he said.

Margani said the agency was in the process of screening card applicants and would inform successful applicants in July, right before the beginning of the new school year.

He added that the administration had allocated Rp 6.25 billion (US$686 million) from this year's budget for the program. Each recipient would get Rp 2.5 million per annum.

He said the agency had offered scholarships and subsidies to poor students to reduce the number of high school dropouts.

According to the agency there are more than 400,000 high school students in Jakarta at 116 public high schools and 60 vocational schools.

In order to improve the quality of education, the administration also plans to certify the more than 40,000 teachers in the city.

"We hope that by 2011 all the teachers will have been certified," Margani said, adding that certified teachers would receive increased allowances.

He said 6,000 teachers would be certified this year.
