… 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. …

Government rules Idul Fitri on Saturday

The Jakarta Post

The government ruled on Thursday that Idul Fitri will be celebrated in Indonesia on Saturday.

The decision is not binding and some Islamic organizations, including Muhammadiyah, have already informed their followers to celebrate the Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadhan on Friday.

The announcement, by religious affairs minister Maftuch Baisyuni, came after a meeting with representatives of major Islamic organizations to determine whether Ramadan ends Thursday or Friday.

The meeting reviewed reports from various regions on efforts to physically sight the new moon.

Baisyuni said the majority of the stations tasked with the job failed to sight the new moon, meaning that Ramadhan month will be completed 30 days.

For the umpteenth time, Indonesian Muslims are divided on when to celebrate Idul Fitri.

Muhammadiyah chairman Din Syamsuddin appealed to all Muslims to show tolerance and respect differences on when to celebrate Idul Fitri. His appeal came after the Indonesian Ulema Council, the umbrella group for all Islamic organizations, issued a fatwa obliging all Indonesian Muslims to follow on the government’s decision on when to end Ramadhan.

With this dualism, Muhammadiyah followers will hold the mass Idul Fitri prayers on Friday morning. The others will have their prayers on Saturday.

UNITY IN DIVERSITY: Some 500 followers of lowly Muslim organization An Nadzier in Gowa, South Sulawesi perform the Idul Fitri prayer on Thursday as they started Ramadhan fasting on Sept. 11, unlike most Muslims who began fasting on Sept. 13. Muhammadiyah, the second largest Muslim organization in the country, has set Friday as the date for Idul Fitri, while the government decided Thursday evening that Idul Fitri will be celebrated on Saturday.
