… 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. …

Kalla begins overseas trip, to meet President Obama

Aditya Suharmoko, The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Sun, 02/01/2009 8:32 AM  

Vice President Jusuf Kalla arrived in Tokyo on Saturday, kicking off a 10-day overseas trip that will take him to Washington to meet United States President Barack Obama. 

Officials at the vice presidential secretariat said Kalla would meet Obama during the 57th National Prayer Breakfast organized by the US Congress, in which Kalla would deliver a speech titled“Drafting Peace in Asia: The Indonesia Experience” on Thursday. Obama will join other world leaders in the annual forum. 

The encounter with Obama will make Kalla the first Indonesian official to meet the new US president, who spent four years of his childhood in Jakarta.

Prior to his inauguration, Obama briefly spoke with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono – including a few words of Indonesian – on the phone when the Indonesian leader was on a stopover in Seattle en route to Nagoya, Japan, from the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Lima last November.

The White House has not arranged a formal agenda for Kalla, but talks are underway between officials of the two countries for a meeting between him and his US counterpart Joe Biden.

During his two-day stay in the US, Kalla is also scheduled to attend a luncheon with the US-Indonesia Society.

In October last year, Kalla received a member of the fund raising team for Obama, Ed Cunningham, for a one-hour meeting at the vice presidential office in Jakarta.

Kalla is visiting Japan to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Soka in Tokyo during a ceremony on Monday.

The university will honor Kalla for his contribution to peace negotiations for various conflicts in Indonesia, including the Aceh rebellion, which lasted four decades.

Other world leaders who have been awarded the academic title include former South African president Nelson Mandela, Egyptian President Husni Mubarak, former Indian president KR Narayanan, former Brazilian president Fernando Henrique Cardoso and former Philippines president Fidel Valdes Ramos.

On Sunday, Kalla will visit Zoorasia in Yokohama; a zoo that exhibits endemic Indonesian animals, including the Sumatran tiger, tapir and orangutan.

The Vice President will also visit an underground agricultural center in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo.

Upon completing his US trip, Kalla will fly to Belgium to receive the Commandeur De L’Ordre De Leopold medal for his contribution to improving ties between the two countries.

Kalla is also slated to pay a courtesy visit to Crown Prince Philippe Leopold Marie and Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy. 

Kalla will then visit the Netherlands on his way back to Jakarta.
