… 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. …

Enter the Dragon, Ministry Urges Indonesians

The Jakarta Globe, Nurfika Osman, March 3, 2009

The Ministry of Culture and Tourism is enlisting an army of musicians, ministries and local officials for a campaign to get the Komodo National Park placed on a list of seven “New Wonders” of nature.

The Switzerland-based New7Wonders Foundation has launched an online voting contest to name seven of the world’s top forests, national parks or nature preserves.

Sapta Nirwandar, the ministry’s marketing director, said on Monday that officials need to prod Indonesians into voting for its dragon park to ensure it makes the cut.

Sapta said that the ministry would employ the talents of the World Peace Orchestra, which is conducted by one of the country’s most famous musicians, Dwiki Dharmawan.

“Through the WPO, Dwiki and local and international musicians will promote ‘Vote for Komodo National Park for the New 7 Wonders’ on May 21,” he said. “But the WPO will also promote Komodo at the Javajazz festival this weekend.”

In this year’s competition, more than 260 national and multinational nominees were divided into seven groups, which are now competing for 77 slots that will be judged on July 7. The Komodo National Park on Monday stood at 13th place in its group.

“By the end of July 7, the Komodo National Park must stand at 11th place in order to pass to the third stage,” he said.

The third stage of the competition would narrow the field to 21 wonders of the world by December. Only the top three wonders of each group would make it to the next round. In the end, only one wonder in seven final groups would be declared as part of the new seven wonders of the world.

In its current group, Komodo is up against 56 national parks, such as the Subterranean River National Park in Puerta Princessa in the Philippines, the Amazon in Brazil, Eua National Park in Tonga, the Black Forest in Germany, and the Dinosaur Provincial Park of Canada.

Sapta said people can vote for the Komodo on the New7Wonders or on

“We also have communicated this campaign to the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and they are ready to help us,” Sapta said.

Separately, ministry spokesman Gatot Dewa Broto said that they were currently printing information about the Komodo National Park to distribute to schools, travel agencies, and restaurants across the country.

“But we have not had any request from [the Ministry of Culture and Tourism] to build more infrastructure in remote areas so that those people are able to vote online,” Gatot said.

In the 2007 contest to name man-made wonders, the Borobudur Buddhist temple in Yogyakarta was passed over due to a lack of votes. Sapta said he did not want to miss out again.

“Borobudur is not listed as one of the seven wonders as we did not know that we had to do to vote for it,” he said.

Komodo National Park is in East Nusa Tenggara.
