… 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. …

OIC lauds Indonesia for interfaith peace

The Jakarta Post, Wed, 03/04/2009 3:56 PM  

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has praised Indonesia's success in establishing peaceful relations among different religious groups, despite frequent cases of attacks on other faiths. 

"What you have achieved here is what we are trying to reach at the global level," OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said Tuesday in his lecture in Jakarta on the Islamic world and globalization. 

He was responding to a statements by Theopilus Bela, secretary-general of the Indonesian Committee on Religion for Peace, on practical steps, such as holding informal gatherings on theology for leaders of different religions in order to familiarize them with one another and minimize attacks on religious minorities. "It's good when Christians are invited to Muslim celebrations, and Muslims also come to their neighbors' Christmas celebrations," Ihsanoglu said. 

The concept of living side by side in peace while putting aside religious differences encompasses the concept of interfaith peace in Islam, he explained. 

Ihsanoglu then referred to a verse in the Koran that says, "Your religion is for you, and mine is for me." 

"What you have managed in your country is a tradition of 14 centuries in our part of the world," he added. 

Ihsanoglu said that for centuries the Islamic community in the Middle East had lived peacefully with Christians and Jews, until the age of colonialism and the establishment of Israel. 

Bela said one of his agendas was to achieve a "historical reconciliation" between Islam and Christianity, adding that such a reconciliation should be easier to achieve than one between Judaism and Christianity. 

He then cited the reconciliation between the Vatican and representatives of Judaism. 

Effective dialogues among the countries of the OIC with those outside the group are vital in solving those problems, Ihsanoglu said. 

"Dialogues in the Muslim world have not been effective for 40 years." 

He added most countries tended to carry out monologues in different directions rather than dialogues, thus reaping no real reward. 

"In the globalization era, after the bipolar period of East and West, culture and identities have become more vocal." (dis)
