… 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. …

Jakarta. Jakarta’s controversial Buddha Bar must immediately close, the Central Jakarta District Court ruled on Wednesday.

The court also ordered the owners, Nireta Vista Creative, as well as Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo and the Jakarta Tourism Agency to pay a fine totalling Rp 1 billion ($111,000) to the plaintiffs, the Anti-Buddha Bar Forum, for mental distress.

The forum fined the Nireta Vista Creative for blasphemy and violations of laws mandating respect for state-sanctioned religions.

The group has previously criticized the bar’s use of Buddha’s name and Buddhist decorations. The bar is part of an international chain of bars.

Judge FX Jiwo Santoso, who read the verdict, said Fauzi and the tourism agency had been fined for allowing the company to operate in Jakarta.

“The [Governor] did not respond pro-actively in the case and the agency has failed to consider the religious and cultural development in the society and ended up offending them,” Jiwo continued.

Defense lawyer Kurnia Girsang from Juniver Girsang & Partners told reporters after the verdict that the company would appeal.

“We disagree with the verdict, the issue here is about the brand name and should have been taken to the trade court not the civil court. However, the judges have their own consideration and we will respect that,” he said.

The courtroom was flooded with forum supporters who cheered when the verdict was read.

Several police officers were standing by during the hearing though the Betawi Brotherhood Forum (FBR) and the Red-and-White Troops ((Laskar Merah Putih), who made several appearances during previous hearings, were seen.
