… 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. …

School offers training to preserve royal culture

Slamet Susanto, The Jakarta Post, Yogyakarta | Tue, 10/05/2010

A pawiyatan cultural school was set up by the Yogyakarta Palace to provide special training to palace servants or abdi dalem in a hope to preserve Javanese traditions and culture at the royal palace.

Yogyakarta royal ruler Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono X recently inaugurated the school in a traditional ceremony attended by members of the palace servants and soldiers.

“Abdi dalem must master the knowledge and culture of Jawa Ngayogyakarta,” said Sri Sultan, referring to Yogyakarta’s Javanese traditions and culture.

Abdi dalem, he said, was part of the culture, meaning its members must master the culture and the very detailed aspects of the palace.

Mastering them, he said, would create a cultural bastion of the nation in the era of global cultural

The palace official, Gusti Bendoro Pengeran Haryo (GBPH) Gusti Joyokusumo, said the school was set up to comprehensively preserve Yogyakarta’s traditions and culture as well as its royal values and philosophy.

Previously, members of the palace’s abdi dalem were recruited without being given specialized training, posing the risk that they may lack understanding on the palace’s values and philosophy,
he added.

“In the hope of ensuring the abdi dalem really understands and appreciates the palace culture, the pawiyatan must be formed,” Joyo-kusumo said.

The pawiyatan school will be opened periodically, and in its initial stage it is predicted to accommodate 100 abdi dalem apprentices. Two meetings will be held on a weekly basis and each training session will last for a month.

“After completing the training, participants will obtain certificates from the palace,” said Joyokusumo, adding that participants would also receive lessons on the royal language, governance and palace ranks.
