… 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. …

Indonesia's Aceh makes 'remarkable' tsunami recovery

BBC News, 22 December 2010

Indonesia's Aceh province has made a "remarkable" recovery after the devastating 2004 tsunami but many serious challenges remain.

Aceh lags behind the rest of Indonesia in terms of health,
poverty and development, says the UNDP
A UN Development Programme report said rebuilding had been impressive in Aceh.

But it added that more needed to be done to lessen the impact of natural disasters and to reduce poverty.

In December 2004, a quake off the coast of Aceh triggered a tsunami in the Indian Ocean, which killed a quarter of a million people in 13 countries.

Aceh sits on the volatile "ring of fire", a belt of tectonic activity that triggers earthquakes and volcanoes.

'Remarkable progress'

The UNDP report, which was requested by the Aceh administration, said the region's recovery was "beyond anything imaginable six years ago".

"The people of Aceh have achieved remarkable progress in the physical rebuilding of their communities, yet similar advances in key human development indicators remain elusive," the report said.

In terms of poverty, life expectancy and other quality of life measurements, Aceh lags behind the rest of Indonesia.

"Long years of military and political struggle, coupled with changing economic conditions and continuing natural disasters, have left Aceh today as one of the poorest provinces in Indonesia," the report said.

A year after the tsunami, Aceh's separatists signed a peace deal with Jakarta and now dominate local government. The report said Aceh had made "impressive gains in participation in the political arena".

However, it found that women were "still largely under-represented in decision-making at the community level" and that domestic violence was a "major concern".

This first Aceh Human Development Report is based on data from 2008, the latest year for which figures are available.
