… 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. …

Festival exposes Papuan tourism charms

Nethy Dharma Somba, The Jakarta Post, Jayapura | Tue, 06/21/2011

The fourth Sentani Lake Festival, which commenced in Jayapura, Papua, on Monday, is expected to encourage the participation of local people and more foreign tourists.

“The festival aims to preserve cultural value, as well as promote wonderful Indonesia,” said Cultural and Tourism Ministry official M. Faried.

The festival will be highlighted with a performance of 1,040 daro dancers from 26 ethnic villages around Sentani Lake. Traditional boats, called Iso solo will be prepared as the performance stage.

A troop of 600 dancers will also present warring dances on the boats.

The opening ceremony on Monday drew up the curtain for 1,000 people who beat tifas, (traditional drums) from East Indonesia. The performance carried the message of the festival, which is themed “Sound of Tifa, Sound of Life.”

First held in 2008, the festival is reported to have been able to increase the number of visitors from home and abroad to experience the tourism appeal around Sentani.

“In 2008, foreign tourists accounted for only 85 people. It became 94 in 2009 and 104 in 2010. We are expecting more visitors this year,” Jayapura Regent Habel Melkias Suwae said.

Tourism observer Azril Azhari from Trisakti University Jakarta said Sentani had good prospects to be developed further into an interesting tourism site. The accessible transportation and hotels should be able to support the enrichment of Sentani’s tourism promotion and cultural attractions, he said.

Head of the organizing committee Ana Saway expected an increase in transaction value from the festival, which will run until Thursday.

“In 2010, the five-day festival could reach transactions worth Rp 6 billion [US$700,000]. Hopefully, that will increase this year,” he said.
