… 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. …

Bali bombings remembered ten years on

Deutsche Welle, 12 October 2012

Bali has marked the 10 year anniversary of the 2002 nightclub bombings with an emotional ceremony. Some 202 people, including 88 Australians, were killed in the attack.

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, pictured on the left above, joined survivors and relatives of the dead who gathered on the Indonesian island on Friday to remember the victims of twin blasts.

"This is a day of contesting emotions from anger and unamended loss to forgiveness and reconciliation with a bitter past," Julia Gillard said. "Perhaps there is a grim reassurance in knowing that the terrorists did not achieve what they set out to do," she added. 

The Padi club was a target of the
blast ten years ago
Addressing mourners at the emotional ceremony, Indonesian embassy charge d'affaires Wiwiek Setyawati Firman said all Indonesians felt anger "as to why this happened and why this happened in Bali".

"Ten years on the pain of the loss still remains and we will remember them forever," she said.

Also in attendance were the Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa, on the right in the picture above, and John Howard, the Australian prime minister at the time of the attack. Separate ceremonies were held across Australia in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, the Gold Coast, and the capital, Canberra.

On October 12, 2002, suicide bombers targetted the island's Kuta party strip, killing 202 people. Among the dead were 164 foreigners from 21 nations. For Australia, the Bali bombs were the worst peacetime attack on its citizens.

The al Qaeda-linked South-East Asian terrorist network Jemaah Islamiyah has been blamed for the atrocity. In 2003, 23 people were handed sentences ranging from five years to death for their role in the bombings. Three were executed in 2008.

Security was tight in Bali in the days leading up to the anniversary amid concerns of a possible terrorist attack. Police warned Wednesday that they had received "credible information" that the ceremony may be targeted.
