… 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. …

Papua Needs Improved Welfare, Not Extra Soldiers, Yudhoyono Declares

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono says the national government will use a welfare-based approach rather than a military one to keep the peace in Papua after a deadly series of shootings on Thursday left eight soldiers dead.

At a limited cabinet meeting on Friday, the president declared that the government would continue to seek to improve the living standards of Papuans and would not intensify security arrangements in the restive provinces.

“The [security] status in Papua has not been raised, however the law still has to be enforced in any part of the Indonesian islands,” Djoko Suyanto, the coordinating minister for political, legal and security affairs, said in a press conference at the presidential palace on Friday.

The government declined to raise the number of officers in Papua but said it was prepared to send additional weapons, if needed, to hunt down the armed group.

“Bear in mind that we have a clear and firm stance on any party who is trying to disrupt public security or refuses to acknowledge the sovereignty of the unitary state of Indonesia in Papua,” Djoko said.

He said he suspected that Thursday’s shootings in Sinak were related to regional elections for which the results will be announced today, and the shootings in Tingginambut were sparked by the opening of new military posts, which made separatists feel uncomfortable.

“Indonesia and the world need to know that the military and police officers were carrying out their job to protect the sovereignty and security [of Indonesia] as well as to protect the people,” Yudhoyono said on Friday.

Former Justice and Human Rights Minister Yusril Ihza Mahendra said the state had proven itself unable to resolve conflict in Papua.

Yusril called on the government to remain calm in seeking to ease tensions in Papua. “The approach should be effective to prevent the situation from getting worse,” he said.

The former minister added that unrest in Papua was similar to that in many other parts of the world, in that it stemmed from dissatisfaction with living conditions.

“No matter what, the integration between Papua and Indonesia is part of history and it has happened. It’s been acknowledged internationally,” he said.

West Papua Regional Legislative Council deputy chairman Jimmy Demianus Ijie said that many Papuans felt they had not benefited from Indonesia’s independence and called for an empathy from the national government.

“We’ve never enjoyed Indonesia’s independence. What we have is only blood and tears,” Jimmy said in Jakarta on Friday, adding that his people were frustrated at the lack of delivery on regular promises of improvements by the government.

Jimmy called on the government to build a dialogue with the Papuan people and not take a heavy-handed approach to security.

“Let’s talk about our unity. Why is the government afraid of opening a dialogue with Papua? Today, there are many military personnel in plain clothes in Papua, as if a big war is happening here,” he said.

He added that Papuan people love Indonesia but want to be freed from poverty and want to look after the interests of their children and grandchildren.

Indonesia officially annexed Papua in 1969 with a UN-backed vote, seen by many as a sham, and tensions have persisted.
