… 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. …

The Army plans to allow women to train as officers for the first time in the force’s history, as part of sweeping reforms that the Army chief has vowed to usher in ahead of his retirement later this year.

Gen. Pramono Edhie Wibowo, the Army chief of staff, announced on Thursday that of the 192 Army cadets that the Military Academy planned to recruit this year, 16 would be women.

He said the move was part of efforts to improve gender equality in the Army.

“They will train alongside their male counterparts and go through the same activities,” he said of the female cadets.

This will mark the first time in the Army’s history that women will be allowed to train as officers at the Military Academy. Upon graduating, the lowest rank they can hold is that of second lieutenant.

Previously, female Army personnel seeking to attain that rank or higher had to start out as enlisted personnel or non-commissioned officers before being promoted through the ranks.

Pramono said the change was part of wider efforts at military reforms that he hoped to introduce before retiring in May.

“We call on young men and women with a nationalistic spirit who want to help the country to join the Army,” he said.

The general also vowed to end the practice of officers demanding bribes from applicants to the Military Academy or to any Army recruitment office.

“For the Army, whether you’re applying to be an enlisted personnel, a non-commissioned officer or an officer, there are no fees to pay,” he said.

“If anyone is asked to pay a bribe during the recruitment process, please report it. I assure you we will follow up against the officer in question, no matter their rank.”

He added there would be no shortcuts for cadets looking for an easy pass.

“Whether a cadet graduates depends solely on that cadet’s abilities, and not the influence of other people,” Pramono said.
