… 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. …

Indonesian minorities protest religious intolerance

JAKARTA — Around 200 Christian, Muslim Shiite and Ahmadiyah leaders protested in the Indonesian capital Jakarta on Monday against growing religious intolerance in the Sunni Muslim-majority country.

The rally of minority groups followed the demolition of a church and the closure of an Ahmadi mosque, both in Bekasi, east of Jakarta, in recent weeks after pressure from Muslim hardliners.

The leaders -- most of whom were Christian -- gathered outside the parliament building, singing the country's national anthem and shouting "we have rights" and "stop intolerance".

They also waved Indonesian flags and banners emblazoned with photographs of the demolished church and sealed Ahmadi mosque.

"It's a basic human right to be able to practise one's faith in peace. Aren't we all Indonesians, why are we treated like the hated stepson?" Guido Suprapto, a pastor from the Bishops' Conference of Indonesia, told AFP.

The group also met with the chairman of the national legislature, Taufiq Kiemas, to demand President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono do more to protect minorities and guarantee religious freedom.

"The president must do something to stop the serious violence and discrimination against us and accommodate the needs of various faiths to have a house of worship," Suprapto said.

While Christians and Ahmadis -- who do not believe Mohammed was the last prophet and are regarded as heretics by hardliners in Indonesia -- have seen their places of worship closed, Shiites have been subjected to violent attacks.

In August, a mob of hundreds armed with sickles and swords hacked a Shiite man to death and torched more than 30 houses in the town of Sampang, East Java province.

Shiites and Sunnis agree on the fundamentals of Islam, but disagree over the question of who were the true successors of Prophet Mohammed as leaders of the emerging Muslim community.

Ninety percent of Indonesia's 240 million people identify themselves as Muslim but the constitution guarantees freedom of religion.
