… 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. …

SBY Set to Open WTO Conference in Bali

Presidential spokesperson Julian Aldrin Pasha confirmed that President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will be opening the ninth World Trade Organization Ministerial Conference in Bali this week.

“The president will be opening the WTO conference, which will be attended by trade ministers from 167 countries. The president will be leaving for Bali on Tuesday,” Julian said on Sunday.

An estimated 10,000 delegations from across the globe will be attending the conference, where Indonesian Trade Minister Gita Wirjawan will lead discussions on global trade issues.

According to reports by the Indonesian news agency Antara, thousands of police officers have been deployed to secure the WTO conference, which is scheduled to run from Tuesday until Friday.

“The Bali Police will be preparing everyone to secure the WTO [conference],” Bali Police operational chief Sr. Comr. I Gede Alit Widana said on Sunday, declining to specify the number of officers tasked to secure the event.

Aside from the Bali Police, security measures on the island will also be aided by police units from West, Central, and East Java, all of which will help with security convoys, intelligence activities, technical issues and counterterrorism measures, among others.

“The National Police will also help with security. Security activities will be carried out from Dec. 1 to 7,” he said.

Alit also said the police would be anticipating activities by entities who oppose the conference.

“There are activities [by groups] who are looking to disrupt the WTO,” he said, adding that several international and local organizations have been given permits to hold discussion forums to oppose the event.

The forum, he said, will be held at the Ngurah Rai gymnasium in Denpasar and will be attended by 800 people.

Those participating in the discussion, however, will not be allowed to enter the Bali Tourism Development Corporation area in Nusa Dua, where the WTO conference will take place.

“They are not allowed to enter Nusa Dua over concerns there would be a clash,” Alit explained. “We are doing our best to secure the WTO and make sure the event progresses well and safely.”

Among those who have voiced concerns over the WTO conference is Gunawan, chief executive of the Indonesian Human Rights Committee for Social Justice (IHCS), who questioned whether the WTO conference would be in line with values supporting peace, justice and order in the world.

“Or is it, rather, Indonesia that is being held down for the sake of domination and control by Western countries, monopoly by transnational corporations and the liberalization of agriculture, human resources as well as trade,” Gunawan said in Jakarta on Friday.

Members of the G33 group of developing nations led by India are demanding changes to the WTO’s Agreement on Agriculture so that they can offer greater subsidies to farmers.

According to the agreement, subsidies cannot total over 10 percent of production.

Gunawan emphasized that Indonesia should reject moves to minimize agriculture and fisheries subsidies and the liberalization of food imports.

He added that discussions surrounding agriculture issues in the WTO should be put to an end.
