… 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. …

Indonesia Open Introduces Local Culture to the Rest of the World

Organizers of the BCA Indonesia Open Superseries Premier were serious when they pledged to introduce the country’s cultures to foreign participants of the $750,000 tournament.

After presenting an off-court event where athletes and officials enjoyed a demonstration of the making of wayang golek (traditional Indonesian puppets) in a welcome dinner, organizers brought a little bit of the country’s culture on court.

In Saturday’s semifinals, umpires and service judges on duty were all seen wearing red batik-patterned shirts while supervising the matches.

“This is our first year with the new sponsor and we are looking for something new,” said Mimi Irawan, the organizers’ deputy tournament manager.

“To go along with the theme of the tournament, ‘Spirit of The Nation,’ we want Indonesia to be recognized as a country rich with its cultures, and one of them is batik.”

It’s not the first time all shuttlers and match officials were involved in cultural activities. In previous editions of the event, some shuttlers were dressed as human puppets at the welcome dinner.

These activities received a positive response from local and international shuttlers and officials. Gilles Cavert, a French umpire, expressed his excitement over the organizers’ effort.

“It’s the decision of the organizers for us to wear batik. Today we’re wearing red, tomorrow blue. Maybe it’s the organizers’ way to say thank you. We’re also proud to wear it. It’s very nice. I like the color and the design,” said the Frenchman who has been serving as international umpire since the 1990s.

Cavert, who witnessed Susi Susanti and Alan Budikusuma win Indonesia’s first Olympic gold medals in Barcelona back in 1992, said the Indonesia Open is the only tournament where foreign participants see with their own eyes how much the nation loves badminton.
