… 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. …

Prabowo, Jokowi Break Fast With Yudhoyono in a Gesture of Peace

Jakarta. President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono invited presidential candidates Prabowo Subianto and Joko Widodo with their respective running mates to a fast-breaking gathering at the State Palace, in a move to cool down the heated situation as the national polling commission prepares to announce the vote count results on Tuesday.

The president told both pairs of candidates to ensure a peaceful and democratic election process, avoiding violence and conflicts that could divide the nation.

He said that were the nation to be divided, it would be very difficult to rebridge the rift and heal wounds from the conflict.

“The price would be very costly to the nation,” he said. “That’s why maintaining a peaceful and democratic election is the responsibility of us all. All of us should work together to make sure the final process of our election ends in peace.”

He cited Palestine and Ukraine as illustrations of the suffering wrought by ruptured nations.

“We see what happens to our brothers in Gaza. It’s a tragedy of humanity that we condemn and want to avoid,” Yudhoyono said, adding that division among Palestinians themselves, as well as Arab nations and the wider Muslim community, had enabled “outsiders” to wreak havoc within.

In Ukraine, Yudhoyono said, division between the people had caused a bloody civil war with countless victims.

He added that the deaths of innocent people aboard the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down over eastern Ukraine on Thursday showed the ripple effect of conflict.

“I have called Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak to express my condolences,” Yudhoyono said.

Indonesian legislative and presidential elections have been largely peaceful, with almost two-thirds of Indonesian voters turned out at polling stations.

The camps of both candidates have praised Yudhoyono’s administration for overseeing a calm and civil election.

“We thank President SBY, the military chief and the National Police chief, and the KPU [General Elections Commission] for this democratic and peaceful election,” said Maruarar Sirait, a member of Joko’s campaign team.

Meanwhile, the military and police announced that they had prepared a joint force of 22,000 personnel around the KPU headquarters in Central Jakarta to secure Tuesday’s final announcement of the results from the July 9 ballot. Throughout Indonesia, the military is deploying 33,000 personnel to secure conflict-prone areas.

National Police Chief Gen. Sutarman said police officers were set to handle any fallout from Tuesday’s announcement.

He called on supporters from both sides not to come to the KPU office because it would increase the potential for a clash.

“We can guarantee to the public that there will be no clashes during the announcement, and we ask them to go about their activities as usual,” he said.

Joko also instructed his supporters not to take to the streets or go to the KPU.

“Just stay home and pray,” he said, adding he would be in his hometown of Solo, Central Java, for the announcement.

While Prabowo said he would respect the official vote count by the KPU, dismissing talk that there would be riots should he lose the election, he nevertheless claimed the election was unfair and not credible — signaling he might take the matter to the Constitutional Court. “It’s tainted,” he said. “We question its legitimacy.”
