… 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. …

Australia offers Indonesia prisoner swap in 11th-hour bid to save drug pair

Australia has asked Indonesia to accept a prisoner swap to save the lives of two drug smugglers facing imminent execution. Lawmakers held a candlelit vigil for the pair in the capital.

Deutsche Welle, 5 March 2015

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop told the ABC that she had suggested a prisoner swap with Jakarta in a phone call with her Indonesian counterpart. The idea is to repatriate three Indonesian drug criminals in Australia for Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, convicted Australian drug smugglers whom Indonesia says it will execute soon by firing squad.

"I've spoken to her (Indonesian foreign minister Retno Marsudi) on a number of occasions about this, and I wanted to explore any other avenues or opportunities to save the lives of these two young men who have been so remarkably rehabilitated," Bishop said.

"She undertook to pass on my comments to the president."

Chan, 31, and Sukumaran, 33, were convicted in 2006 as the ringleaders of the so-called 'Bali Nine' group, caught in 2005 trying to smuggle 8.3 kilograms (18.3 pounds) of heroin out of Bali. Sentences in the case ranged from 15 years' jail to death.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo, a vocal supporter of capital punishment, has refused to grant the pair clemency.

Chan and Sukumaran were transfered to the Indonesian prisonisland of Nusakambangan on Wednesday for execution. No date has yet been set, however. They are among several other foreigners due to be executed soon.

Bishop's comments followed an impromptu candlelight vigil outside parliament house in Canberra early on Thursday, attended by lawmakers. Prime Minister Tony Abbott said he had requested another telephone call with Widodo to asked for the men's lives to be spared.

"We respect Indonesia and we honor the frienship that we have with Indonesia, but we stand up for our values and for our citizens, and these are Australian citizens in extremis," Abbott said.

An Indonesian foreign ministry spokesman cast doubt on the legality of a prisoner swap.
"Basically to our understanding, in our legal system, we do not have such a mechanism so I don't know how this would pan out," Arrmanatha Nasir told news agency AFP.
