… 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. …

Governor Says Monas to Get Its Own Demonstration Corner

The days of demonstrators converging on the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle are numbered.

The Jakarta administration said it would soon designate an area in National Monument (Monas) Park where protesters could convene and hold rallies.

Governor Fauzi Bowo said the convergence of people at the famous traffic circle was causing damage to the structure, particularly the fountain.

“People who come together [at the traffic circle] often cause damage to the ornaments in the fountain,” Bowo said, as quoted by state-run news agency Antara on Sunday. “Whether it’s the broken concrete edges that are repeatedly stamped on by people or the water spouts that have been clogged by garbage.”

Last week, the city administration announced that it was setting aside Rp 2 billion ($212,000) to make over the fountain in time for Christmas.

Activists have long preferred to hold rallies at the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle, situated on Jalan MH Thamrin, because of the number of people who pass through the area and its proximity to hotels and establishments where foreigners stay and visit.

The planned demonstration area in Monas, located about a kilometer from the traffic circle, will be able to accommodate up to 10,000 people, Fauzi said.

The governor said t he specially designated section would be located at the junction of Jalan Medan Merdeka Selatan and Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat.

However, Fauzi did not say when the area would be ready to accommodate demonstrations.

“The entrance gate [to the monument] will be pushed back 50 to 100 meters from its current position,” Fauzi said. “We are also going to set up a stage where demonstrators can speak.”

“Of course protesters need to secure a permit from the police first before going there,” the governor added.

Fauzi’s decision to move protests away from the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle comes on the heels of a rally that was canceled by the governor late last month.

Members of the Anticorruption Civil Society Coalition (Kompak) were scheduled to hold a rally on Nov. 29, a car-free Sunday in the city, but were turned away at the last minute on the order of Fauzi.

Authorities demanded the protesters disperse, accusing them of violating a 2007 bylaw on public order.

Fauzi reportedly said that he would no longer issue permits for personal events at the traffic circle, saying they would be limited to car-free Sundays and sports events.

The governor’s actions drew criticism from activists, experts and even Home Affairs Minister Gamawan Fauzi.

According to the governor, however, Monas is just as strategically located as the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle and will be able to attract large crowds, without the attendant property damage.
