… 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. …

Angry minister becomes Twitter trending topic

Sita W. Dewi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Tue, 03/20/2012

State-Owned Enterprises Minister Dahlan Iskan’s move of exiting his car, which was stuck in a long queue backed up in front of a Jakarta toll gate, forcefully opening the gates of two unattended toll lanes and allowing 100 vehicles to drive through for free on Monday morning has stirred up a deal of public attention.

The minister also reportedly reprimanded state-owned toll operator PT Jasa Marga’s top management shortly after the incident.

The keyword “Dahlan Iskan” is now being named as one of the trending topics in Indonesia on Twitter today. Most of the tweets praised the minister’s move -- some of them even encouraged the media mogul to run for president in 2014.

“Mr. Dahlan Iskan FTW! He’s so cool! All public officials should have done this!” said account @jojosuherman.

Noted composer Addie MS posted on Twitter: “Dahlan Iskan let cars pass without paying toll fees to break the long queues, and reprimanded Jasa Marga’s executive director soon after. [The director] deserved that!”

Meanwhile, account @adjisdoaibu questioned the minister’s actions, asking, “Why did he do that? Couldn’t he wait? Would he be as angry as that if the queue had been caused by the President’s motorcade?”

On his Twitter account, Dahlan said he was not furious; he only wanted to break the frustrating traffic congestion.

The minister was on his way to a meeting at national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia’s office when he got caught in a line of about 30 cars waiting to enter the Semanggi toll gate in Slipi, West Jakarta at around 6 a.m.

“I was not only angry, I was extremely furious,” he was quoted as saying this morning.
