… 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. …

22 countries to participate in Lombok expo

Panca Nugraha, The Jakarta Post, Mataram | Tue, 10/12/2010

At least 118 buyers from 22 countries have announced their participation in the four-day Tourism Indonesia Mart and Expo (TIME) 2010 event, which begins Tuesday in Senggigi, West Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB).

Held in cooperation with the Indonesian Tourism Promotion Board, the NTB Tourism Promotion Board (BPPD), the Culture and Tourism Ministry and other stakeholders, the event features 104 sellers from the country’s 13 provinces, including NTB.

The event is being hosted at The Santosa Villas and Resort, as it was last year, but the opening ceremony will be held on Gili Trawangan, a resort island off Lombok.

“We want to produce a different nuance this time,” NTB BPPD chairman Awanadi Awisnabawa said Monday.

NTB Governor Zainul Majdi is scheduled to open the event, accompanied by the Culture and Tourism Ministry’s Director General of Marketing Sapta Nirwandar.

The buyers, Awanadi said, come from the United States, Germany, Canada, Spain, Hungary, Australia, South Africa, Japan, South Korea, China, India, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates.

The sellers represent Jakarta, Bali, Central Java, West Java, North Sumatra, Lampung, Central Sulawesi, South Sulawesi, North Sulawesi and East Kalimantan.

“TIME 2010 presents all tourist destinations including newly developed tourist areas, eco-tourism and marine tourism,” Awanadi said.

Participants are also invited to visit tourist spots in West Lombok and Central Lombok as well as to climb the challenging Mount Rinjani.

Organizer Ressy Salim of Patco Convex Ltd., said TIME 2010 was expected to yield up to 145 transactions worth US$19.5 million. “We are optimistic of reaching that figure,” Ressy said.

Last year, TIME made $17 million in transactions involving 117 buyers from 24 countries, and 200 sellers from 16 provinces.

The optimism was a result of several new tourism destinations on offer as well as the participation of new buyers from India, China and the Middle East, she said.

TIME has been held 16 times since 1994 and has been mentioned in international event calendars, such as  World Travel Mart.

Sales at the event, Ressy said, were usually followed up by the respective parties during the International ITB Berlin event held every March.

The event is expected to help the province meet its target of receiving a million tourists within two years, under its Visit Lombok Sumbawa 2012 program.

“We have between 600,000 and 700,000 tourists visiting the province annually,” NTB Culture and Tourism Agency head Lalu Gita Aryadi said.
