… 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. …

Ritz Carlton to open new resort on Bintan

The Jakarta Post, Fadli, Batam

Ritz Carlton is to open a new resort in the Bintan Resort Tourism Zone on Bintan island in Riau Islands province by the end of 2008 at a total cost of US$65 million.

The 77,000-square meter resort, which will boast 60 villas, is expected to attract more tourists to the area, Bintan Resort Development Corp.'s public relations manager Nia Firtica said Tuesday in Batam.

The resort, the construction of which will start in July, will also have a conference center that can accommodate 600 people.

It is expected to be fully operational by the end of next year and will create 200 new jobs.

Nia said that Ritz Carlton would manage the resort, which would be built by PT Pacific Palace Jakarta.

Ritz Carlton currently manages 63 hotels throughout the world, one of which is located in Jakarta and one in Bali. It is developing 35 more hotels in a number of different countries.

Besides the Ritz Carlton resort, Malaysian property company Landmark Holdings is also planning to build a large resort on the island. "The construction of the resort, which will be called Waterfront City, will begin next year," Nia said.

According to Nia, the Ritz Carlton and other tourist projects had been encouraged by the development of the Singapore Integrated Resort, which was due to open on the island in 2010.

"The investors' main reason for developing projects here is the steady increase of the number of tourists visiting the island," Nia explained.

At least 333,000 tourists from Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, India and the Middle East visit the island annually. The Bintan Resort Tourism Zone was inaugurated in 1996.

With a total area of 23,000 hectares, the special resort zone, which is less than an hour by ferry from Singapore, so far houses five hotels and resorts built at a total cost of $4.8 billion, and employs 4,500 workers.
