… 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. …

Saudi Prince Alwaleed may invest in Indonesia's hotel industry

Wahyudi Soeriaatmadja, The Jakarta Post - 2007-04-02 14:40

Jakarta, April 2, 2007 (Bloomberg) - Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the world's 13th-richest man, said he may invest in hotels in Indonesia, a day after the government passed laws making it easier for overseas companies to build properties.

"We are looking at certain opportunities in the hotel industry that will hopefully materialize in the coming months," Alwaleed told reporters in Jakarta after meeting Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono Friday.

Value of the possible investment "will depend on the location, size of the projects, and discussions we have with the owners." Alwaleed has a 55 percent stake in Kingdom Hotel Investments, which has interests in 33 hotels and resorts, including the Four Seasons George V in Paris.

Kingdom Hotel, which earlier this month teamed up with Ayala Land Inc., the Philippines' biggest developer, wants to expand in Asia to offset the impact of conflict in the Middle East, which has deterred visitors to Lebanon and Egypt.

The Middle East accounts for about half of its assets, with Egypt and Lebanon representing 18 percent each, according to the company's Web site.

President Yudhoyono wants to give equal treatment to overseas and domestic investors in a bid to attract US$22 billion of investment annually and help boost economic growth to an average 6.6 percent a year.

On March 29, Indonesia's Parliament passed a government proposed law to give tax breaks to investors and ease bureaucratic hurdles.

The new law seeks to ease government rules and slash the number of days required to obtain land-use rights in Southeast Asia's biggest economy.

The law also pledges tax incentives including on income tax and an exemption from tariffs on imported machinery.

"The investment law that was passed by Parliament here will encourage people, investors to come to Indonesia," Alwaleed said in a press briefing.

Prince Alwaleed is the world's 13th-richest man with $20.3 billion, according to Forbes magazine. He raised $398 million in an initial public offering of Kingdom Hotel in February 2006, selling shares at $9.25.

Kingdom Hotel teamed up with Ayala Land to build a $153 million hotel and residence complex in Makati, Manila.
