… 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. …

MUSCAT — The tourism industry in Indonesia is witnessing a boom as the nation celebrates the highest number of foreign arrivals since 2001. In 2007, a total of six million tourists are expected.

Thamrin Bachri, director-general of tourism at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, Indonesia, said that the government is focusing on visitors from the Middle East.

Around 60,000 tourists from the region visited in 2006 and about 100,000 visitors are being projected for this year and 150,000 for 2008.

The 80 per cent of tourists came from Saudi Arabia and followed by 18,000 to 20,000 tourists from Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

To facilitate easy travel, the government has introduced a visa-on-arrival scheme for tourists from Oman, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain.

The cost of visa is $25 for one month.

Thamrin said with 90 per cent of the Indonesians being Muslims, visitors from the Arab world can feel at home with nearly all hotels in Java are equipped with special rooms for prayer and food which are of the safe standards.

While no direct flights are available from Muscat, airlines from the neighbouring countries with more Indonesian expatriates operate directly to Jakarata with some even connecting to the tourist attraction of Bali. All international airports in Indonesia have Arabic signboards.

Thamrin admitted that travel from Oman is on the costlier side in the absence of direct links but he said things would change in the coming years with more airlines operating to Oman, which is also a major tourist destination.

Travellers to Indonesia, especially soccer fans, can witness AFC to be co-hosted by four nations-Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

Bahrain, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Qatar will represent the Arab world.

Games will take place in Gelora Bungkarno Stadium in Jakarta from July 7 to 29. The stadium has a good pitch and has undergone renovations to invite visitors from many Asian countries.

There is a meeting of the travel industry in Bali from September 25 to 28 for PATA Travel Mart with delegates from all over the world attending the event.

The year 2008 is seen as ‘Visit Indonesia Year’ with the government targeting seven million arrivals to mark the anniversary of the nation’s Awakening Day, which will be celebrated with huge number of events and concerts.
