… 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. …

Jakarta Fair to showcase the nation in a nutshell

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Jakarta's annual month-long fun and shopping spree -- Pekan Raya Jakarta, the 2007 Jakarta Fair -- is just around the corner, with the city administration announcing Monday it had already begun registration for participants.

The administration said, as of last week, 1,500 participants from small and middle-sized enterprises to top companies had already registered for the event, which is scheduled from June 14 to July 15.

The number of participants is already 25 percent higher than last year's figure of 1,200.

Governor Sutiyoso said he wanted the event to give a boost to the local economy.

The governor said he was targeting a 10 percent increase in trade from Rp 500 billion last year (US$54.9 million) to Rp 550 billion this year.

He said he was sure new municipalities would join in the event.

"They need to introduce themselves and their products through this fair," he said.

Indonesia has 33 provinces and 440 municipalities. Before the 2001 autonomy law, the figure was 27 provinces and 297 municipalities.

The president director of PT Jakarta International Expo, the organizer of the Jakarta Fair, Hartati Murdaya said he hoped this year's Jakarta Fair would effectively present Indonesia in a microcosm, with visitors being able to see products from all the country's provinces.

She said one more exhibition hall had been added this year.

"Last year we only used halls A,B and C but this year we're also going to use Hall D, which has 12,000 square meters of space," she explained.

Vendors and producers of a wide variety of goods, from traditional handicrafts to car accessories, will join in the exhibition and festival.

The fair, which offers concerts, traditional dances and street magicians, never fails to draw large numbers of both Jakartans and people from outside the city.

Hartati said she expected the number of visitors to exceed last year's crowd of 2.5 million.

The ticket price for this year's fair will be Rp 15,000 per person from Monday to Friday and Rp 20,000 per person for Saturday, Sunday and national holidays.
