… 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. …

Zahid: Indonesian Tourists No Second-class Visitors

From Shahrullizan Rusli

MEDAN, May 1 (Bernama) -- Malaysians should not regard Indonesian tourists as second-class visitors as they are the second biggest contributor to Malaysia's tourism sector after the Arabs.

Deputy Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who made the call today, said based on that fact, the government was stepping up Visit Malaysia Year 2007 promotional efforts in the republic.

"Many of these Indonesians have high incomes, so we regard them as high-end tourists. Don't think that Indonesians only come to Malaysia for work," he told the Malaysian media before joining a motorcycle convoy on their "Tour De Indonesia 2007" programme here.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also executive chairman of the Superbikers Association of Malaysia, is leading the convoy of 50 superbikes on the 15-day trip covering 3,585km and passing through areas such as Parapat, Sibolga, Bukit Tinggi, Jambi, Palembang, Bandar Lampung, Jakarta, Bogor, Bandung, Magelang, Yogyakarta, Solo, Surabaya, Lavina and Denpasar.

"This promotion is important as most Indonesian tourists tend to visit only places like Kuala Lumpur and Genting Highlands as they know much less of other tourist spots in Malaysia," said Ahmad Zahid.

He said last year, Malaysia received 1.3 million Indonesian visitors and the Visit Malaysia Year campaign had targeted 1.5 million of them.

On the convoy, he said the group would be meeting up with local superbikers' associations and other locals to disseminate information on tourism activities in Malaysia.

North Sumatra governor Drs Rudolf M. Pardede told the Malaysian media that he was impressed with Malaysia's promotional strategies to attract more tourists to the country.

"Indonesia should learn from Malaysia which is willing to spend millions on tourism promotions, but the returns could be double."

He said Indonesia really needed a more aggressive tourism promotion as the sector had been badly affected by terrorist attacks and natural disasters.

"We are only recovering now. But the problem is, the world only knows about Bali although other areas like Sumatra have a wealth of tourism products too," he added.

The convoy expedition with 90 participants including mechanics, launched at 9am local time, is expected to end its first day in Parapat, about 200km from here.

The group arrived at Balawan Port, Indonesia yesterday onboard the Royal Malaysian Navy vessel, KD Mahawangsa.
