… 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. …

Indonesia`s ecotourism needs serious management, expert says

Tokyo (ANTARA News) - Indonesia`s ecotoursim needs to be managed in a serious way so that it will attract foreign tourists as this archipelagic country has great potentials in the sector, a Japanese ecotourism expert said.

Prof Yoichiro Takanashi, director of the Japanese Ecotourism Society (JES), said here Tuesday Indonesia should develop its ecotourism sector in the long term as it would be of great benefit and increase the people`s awareness about the need to conserve the environment.

According to him, foreign tourists would be interested in visiting Indonesia if they knew the country had a clear concept of ecotourism development.

Ecotourism development could also help improve the local economy and create activities in international trade on a bigger scale, he said.

He said Japan already had a law on ecotourism which would come into force in April, 2008.

The law permanently protects Japan`s culture and natural wealth including its economic potentials.

The motto "Back to nature" was the philosophical basis as well as the appreciation that nature as the home of human beings is also able to sustain them (human beings), the lecturer at Cyber University in Japan said.

Takanashi further said ecotourism development should be focused, have infrastructure support and information backup.

Indonesia`s ecotourism should be promoted frequently and sustainably as in principle the Japanese public and other foreign tourists sufficiently knew Indonesia but they did not know much about its ecotourism except those in Bali and Yogyakarta, he said.

The promotions should also cover other interesting places like local cultural and natural tourist sites as well as other supporting facilities, he said.

Takanashi also said broad and various promotion activities at new locations in Indonesia could give new information to foreign tourists and local people.

Paticipants in the International Ecotourism Business Forum in Wosobo on December 2 were concerned over the concept of Indonesia`s ecotourism which tended to meet local people`s tastes.

Marketing Director General of the Tourism Ministry, Thamrin Bachri, said ecotourism development should be related to nature conservation and the `taste` of foreign tourists.

"Not only should foreign tourists be served but also directly involved in natural conservation activities," he said.

General Manager of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia for Japan, South Korea, China and the United States, Arif Wibowo, said he supported the promotion of Indonesia`s ecotourism abroad but it should consider the taste of foreign tourists.

"They tend to buy products with information on efforts to conserve nature. They will not buy products resulting from efforts to damage the environment," he said.
