… 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. …

Politicians Rally Around Komodo Tourism Drive

The inclusion of the East Nusa Tenggara island of Komodo in the list of the “New 7 Wonders of Nature” in 2011, has seen increasing numbers of domestic and foreign visitors flock to Labuan Bajo, Flores, the sole entry point to the island, but tourism development remains slow.

Former Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla said he hoped the island’s popularity would see a multiplier effect that could encourage the government to build better infrastructure in the area.

“We are all doing our best in turning Bali, Lombok as well as the Komodo village into good tourism destinations. The first things that are needed for tourism are discipline and hygiene,” he said.

Kalla added that locals needed to be helped to improve their language skills, both English and Indonesian, as well as their professionalism and hospitality in welcoming guests.

“The biggest challenge for a tourist area is the change of lifestyle from a more closed community to a more open one.”

In an effort to further boost Komodo’s tourism industry, the Trade Ministry is exhibiting local products during the Sail Komodo yachting event, which will be attended by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Saturday.

“The exhibition will become an effective promotional event to introduce various local products to international buyers and investors attending the Sail Komodo event,” the Trade Ministry’s Pradnyawati said.

She said the natural riches of East Nusa Tenggara remained far from being optimally developed and therefore made little contribution to the lives of local residents.

Products in the exhibition include textiles, food, hunting accessories as well as locally made jewelry and fashion accessories.

“The world has now turned its eyes on Sail Komodo 2013. It is hoped that many would be able to see [Komodo’s] natural potential and the variety of products here in Indonesia,” she added.
