… 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. …

New service for owners of fire extinguishers


The Jakarta Post
, Jakarta

A fire safety and security products distribution company on Thursday launched a new service in Jakarta and eight other cities that will cut the time it takes residents to refill their fire extinguishers.

Gunnebo Indonesia, also known as PT Indolok Bakti Utama, has introduced 10 "refill cars" in Jakarta, Medan, Pekanbaru, Palembang, Bandung, Semarang, Surabaya, Denpasar and Balikpapan, according to Shirley Tamtomo, an executive with the company.

Two of the cars will operate in Jakarta, and one each in the other eight cities.

"The cars will allow our company to do the refilling process without having to bring the extinguishers to the company's depository," Shirley said during a launch ceremony here for the new service.

"Customers only need to call us. Then we will come and do the refilling process on the spot."

Shirley said it used to take two to three days for the company to complete the entire refilling process, because it had to pick up the expired fire extinguishers from each customer, bring the extinguishers to the company's depository, refill the devices and deliver them back to the customers.

The refill cars are equipped with everything required for the refill process, and can serve different types of extinguishers, whether they use halotron, powder or foam.

"We will review the effectiveness of these cars within a year. If it is considered a success, then we will expand the car deployment to the other 25 company branches all over Indonesia," Shirley said.

The company's country manager, Hindra C. Kurniawan, said the firm had been established in Jakarta since 1972, and had around 40,000 to 50,000 customers, including factories, shopping centers, banks, hospitals, office buildings and hotels.

"Every year, we have between 3,000 and 4,000 new customers nationwide, with around 5,000 to 7,000 devices needed to be refilled every month," he said.

Shirley said fire extinguishers should be refilled at least every two years.

"Until now, we import the powder and foam medium (for extinguishers) from Spain, and the halotron from the United States. Refill prices depend on the medium and the device's size. For a two-kilogram powder refill, it will cost around Rp 100,000," Shirley said.

"There are also lots of people who have fire extinguishers, but not all of them know how to use them. Our trained employees will teach these people how to use and maintain the devices."

According to the city's fire agency, there were 853 fires in Jakarta last year, down from the 902 in 2006. Forty-five of the fires in 2007 occurred in high population density areas. (uwi/tif)
