… 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. …

Pertamina cuts fuel prices for industry by 14.5% average

Alfian, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 11/15/2008 10:59 AM  

State oil and gas company PT Pertamina has cut the prices of fuels sold to industries by an average of 14.58 percent following a decline in global oil prices. 

Effective today, the price of gasoline for industries dropped 22 percent from the last price on Nov. 1. 

The price of kerosene was cut by 8.6 percent, industrial diesel oil by 7.2 percent, high speed diesel (HSD) by 8.8 percent, boiler diesel fuel (diesel V10) by 12.3 percent, and marine fuel oil (MFO) by 28.6 percent, the company said in a statement Friday. 

In Greater Jakarta, gasoline dropped to Rp 6,600 (57.39 U.S. cents) per liter, kerosene to Rp 7,409.82 (64.43 U.S. cents) per liter, diesel to Rp 6,951.41 (60.44 U.S. cents) per liter, HSD to Rp 6,473.72 (56.29 U.S. cents) per liter, Diesel V10 to Rp 5,879.72 (51.12 U.S. cents) per liter and MFO to Rp 4,022.59 (34.98 U.S. cents). 

All these prices include a 10 percent value-added tax and for Premium gasoline and diesel a 5 percent vehicle fuels tax. 

Pertamina said the price cuts were due to the decrease of Mid Oil Platts Singapore (MOPS) fuel prices by between 7.2 and 28.6 percent and the weakening of the rupiah by about 15 percent. 

The price cuts have narrowed the gap between the prices of non-subsidized fuels and those of subsidized fuels. 

The government subsidizes four types of fuels: Premium gasoline, diesel, kerosene and three-kilogram-canister LPG. The current subsidized prices are Rp 6,000 per liter for Premium gasoline, Rp 5,500 per liter for diesel and Rp 2,500 per liter for kerosene. 

Last week, the government decided to cut the price of subsidized Premium gasoline by Rp 500, or 8.3 percent, effective Dec. 1. The government said it would continue to adjust it monthly. 

Asked about the possibility that government might also reduce the price of subsidized diesel, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry Purnomo Yusgiantoro said the ministry would continue to monitor all influential variables on prices. 

Purnomo said the government's decision on pricing of subsidized fuels was not only based on global crude oil prices, but also on the rate of the rupiah against the U.S dollar and the availability of the budgeted subsidy allocation. 

Subsidy spending has reached Rp. 136.6 trillion ($11.8 billion) as of November, higher than the initially allocated Rp 126.82 trillion.
