… 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. …

FIA refuses to certify track, A1 race delayed

Niken Prathivi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sun, 01/18/2009

In what can only be described as an embarrassing slap in the face to Indonesian racing fans, organizers of the A1 race in Jakarta have been forced to postpone the scheduled Feb. 6-8 event after failing to attain a circuit license from the FIA. 

FIA circuit inspector Roland Bruyn Serende, who visited the venue on Jan. 8 and again on Friday, refused to issue the license as he deemed the construction of the Karawaci track in Tangerang incomplete.

The setback will postpone the race by at least nine months. 

“Since the first visit two weeks ago, the FIA inspector had concluded that the circuit would not be ready on time,” said George Benton, head of the local organizing committee. 

“We asked him to give us another week to finish it [the track], but we failed to meet FIA standards,” Benton said Sunday. 

FIA reportedly required the developers of the US$15 million Karawaci Circuit to have completed construction two weeks prior to the race day. 

Benton blamed the heavy downpour of rain which struck Jakarta recently as the reason for the construction delays which led to the FIA refusing to issue the Grade 2 circuit license. 

“We’re very disappointed and we apologize for the postponement, but we have to think positively for the November race,” Benton said, adding that the race date was now Nov. 6-8. 

According to Irawan Sucahyono from the Indonesian Motorsports Association (IMI), FIA standards require both the track and circuit facilities to be ready at least 60 days prior to race day. 

Despite the embarrassing failure to meet the deadline, the head of corporate communication for Lippo Karawaci Danang Kemayan Jati insisted they would still host a race on Feb. 8. 

“We are going to launch the track as planned,” he said, claiming the delay did not change the terms of the five-year contract to host the series. 

IMI will hold the 2009 GT Car National Championships as part of the trial races for the new Karawaci Circuit street track on Feb. 7-8 which will be open to the public.
