… 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. …

Flying the friendly skies without ‘fiskal’

Mariani Dewi, The Jakarta Post, Tangerang | Fri, 01/02/2009 8:25 AM  

Airline passengers exempt from paying the fiskal, or exit tax at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport said they were happy with the new policy on the first day of its implementation on Thursday, adding the exemption procedure was easy. 

Ratu, a civil servant and mother of three, was booked on a flight to Bangkok with her husband and children on Thursday. The tax number (NPWP) she had held for many years meant she was exempt from paying the exit tax. 

“I’m impressed with the service, it was so fast. It only took five minutes for the whole family to get exemption,” she said. 

She added airport officials only asked to see her and her husband’s NPWPs. 

A South Korean expatriate, Kim Sung Kyung, about to board a flight home to Seoul, said the new policy had helped him greatly because he traveled several times a year for medical treatment. 

“I’m very happy about this new policy, because I used to pay a million (rupiah) every time I flew,” he said. 

However, Kim also said many of his Korean friends were not aware of the policy. 

Park Ju Tae, president director of a private company, was one of those left in the dark. On Thursday, he paid Rp 2.5 million to board his flight to South Korea. 

“I was surprised by the raise. It gave me a headache. Many of my Korean colleagues didn’t know about this policy. Fortunately, I brought enough money. Had I not brought enough, I would have had to cancel the trip,” he said. 

Viki Ariawan, head of the tax office’s monitoring and service division at the airport, said the government had publicized the new NPWP policy since 2007 through all kinds of media. However, he said he was aware the exit tax policy was published less than two weeks ago. 

Agus Purnomo Adi, head of tax office’s exit tax division at the airport, said that on the first day of the implementation, hundreds of passengers still paid the tax. 

“I’ll get the full report by midnight, but I guess the number of those who paid will be less than before because many got exemption,” he said.
