… 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. …

All Indonesia to Pay Same Price for Fuel Next Month

The Jakarta Globe, Yessar Rosendar

Indonesian consumers will pay the same price for gasoline beginning next month no matter where they live, following the implementation of an Energy Ministry regulation requiring fuel distribution costs to be covered by the government.

The government subsidizes fuel but consumers in different parts of the country pay different prices due to varying distribution costs. For example, in parts of Papua motorists pay as much as Rp 35,000 ($3.68) a liter because of high delivery costs.

Beginning in January, everyone will pay Rp 4,500 a liter, said Hanung Budya, Pertamina’s deputy director for marketing and business, on Tuesday.

The new policy is intended to stimulate growth in isolated regions, he said.

“When the price is the same, people can spend more on fuel.”

Hanung also said Pertamina is aiming to complete its kerosene-to-liquified petroleum gas (LPG) program next year as planned, resulting in 53 million households in 27 provinces shifting from kerosene to LPG.

“We should complete the conversion program in 2010,” he said.

The program is intended to cut the amount the government pays in fuel subsidies as LPG is cheaper than kerosene. Currently, more than half of the Rp 50 trillion the government pays in fuel subsidies a year goes to kerosene.

Hanung estimated the conversion program would reduce the amount the government paid in subsidies next year by Rp 10.4 trillion.

However, Pri Agung Rakhmanto, an energy analyst at the Reforminer Institute, noted that the domestic supply of LPG was not sufficient. “We still have to import it next year,” he said.
