… 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. …

Zero Motorcycles’ Electric Bikes to Hit Indonesia’s Roads Next Year

Jakarta Globe, Carla Isati Octama, Dec 08, 2014

A screen grab from Zero Motorcycles' website.

Jakarta. Garansindo Inter Global, the local distributor of Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler cars, will start selling Zero Motorcycles’ electric bikes made in the United States by June next year, marking its first step into Indonesia’s zero-emissions vehicle market.

The company also plans to assemble and sell the Vmoto, a cheap electric bike from Australia, in the second half of next year, Garansindo’s chief executive, Muhammad Al Abdullah, said on Monday.

“We are eyeing to market the electric motorcycle in 2015, because we see Indonesia is a growing market for this vehicle,” Abdullah said.

Santa Cruz-based Zero Motorcycles has been producing electric motornbikes, whose performance is on par with their internal combustion peers, since 2006. Zero SR, the company’s latest model, can travel up to 298 kilometers in the city and accelerate from standstill to 100 kilometers per hour in just 3.3 seconds.

Abdullah said the Zero bikes would sell for between Rp 170 million and Rp 200 million ($13,770 to $16,200) in Indonesia, a tag that limits the market to enthusiasts.

For the mass market, Garansindo will assemble and sell Vmoto in the second semester. Each will fetch around Rp 12 million, Abdullah said. That price would be competitive with the scooters that many Indonesians use daily.

“We plan in the future to produce [Vmoto] in Indonesia, but we will do it in stages, starting with [assembling] the completely knocked-down kits,” Abdullah said.

Panggah Susanto, the director general for high-tech manufacturing at the Industry Ministry, said government backed Garansindo’s plan to establish a domestic plant, but did not elaborate on the form such support might take.

Motorcycles are still the most popular mode of transport in Indonesia, with an estimated eight million new bikes expected to leave showroom floors this year.
