… 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. …

Toyota striving to lead mini-sedan market

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - PT Toyoto Astra Motor (TAM) is striving to become the leader in Indonesia`s mini-sedan industry by controlling more than 50 percent of the market which in 2007 is estimated to total 9,000 units, the company`s chief said.

"We wish to become the leader again in this market segment," TAM President Director Johny Darmawan said at the launching of the company`s global-standard All New Vios sedan here on Wednesday.

He said demand for mini sedans with a cylinder capacity below 1500 cc would rise following improvements in the country`s economy.

Last year, mini-sedan sales in the country reached 8,800 units and in 2007 it was expected to increase to 9,000 units.

He said he hoped with the launching of the global standard Vios sedan the company could secure 30 to 40 percent of the market in the country.

"As we start selling the sedan in April we hope sales until the end of this year will reach 4,800 to 5,000 units," he said.

He said he was optimistic the target would be met considering that the market of mini sedans would continue to grow in line with the improving economy.

He said the company would target young executives aged between 30 and 40 years.

"We believe the Vios this time will be able to beat its rivals as it has been able to lead the market in its class in other countries," he said.

In 2006 sales of Vios sedans in a number of Asean countries such as Thailand reached 36,000 units to secure around 38.6 percent of the market in its class. In Malaysia sales reached 21,000 units to secure 37.7 percent of the market.

In the Philippines and Vietnam it secured respectively 45.6 and 76.4 percent of the market.

In Indonesia it competed with Honda City which last year controlled 58.6 percent of the market. Vios sales in Indonesia last year accounted for 29.1 percent of the market.
