… 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 tops world`s largest carmaker GM in first-quarter sales

Tokyo/Washington (ANTARA News) - Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corp has for the first time topped US giant General Motors (GM) Corp as the world`s largest automaker, on Tuesday reporting higher sales figures for the first three months of 2007.

Toyota said first-quarter sales rose to a record 2.35 million vehicles, a rise of 9.2 per cent on the year-earlier period. Detroit-based GM last week said sales climbed 3.3 per cent to 2.26 million units, also a record.

Most analysts expect Toyota to be the world`s top automaker by the end of 2007, ending GM`s 76-year dominance of the global market. The Toyota City-based company has projected sales of 9.34 million vehicles for the year, a 6-per-cent increase on 2006, while GM is cutting back production in an effort to return to profitability.

Asian automakers have continued to make inroads into the global market as the so-called Big Three in the US - GM, Ford Motor Co and Chrysler Group - have announced plant closures and worker lay-offs to stem losses.

Domestic sales for major Japanese carmakers fell in the fiscal year 2006, but Toyota and Honda Motor Co saw their exports and global output rise, the companies announced Tuesday. Nissan Motor Co struggled, however, with declining exports and production.

Including subsidiaries Daihatsu Motor Co and Hino Motors Ltd, Toyota`s sales in its home market fell to 2.33 million units in fiscal 2006, which ended March 31, a drop of 2.7 per cent from the previous year, but its exports surged 22.8 per cent to 2.8 million units.

Japan`s top automaker also increased its global production by 7.3 per cent to 9.01 million units. However, for March, Toyota`s global output dropped 0.2 per cent from the same month a year ago to 861,951 units.

Honda`s domestic sales for fiscal 2006 dipped 2.6 per cent to 691,529 units, but exports soared 19.7 per cent to 645,203 units. Honda`s global output rose 7.5 per cent to a record 3.7 million units.

In March alone, Honda`s global output expanded 5.7 per cent to 356,031 units from the same month a year before, but its domestic sales fell 9.4 per cent to 89,668 units, Honda said.
