… 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. …

Astra's SME auto component orders may reach Rp 4.2 trillion

The Jakarta Post

Indonesia's largest automotive business group, PT Astra International, expects to have ordered automotive components worth about Rp 4.2 trillion (about US$451.6 million) from small and medium enterprises by the end of the year, up from Rp 3.6 trillion last year.

Dharma Bhakti Astra Foundation chairman Aminuddin said Tuesday that this year's procurement target could be achieved as during the first six months alone, supplies from SMEs assisted by the foundation had already reached Rp 2.1 trillion.

The SME component producers accounted for 80 percent of the small firms assisted by the foundation, he said. "The other 20 percent received assistance from the foundation to produce handicrafts and food products," he explained after the official opening of the foundation's SME Gallery.

The above picture shows Aminuddin (right) describing a machine displayed in the gallery to Bank Mandiri consumer banking director Omar S. Anwar (second right), Astra president director Michael D. Ruslim (third right), Astra director Prijono Sugiarto (third left), and the foundation's chief patron, Tossin Himawan.

Aminuddin said the SMEs accounted for about 40 percent of Astra's total component purchases. Another 45 percent was supplied by bigger domestic companies, and the other 5 percent by foreign companies.

To assist the SMEs, Astra has spent Rp 17.3 billion on training their employees in cooperation with Bank Mandiri, Bank Niaga, and surveyor firms PT Sucofindo and PT Surveyor Indonesia, Aminuddin said.

He said that from January to November, Astra trained 385 employees of its small-scale subcontractors, 81 employees of automotive SMEs not related to the company, 160 technicians, and 1,968 employees of SMEs operating in the handicrafts and food processing sectors.(ndr)
