… 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. …

Bajaj expanding business

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Motorcycle maker PT Bajaj Auto Indonesia is trying to increase its sales of sports motorcycles in Indonesia by launching new products this year, with an intention of establishing a new production plant next year.

Sales and marketing director Dharmesh K. Banerjee told The Jakarta Post at the launching of a new product, Pulsar 200 cc DTS-i, on Monday that the company would launch two more new products in the second quarter.

To support the marketing of the new products, he said, the company, whose headquarters is located in India, would spend US$6 million.

Bajaj also planned to build its first manufacturing plant in Indonesia.

"Maybe in 2009," said Barnejee, adding that the company was currently operating an assembly plant in Cikarang, Bekasi, West Java.

Banerjee further said that this year the company would build 60 new showrooms nationwide, adding its current 40 showrooms in, among others, Greater Jakarta, Surabaya of East Java, Bandung of West Java, Semarang of Central Java, Yogyakarta, Medan of North Sumatra, Jambi, Pekanbaru of Riau, Palembang of South Sumatra, Padang of West Sumatra and Lampung.

Since the launch of its first product in Indonesia in November, 2006, Bajaj had sold 10,000 motorcycles, at around Rp 15.5 million to Rp 16.5 million each, as of the end of 2007.

With the launch of the three new products, Banerjee said, Bajaj expected to more than double its sales this year.

President director K.S. Grihapathy said that Bajaj, therefore, would develop brand awareness among potential consumers.

"In few years to come, we'll be focusing on brand building, service network and distribution to tap Indonesia's sport motorcycle market," he said.

According to the Indonesian Motorcycle Industry Association (AISI), last year's national sales of sports motorcycles rose by 18.3 percent to 379,039 units from 320,359 in the previous year.

Grihapathy estimated that based on the size of the national market, the country could absorb the monthly sales of some 5,000 motorcycles with a price tag of about Rp 20 million.

"Our new product, Pulsar 200, is priced at Rp 20 million. Hopefully, we will get a 10 percent share of that market of 5,000 units," he added.(nkn)
