… 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. …

Govt not to raise fuel oil prices this year: minister

Antara News, Tuesday, January 12, 2010 23:02 WIB

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The government gave assurance on Tuesday that it will not raise domestic fuel oil prices although global oil prices are escalating to the level of US$80 a barrel, a minister said.

The current rise in global oil prices had prompted the government to change the assumed oil price in the 2010 state budget to US$80 from US$65 a barrel, Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said at the presidential office here.

"We have just discussed energy subsidy. Since there will be no domestic fuel oil price hike oil subsidy will be raised," she said after attending a limited cabinet meeting.

The minister said a change in the assumed oil price to U$80 from US$65 a barrel and the rupiah`s exchange rate to Rp9,500 from Rp10,000 per dollar will increase fuel oil subsidy to Rp96.1 trillion from Rp68 trillion.

Electricity subsidy is projected to increase to Rp53.2 trillion from Rp37.8 trillion and rice and fertilizer subsidy to Rp59.5 trillion from Rp51.3 trillion, she said.

"However, the government will receive an additional state revenue of Rp39 trillion from oil price hike," she said.

She said the government will also raise the inflation rate target to 5.5 percent from 5 percent and the assumed interest rate on Bank Indonesia promissory notes (SBI) for three-month deposit to 6.8 percent from 6.5 percent.

Given the change in macro-economic assumptions, state receipts and expenditures in the 2010 state budget will change with the budget deficit expected to soar to Rp128.7 trillion or 2.2 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP), from Rp1.8 trillion or 1.8 percent of the GDP, she said.

She said the government has decided to use 2009 state budget leftover amounting to Rp38 trillion to meet part of financing target in the 2010 state budget.
