… 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. …

BlackBerry boom in Indonesia

By Atika Shubert, CNN, December 29, 2009 -- Updated 0443 GMT (1243 HKT)

STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • BlackBerry smart phones are increasingly popular with customers in Indonesia
  • Patchy and expensive home Internet access make the phones good alternatives for Internet access
  • Rise in digital social networking in Indonesia makes BlackBerry's keyboard good selling point


Jakarta, Indonesia (CNN) -- The BlackBerry is king... in Indonesia, anyway.

It's hard to go anywhere in Jakarta, the nation's busy capital, without seeing someone using one of these ubiquitous smart phones.

In the city's shopping malls, the BlackBerry logo is advertised everywhere and sellers offer everything from the latest, the Blackberry Onyx, to much cheaper, older models.

In its battle with Apple's iPhone, BlackBerry is the clear winner here. Sellers at one Jakarta mall told CNN they routinely sell about 5 or 6 Blackberries a day. In comparison they sell only one iPhone a day, at the most.

"BlackBerry phones are much more trendy and fashionable than the iPhone," one seller told CNN. "Hardly anyone asks for an iPhone."

So just why is the BlackBerry so popular in Indonesia?

One reason is price. Blackberry phones cost about $500 when sold new, compared to an iPhone that costs around $900. But if bought on Indonesia's "gray market" -- in order words, smuggled in tax free -- then a BlackBerry can be purchased for around $300.

That caters not just to Indonesia's high-end businessmen but also to the country's growing and fashion-conscious middle class.

Another reason is accessibility. Indonesia's Internet infrastructure is expensive and not always reliable. Getting a home broadband connection can cost as much as $100 a month. For many Indonesians, it's easier, and cheaper, to get a web-enabled phone.

Used less for surfing the net than digital social networking, BlackBerry phones' keyboards have also been a real selling point. The iPhone's touch screen has less appeal in this respect. (Read more on the rise of social media in Southeast Asia)

"I've heard the touch screen isn't so great," one college student buying her first BlackBerry told CNN. "All my friends use the BlackBerry to email. That's why I'm getting one."

BlackBerry manufacturer, Research in Motion, wouldn't release country-specific figures but said that Indonesia is an important part of its Asia strategy. Indonesia holds a lot of potential.

The ROA Group, a mobile phone research group, estimates that by next year half of Indonesia's 250 million people will have a mobile phone.

But BlackBerry may not be on top for long. Local provider XL is now offering a service that gives mobile phone users limited web-access to Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo mail.

For many users, that's all they need and the cost of the service is only about a dollar a day.
