… 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. …

MRT team prepares transport roadmap

Alvin Darlanika Soedarjo, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The secretary of the Directorate General for Railway Transport, Nugroho Indrio, said that the special assignment for project implementation was ready to help the government oversee the development of Jakarta's mass rapid transit system.

The project implementation team, which consists of both local and Japanese experts, was established by the Japan Bank for International Cooperation, the main financier of the project.

"The MRT subcommittee and the special assistant for project implementation (SAPI) team are preparing an agenda to consolidate the project," Nugroho told reporters after a sub-committee meeting.

The MRT subcommittee consists of officials from the Transportation Ministry, the Finance Ministry, the National Development Planning Board and the Jakarta administration.

Both the MRT subcommittee and the SAPI team will monitor several important tasks for accelerating construction of the MRT.

The Transportation Ministry's role in the project, which is planned to cost around Rp 8.2 trillion, is to give special advice on spatial planning, the development schedule and the number of passengers to be carried by the system.

"Besides that, the government will only monitor whether the (relevant government) regulation has been followed by the operator," Nugroho said.

The Directorate General for Railway Transport will supervise amendments to the regulation while the Finance Ministry will administer the fund channeling scheme.

The city's assistant for the economy will oversee involvement procedures while the head of the organizational management bureau will oversee organizational design.

The head of Jakarta's economic bureau will guide financial planning, business strategy and process planning while the head of the Jakarta Environmental Management Agency will look over environmental and social considerations.

The city administration's chief spokesman will supervise publicity management and the head of the Organizational Management Bureau will take care of human resources planning.

"We will have to form the operating company, the MRT Operating Company (MRTC), by at least April next year," Nugroho added. Construction is slated to begin by June 2010 and finish by August 2014.

Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan told The Jakarta Post that Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal was currently visiting Japan to get more "possible technical and funding assistance".

The special railway transport will have 14.5 kilometers of tracks from Lebak Bulus in South Jakarta to Kota in West Jakarta, 4.5 kilometers of which will be underground. Eight stations will be above ground and four will be underground.
