… 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. …

Rp900 Billion for Sidoarjo Infrastructure Repairs

Thursday, 12 July, 2007 | 16:27 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: The government has officially proposed the budget for repairing infrastructure ruined by the Lapindo hot mudflows to be Rp900 billion.

The statement was included in the 2007 Revised State Budget Draft and the posts will be the Public Works Department and Transportation Department’s expenditure.

Anggito Abimanyu, Head of Fiscal Policy at Finance Department, explained that such amount of budget was resulted from the estimation of road and railway infrastructure repairs needed.

“Our capability this year is now only Rp900 billion,” he said after a working meeting with the Budget Committee on 2007 Revised State Budget Draft at the Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Tuesday night (11/7).

He acknowledged that actually the need of infrastructure rehabilitation was much higher than Rp900 billion.

“But this is to be discussed later,” said Anggito.

In the 2007 Revised State Budget Draft, he said, for handling the damage due to Lapindo mudflow, the proposal was combined with the Public Works Department’s and Transportation Department’s infrastructure repair program.

The amount of the two departments’ needs totals Rp5 trillion.

The consideration for granting the funds, said Anggito, refers to the aspect of respective regional economic interests.

This is because infrastructure is a vital matter as regards regional economic support.

“For Lapindo (case), this is special for infrastructure. For the others, there’s none,” he said.

Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the funds for infrastructure rehabilitation due to the Lapindo mudflows is what caused the 2007 budget’s deficit to soar from Rp40.5 trillion, or from 1.1 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to Rp62 trillion or 1.6 percent of GDP.

“Infrastructure repairs in Sidoarjo are very urgent for moving the economy so the allocation must be included in the 2007 Revised State Budget Draft,” she said.

Infrastructure repairs in Sidoarjo include the Porong-Gempol toll road, non-toll artery roads and railways.
