… 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. …

Intercity bus drivers to take urine test for safety

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

State insurance company Jasa Raharja conducted urine tests on intercity bus drivers Monday at East Jakarta's Pulo Gadung bus terminal in an effort to promote the safe passage of holidaymakers to their hometowns, a company officer said.

The tests were to screen out drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Pulo Gadung officer Wiwiek Susanti told, "Drivers using drugs will not be allowed to leave the terminal".

The number of passengers traveling from the city has been increasing since last week as the holiday season approaches.

Jakarta residents are flocking to bus and train stations, eager to reach their hometowns to spend Idul Fitri with their relatives, the company said.

According to the city transportation agency, it is estimated that average daily bus passengers will begin to rise above 10,000 this week; on normal days the figure is under 1,000.

Pulo Gadung will have 770 extra busses on hand to meet the demand, while the total number of extra busses to be allocated citywide will be around 5000, the agency said.

The spike in vehicular traffic may increase the likelihood of accidents and delays.

A recent Transportation Ministry estimate showed 2.43 million motorcyclists would travel to destinations in Sumatra and Java and another 1.5 million would go there by private car.

Wiwiek said the insurance company began screening bus drivers to help prevent accidents, because it had no way to encourage safety among drivers of private vehicles.

The Jasa Raharja team, which is supported by police officers and the Jakarta Transportation Agency, used a random selection scheme for the drug and alcohol tests. None of the ten drivers who were tested Monday returned positive results.

Bus driver Hariyanto, who was selected for testing, said he did not mind and said that such tests would promote safe driving.

"They should conduct the test regularly, at peak season and at other times, to bring these issues to the attention of irresponsible drivers," he said.

However the transportation agency said it was reluctant, as such safety efforts are the responsibility of health agencies or the national police.
