… 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. …

Petrol stations to provide natural gas

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

State oil and gas company Pertamina, along with foreign competitors Petronas and Shell Indonesia, will soon supply compressed natural gas (CNG) to the public.

Jakarta Mineral and Mining Agency spokeswoman Peni Susanti said Friday it was part of their obligation to provide and operate CNG pumps at their existing gas stations in the future, although she did not set a deadline.

"Pertamina, Petronas and Shell signed an agreement with the city administration in September in which they promised to provide natural gas at their gas stations," she said at City Hall.

"The agreement is backed up by an existing city bylaw that requires them to install natural gas pumps and supply natural gas at every gas station they have," she added.

Speaking after a meeting with a number of city officials and Governor Fauzi Bowo, Peni said Pertamina would start supplying natural gas to the public in December in conjunction with the state firm's birthday.

Meanwhile, Petronas, Malaysian state oil and gas firm Petroliam Nasional Berhad, and Shell Indonesia, the local arm of Royal Dutch Shell Plc., will commence CNG provision next year, Peni said.

She said as a pilot project for the agreement, Pertamina's CNG would be available at its station on Jl. Pramuka, East Jakarta, Petronas's station on Jl. Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, and Shell Indonesia's station on Jl. Gatot Subroto in South Jakarta.

Currently, out of existing 14 gas stations equipped with CNG pumps, only seven are operating, Peni said.

The city has a total of 264 gas stations.

Petronas, which is planning to build a total of 22 gas stations in Greater Jakarta, currently has two stations, while Shell has 10, also in Greater Jakarta.

Peni said both Petronas and Shell Indonesia were yet to specify the exact date of their initial CNG provision.

Most customers of CNG are Transjakarta buses and some bajaj. Prompted by worsening pollution, the city has encouraged more vehicles to use CNG, which is considered to be cleaner.
