… 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. …

City clamps down on illegally parking

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 05/03/2008 11:14 AM 

The Jakarta administration on Friday unveiled a new weapon in the war on illegal parking: wheel clamps. 

Officers from the city transportation agency slapped wheel clamps on at least 13 cars, part of a new drive to curb illegal parking. 

The initiative is a joint effort with the Jakarta Police, which on Friday ticketed 52 illegally parked motorcycles and cars by 2 p.m.

Transportation agency official Riza Hashim said in West Jakarta, agency officers locked the wheels of two cars on Jl. Gadjah Mada at 8:30 a.m. and one on Jl. Hayam Wuruk, which was illegally parked in front of a Super Indo mart, at around 1:30 p.m. 

"The agency released the two cars on Jl. Gadjah Mada later in the afternoon after their owners claimed them," he said, adding the owners were issued tickets. 

Friday's measures represent a new tactic in the battle against illegal parkers, after the administration in January began towing illegally parked cars. 

With 22 tow trucks owned by the agency and 10 from the police, the agency was towing about 10 to 15 cars a day. 

The agency then added another 69 tow trucks from private companies to deal with the flood of illegally parked vehicles. 

The agency now employs a total of 22 wheel clamps around the city as a complement to the tow trucks. 

Riza said that in South Jakarta, the agency locked the wheels of five cars on Jl. Mampang Prapatan, Jl. Warung Buncit, Jl. Pasar Minggu and the area around the Bidakara office building on Jl. Gatot Subroto. 

Police ticketed 22 vehicles in the area on Friday. 

The agency put wheel clamps on two cars illegally parked in front of the Pasar Baru market, while police ticketed 10 vehicles in the area of Jl. Salemba and Jl. Samanhudi, all in Central Jakarta. 

In East Jakarta, Riza said the agency slapped a wheel clamp on a vehicle parked in front of private elementary school SD Tarakanita on Jl. Pemuda. 

The agency locked the wheels of two cars in North Jakarta on Jl. Yos Sudarso and Jl. R.E. Martadinata. 

Deputy Governor Prijanto said he hoped the wheel clamps would help prevent motorists from parking illegally. 

"We will maintain this policy until Jakartans are aware that they are not allowed to park their vehicles illegally," Prijanto said Friday at City Hall.
