… 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. …

Abandoned monorail lines to be used for city MRT

Tifa Asrianti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 11/26/2008 10:53 AM  

The city administration will use the abandoned monorail routes for its mass rapid transit (MRT) network. 

The east-west route is the monorail's blue line, which will link Kampung Melayu in East Jakarta to Roxy in West Jakarta. 

The administration is proposing the new route to the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the MRT project advisor, in December. 

Governor Fauzi Bowo on Tuesday said a team of JICA experts would arrive in December to review the feasibility study for the North-South route, which spanned from Kota in West Jakarta to Lebak Bulus in South Jakarta. 

"The East route will link Kampung Melayu, Kali Malang and the planned bus terminal in Pulo Gebang, while the West route will probably link Kebon Jeruk and Tomang. The routes will meet at around Wisma Dharmala, Karet," Fauzi said. 

The stalled monorail project was planned with two routes, the green line and the blue line. PT Jakarta Monorail built some of the infrastructure required for the green line through South Jakarta's Kuningan business district and along Jl. Sudirman to Tanah Abang in Central Jakarta. 

The blue line was not built. 

"We will make some changes to the blue line," Fauzi said. "The MRT will go underground under Jl. Prof. Dr. Satrio in Casablanca, South Jakarta, and come up aboveground at Jl. Lapangan Ros, Tebet," Fauzi said. 

Bambang Susantono from the Indonesian Transportation Society said the city administration should review all urban transportation before replacing one public transportation mode with another. 

"We are also reviewing the Study on Integrated Transportation Master Plan (Sitramp) from now until next year to see if one of the busway corridors is suitable for a monorail, light train or subway. We must study commuter patterns," he said. 

The MRT project, managed by both the central government and the Jakarta administration, is expected to be completed in 2014. 

Fauzi said the second phase loan agreement, which amounts to US$450 million, for the MRT project would take place in March 2009. The first phase of the loan was only US$17 million. 

PT Mass Rapid Transit Jakarta (MRTJ) president director Eddi Santosa said his company had only received Rp 63 billion from the first phase loan agreement, while the remaining Rp 100 billion went to the city transportation department for design and engineering. 

MRTJ has received Rp 49.5 billion from the city administration and Rp 500 million from traditional market operator PD Pasar Jaya. 

The North-South MRT project will be implemented in two phases. The first phase consists of feasibility studies, the formation of MRTJ and the construction of a 14.3-kilometer line from Lebak Bulus to Dukuh Atas, Central Jakarta. 

The second phase of development is construction of the line from Dukuh Atas to Kota.
