… 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. …

Jakarta to plant 30,000 trees

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 11/29/2008 11:28 AM  

Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo planted a lobi-lobi tree in Srengseng city forest, Kembangan subdistrict, West Jakarta, at the launch of an ambitious planting project on Friday. 

"We need more trees, so we will cultivate them. We will plant 30,000 trees in Jakarta," Fauzi said. 

"It will take consistency and sustainable action to make this city greener." 

The project, powered by 300 volunteers, is sponsored by Jakarta Green Radio, the Medco Foundation, the Monfori Nusantara, the Bisnis Indonesia daily newspaper, and the Jakarta Green Monster organization. 

The volunteers planted a thousand trees in the 15-hectare-forest Srengsen forest. Most of tress planted are fruit trees seldom found in Jakarta, such as the cimpedak and kecapi. 

The launch comes as part of a massive national tree planting project, which will involve the planting and cultivation of more than 100 million trees throughout Indonesia. 

The Srengseng's forest is one of the largest green areas in the city. It is home to 26 species of birds and 68 kinds of trees. Besides this forest, Jakarta's green areas include the Suropati and Senayan parks. 

According to Fauzi, the city needs more green areas to reduce pollution and the impact of global warming. 

"Jakarta, which covers an area of 65,000 hectares, must allocate at least 14 percent of that space as green areas such as parks. Right now parks account for only 9.6 percent of the cities area," he said. 

Fauzi said that he was optimistic he could achieve this goal of expanding the city's green spaces. 

He also reminded Jakartans that they would have to change their way of thinking about how to use vacant lots in Jakarta. 

"Vacant land does not always have to be used for buildings; we must use more land for green areas. We don't need to repeat the mistakes we've made before." 

Authorities in Jakarta have made several efforts to re-green the city. The newest project involves buying five hectares of land along the tollroad to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, which will be used for a park.(naf)
