… 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. …

Fire catches Transjakarta bus, again

A Transjakarta bus traveling along Corridor 1 from Kota, Central Jakarta, to Blok M, South Jakarta, caught on fire after the bus engine short circuited. 

No casualties were reported. It is the second time a Transjakarta bus has caught ablaze this year. 

Fire engulfed the bus owned by PT Jakarta Express Trans (JET) at about 10 a.m., right before it reached the Blok M terminal, said Rene Nunumente from Transjakarta. 

"Fortunately, Emi, the bus driver, dropped of all passengers at Gelora Bung Karno bus shelter (two shelters before Blok M)," Rene said. 

The city fire agency extinguished the fire about one hour later, Rene said. 

"We are now investigating the incident. We will establish a team, comprising officials from Transjakarta, the National Police and city transportation agency," he said. 

"This is a lesson for all Transjakarta bus operators to learn: They must routinely monitor and check their buses. 

"If the bus is improper or not in good condition, the operator must not operate it anymore," he said, adding that the investigation might take about three days. 

Transjakarta head Daryanti Asrining Rini said the bus operator might face sanctions because of the incident. 

This is the third incident involving Transjakarta buses since the mass transportation system started operations in 2004. 

In February, a fire destroyed a compressed natural gas-powered Transjakarta bus, which was owned by PT Trans Batavia. 

The bus was traveling along Corridor 2 of the busway system from Harmoni, Central Jakarta, to Pulo Gadung, East Jakarta, with dozens of passengers on board when the bus caught on fire. No casualties were reported. 

Transjakarta officials said the blaze was also caused by a short circuit. 

A similar incident occurred last May, involving a CNG-fueled Transjakarta bus being repaired at a bus pool in Pulo Gadung. That fire left four people with serious injuries. 

Nurmansjah Lubis, the secretary of City Council Commission B for economic affairs, blamed the poor management of Transjakarta for the incidents. 

"Transjakarta should have a control system to assure that the vehicles run well. With a good operating system, fires can be avoided," he said. 

Governor Fauzi Bowo is also urging Transjakarta to carry out periodic and careful safety checks on all Transjakarta buses. 

"All operators should check the buses right before they leave the bus pools," he said.
