… 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. …

MRT construction 'sure' to start 2010, firm says

Tifa Asrianti, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Fri, 12/05/2008 11:43 AM  

PT Mass Rapid Transit Jakarta (MRTJ) is upbeat construction on the capital's new mass rapid transportation system will commence by early 2010 following a land acquisition process scheduled for next year. 

Eddi Santosa, the company's director, said he was optimistic the land acquisition stage could be completed swiftly, citing that only 4 hectares were needed for the route from Lebak Bulus in South Jakarta to Dukuh Atas in Central Jakarta. The route is expected to be completed by 2014. 

"The 4-hectare area of land will be used to build a depot in Lebak Bulus. The rest of the railway network will be built under or above the streets," he said. 

The city administration has allocated Rp 40 billion from this year's budget to buy land for the depot and to construct the depot. 

Some 3.4 kilometers of the 14.3-kilometer-long Lebak Bulus-Dukuh Atas route will be underground, with the rest elevated. 

"The MRT will go underground from Dukuh Atas to Jl. Majapahit in Central Jakarta, because the area is classified as Ring 1 (top security priority), where there should be no obstacles above the ground. The MRT will resurface again at Kampung Bandan," he said. 

He said the city administration would perform sub-surface scans to ensure utility networks were not damaged by construction, and that the stations would be built between 8 and 12 meters below the streets -- well below utility pipelines. 

"As for the elevated structures, the transportation ministry has also made a study about the construction process, including on how to avoid congestion during the construction period," he said. 

The north-south route will link Kota in West Jakarta and Lebak Bulus. Construction on the route, which is expected to be completed by 2018, will be divided into two phases. 

"The MRT route can help bring life back to the (neglected) Old Town area," he said. 

The administration also plans to utilize pylons built for the abolished monorail project to construct an MRT route linking Pulo Gebang in East Jakarta and Kebon Jeruk in West Jakarta. 

"If the east-west route is agreed, it can serve commuters from Bekasi and Tangerang. If the axis is completed, we can make an encircling network," Eddi said. 

He said the MRT would have a maximum capacity of 300,000 passengers per day, with an average travel time of 5 minutes and 30 seconds. 

The company has planned to operate 17 trains, each to have six cars. 

Ahmad Harjadi, head of Jakarta's planning and development bureau, said the administration planned to integrate the MRT with other transportation networks, including the busway and the inner city train network. 

"Besides integrating the network, we also plan to integrate the ticket systems so that people can transfer from one mode of transportation to another without having to buy a new ticket," he said.
