… 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 officials say they love riding bikes for work

Fri, 01/16/2009 5:37 PM, The Jakarta Post 

On Tuesday, South Jakarta Mayor Syahrul Effendi enacted an environmentally and traffic friendly policy of requiring administrative officials across the municipality to use bicycles for transportation. Several subdistrict officials that have implemented the policy have said they like it. 

"Using a bicycle makes it easy to avoid pot holes and puddles when patrolling the neighborhood," Pulo subdistrict head Iwan K.S. told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday. 

Iwan said he used to use a car or a motorcycle to patrol his area. 

"Cars are totally ineffective during rush hours, while with a motorcycle I tended to ride a bit too fast to observe the situation. The bicycle allows me to move swiftly and at the right pace to patrol; plus I can get to the mayors office faster by using a bicycle because I can ride it on the sidewalk," he said. 

Iwan said that only three of the subdistrict's nine staffers used bicycles - himself, his deputy and the secretary. 

"It is only the three of us who constantly need to patrol and go to meetings with other officials from other subdistricts," he said. 

In the nearby Melawai subdistrict, six of the nine staffers already rode bicycles for operational purposes, Samsi, the Melawai subdistrict head, said. 

"Not only does it help us save money on fuel, the policy also makes us healthier in the long run," he said. 

Both Iwan and Samsi said the bicycles were not provided by the municipality but were their own. 

"I hope that in the future the municipality will provide us with standard bicycles," Samsi said. (hdt)
