… 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. …

Community demands bike lanes

Desy Nurhayati, The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Fri, 02/06/2009 10:51 AM  

The Bike to Work (B2W) community urged the city administration to finally implement its delayed plan to create bicycle lanes along main thoroughfares this year. 

“We will continue to push the administration to build the lanes,” said B2W chairman Toto Soegito.

“We expect them to be finished by the end of the year. The pilot project should have been completed last December.

“We have talked to the relevant agencies and they said bureaucracy had hampered the plan.”

The city administration has planned to build a 3-kilometer lane connecting Suropati Park and the National Monument (Monas), both in Central Jakarta, as a pilot project.

It will also build another lane connecting Blok M, Jl. Sudirman and the Sudirman Central Business District area. 

Nirwono Joga, consultant to the city parks agency on the matter, said the plan was impeded by internal politics within the administration.

“The project has been delayed because the deputy governor has not yet to approved the project, although the governor has agreed,” he told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

“We will begin building the lane and complete it within two months, as soon as we have the approval.”

He said the lane would not require major construction, as the lane would occupy part of the existing pedestrian lane. 

Furthermore, B2W recommends the construction of lanes along riverbanks, Toto said. “Building lanes along riverbanks is feasible and would not disturb traffic.”

As part of the bike campaign, B2W, along with the Indonesian School Bike Community (SSI) and several other organizations, donated 100 bicycles to several elementary and junior high schools across the city Thursday.

The recipient schools will now select students to lend the bicycles to, prioritizing the underprivileged and those who live far from school.

The aim of the donation, carried out under the Bicycle for School program, is to encourage students to ride bicycles as a healthy and environmentally friendly transportation alternative, said the head of the program, Danang Caksono.

“We hope the donation will help underprivileged families who cannot afford transportation costs for their children to go to school,” Danang said Petamburan state elementary school in Central Jakarta.

The program will donate 10,000  bicycles across the country.
