… 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 Step Up Raids On Train-Roof Riders

Operations targeting train passengers who do not buy tickets will be intensified prior to the December holidays, a railway company spokesman said on Thursday.

Sugeng Priyono, a spokesman for state railway operator PT Kereta Api in the Jakarta region, said the company had been raiding more trains for ticketless passengers, including those who ride on the rooftops, together with the Ministry of Transportation and Jakarta Police.

“These ‘wild’ passengers are always a serious problem for us,” he said.

Poorer passengers on lines connecting stations in Jakarta to neighboring areas such as Bogor, Serpong, Depok and Bekasi frequently seek ways of using the train without paying. Passengers often board the engine carriage and pay a lower price to the train conductor— or ride on the roof of the train, risking their lives.

Sugeng said the ministry would determine the schedule of the raids.

Tundjung Inderawan, director general of railways, said inspections and raids were among his department’s priorities.

“If we find passengers who violate the ticketing regulation, they will have to be fined,” he said.

Tundjung said that one of his plans for 2010 was to revamp the commuter line with the Rp 3.7 trillion ($390 million) allocated by the central government.

“Some passengers choose to ride on the rooftop because the cars are too full, and that is often the case when there’s a delay and passengers accumulate in a station,” he said.

He added that the funds would also be used to renovate stations and improve human resources.

In 2010, the train company is expected to cooperate with TransJakarta to provide an electronic ticket that can be used for both the train and the busway.

“Especially when the e-ticketing is applied, it will help curb the number of freeloading passengers,” Tundjung said.

In 2008, PT KA tried a new tack, with rooftop riders being sprayed by security officers with orange-colored dye to humiliate them. However, this lasted only a short time and was not successful in keeping riders off rooftops.
