… 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. …

Taxi operators hit hard by sudden spate of stalled cars

HasyimWidhiarto, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 07/24/2010 9:23 AM

Taxioperators in the city are expressing frustration following increasing incidentsof taxis stalling in the past three weeks, allegedly due to poor qualitygasoline and badly manufactured fuel pumps.

“Atleast 30 taxis stall during operation every day and must return to our pool fora check up,” Priyatmedi, the operational director of Jakarta-based Taxiku taxiservice, told The Jakarta Post on Friday.

“Ourin-house mechanics found that the taxis stalled mainly due to problems with thefuel pumps.”

Althoughthe company’s new fleet of Chevrolets are still covered by guarantees for anyspare parts purchased from the dealer, Priyatmedi complained that “once a taxistalls, it affects the collection of our operating income”.

BlueBird Group public relations head Teguh Wijayanto said his company had foundfuel pump damage in 1,200 of their cars.

“Some ofour drivers could not start their cars due to the problem while others hadtheir cars suddenly grind to a halt.”

He saidthe company’s mechanics pinned the problem on a similar cause. “They found aclot in the cars’ fuel pumps,” he said.

Earlierthis week, several taxi operators reported that a large number of their carssuffered from technical problems due to flawed to fuel pumps.

Normally,the pumps have to be replaced after 100,000 kilometers, or around four years ofuse.

“Butnow, we find that some of our newer cars that have less than 30,000 kilometerson the clock also have faulty fuel pumps,” Teguh said.

BlueBird currently operates a fleet of more than 11,000 Toyota Limo cars, producedbetween 2007 and 2009, throughout Greater Jakarta, while Taxiku operating lessthan 1,000 cars in the same area.

Thesudden spate of fuel pump issues has triggered public speculation.

Onewidespread view is that there was an intentional attempt to degrade the qualityof premium gasoline in Jakarta, while others blame production errors during thefuel pump manufacturing process.

State-ownedoil and gas firm PT Pertamina has strongly denied any rumors of tampered fuelsupplies.
Pertaminais the largest distributor of subsidized premium gasoline in the country.

“Ourlaboratory tests on premium gasoline samples collected from several Pertaminagas stations in Jakarta on July 20 found no substandard fuel.” Pertaminacorporate secretary Toharso said Thursday.

Whenasked for comment, PT Toyota Astra Motor president director Johnny Darmawansaid
Fridaythat he did not want to speculate about the fuel pump problem, saying that allcar distributors, Pertaminaand public representatives needed to meet to discuss the matter.

“Reportsshow that it is not only our [Toyota] cars that have this problem,” Johnnysaid.
