… 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. …

Rain, Floods Trigger Landslides Along Jakarta’s Crowded Rivers

Jakarta residents should not only watch out for floods but also for landslides, which have become a critical issue in the city, according to a top official.

Deputy Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama said that areas around riverbanks were particularly vulnerable.

Four housing units in Pesanggrahan, South Jakarta, collapsed on Wednesday as a result of a landslide. Eight households — or a total of 31 people — were affected by the disaster and needed to be evacuated.

The houses that collapsed were located close to a cliff next to the site of a river-widening project, which aims to improve the flow rate of the Pesanggrahan by dredging it and widening its banks.

The project contractor has placed sandbags along the Pesanggrahan’s banks to prevent further landslides.

Similar projects are being carried out along other stretches of the Pesanggrahan as well as the Angke and Sunter rivers, which pass through areas prone to rising water levels during the rainy season, and are part of the Jakarta administration’s plans to control flooding.

“This [landslide] is why we have to be firm about evicting residents who live on riverbanks or around dams. It’s too dangerous to build houses there,” Basuki said on Thursday.

He added that people continued to violate zoning regulations by building homes near rivers and dams without permits.

According to Basuki, low-income residents have been living around Jakarta’s rivers and dams for some 40 years.

The city administration is planning to build walls around these bodies of water to prevent landslides and relocate the residents to subsidized apartments.

Landslides also occurred in Condet, East Jakarta, on Wednesday when houses built around 10 meters from the Ciliwung River collapsed and fell onto three houses located closer to the water’s edge.

Another landslide occurred early in the morning of Jan. 19 in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta, after heavy rainfall, sending two residents into the Ciliwung River when their house collapsed.

The were found alive by a search and rescue team.

More than 55,000 people have settled along the Ciliwung’s riverbanks, mostly in squatter settlements.
