… 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 agency says second water taxi is in the works

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The city administration is eyeing the Angke River in North Jakarta as its next water taxi route, despite the serious shortcomings of its Ciliwung River pilot project.

"The Angke River is a potential route for waterway transportation," the head of the Jakarta Public Works Agency, Wisnu Subagyo Yusuf, told reporters Friday.

The agency is planning to adjust the height of three bridges along the Angke River at Pesing, Genit and Teluk Gong to allow water taxis to pass beneath.

"The bridges will have to be at least 2.75 meters above the surface of the water," he said. "But the proposal will only be carried out next year."

Separately, the head of the Jakarta Transportation Agency, Nurrachman, told The Jakarta Post that his office had not yet discussed adding new water taxi routes, preferring to concentrate on the existing route first.

The water taxi route running along the Ciliwung River is to open to the public on June 2. Initially it will only operate on Saturdays and Sundays, from 7 to 9 a.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m. The transportation agency has yet to decide on the fare price.

In trials earlier this month, the water taxis were often forced to stop by garbage clogging their motors.

During the trial runs, two boats with a capacity of 25 people each covered the 2 kilometer route, stopping at landings in Halimun, Dukuh Atas and Karet.

The city administration has allocated around Rp 17 billion (US$1.8 million) for the operational costs of the water taxis.

The Ciliwung River is the biggest of 13 rivers passing through the capital. It is severely polluted with household and industrial waste. Both the city administration and the central government have attempted numerous times to clean the river, but to no avail.

Wisnu said he would order a double net be installed in front of the Manggarai sluice gate in order to prevent garbage reaching the water taxi route.

"We hope people can learn to take care of the river and not throw garbage in it anymore," he said.

He added that the administration had allocated Rp 33 billion per annum to remove 240,000 cubic meters of trash from the city's rivers.
