… 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. …

Govt may provide cash for deep tunnel project

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The central government has agreed to help finance the multi purpose deep tunnel project (MPDT), pending a feasibility study, a state official said.

"The project is a good idea because it will overcome many problems in the city such as traffic congestion, water shortages, and poor sanitation," Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto told a press conference here Thursday after opening a seminar on the project.

He said the central government would not mind helping finance the project but it would first look at the result of a feasibility planned by the city administration this year. He suggested the feasibility study be paid for by the city administration.

"We will see whether the project is financially and technically feasible," he said.

The head of the Jakarta Water Regulatory Body, Achmad Lanti, said the body would need around US$2 million to conduct a feasibility study and to make the grand design for the project.

"It will take two years to finish the feasibility study and the design,"

"And if the project is not feasible, we will not make it happen," he said.

The 22-kilometer tunnel will be constructed 15 meters below the West Flood Canal project with entrances in Balekambang, East Jakarta, and Manggarai, South Jakarta, and exits in Tanah Abang and Roxy in Central Jakarta and at the airport in Cengkareng, Tangerang.

There will be two levels of roadway and waste water reservoirs in the tunnel with diameters of 12 meters. Above the roadways, the tunnel will be used as a utility duct.

It is estimated that the tunnel will generate around Rp 2.2 trillion ($241 million) each year from the operation of the roadway as well as waste water treatment.

Meanwhile, Governor Sutiyoso said that the multi purpose deep tunnel would be the answer to all the crucial problems faced by the capital.

"I hope this concept will attract domestic investors as well as foreign investors because this is a big project which cannot be financed by the city administration or the central government alone," he said.

The project was first proposed by the Jakarta Water Regulatory Body in February after severe flooding inundated much of the capital. In its initial proposal, it was estimated that the project would need Rp 4.37 trillion. However, more recent projections put the cost at four times that amount.
