… 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. …

Mandiri, BRI, Bank Jabar to fund expressway project

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Three local banks -- Bank Mandiri, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) and Bank Jabar -- have agreed to extend a syndicated loan of Rp 1.79 trillion (US$197.1 million) to partly finance the construction of a turnpike project in West Java.

Under an agreement signed here Wednesday, Bank Mandiri will contribute Rp 1.1 trillion, BRI Rp 448 billion and Bank Jabar Rp 150 billion.

The total loan will account for 68 percent of the project's overall cost, which is estimated at some Rp 2.63 trillion.

The remaining 32 percent will be financed by PT Citra Waspphutowa, the developer of the 22.82-kilometer tollway, which will link Jl Pangeran Antasari in South Jakarta and Bojong Gede in Bogor.

Construction of the expressway project is expected to begin next year, with commercial operation starting in October 2009.

"The loan will have a floating interest rate and will mature in 11 years, including a two-year grace period dating from the initial operation of the toll road," Mandiri president director Agus Martowardojo told reporters following the signing of the loan agreement.

He said the loan would be disbursed as soon as Citra Waspphutowa had completed the land acquisition process, which has been underway since mid 2006, and is scheduled for completion in May 2008.

Citra Waspphutowa president director Winten Peradika said that his company, together with the local administrations, had completed land acquisition in a number of areas of Depok and Bogor, but had yet to acquire any land in Jakarta.

Citra Waspphutowa is a joint venture established last year by five companies -- PT Citra Marga Nusaphala Persada (CMNP), PT Waskita Karya, PT Hutama Karya, PT Pembangunan Perumahan and PT Bosowa Trading International, with CMNP holding a 55 percent stake.

CMNP president director Daddy Hariadi said after the signing ceremony that his company would acquire a 7.5 percent stake in Bosowa Trading International, which planned to withdraw from the joint-venture company to focus on projects in South Sulawesi.

The Antasari-Depok-Bogor project is the 11th tollway project to be developed with the help of financing from Bank Mandiri.

The bank is also financing the construction of several other tollway projects, including the Kampung Melayu-Bekasi expressway in Jakarta, the Cikampek-Palimanan expressway in West Java, the Semarang-Batang expressway in Central Java and several segments of the Jakarta outer orbital route, with total financing from Mandiri amounting to Rp 13 trillion.
