… 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. …

New governor pays visit to bus terminals, train station

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

New Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo inspected bus terminals and a train station on Tuesday.

Fauzi, along with Deputy Governor Priyono and other staff members, visited the Pulo Gadung (East Jakarta), Kampung Rambutan (South Jakarta) and Kalideres (West Jakarta) terminals.

The team also visited Senen train station in Central Jakarta.

They checked safety maintenance of buses and the on-site facilities of health and law enforcement agencies.

"The safety is getting better because terminal operators now impose urine tests on drivers before they depart," said Fauzi, referring to the newly set up drug-testing posts of the National Narcotics Agency (BNN).

Besides conducting checks, Fauzi greeted waiting passengers and gave them brochures warning against bringing family with them upon return to the city.

The city administration blamed travelers who return with relatives seeking jobs for overcrowding in the capital.

While at Pulo Gadung, Fauzi also told reporters the overcrowded terminal, which is hemmed in by residential tracts, would be relocated to Pulo Gebang, also in East Jakarta, within three years.

Pulo Gadung, built on 3.5 hectares in 1975 for 300 buses, now accomodates 750 buses, according to East Jakarta Mayor Koesnan Abdul Halim. The Pulo Gebang terminal will cover an area of 10 hectares.

Deputy head of the city transportation agency Udar Pristono said last week the construction of the new terminal would begin early next year and it was expected to be operational by 2011.

He said building the terminal would cost Rp 600 billion (US$ 197 million) and the administration would propose allocating Rp 200 billion from the city budget each year between 2008 and 2011.

He added Rp 5 billion had already gone toward acquiring land since 2003.

Udar said the new bus terminal would be integrated with the city's busway system and accommodate city and inter-province buses currently using the Pulo Gadung terminal.

After the new terminal is operational, Pulo Gadung will serve busway and smaller vehicles belonging to local public transportation system.

He said the new terminal would have "direct access to Cikunir toll roads and then to Cikampek".

To minimize the impact on traffic in the area, the transportation agency will coordinate with state toll operator Jasa Marga, Udar said.
