… 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. …

Vendors blamed for traffic jams

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

In response to worsening traffic congestion along Jl. Mangga Besar I, the West Jakarta administration plans to evict dozens of scrap iron vendors who operate in the area.

The head of the West Jakarta Public Order Agency, Abidin Mustofa, said Tuesday scrap iron vendors who had constructed stalls on the banks of the Ciliwung river would also be evicted.

"But we must work in cooperation with the city's small and medium enterprises agency to provide these traders with alternative places to run their businesses from," Abidin said.

Scrap iron vendors started to construct makeshift stalls on the banks of the Ciliwung river a few years ago. Their stalls are located near a line of permanent shops selling similar products that have been operating in the area since the 1980s.

The shops are located near a crowded intersection close to the Glodok electronic center.

Ade Tarsoma, an officer in the public complaints unit at the Tamansari Police subprecinct, said many motorists had complained about traffic congestion in the area, particularly during peak times.

"We usually deploy several policemen to direct the traffic at these times," he said.

Street vendor Pohak said his kiosk did not contribute to traffic jams in the area.

He said traffic congestion became worse along Jl. Mangga Besar I after the city administration implemented the three-in-one system in December 2003.

"Many drivers use the street to avoid Jl. Hayam Wuruk, which is a three-in-one road" he said.

However, Pohak said his small stall was located on the sidewalk, which made it difficult for pedestrians to pass.

"But the Mangga Besar subdistrict office allowed me to open my stall and I pay Rp 20,000 (approximately US$2.2) for security every month."

He said police had repeatedly warned him about being evicted, but no action had been taken.

"I am ready to move to a new location as long as the administration provides me with a proper place to run my business out of," he said. (ewd)
