… 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. …

Yogyakarta city to convert barren land into parks

Slamet Susanto, The Jakarta Post, Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta city administration plans to buy barren land plots from their owners and convert them into parks or playgrounds.

Yogyakarta Mayor Herry Zudianto said the city would use funds from the city budget to gradually buy all barren land plots in every subdistrict.

"Even if the size of the plots is only 300 or 400 square meters, we will buy and convert them into parks to realize the vision of 'My Green Yogyakarta'," said Herry.

"We've been planning this for the last two years," he added.

He estimated that each of the 150 villages in Yogyakarta would have at least one park and one playground. However he added that the mayoralty could develop only 10 to 15 parks a year due to limited funds.

The mayor also told The Jakarta Post that to promote the development of the "My Green Yogyakarta" program, which was officially launched over the weekend, the mayoralty and the legislative council were still deliberating an amendment of the bylaw on building permits.

The amendment, expected to be implemented next year, would require residential areas to allocate some portion of land for the development of parks, green spaces and catchment wells.

To motivate residents to make their city green, Herry and dozens of mayoralty officers planted 1,000 seedlings of various plants at road medians and in the yards of schools and places of worship.

"This event is part of a program to plant 30,000 seedlings in cooperation with state-owned forestry company Perum Perhutani," he said while planting seedlings on Jl. Menteri Supeno.

The 30,000 seedlings will be planted gradually, with completion slated for early 2008.

"I won't distribute the seedlings and ask residents to plant them but I'll let those who are eager to participate in the program to ask for some seedlings for their own areas," he said.

The residents' awareness of greening will be priceless for the next generation, he said, adding that the program would make Yogyakarta a city inside parks, not a park inside a city.

"This is our dream, and we will make it come true even though it will take a long time."
