… 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 to let private business engage in railways

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The government will let private enterprise enter the railway business through a railway revitalization program to be implemented in 2008-2010, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Damal said.

Private business will have an opportunity to invest in and manage railway utilities and infrastructure, Jusman told the press after a meeting on railway revitalization at the vice-presidential office here Wednesday.

A government regulation giving the private sector a role in the operation and management of railways will be issued in March 2008, he said.

"Letting the private sector enter the railway business is in principle intended to create a climate of healthy competition in the field so that there will also be an improvement in the quality of railway services," the minister said.

He said the private sector would at least have a share in the operation and management of special train services to transport strategic commodities such as coal or oil-palm kernel, or also of airport train services.

About the railway revitalization program, Jusman said it was estimated to cost about Rp19.3 trillion and cover railway operations in the Jabodetabek (Jakarta-Bogor-Depok-Tangerang-Bekasi) region, Java, and a few provinces in Sumatra such as North Sumatra, West Sumatra, and the southern part of Sumatra.

In parts of Sumatra, the revitalization would include rehabilitation of bridges, roads, and other infrastructure facilities including the building of a tunnel through the Bukit Barisan mountain range at Indarung.

In Java revitalization efforts would be focused on increasing the capacity of services to keep up with the constant growth in the number of train passengers and of container and other goods transportation.

"It is estimated that by 2010 the number of people moving within the Jabodetabek region daily will reach 22 million. It has been decided that a separate company needs to be set up to serve the needs of that number of commuters in a better way," Jusman said.

The revitalization program would be implemented by a national team to be overseen by the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs.

Vice President Jusuf Kalla at the meeting asked the management of state-owned railway company PT KA to concentrate on efforts to improve its image. "The safety of railway travel must be improved and train passengers` comfort guaranteed," Kalla said.

The meeting at the vice president`s office was also attended by Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Boediono, State Enterprises Minister Sofyan Jalil, National Development Planning Minister Paskah Suzetta and Industry Minister Fahmi Idris.
