… 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 roads will ease traffic woes, Fauzi says

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

In an effort to reduce traffic congestion in the capital, the city administration, through its company PT Jakarta Propertindo, plans to focus on two toll road projects in the near future.

"The projects will help ease traffic congestion. Therefore, I want Jakarta Propertindo (Jakpro) to prioritize the projects so we can tell the public in the next few years there will be new toll roads," Governor Fauzi Bowo said Monday.

He said once a new 12-kilometer harbor toll road was completed, traffic to the harbor would be channeled straight from Cakung to the new elevated toll road, reducing traffic congestion.

Fauzi said Jakpro would also work on a section of the city's outer ring road called West Two, which will connect Kapuk in North Jakarta with South Jakarta via the Bintaro-Fatmawati toll road.

He said that aside from West Two, the outer ring road would have another section added called West One, which would pass through Meruya in West Jakarta.

"When these two sections are completed, traffic from the western part of Jakarta won't have to pass through the Jakarta inner toll road. If people want to go to Tanjung Priok harbor in North Jakarta, they will be able to take West One. If they want to go to Bekasi, they will be able to take West Two to Pondok Indah - Jati Asih - Bekasi," he said.

Fauzi did not reveal when the construction of the new projects would start as the administration and Jakpro were still discussing financing details.

"The harbor toll road project will require Rp 350 billion (approximately US$37,77 million) for land acquisition purposes, but we only have access to Rp 150 billion at this stage. The West Two project will cost around Rp 250 billion. We are still negotiating this issue," he said.

Jakpro president director IGK Suena said his company would discuss the capital structure for the West Two project with its partner, PT Jasa Marga.

"We will be able to acquire some of the land," Suena said, adding that acquired land would become Jakpro's equity in the joint company.

He said that under the open toll road system, the company expected to break even in seven to eight years.

Fauzi said the administration decided to become involved in the projects because it wanted to take part in their management.

"If there are any problems, we will be able to fix them. If there are any profits, we will be able to enjoy them," he said. (tif)
