… 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. …

Angke station squatters begin to dismantle homes

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Dozens of squatters around Angke railway station in West Jakarta have started dismantling their plywood shelters as state railway company PT Kereta Api plans an area-wide eviction on Thursday.

On Tuesday squatters took apart four shelters, while two had been dismantled the previous day. All of around 100 huts in the area are expected to be dismantled by the owners within two days.

Narni, a squatter, said Tuesday it took her husband about four hours to take apart their plywood shelter, which was about 20 square meters.

"I have moved my valuables, like television, VCD player and mattress, to an empty warehouse nearby," said the mother of three children.

Narni, whose husband sells chicken in a nearby market, said she had not yet found an affordable new place for her family.

"I have seen a house not far from here but I don't have enough money to rent it," she said, adding that it cost Rp 3.5 million (US$372) per year.

Narni's neighbor Idris said he built his shelter, which also served as a food stall, in the area in 2005. He said that from the beginning the railway company had warned him of the possible eviction.

"People already understand that setting up huts here is illegal and we are ready to leave if the officials evict us at any time," he said.

He said he preferred to dismantle his shelter by himself because he did not want officers to bulldoze it along with his belongings such as television and clothes.

"Besides, I don't want to argue with the officers during the eviction," he said, adding he would dismantle his shelter tomorrow.

A railway company spokesman, Akhmad Sujadi, said his office planned to deploy around 500 officers to clear the structures around Angke station if the squatters had not dismantled them by Thursday.

"We plan to develop a new route carrying passengers from Manggarai in South Jakarta to Soekarno-Hatta airport, passing through Angke station," he said.

The company, which has recently opened new routes in an effort to ease chronic traffic congestion in the city, will start the construction in March.

He said his office told squatters in Angke about the eviction plan last month and had issued two warning letters dated Jan. 3 and 14.

"We will provide them with a free ride if they want to return to their hometown," he said.

The railway company plans to evict people from illegal shelters around 14 train stations across the city by the end of this year in efforts to meet safety standards that prohibit any construction within 5.5 meters of the railway.

Many people have established their shelters as close as 20 centimeters from the railways.

After it does away with the illegal shelters, the company will refurbish the train stations and build parking lots. (ewd)
