… 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. …

Balikpapan city tightens up clean air quality control

Nurni Sulaiman, The Jakarta Post, Balikpapan

Balikpapan is one of the country's cleanest cities and is now taking further steps to show its dedication to the environment.

At the start of this month, Balikpapan city administration begun installing air quality control monitoring devices in high traffic areas to detect pollution levels.

"On the first phase, we have installed the device near Plaza Balikpapan area, and then in busy other busy traffic areas, like in front of Rapak Plaza," Balikpapan Environmental Impact Management Agency head Syahrumsyah Setia told The Jakarta Post.

He said the device would help the administration measure pollution levels and decide on preventive measures.

"By learning about air pollution levels, the administration can take the right measures and produce the right development policy to manage air quality and minimize the air pollution that harms people's health," Syahrumsyah said.

He said that by installing the device, both the administration and the public would immediately get accurate information on the area's air quality.

The device is also equipped with five color indicators for easy evaluation -- green for good air quality, blue for average, yellow for unhealthy, red for very unhealthy and black for dangerous air quality.

The agency's secretary Soufian AS said the program was one of the administration's moves to fight global warming.

"Once the device shows poor air quality levels in Balikpapan, we will tighten up vehicle emissions tests in the city.

"In the long term, we might restrict vehicle ages, just like in developed countries, such as allowing only five-year-old cars to operate," Soufian said.

He said the first device was installed last week and its electricity connection would be completed this week.

"Within the next two days, we will be able to see the benefits," he said.
