… 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. …

Old trucks contribute to W. Jakarta waste buildup

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Some 250 cubic meters of garbage in West Jakarta is not being transported to temporary dump sites each day because of the poor condition of the municipality's garbage trucks.

As many as 82 of the municipality's 164 garbage trucks are more than 15 years old, Amir Sagala, an executive officer with the West Jakarta Sanitation Subagency, said Monday.

"We are not supposed to use trucks which are more than 10 years old," he said.

Trucks in proper working order are generally able to carry between six and 16 cubic meters of garbage, depending on their size.

Households and factories in West Jakarta produce approximately 5,500 cubic meters of trash each day.

Amir said some of the 250 cubic meters of garbage left lying around each day would be turned into compost or be naturally destroyed.

"However, some of it is thrown into rivers," he said.

He said his office had just finished constructing five temporary garbage disposal centers in the Kembangan, Palmerah, Cengkareng, Kebon Jeruk and Kalideres districts.

He said each dump site was equipped with sophisticated and environmentally friendly machines.

However, Amir said his office was still not sure when the dump sites could be used.

"We are now giving training to our officials on how to operate the machines," he said.

Amir said the five new centers would accelerate the garbage transportation process to the final dump site in Bantar Gebang, Bekasi.

The municipality currently operates about 30 temporary dump sites.

To handle garbage in the area, the subagency has 724 employees, including drivers and street sweepers.

Several neighborhood units in busy areas such as Kota and Kembangan also employ people to transport garbage using carts.

Zakar, a Kembangan resident, said five workers transported trash in his neighborhood using carts every two days. He said he paid the workers Rp 20,000 (US$2.1) each month to collect rubbish from his fruit stall.

"But other residents who do not own businesses pay Rp 10,000 monthly," he said.

He said he did not mind paying the workers as they worked hard transporting trash.

"They offer a good service. There are piles of trash in my neighborhood."

Zakar said he and his neighbors often also burnt their trash.

"The trash just turns solid or blows away," he said. (ewd)
