… 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. …

Workers race against time to complete West Jakarta tunnel

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Dozens of laborers continue to work day and night in an effort to complete the Beos pedestrian tunnel in West Jakarta, which is scheduled to be finished on Tuesday.

Some 70 laborers, divided into two working shifts, have been working from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the project, with some opting to work overtime.

Joko, a worker at the site, said he had been working long shifts, taking only short breaks to have lunch and dinner.

"And now we have almost finished laying all the granite," he said Friday.

Maryono, an executive from PT Bangun Karya, which is handling the final stages of the project, said the company had employed an extra 30 workers in the last month in an effort to meet the deadline.

"The agency only gave us around two months to finish off the project," he said, adding that it was currently 80 percent complete.

The City Transportation Agency plans to open the 110-meter tunnel to the public at the end of the month. The head of the agency, Nurrachman, said the city needed about two weeks after the tunnel was completed to prepare it for public use.

The tunnel, which started being constructed in 2005, will enable pedestrians to walk safely between Kota railway station, the Kota busway terminal and the other side of the street.

The area, located in the Old City, is notorious for chronic traffic congestion.

"We also expect the tunnel will attract tourists to the Old City," Nurrachman said.

The agency spent approximately Rp 22 billion (US$2.3 million) completing the tunnel, which is eight meters wide and six meters deep.

The agency divided the project into four stages -- digging, laying the foundations, the finishing stage and the installation of elevators and a water fountain.

The tunnel will have staircases at its entrance and exit, toilets for men, women and disabled people and a place to pray for Muslims.

Nurrachman said his agency would cooperate with the governor and the tourism agency to decide on the exact opening date of the tunnel.

He said his office was yet to set a deadline for the installation of the elevators and fountain. (ewd).
