… 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. …

Busway fire puts heat on operator

Mustaqim Adamrah, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo has ordered an investigation into the fire that destroyed a compressed natural gas-powered TransJakarta bus on Friday.

"I asked the city police chief to thoroughly investigate the cause of the incident," the governor said at City Hall.

According to the Jakarta Police's Traffic Management Center, the bus caught fire around 8:30 a.m. near the Tugu Tani (Farmer's Monument) in Central Jakarta.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Officials initially said the fire started because of a short circuit in the bus engine.

The bus, owned by PT Trans Batavia, was traveling on Corridor 2 of the busway system from Harmoni in Central Jakarta to Pulo Gadung in East Jakarta, while carrying dozens of passengers.

Trans Batavia provides 55 buses fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG) to serve the corridor.

Passengers later reported smelling gas inside the bus in Harmoni, reported.

They said the odor disappeared, but returned when they arrived at the traffic lights near the monument, where the fire started.

Quoting the police's preliminary investigation, Fauzi said the fire was likely started by a short circuit in the bus' dashboard, "not a CNG leak as previously alleged".

"So, I call on residents to ignore this. They should not panic over the incident," he said.

Busway operator TransJakarta's head of operations, Rene Nunumete, also said a short circuit was the cause of the blaze.

Fauzi said he ordered TransJakarta and the city transportation agency to perform safety checks on all the busway vehicles.

"I want them to obtain a certificate for each of the busway buses that guarantees the buses are safe and roadworthy."

He said TransJakarta and the transportation agency would have to cooperate with a surveyor agency, like state-owned PT Sucofindo, to obtain the certificates.

"In the meantime, the busway will remain operational to maintain public services," he said.

A similar incident occurred last May, involving a CNG-fueled TransJakarta bus being repaired at a busway pool in Pulo Gadung. That incident left four people with serious injuries.

Nurmansjah Lubis, the secretary of City Council Commission B for economic affairs, blamed the poor management of TransJakarta for the fire.

"This incident proves that TransJakarta is careless when it comes to safety. It does not carry out maximum supervision," he said.

"TransJakarta could have avoided this incident if it carried out periodic safety checks," he said.
