… 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. …

Jakarta police set to launch 'friendly' traffic operation

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

In efforts to combat the recent hike in traffic accident numbers, Jakarta's police force said it will launch on Friday an operation called "Simpatik Jaya" across 213 areas in the city.

The `sympathetic will see 2,723 personnel used, is set to run until Feb. 24, and should target drivers violating road rules," said police traffic head Sr.Comr. Djoko Susilo on Thursday.

"We also hope this operation will make motorists more disciplined on the streets and will reduce accidents," Djoko said.

City police recorded a monthly average of 52,793 violations and 453 accidents per month on the road last year.

The numbers increased to 52,984 violations and 538 accidents in January.

The operation would also focus on reducing traffic jams at 72 spots around the city, including Jl. Gatot Subroto and Jl. Kramat Raya in Central Jakarta, and Jl. Raya Pasar Minggu and Jl. M.T Haryono in South Jakarta.

The police will also run a campaign around driving discipline in schools, offices and public places.

Djoko said the operation will see police use persuasive tactics when dealing with drivers, rather than immediately providing enforcements or warnings to violators.

"But for violations that may lead to traffic accidents, like reckless driving, we will ticket and fine them," he said.

The operation would involve detectives and intelligence officers.

Djoko said the involvement of other divisions was to overcome road crimes and to prevent police from taking bribes.

There are around 5.5 million vehicles in the city, 98 percent of which are privately owned.

With only 27,340 kilometers of roads, the city experiences severe traffic congestion every working day during peak hours.

Other factors include the fast growth of private vehicle numbers and many unscrupulous police officers, who take bribes to release errant motorists.

The traffic operation is the second transportation-related operation this month. Last week the railway operator company started its train riding discipline campaign, targeting passengers riding on carriage roofs. (dre)
