… 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. …

Government targets 2009 to complete repairs on Indonesia's road network

Apriadi Gunawan, The Jakarta Post, Medan | Tue, 03/25/2008 11:20 AM

The central government has announced it plans to complete road repairs by 2009, in response to a national public outcry on the poor condition of roads.

National Development Planning Board deputy head, Max H. Pohan, said good infrastructure was vital for economic growth and the poor condition of roads could not be ignored for too long.

"The government has set 2009 as a target for completing all road repairs. We will complete the roadwork in stages in every province by prioritizing roads that lead to production centers," Max told the media Monday, after opening the 2008 North Sumatra Development and Planning Conference.

Max said North Sumatra was one of the provinces where the government would focus its roadwork project because of its role as a leader in global competition, especially since the establishment of the ASEAN Economic Community.

North Sumatra Development Planning Board head, R.E. Nainggolan, said the central government would concentrate on repairing the province's east coast highway this year.

Nainggolan praised the government's efforts in focusing on the east coast highway but said it was inadequate given the extent of damaged roads in the province.

"Pretty much the entire road system in North Sumatra is in poor shape. This is likely to have a negative impact on the improvement of people's living standards," said Nainggolan.

He said, according to current data, almost 20 percent of the 2,098 kilometer national road network in the province was in poor condition, while 30 percent of the total 2,752 kilometers of provincial roads and 47 percent of the total 27,177 kilometers of regency and city roads were damaged.

Nainggolan said his office would pay close attention to infrastructure issues during the conference.

He said most, if not all, of the regional leaders in North Sumatra had voiced their concern about impeded economic growth because of the inferior condition of infrastructure.

"Many investors are reluctant to do business because of poor infrastructure in the province. This is a setback for us, but what else can we say?" Nainggolan said.

"We don't have sufficient means to restore the damaged infrastructure."
