… 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. …

City to set new routes for 'delman' drivers

Mustaqim Adamrah ,  The Jakarta Post ,  Jakarta   |  Fri, 05/02/2008 1:33 PM 

The Jakarta administration on Wednesday promised new locations for delman (traditional buggy) drivers to operate, following a ban on their operation inside National Monument (Monas) Park.

"The administration and the Central Jakarta municipality will cooperate to find suitable locations for the delman so the drivers will not lose their income," said assistant to city secretary for people's welfare, Aurora Frida Tambunan.

Representatives for the delman drivers and the Indonesian Poor People Union met at City Hall to discuss the issue.

Dozens of delman drivers protested in front of City Hall, the third time in two weeks, bringing their decorated buggies with them. The administration failed to respond to the first two rallies.

In all three protests, delman drivers urged the provincial and Central Jakarta municipality administrations to grant them permission to operate inside the Monas park.

The municipality issued a ban to their operations last June. The ban was introduced because the municipality said the horses' urine produced a "strong smell of ammonia and polluted the air" while their manure spilled onto the park's grounds.

The drivers were then restricted to operate inside the park on weekends.

Recently, the administration decided to forbid the delman drivers to enter the park altogether.

The drivers now wait for customers in a parking lot on the southern edge of Monas, offering trips around the park on public roads.

The ban has resulted in a drop in their daily income from Rp 150,000 (US$16) to Rp 75,000, said Nanang, who has been a delman driver for 14 years.

Aurora said the park's grounds, now covered with stone blocks, could not absorb the horses' urine.

"As a result, it creates unpleasant smell," she said.

The buggy drivers could operate at the park in the past because the park's grounds were made of soil, which could absorb the urine better, Aurora said.

Previously, Governor Fauzi Bowo said horse urine could cause children to contract acute respiratory infections.

The city's animal husbandry, fishery and maritime department is currently studying a formula which can be added to horse feed to suppress the unpleasant odor.
