… 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. …

Crisis center says 20 areas prone to flood in Jakarta

The Jakarta Post |  Sat, 10/18/2008 9:56 AM  |  Jakarta 

The Jakarta Crisis Center has reported that as of Friday there are 20 locations in the city already witnessing a rise in water level. The condition likely to worsen as the city enters the rainy season. 

The crisis center advised the public within the area to remain alert while the city administration engaging in measures to minimize impact. 

The locations are spread evenly in four municipalities: 

  • North Jakarta (Sunter Agung, Koja, Penjaringan and Rawa Badak)
  • South Jakarta (bukit Duri, Pondok Karya and Bintaro)
  • Central Jakarta (Petamburan, Bendungan Hilir, Kebon Melati, Karet Tengsin, Tanah Abang, Kemayoran, North Gunung Sahari and Cempaka Putih)
  • West Jakarta (Rawa Buaya, Kapuk and Tegal Alur)
  • East Jakarta (Cawang and Kampung Melayu)

The Central Jakarta administration has been moving to prepare citizens should the worst happen. 

“We have requested the citizens to dump their waste in designated places, clean the sewers, especially those in their own neighborhood. That is at least what they can do,” said Central Jakarta’s chief of public works, Agus Priyono. 

Agus also said the city administration was cooperating with local the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) in setting up medical posts and flood evacuation center in 8 districts and 44 districts. 

According to the National Development Planning Agency, although the impact of the last year’s inundations in February on the overall national economy has been limited, it inflicted a total of Rp 8.8 trillion (US$897.6 million) in losses. 

Losses in the economic activities category amounted to Rp 2.9 trillion, including Rp 2 trillion in losses suffered by 75 large-scale industrial companies operating mainly in the automotive and electronics sectors. 

In addition, losses of Rp 742.6 billion were suffered by 560 small and medium enterprises in the textiles sector, and 2,100 in the furniture sector, while Rp 46.5 billion in losses were suffered by more than 16,000 street vendors, and Rp 62 billion by vendors in 40 traditional markets. 

Meanwhile, the floods damaged Rp 48.8 billion-worth of community facilities, consisting of more than 200 schools, over 30 medical centers and a number of religious facilities. On top of that, Rp 66.9 billion in damage was caused to other facilities. (and)
