… 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. …

New airport lanes cut travel time

Triwik Kurniasari, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Tue, 12/02/2008 10:39 AM

On the first day of the operation of the newly constructed airport toll road lanes, commuters Monday enjoyed shorter travel times to Soekarno Hatta International Airport.

Airport toll road operator PT Jasa Marga opened the two new lanes, adding to the two existing lanes, to motorists at 7 a.m. Monday.

The old lanes are for those heading to the airport, while the new ones on the left are designed for those heading to Kamal, Meruya and Daan Mogot in West Jakarta.

As a result of construction, the airport toll road has been widened and elevated in parts.

The toll road now splits after Kapuk toll gate.

"This morning, it took about 45 minutes from Blok M (South Jakarta) to the airport. Previously, it took more than one hour," Samin, an airport bus driver, told The Jakarta Post.

"I used to get caught in traffic during peak hours because motorists heading for Kamal or Meruya blocked the road. Now, the condition is much better," he said.

Samin's fellow bus driver, Jon Henri, agreed.

"During today's rush hours, the traffic to the airport was smoother than before. I hope that the elevated road can also prevent flooding during the wet season," Jon said.

While the road to the airport was free from congestion, the other way around tended to be packed with motorists because the road is still under construction.

Jasa Marga corporate secretary Okke Marlina said the company was also erecting two more new lanes for the reverse road.

"We hope the construction will be finished by the end of this year," Okke said.

Jasa Marga started the project in March to prevent annual flood damage, which affects the airport toll road during the rainy season.

The toll road has been flooded a couple of times, paralyzing access to the airport and causing delays for passengers and the cancellation of flights.

The project, however, has been opposed by several environment NGOs, including the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi), the Indonesian Consumer Foundation (YLKI) and the Jakarta Legal Aid Institute (LBH).

They previously claimed the project, which led to the destruction of 19 hectares of mangrove forest, would worsen flooding in the capital and that the fishermen who rely on the forest for their livelihoods would suffer.

They also urged Jasa Marga to replace the destroyed mangrove forest by planting trees at nearby locations.

Okke said her company had prepared a plot of land to replace the destroyed mangrove forest.
