… 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. …

Fakta releases survey on governor's performance

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 01/29/2009 1:51 PM  

A survey on the city administration's performance in 2008 was released on Wednesday and showed illegal fees and dissatisfaction with public services still abounded. 

While state schools are free, 58.29 percent of respondents said they still had to pay extra fees for items such as shoes and uniforms and maintenance expenses for school buildings, according to a survey conducted by the NGO Jakarta Residents Forum (Fakta). 

At least 51.43 percent of respondents said they still had to pay illegal fees at subdistrict offices when applying for ID cards or other documents. 

Many also complained that some subdistrict heads were not available when they needed to see them. 

"I understand what Jakartans have said in this survey. I feel awful over the fact that 55 subdistrict heads in East Jakarta were reportedly not always available ," Governor Fauzi Bowo said. 

In the survey, Fakta also asked the residents to comment on several issues, including evictions, health services and transportation problems. 

"This survey is like a school report for me. I was nervous about the results, just like a school kid, but the difference here is I am graded by 10 million people," Fauzi said. 

Saiman, a street vendor in Jatinegara, East Jakarta, claimed that he had no complaints about education services as his grandchildren enjoyed free school thanks to the administration's subsidy. 

"However, *the administration's* treatment of street vendors has not improved," he said. 

On residential questions, 86 percent of residents in the survey said their kampungs were good places to live in, while 12 percent said they were not satisfied with their dwelling conditions and 1.14 percent did not know. 

Of all respondents, 67.71 percent lived in their own house, 22.9 percent in rented houses, and 10 percent of them did not own nor rent. 

Fakta also noted that eviction was among the issues the residents fear the most, especially those who live in off-limit areas such as beneath the overpass bridges and along riverbanks.
