… 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. …

Motorists fool police to escape 3-in-1 policy

Desy Nurhayati, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Wed, 02/04/2009 10:09 AM   

Police are finding it difficult to enforce the three-in-one zone policy during rush hour as private car users evade being ticketed by using trickery.  

Besides using traffic jockeys — people who they pick up to allow their vehicles to enter restricted zones — car users have another trick up their sleaves: dolls. 

“I once caught two people in a private car at Hotel Indonesia traffic circle using a doll seated in the car to look as if they carried three passengers,” said a police officer patrolling Senayan traffic circle in South Jakarta on Monday. 

“I warned them that they had broken the three-in-one rule, but they just laughed,” said the officer, who asked to remain anonymous. 

Under the three-in-one rule, enacted in 1994, private cars must have at least three passengers to travel along main thoroughfares from Blok M in South Jakarta to Kota in West Jakarta during weekdays from 7 a.m to 10 a.m and from 4 p.m to 7 p.m to ease traffic congestion in the city. 

However, the rule encourages people to serve as traffic jockeys as most of private car users have less than three people on board. Traffic jockeys are usually paid between Rp 10,000 and Rp 20,000, sometimes more, per ride. 

Traffic police officers patrolling three-in-one zones said they could not stop the violators one by one to ticket them or simply give them warnings. 

“We are not only responsible for monitoring the implementation of the three-in-one policy, but also ensuring that the traffic along this street runs smoothly,” said First Insp. Suprapto, who also patrolled around the Senayan traffic circle. 

Another officer patrolling the Harmoni intersection in Central Jakarta, Brig. Rahmadi, concurred. He said that he could only monitor what he saw.  

He said traffic police were often “kind and wise enough to let the three-in-one violators go. 

“We don’t always ticket them Most of the time, we only warn them and hope they will not do it again,” he said, adding that there could be more than ten violators a day. 

He complained that the violators usually got irritated when they were scolded by police officers.

“You know...that is typical of Jakarta riders. They know they are wrong, but they get angry when we rebuke them.”
