… 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. …

Biker clubs call for safety riding

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 03/05/2009 1:50 PM  

While some motorcycle clubs get tangled up in hostilities or group fights or even drugs, many other motorbike clubs have involved themselves in safety riding campaigns. 

Budhie Soenarso from the Pulsarian Detasemen club in Depok said they collaborated with radio stations to broadcast programs on safety riding. 

"We have collaborating programs on the police radio station Suara Metro 911 FM, and Cemerlang Radio in Depok," Budhie said. 

The club is also preparing public service programs with Bogor TV station Megaswara. 

Arief, chairman of Pulsarian's Depok branch, said they just received an invitation from the Bogor Police to collaborate in guiding bikers who drag race every Saturday night. 

"These bikers begin racing at about midnight near the police post. We believe that by making friends with them, they will see examples of our safety riding." 

Budhie said important matters were often neglected by motorcyclists, such as to not use cell phones while riding, to wear up-to-standard helmets or to wear one at all. 

Elsid Arendra, from Scorpio Owners Club Indonesia, said another example of not following safety riding was having beams that were too strong, thus endangering other motorists. 

"Riding on the sidewalk is also a no-no," Elsid said. 

He said the club got knowledge from institutions such as the Indonesian Defensive Driving Club (IDDC), a group that campaigns for safety riding. 

"The IDDC has trainers they send out to clubs to share knowledge on safe riding procedures." 

Some clubs share the cost to get the trainers to train them, and later club members spread the knowledge to other people such as high school students, he said. 

Both Elsid and Arief said that between the clubs, they will report if a member of any club has breached safety regulations. 

The number of motorcyclists in Jakarta has risen 300 percent in the last four years. The city's transportation agency recorded 3.5 million units of motorbikes in 2008. 

Comr. Djamin Boedi Oetomo, head of the Depok Police's traffic unit, said that as long as motorbike clubs followed the rules, then they did not pose any threat. 

"What disturbs other road users are the motorcades and the use of sirens on their vehicles." 

Djamin said there were clubs that obeyed the rules, but also clubs that did not care about regulations. 

He added that for the drag racers in the area, the head of the Sukmajaya district had actually reserved a plot of land where they could test their track skills in a safe location. 

Arief said all new members in 2009 had to pass the club's safety riding course first before being admitted to the group.(iwp)
