… 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. …

Kereta Api must repair signal system: Experts

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 03/07/2009 2:31 PM  

Following Thursday's fatal pile-up at a railway crossing on Jl. Bandengan Utara, North Jakarta, transportation experts have called on state train operator PT Kereta Api to promptly fix its signaling system. 

They also urged the administration to launch a massive campaign to promote safe driving practices. 

Izzul Waro, a researcher from the NGO Institute of Transportation Study, said most road users violated railway crossing gates because they deemed the system redundant. 

"Many city residents who are in a rush have experienced having to wait very long at railway crossings before a train goes by," Izzul said. 

"When that happens every day, then psychologically motorists no longer trust the security system and start ignoring the portals." 

Izzul added PT KA needed to invest more to improve the effectiveness of the existing signaling system. 

"The city's current railway signaling system was established in the 1980s," he pointed out. 

"Investment doesn't always mean setting up a new system. The company can allocate more money for frequent and careful maintenance so the system works better." 

Bambang Susantono from the Indonesian Transportation Society said it was impossible to alter motorists' reckless driving culture without first providing them with adequate infrastructure. 

"Providing infrastructure and campaigning for safe driving have to be done simultaneously," he said. 

Two people were killed and five seriously injured in Thursday's incident, when a train collided with eight vehicles - two cars, a truck, a public minivan and four motorcycles. Witnesses said the portal had closed long before the train came, resulting in a long tailback. The gates were then opened to ease the jam, and the eight vehicles rushed to cross just as the train came along. 

Akhmad Sujadi, spokesman for PT KA's Jakarta office, confirmed the accident occurred due to trouble with the signaling system. 

"The system was damaged by floods," he said as quoted by 

Jakarta has 365 railway crossings. Some 150 have manually operated portals managed by officials, while 61 have automatic gates, with 100 managed by local residents who charge motorists to cross. The rest are left unguarded. (hwa)
