… 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. …

Record number of tickets issued

The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Mon, 03/16/2009 11:42 AM  

The city police recorded 21,388 traffic violations during the first five days of a six-day operation intended to curb reckless driving in the city.  

The operation, code-named Patuh Jaya, initially aimed at punishing violations by motorcyclists and public transportation drivers, but later expanded its scope to offending private motorists, city police traffic chief Sr. Comr. Condro Kirono said. 

The operation was held between March 8 and 14.

As of Friday, the police had ticketed 11,801 motorcyclists, 1,404 drivers of private cars and 8,183 public transport operators, including drivers of minivans, minibuses and buses. No data was immediately available on the results of Saturday’s operation.

The violators breached various regulations,  Condro said.

Some motorcyclists were caught wearing substandard safety helmets, some had none at all. 

“We also stopped those who ignored traffic signs and traffic lights and some who made a sudden switch of lanes so as to harm other road users,” he said.

“During the operation, we imposed stern sanctions, tougher than what we did in previous operations,” he claimed.

He earlier said that he had deployed the best traffic police officers to ensure that no officers would accept bribes and ensure the effectiveness of the operation.

The police also recorded 121 traffic accidents, including 24 serious ones, which claimed 19 lives during operation Patuh Jaya.

The police also seized 424 motorcycles after their riders failed to produce a drivers license (SIM) or vehicle ownership letter (STNK).

The operation was conducted ahead of the official election campaign period, which will  kick off Tuesday; traffic violations are expected to soar.

During that period, supporters of political parties are allowed to tour the capital in motorcades. 

In the past, the motorcades have ignored traffic signs and supporters have often sat on the rooftops of buses or in the tray of trucks. In 2004, the city police recorded 18.979 traffic violations during the 20-day campaign period. Most of the violations involved the campaign supporters. In the 1999 elections, the police reported 29 traffic accidents, which claimed 11 lives during the campaign period.

Chairman of the Indonesian Transportation Society (MTI) Bambang Susantono said that the operation was only a warm-up for the police and called on them to do patrol more intensively.   

“The road users must realize that their recklessness in the road may harm other people,” he said.

To avoid traffic congestions and disruptions to public order, the Jakarta Election Commission has restricted campaigning on the city’s  main thoroughfares. 

Among the restricted streets are Jl. Thamrin, Jl. Medan Merdeka Utara, Jl. Medan Merdeka Timur, Jl. Medan Merdeka Selatan, Jl. Medan Merdeka Barat, Jl. Diponegoro and Jl. Imam Bonjol. (hwa)
