… 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. …

Social Affairs Minister Steers Into Trouble for Using Bus Lane

Jakarta Globe, Nurfika Osman & Arientha Primanita, May 05, 2010

Social Affairs Minister Salim Segaf Al Jufri has provoked the ire of commuters and officials alike after barreling down a restricted busway lane in the morning rush hour because he was “running late for a meeting.”

“We had permission from the Jakarta Police’s Traffic Management Center in the morning, as the minister needed to avoid the traffic in the Mampang area [in South Jakarta],” Heri Kristianto, a spokesman for the ministry, told the Jakarta Globe on Tuesday.

“The minister’s aide called the police and they allowed us to use the busway lane. It was urgent. The minister needed to be at the State Palace for a meeting, and on-duty police officers helped direct the car onto the lane.”

The Traffic Management Center, however, has denied the claim. “We’ve never given any permission for official or private vehicles to use the Trans-Jakarta busway lanes,” said Adj. Comr. Mujiana, a senior officer there, in a written statement. “It’s a clear violation of regulations, as the lane should be free of all other vehicles. “We are currently in the process of keeping all lanes in all busway corridors free of other traffic. No vehicles are entitled to use them.”

Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo said he would reprimand Salim as soon as possible.

“We’ll warn him just as we warned a former vice president who tried the same stunt,” he said, referring to Hamzah Haz.

A picture of the minister’s car was posted on news portal and on social networking site Twitter, where it went viral.

Users posted comments ranging from, “Why doesn’t he wake up earlier, like the rest of us?” to “They expect us to obey the rules while they don’t.”

Salim posted his own tweet 12 hours after the fact to apologize.

The Transportation Study Institute has long complained about the futility of keeping the busway lanes exclusive, saying public order officials should guard them to prevent other vehicles from encroaching.

“If the city administration really wants to reduce traffic jams, it should pay more attention to the [busway] so that more people will want to use it,” said Izzul Maro, a researcher at the institute.
