… 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. …

Jakarta: World’s Worst for Traffic Gridlock

Jakarta. Jakarta has been named the city with the worst traffic congestion in the world, according to a new study, while Surabaya — Indonesia’s second-biggest city — has been ranked fourth among 78 international cities and regions.

The Castrol-Magnatec Stop-Start Index, published by British motor-oil company Castrol, used GPS data to calculate the frequency of stop-start driving among motorists across the globe.

Drivers in Jakarta made 33,240 stop-starts annually, the study found, while drivers in Surabaya made 29,880. Motorists in Istanbul, Turkey, which took the number two spot on the index, registered 32.520 stop-starts annually; while drivers in Mexico City, number three on the list, recorded 30,840 stop-starts on average.

At the other end of the scale, drivers in Rotterdam in the Netherlands registered 6360 stop-starts a year.

The index, which was put together using the GPS data provided by Tom Tom navigation users, said drivers experiencing more than 18,000 stop-starts a year experienced “severe” traffic.

The results won’t surprise many commuters in the capital and Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama admitted there was more to do.

He said he was unhappy with the index but did not deny his city had the worst traffic in the world.

“It is true anyway. If you don’t have a train-based transportation system, there will be traffic congestion. Even Japan still has traffic congestion, let alone Jakarta,” Basuki said on Wednesday.

“That is why we have started building a train-based transportation system, at least it can solve the problem gradually,” he said.

Basuki said Jakarta’s traffic was his biggest challenge in governing the capital and it would take decades until the city would overcome the problem.

“This is homework for the next 30, 40 years. We can only endure it for now,” he said.

Cities with the worst stop-start traffic:

1. Jakarta, Indonesia (33,240)

2. Istanbul, Turkey (32, 520)

3. Mexico City, Mexico (30,840)

4. Surabaya, Indonesia (29,880)

5. St. Petersburg, Russia (29,040)

6. Moscow, Russia (28,680)

7. Rome, Italy (28,680)

8. Bangkok, Thailand (27,480)

9. Guadalajara, Mexico (24,840)
