… 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 Is Stepping Up Efforts to Go Green

Parks and Recreation: Indonesia’s capital hopes to undergo an environmental makeover for the younger generation

Jakarta. Jakarta is planning to build six parks that will cater specifically to children by March next year.

Veronica Tan, the wife of Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and chairwoman of the city’s Family Welfare Association (PKK), announced the city had prepared land spanning 1,500 to 4,000 square meters for each park.

“Our target is to have these parks ready in three months,” Veronica said, adding that the administration would build one children’s park for each of Jakarta’s five municipalities and one district.

“The six parks will be a pilot project. In the future we will built at least two children’s parks for each urban ward.”

The parks, she said, would have to be in residential areas and inaccessible by motor vehicles.

“We aim to build a public space where children can do a variety of activities; so they have a healthy alternative to staying indoors, playing computer or watching television,” she said.

Veronica added that the PKK was lobbying the city for authority to manage the parks as the association has already drawn up plans to establish cooperatives or children’s health stations in each park.

“Another crucial aspect to this project is maintaining the parks, so they won’t be vandalized or abandoned,” she said.

Speaking at a Bank DBS Indonesia event where more than a thousand volunteers helped revamp the Kahfi Park in Ciganjur, South Jakarta, Veronica called on private donors to be more proactive in creating public spaces in the city.

“The government alone can’t make [the plan] happen,” Veronica said.

Speaking at the same event, Jakarta Parks and Cemeteries Agency chief Nandar Sunandar said the government planned to add another 50 hectares of parks by 2017 by converting 30 percent of the capital into green, open spaces, or RTH.

“RTH in Jakarta is still very scarce. Growth [of green spaces] in the last 10 years has been slow, from 9.85 percent to a little over 10 percent,” he said.

Basuki’s administration has been active in improving the city’s poor air quality and lack of public spaces, enacting in 2012 a city regulation that mandates 30 percent of Jakarta area to be green open spaces.

Nandar said the city also intended to turning South Jakarta into the “lungs” of the city by concentrating much of its efforts to building more parks in the municipality. South Jakarta consists mostly of residential areas but is rapidly growing into a commercial and business center.

It is unclear whether this drive would translate into stricter zoning regulations.
