… 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. …

Indonesia asks Saudi Arabia to audit airlines

Alvin Darlanika Soedarjo, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Transportation Ministry has invited Saudi Arabia to audit the safety standards of Indonesian airlines following its announcement of plans to adopt a European Union ban on all Indonesian airlines.

"Saudi Arabia wants assurance that the kingdom is doing the right thing by adopting the EU ban," Transportation Ministry spokesman Bambang S. Ervan said Tuesday.

"To convince them (otherwise), we have invited Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) to do their own audit here."

The Transportation Ministry received Monday a letter from the GACA signed on Sunday by GACA vice president of safety and regulation Mohammed R. Berenji stating that the kingdom planned to adopt the EU ban, and not that it had already banned all Indonesian airlines from entering Saudi Arabia as reported by The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.

Bambang also said that Saudi Arabia frequently used EU decisions as a reference point, but that "didn't mean (they adopted) all of the EU's policies".

The ban on all Indonesian airlines from entering EU territory took effect on July 6 even though no Indonesian airline currently serves European routes.

Legislator Abdullah Aswar Anas from the House of Representatives' Commission V overseeing transportation affairs, told the Post that the commission members would ask the transportation minister about the issue at their next meeting.

Garuda Indonesia spokesman Pujobroto told the Post that the airline supported the government's plan.

"What they want is to have a dialogue and clarify with the Indonesian government about the safety of Indonesian airlines."

Garuda Indonesia is the only Indonesian airline with routes to Saudi Arabia. Pudjobroto said the airline flew to Jeddah five times a week and to Riyadh three times a week.

Japan and South Korea have recently conducted spot checks on Garuda Indonesia airplanes flying to both countries and declared them safe.

Visiting New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark may give a much needed boost to Indonesian airlines as she will fly on a Garuda Indonesia flight to Yogyakarta from Jakarta this week.

Meanwhile, Bambang said that the ASEAN Air Transport Working Group (ATWG) had invited EU representatives to attend the group's working meeting in Denpasar from July 17 to 20 to discuss issues on Indonesian airline safety.

"We will elaborate on the travel ban and the improvement of local airline safety further with the EU, which is the group's special guest at the meeting," he said.

ATWG will also discuss several civil aviation issues, such as an open-sky policy and multilateral agreements between airlines. The group has also invited partners from outside the region, from India, Japan and the U.S.
