… 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. …

Pilot error blamed for fiery crash of jetliner in March

The Jakarta Post

JAKARTA (AP): The pilot of an Indonesian jetliner that crash-landed in March, killing 21 people, ignored repeated warnings that he was approaching the runway at almost double the landing speed and should circle around again, an investigation found.

The Boeing 737-400 skidded off the runway at the Yogyakarta airport and plowed into a rice field before bursting into flames. It was the third accident this year involving a commercial jetliner in Indonesia, prompting foreign governments to issue warnings about air safety standards.

Tatang Kurniadi, the chief of the National Transportation Safety Board, said following completion of the final crash report that the Garuda Indonesia plane was approaching at 408 kph - 247 kph faster than normal.

"The aircraft was flown at an excessive air speed and steep flight path angle during the approach and landing," he said, blaming pilot error.

The attention of the chief pilot "was fixated ... on landing the aircraft and he either did not hear or disregarded the Ground Proximity Warning System (GPWS) alerts and warnings," which sounded 15 times, Kurniadi said, adding that the pilot also "ignored calls by the co-pilot to go around" again.

Both survived the crash.

The pilot had more than 15,000 hours of Boeing 737-400 flight experience and the co-pilot 2,000. The March 7 flight, which was carrying several Australian diplomats and journalists, was their first together.

Kurniadi said the investigation also blamed the co-pilot for failing to follow company procedures and take control of the aircraft "when he saw that the pilot in command repeatedly ignored the GPWS ... alerts and warnings."

"The records also showed no evidence that the co-pilot had been checked or received simulator training in the appropriate vital actions and responses," it found.

The European Union blacklisted all of Indonesia's airlines soon after the accident and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration this year downgraded the nation's rating to its lowest category.
