… 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`s Lion Air to buy more Boeing 737-900s

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia's largest private airline, Lion Air, plans to buy more Boeing 737-900 series jets, to support its regional expansion to a number of countries, including Australia, its top executive said on Tuesday.

Rusdi Kirana, Lion Air's president director, told Reuters the purchase would be in addition to 122 jets of the same type that the company had previously ordered from Boeing.

"We are planning to expand to other countries in the region. The previous order was not enough," Kirana said by telephone. He declined to disclose the number of additional jets the firm planned to buy or the value of the deal.

"I cannot give the numbers for now. The deal will be signed in February during the Singapore Airshow," he added.

Lion Air recently ordered an additional 22 Boeing Co 737-900 series planes as part of its expansion plans, lifting its total orders at the U.S. firm to 122 jets, with a total list price of $7 billion.

The carrier had said it was looking at possible expansion in six countries -- Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, the Philippines and Australia.

"We are in the process of setting up our operation in Australia... We are planning to allocate six of our jets there catering to 10 cities," Kirana said referring to international flights from Indonesia to 10 Australian cities.

Lion has said it plans to raise up to $600 million to acquire stakes or set up new airlines in a number of Asian countries over the next five years.

The airline currently has a fleet of around 40 jets on 32 routes.

Lion Air has been aggressively expanding in Indonesia's fast-growing airline industry in a country of more than 220 million people spread across more than 17,000 islands.

The carrier is also expected sign a 10-year $1 billion contract next year with Delta Air Lines , under which the U.S airline will provide maintenance and services for itsfleet.

Indonesia's airline industry has grown rapidly since the government liberalised the sector after the financial crisis in the late 1990s.

But a series of accidents has raised questions over whether safety has been compromised and whether the infrastructure and personnel can cope with the huge increase.

It has also prompted ban from the European Union on Indonesian carriers flying to Europe.

There have been calls from some Indonesian officials to modernise ageing fleets to help improve safety.
