… 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. …

Mimika starts new plane, ferry, tankers

Markus Makur, The Jakarta Post, Timika | Wed, 12/03/2008 11:11 AM  

The Mimika administration in Papua started operating an airplane, a landing craft ferry and two fresh water tankers Tuesday to serve residents in the regency. 

Acting Mimika regent Athanasius Allo Rafra officiated the launch of the three different transportation modes at Moses Kilangin Airport in Timika. 

The launch was attended by Mimika Legislative Council Speaker Yoseph Yopi Kilangin, a number of high-ranking local officials as well as religious and community leaders. 

Timika bishop Mgr. John Philip Saklil was there to christen the plane during a brief ceremony. The plan underwent a one-month trial at airstrips in the regency and the central mountains region. 

The Transportation Ministry issued an operation license for the plane -- the first ever to operate in the regency -- in response to the public's expectations for transportation modes. 

The regency administration purchased the Swiss-made Pilatus PC-6 Porter complete with supporting equipment, one-year insurance and spare parts at a sum of Rp 23 billion (US$1.85 million). 

The airplane was christened Amor -- short for Amungme and Kamoro, the largest tribes in the regency. It will be operated by PT Mimika Air to serve six districts in the mountainous part of the regency, including Agimuga, Jila and Jita districts. 

The single turboprop engine Pilatus PC-6 Porter is a versatile general utility aircraft with a short take-off and landing ability, making it suited to the mountainous terrain of Papua. 

The aircraft has a capacity of two crew members and six passengers, or a cargo of 1,000 kilograms. 

The ferry was christened Mumuika, the old name of Mimika, and has a capacity of 30 passengers and five crew members and 100 tons of cargo. 

The ferry is to serve six coastal districts in Mimika, including East Mimika, West Mimika and Tipuka districts. 

In his keynote speech, Kilangin said the legislature had approved the plane procurement after a heated debate during budgetary discussions. 

Because of significant public support, the legislature finally endorsed the purchase of the plane, he added. 

Kilangin said the Mimika regency had made a breakthrough in purchasing the plane as it would open up the isolated regency. 

Six airstrips in the mountainous region are ready, he said. 

Amungme tribal figure Thomas Wanwang said the procurement of the plane, ferry and water tankers met the public's expectations. 

"I am grateful and happy that the plane and ferry will serve people in mountainous and coastal areas of Mimika," he said. 

Athanasius said the procurements were purely for the sake of the people of Mimika. 

"I once told Papua Governor Barnabas Suebu that the provincial administration had already bought six ferries, but they only served people in the northern part of the province," he said. 

"So I took the initiative to purchase the ferry for the sake of coastal communities in Mimika." 

The acting regent ends his tenure as acting regent on Wednesday, handing over his authority to the governor.
