… 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. …

Ministry staff to speed aviation infrastructure

The Jakarta Post,  JAKARTA  |  Tue, 03/10/2009 11:10 am 

The new Transportation Ministry director general for air transportation was appointed on Thursday, to speed up infrastructure developments and develop air safety in the industry. As well as completing key projects, the ministry hopes the newly appointed director general, Herry Bakti S, will ensure the implementation of the new aviation law, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafi’i Djamal said recently. 

Herry replaces Budhi Muliawan Suyitno. 

“I hope the new director general can finish the construction of Kualanamu International Airport in North Sumatra this year,” said Jusman, adding that construction was being accelerated to meet the government’s economic stimulus plan. 

The government had planned to build Kualanamu airport since 2007, replacing the existing Polonia Airport in the North Sumatra capital, Medan. 

Kualanamu was now 30 to 40 percent complete, Jusman said. The project has been estimated to cost around Rp 930 billion (US$77 million) and is being funded by the state. 

As part of the Rp 73.3 trillion stimulus package set aside by the government to help cushion the impacts of the global economic crisis, it allocated Rp 12.2 trillion for infrastructure projects. 

“The [Kualanamu’s] runways are still under construction, but the terminal and some other facilities have been completed,” Jusman said. 

Before assuming the position, Herry was an expert staff to the minister and chief administrator of Soekarno-Hatta International Airport. 

“Herry’s job is to ensure the implementation of the Law No. 1/2009 on Aviation — a law that had been successfully delivered by Budhi,” Jusman said. 

In response to international pressure, the new law stipulates tougher terms for air safety. 

After a string of airline accidents in Indonesia and the failure of local authorities to provide adequate safety assurances, in 2007 the European Union (EU) imposed a blanket ban forbidding any Indonesian airlines from entering its air space. 

The minister said he had also ordered Herry to develop safety management in every Indonesian airline, to bring it in line with the ministry’s Road Map to Zero Accidents and, hopefully, end the EU ban. 

The road map includes recommendations to increase the budget for air transport regulations, and to allow the National Transportation Safety Committee to report directly to the President. 

Commenting on the task, Herry said, he would prefer to use a technical approach through discussions as his strategy toward lifting the EU ban, as opposed to legal action.
