… 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. …

Garuda to Start Direct Flights to Amsterdam Next Year

Garuda Indonesia will begin direct flights to the Netherlands next year after an air agreement was signed between Indonesian and Dutch authorities, the Transportation Ministry said on Sunday.

Herry Bhakti Singayuda, director general of civil aviation at the ministry, said the bilateral agreement signed in The Hague revised the countries’ last agreement. “It was last updated in 1994,” he said. “Now we have aligned it to our agreement with the European Union.”

The EU lifted its flight restrictions on four Indonesian carriers — Garuda, Mandala Airlines, PremiAir and Airfast — in July, allowing them to fly in to Europe after being banned for two years. The ban is still in place for other local airlines.

Herry said the agreement designated Garuda and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as the two carriers to service the route between the countries, and included a code-sharing deal.

In the agreement, safety measures were updated in line with International Civil Aviation Organization regulations, he said, and tariffs were also discussed.

Garuda’s chief executive, Emirsyah Satar, said the airline would start flying to Amsterdam early next year.

“We will use our fleet of Boeing 737-800 NGs,” he said, adding that the airline also planned to use their Boeing 777s and Airbus 330-200s on the route.

The agreement with the Netherlands was reached after the “Initial Agreement on Certain Other Aspects of Air Services,” was signed between Indonesia and the EU on Aug. 17 in Brussels.

The EU agreement, Herry said, outlined possible new routes with Europe. The next destination was likely to be London, depending on market assessments.

A statement released by the EU said that the agreement would establish a direct legal relationship between Indonesia and the EU in the civil aviation field for the first time.

“Most importantly, it will remove nationality restrictions in the bilateral air services agreements between EU member states and Indonesia,” it said.

The flight ban was imposed by the EU on Indonesian airlines in July 2007 citing safety and monitoring issues.
