… 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. …

Merpati Plane Overshoots Runway, 20 Injured

A PT Merpati Nusantara Airlines 737-300 overshot the runway at Manokwari Airport in West Papua and crashed into a river on Tuesday morning, injuring at least 20 people, the Ministry of Transportation is saying.

Ministry spokesman Bambang Erfan told the Jakarta Globe that the plane, which had departed from Sorong, also in West Papua, was carrying 103 passengers and crew.

There are no reported deaths, he said.

The injured have been taken to the Navy Hospital and are receiving treatment.

The plane has been removed from the river and the airport has since reopened.

The airline has had its fair share of problems.

Just last month, the government said it would force the ailing carrier to resolve its Rp 1.5 trillion ($163.5 million) debt dispute with state energy producer PT Pertamina, as a part of a restructuring plan after years of mismanagement.

“We already called Merpati to present their 2010 and 2011 business plan,” said Said Didu, the secretary for the State Enterprises Ministry. “One of the main issues is the debt restructuring plan.”

He added that a Rp 250 billion debt to PT Bank Mandiri has already been settled.

In August last year, a Merpati Twin Otter flight between Jayapura and Oksibil 300 disappeared on August 2, 2009. Its wreckage was found two days later. All 13 passengers and 3 crew were killed.

In July last year, just days after the European Union agreed to partially lift its ban on Indonesian carriers, a Boeing 737 operated by Merpati ost a front wheel shortly after taking off on Monday from Biak, Papua.

None of the 110 passengers and six crew members on board the flight for Makassar, South Sulawesi, were injured in the incident, though the timing of the incident was an embarrassment to the government.

The incident happened just four days after the EU’s Air Safety Commission met in Brussels and decided to recommend lifting the ban on four Indonesian airlines.

Merpati was not among the four airlines affected by the commission’s decision. The four are flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, Mandala Airlines and charter airlines Premi Air and Airfast.
