… 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. …

Indonesian President’s New Plane ‘Will Benefit Future Leaders’

The spokesman for the state secretary’s office said on Thursday that the controversial $89 million purchase of a new presidential plane made sense because of the mileage future Indonesian presidents would get out of it.

“Don’t assume that the current president [Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono] is the only one who wants to use the plane,” said Lambock Nahattands, the state secretary office’s secretary.

The new plane, a 737-800 series Boeing Business Jet, is not scheduled to be ready for action until August 2013, while the president’s term ends in October 2014, Lambock said.

Lambock said the presidential palace would probably use the plane for 35 years, in keeping with a 2006 Ministry of Transportation regulation on aviation standards.

“So we can see who gets to enjoy the plane,” Lambock said. “The current president and vice president will only get to use it for a short time.”

Budget watchdog the Indonesian Forum for Budget Transparency (Fitra) has criticized the purchase, saying the plane is too lavish and unnecessary an expenditure for a country with so many millions of people mired in poverty.

Fitra also accused the palace of exceeding the $58 million budget approved by the House of Representatives, accusing the palace of failing to publicly mention another $31 million that had been earmarked to outfit the plane’s interior and pay for its security system.

Lambock said the extra spending was necessary.

“For the interior and security we will hold a tender and the price can still change,” he said, adding that the government had respectively earmarked $27 million and $4 million for the interior and security features.

Earlier reports have indicated that the plane’s onboard amenities would include a bedroom, bathroom and shower, as well as a dining area and conference room. Lambock said the government had been planning to purchase a presidential plane even before Yudhoyono became president in 2004.

Currently, the president uses a plane rented from flag carrier Garuda Indonesia. Lambock said the new arrangement would ultimately save money and add safety.

Indonesia also requested Boeing to install six more fuel tanks so the plane could do a 12 hour non-stop flight, just like Boeing’s biggest plane, the 747.

“We need a plane that can both land on small runways and do long flights, so we need a special configuration,” Lambock said.

In a nod to the plane used by the president of the United States, the new aircraft would be called “Indonesian Air Force One.”
