… 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. …

FAA to allow portable electronics use on flights

DeutscheWelle, 31 October 2013

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is set to end a ban on airline passengers using electronic devices throughout the duration of flights. Mobile phone use, however, will remain restricted.


The FAA announced Thursday it was ending its five-decade old ban on the use of electronic devices during taxiing, takeoff and landing. The changes are set to take effect on most airlines by the end of this year.

"I am pleased to announce that airlines can safely expand passenger use of portable electronic devices during all phases of flight," FAA administrator Michael Huerta told a news conference at Washington's Reagan National Airport.

Mobile phone usage will continue to be banned during flight, however passengers will be able to use smartphones, tablets and e-readers when set in "airplane mode."

Committee ruling

The changes come after a committee convened last year to study the affects of electronics use on airliners. Pilots, passengers, flight attendants, aviation manufacturers and mobile technology industry experts all provided input.

"The committee determined that most commercial airplanes can tolerate radio interference from portable electronic devices," Huerta said. "It is safe to read downloaded materials like e-books and calenderers, and also to play games."

He added that in approximately 1 percent of flights, passengers may be asked to turn off their electronic devices because of low visibility or poor weather.

"Some landing systems may not be proven to tolerate this interference," Huerta said. "If the captain asks you to shut off the device, it is for a good reason."

The changes affect carriers under the regulatory authority of the FAA, meaning the domestic and international flights of US carriers, said Huerta.

The new will also not apply to European carriers, which are regulated by the Cologne-based European Aviation Safety Agency.

Most international carriers continue to ban the use of electronics during taxiing, takeoff and landing and flights operated by foreign airlines coming into the US will not be affected by the FAA's new ruling.
