… 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. …

Search for missing AirAsia jet suspended as night falls

Indonesian authorities say rescuers searching the Java Sea for a missing AirAsia airliner have halted their operation at nightfall. The plane was carrying 162 people, most of them from Indonesia.

A search and rescue operation in the Java Sea for an AirAsia passenger plane missing since the early morning on Sunday has been suspended at fall of darkness, Indonesian authorities said.

"We ended at 5:30 pm (1030 UTC) because it was getting dark. The weather was also not too good as it was getting really cloudy," transport ministry official Hadi Mustofa told AFP news agency, adding that the operation would resume early on Monday.

AirAsia Flight QZ8501 last communicated with Indonesian air traffic control about 42 minutes after taking off from Indonesia's Surabaya airport at 5:20 local time (2220 UTC) en route to Singapore, a flight that normally takes just more than two hours.

The airline said in a statement that Indonesian air traffic controllers lost contact with the plane, an Airbus 320-200, shortly after its pilots had requested permission to ascend to avoid bad weather - a standard maneuver in such circumstances.

Reports said the plane issued no distress signal before disappearing.

Stormy conditions

The plane was carrying 162 people on board, mostly Indonesians. The airline said three South Koreans and one person each from Singapore, Malaysia, and France were also among the passengers and crew. Britain later said one of its nationals was also on board.

Search and rescue operations have focused on waters around the islands of Bangka and Belitung in the Java Sea, near Kalimanten island, which is where the plane was situated when contact was lost. Singapore and Malaysia are aiding Indonesia in its search efforts, which have so far yielded no results.

AirAsia, a regional low-cost carrier founded in 2001, has never had a fatal accident.

A weather forecaster at Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics Agency said dense storm clouds were detected at flying altitude in the area where the plane lost contact.

"There could have been turbulence, lightning and vertical as well as horizontal strong winds within such clouds," said Sunardi, who, like many Indonesians, uses only one name .

Bad aviation year for Asia

Sunday's incident comes in the wake of two disasters this year that struck another Asian carrier, Malaysia Airlines, which lost two aircraft in the past ten months.

Flight MH370 went missing on March 8 while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. It has still not been found, despite a massive search operation by several countries.

Another Malaysia Airlines flight, MH17, was allegedly shot down over territory held by pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine in mid-July. All 298 passengers and crew lost their lives.
