… 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 Inks Deals to Buy 30 Jets From Airbus, Up to 60 From Boeing

Jakarta. Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia intends to purchase up to 30 new wide-body aircraft from European plane maker Airbus and up to 60 from its US rival Boeing.

Both manufacturers released statements at the Paris Air Show on Monday that said the Indonesian state-controlled airline had signed letters of intent to purchase the new jets.

Airbus announced that Garuda planned to buy 30 of its new A350 XWB passenger jets, while Boeing said the airline intended to buy 30 787-9 Dreamliners and up to 30 737 MAX 8 aircraft.

“Following our success in revitalizing our regional operation in Asia and the Pacific, the development of our long haul network will be a priority in the coming years,” Arif Wibowo, Garuda’s chief executive, said in the statement released by Airbus.

Airbus said Garuda planned to use the new wide-body planes, able to fly from Jakarta or Bali to Europe non-stop, to expand its medium- and long-haul networks.

John Leahy, Airbus’s chief operating officer, said the new jet, which first went into commercial service in January with Qatar Airways, was performing well.

“The aircraft has set the new standard for the larger segment of the mid-size wide-body market and is already proving to exceed expectations in service with its first operator,” he said in the statement.

“We look forward to seeing the A350 XWB flying in the colors of Garuda Indonesia as it extends its reach to more destinations across the world,” Leahy said.

Airbus says it has booked orders for 244 of the planes from operators in the Asia-Pacific region, or almost a third of the 780 orders booked worldwide. The Garuda deal is estimated at $9 billion at list prices.

Boeing, meanwhile, said it would work with Garuda to finalize the order for the new American jets.

“The 787-9 and 737 MAX will be a great complement to Garuda’s current Boeing airplanes, providing them with additional capability and superior economics and their customers with an exceptional flying experience,” said Ray Conner, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

In addition to the new order, Boeing said Garuda also reconfirmed its intent to buy 50 737 MAX 8s, originally announced in October last year.

Arif said Garuda was upead that the orders of the new planes, all of which boast superior fuel-efficiency, range capability and technology from their predecessors, would help the airline reposition itself as a leading premium carrier in the long-haul market out of Asia.

Garuda flies to 76 destinations worldwide with nearly 600 daily flights and a fleet of 169 aircraft with an average age of less than five years.

There were no details on the time frame for the deliveries of the new planes.
