… 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. …

Indonesia Air plans to expand, launch scheduled, cargo services

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Publicly listed charter airline operator PT Indonesia Air Transport (IATA) is expanding its business into scheduled passenger and cargo services.

"We are planning to move, one step at a time, to open up scheduled services within the next two or three years," IATA president director Roekman Prawirasasra said Friday after a shareholders extraordinary meeting.

"Most airlines choose to compete on lucrative routes, such as the Jakarta-Surabaya route, but this company prefers to serve the eastern parts of the country," he said, adding that the company, which will serve the country's main tourist destination, Bali, and major cities in the eastern part of the country, saw major business opportunities in scheduled services.

IATA has purchased two ATR 42-300 airplanes for US$3 million each from the Denmark-based Nordic Aviation Contractor. In cooperation with tourism company PT Mirantha Nuansa Ayu, IATA has been flying one of the planes in Bali since earlier this month, while the other one is still in Denmark and will commence operations in May.

According to Roekman, IATA will purchase another three aircraft, either ATRs or Fokker 50s, in order to provide scheduled services.

The company is also considering whether to move into the cargo business, despite the current gloomy market conditions.

IATA plans to spend US$30 million on aircraft procurement this year alone.

Currently, IATA, with a fleet of 17 aircraft, provides services to a number of mining and forestry companies.

The firm, which is 79.8 percent owned by publicly listed PT Bimantara Citra, closed 2006 with a surging net profit of Rp 28.64 billion ($3.11 million), up by 89 percent from Rp 15.12 billion in 2005, despite a fall in company revenue.

Roekaman said that the increase in net profit was partly due to a decline of debt-repayment expenses.

IATA's revenue in 2006 fell by 12 percent to Rp 204.13 billion from Rp 231.05 billion in the previous year due to the strengthening of the rupiah against U.S. dollar.

For this year, IATA expects to boost its revenue and net profit by between 10 and 15 percent.
