… 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 flight lands safely with burst tire

Andi Hajramurni, The Jakarta Post, Makassar

A Garuda Indonesia airliner landed safely despite a burst tire at Hasanuddin Airport in Makassar, South Sulawesi, on Thursday.

A spokesman for the airline, Pujobroto, said the Boeing 737-400, carrying 134 passengers and seven crew members, left Jakarta's Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 7:45 a.m., for Makassar en route to Manado, North Sulawesi.

He said the pilot had noticed the plane shake unusually a moment after take-off but was unable to detect the problem as the plane's indicators were normal. He then asked the ground staff at Makassar to observe the plane's tire before landing.

"The plane was holding for 25 to 30 minutes before landing and the staff at Hasanuddin airport informed (the pilot) that the inner tire of the plane's left main wheel had burst," Pujobroto said in a statement mailed to The Jakarta Post.

The plane is now undergoing checks at Makassar airport.

State-run airport management company PT Angkasa Pura I spokesman Yan Daulima said the pilot, Adi Nasai, had reduced his speed by circling over the airport and using up fuel to cut the risk of landing with a damaged tire.

"The pilot told us that one of the plane's rear wheels was punctured. The pilot also informed us that he was trying to reduce his speed as must as possible, so he circled over (the airport). Fortunately, he landed the plane safely," said Yan.

"We did not feel a jolt when the plane was about to land. It landed normally," said Sumiati, a passenger.

She said that passengers were not initially aware that there was a problem, but after two hours of circling above the airport they began to grow worried.

"After two hours, we started to feel anxious. Several passengers were looking at their watches and some looking out the window, but the plane seemed to keep circling and was not about to land. Everyone seemed quiet. My friends and I tried to remain calm and prayed for a safe landing," said Sumiati, who was traveling to Makassar with two friends to attend a convention.

Another passenger, Budi Siahaan, said he heard a blast coming from the left side of the plane soon after it took off, but did not think that it was from a rear tire of the plane.

Passengers only began to panic when they were evacuated from the plane on landing and saw ambulances, fire trucks and officers on standby, as well as the damaged tire.

Yan Daulima said his office immediately prepared the necessary safety measures according to fixed procedures the moment the pilot told his office about the tire

He added airport authorities had closed air traffic for 30 minutes but that it did not interrupt incoming and outgoing flights since the flight schedule happened to be empty.

Workers have towed the plane to the apron while it waits to be repaired.
