… 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 threatens ban on airlines

Mark Forbes, Jakarta, April 18, 2007

SEVEN large airlines will be banned within three months if they continue to fail safety requirements under a shake-up the Indonesian Transport Minister says will enhance aviation standards.

Hatta Radjasa said airports would also be upgraded, including lengthening Yogyakarta's runway.

Mr Radjasa said he was considering banning passenger jets that are more than 10 years old. Most planes now flying were older than 20 years, he said.

Mr Radjasa promised to release the full voice recording from the cockpit of the Garuda flight that crashed in Yogyakarta last month, killing 21 people including five Australians.

An investigation by Indonesia's Transport Safety Commission has pointed to pilot error resulting in the plane landing at excessive speed on a runway that did not meet international specifications. Mr Radjasa refused to speculate on why the pilot landed at 410 km/h, nearly double the maximum safe speed.

But the commission's chairman, Tatang Kurniadi, told The Age that Captain Marwoto Komar was claiming a wind "pushed" his plane faster during the landing. "He felt he was pushed, there were winds," he said.

Investigators were seeking further information from Meteorology Office officials to confirm the pilot's claim.

"He did not try to reduce (his speed). But then we have to find out why," Mr Kurniadi said.

Mr Radjasa said the cockpit voice recording would be released when the investigation ended in about three months. "We will open to the public, we have done it before," he said.

Mr Kurniadi expressed concern about the promise and said the voice recording could not be used in any criminal case against the Garuda pilot. Police are conducting a parallel criminal investigation into the crash.

By 2009, all major Indonesian airports would be upgraded to meet international standards and would be equipped with instrument landing systems and modern radar, Mr Radjasa said.

If the seven airlines with the lowest ranking in a recent safety check did not make changes within three months, "we will close them", Mr Radjasa said.

US warns citizens off

THE United States has advised its citizens not to fly on Indonesian airlines, saying recent accidents raise questions about aviation safety. In the message to its citizens in Indonesia yesterday, the US embassy cited an audit by the Indonesian civil aviation agency.

The audit of 54 firms last month revealed none made it to the first of three rating classes, while six were told to comply with safety regulations in three months or face closure.
