… 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. …

Report: Doomed Garuda jet flying at double normal landing speed

The Jakarta Post

CANBERRA (AP): A Garuda Airlines passenger jet was flying at 410 kilometers (255 miles) per hour, almost double the normal landing speed, when it crash-landed at an Indonesian airport last month, killing 21 people, a newspaper reported Saturday.

A preliminary accident report prepared by Indonesian authorities pointed to pilot error as the cause of the Boeing 737-400 overshooting the runway and skidding into a rice field on March 7 at Yogyakarta airport, The Sydney Morning Herald reported. A reporter for the newspaper was seriously injured in the crash.

Aviation experts confirmed that speed and flap warnings would have sounded in the cockpit and the pilot should have aborted the landing, according to the newspaper, which said it had a copy of the confidential report, prepared by Indonesia's Transport Safety Committee.

Chief investigator Tatang Kurniadi confirmed that the airliner was flying too fast when it landed, Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio reported Saturday.

Australia's Nine Network reported this past week that Tatang said the pilot and co-pilot had been arguing moments before the crash.

The newspaper said the report found no evidence of the pilots arguing.

Cockpit data recordings showed no mechanical problems before the landing. The report said the weather was calm, contradicting the pilot's reported claim of a powerful down draft.

The report also found the airport runaway did not meet international safety standards. Its safety run-off was only a quarter the recommended length, the newspaper reported.

The crash killed 21 people, while 119 others were able to escape through the exits of the burning jet.

It was the fourth accident involving a commercial jetliner in Indonesia since 2005. Experts say poor maintenance, rule-bending and a shortage of properly trained pilots may contribute to the sprawling country's poor aviation safety record.
