… 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. …

Accidental airport shooting injures four

Apriadi Gunawan, The Jakarta Post, Medan

Four airline passengers were injured Friday by bullet fragments after a soldier's firearm accidentally discharged at Polonia airport in Medan, North Sumatra.

According to police, the soldier was checking in his firearm at the Garuda Indonesia counter when the accident occurred.

A bullet was discharged into the ground during a routine inspection of the weapon by an airport staff member. The bullet fragmented, injuring four nearby Batavia Air passengers who were checking in for a flight to Jakarta.

The four -- identified as Alman, Bayu Prayitno, Hasanuddin and Usman, all Deli Serdang regency residents -- suffered injuries to their necks, hands and legs.

All four were taken to Elisabeth hospital in Medan. There was no information on their status as of Friday night.

Batavia Air official Erwanto said the airline would not cover the hospital costs of the four, because it was not at fault in the accident.

"It is not our responsibility, since the mistake was not ours," Erwanto said.

Garuda Indonesia's general manager in Medan, Yona Mardiona, said Friday the company had yet to receive details of the accident and could not comment.

A Batavia Air staff member, Agus Lubis, said this was the third such incident at the airport of a firearm accidentally discharging while being checked in.

No injuries were reported in the first two incidents, he added, without offering details on when these earlier incidents occurred.

Medan Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Bambang Sukamto said the firearm that accidentally discharged was issued to Sgt. Kodek.

He said the magazine was removed from the weapon before it was checked in, but a bullet was mistakenly left in the chamber.

"The case is still being investigated by the police and military police. We are still trying to determine whether the soldier was negligent or not," Bambang told The Jakarta Post on Friday.

He said the airport staff member who inspected the firearm had been taken to Medan Police Headquarters for questioning.

Sergeant Kodek, he said, had been taken to the Bukit Barisan military command.
