… 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. …

Polonia audited for flight security

Apriadi Gunawan, The Jakarta Post, Medan

The Transportation Ministry on Monday initiated a three-day audit of Polonia airport in Medan, North Sumatra to evaluate the airport's security, safety and services.

Polonia airport is one of five major Indonesian airports being audited by the ministry, which is under pressure after a string of aviation disasters.

Juanda airport in Surabaya, East Java, is also currently being audited. Three other airports -- in Bali, Jakarta and Makassar in South Sulawesi -- have already been evaluated by audit teams.

Coordinator of the Airport Performance Evaluation Team, Bahrum Lubis, said the 20-member audit team was focusing on the airports' daily operations, including safety improvement measures, security and services.

He said based on preliminary evaluations, it appears that several airport management teams are not making efforts to improve safety, security and services at their airports.

The audit team is not yet able to announce official results, as the audit and evaluation of the two remaining airports still need to be completed.

"The Transportation Ministry will announce the evaluation results of airport performance after the team has completed its evaluation of Polonia airport in Medan and Juanda airport in Surabaya.

"The announcement will be made in Jakarta, in June," Bahrum told The Jakarta Post on Monday at Polonia airport.

He said the evaluations would not be limited to these five airports, as the team would continue to evaluate other airports around the country.

He said the aim of the work was to improve airport management.

Citing an example, he said Polonia airport management has been advised to pay more attention to flight safety.

The airport was closed for more than two hours last week after a hole was found in its runway. Several days later, an Air Force jet almost suffered an accident when its tires hit holes in the runway that had been filled with gravel.

Head of Polonia airport management, Frido Frinaldo, said the runway has since been repaired and is once again safe to use, blaming rain for causing the potholes.

"In an effort to prevent runway damage, we plan to asphalt one kilometer of runway. This will cost approximately Rp 7 billion (US$777,777)," he said.

He said the work would take one month to complete and the airport would close overnight during this period.

"The airport closure will not disrupt activity, since the repairs will be done from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.," said Frido, adding that all airlines will be notified of the repairs.
