… 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. …

Aviation industry pushes for end to pilot criminalization

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Indonesian Pilots Federation is seeking to ensure that the aviation bill does not allow for the criminalization of pilots by police investigations into aviation accidents.

According to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations, investigations into aviation incidents must be carried out by an authorized body, not by criminal investigators.

Indonesia received an official protest from the International Federation of Airline Pilots Associations after an Indonesian pilot reported the police investigation of two Garuda Indonesia pilots over the GA-200 airplane crash in Yogyakarta in March.

The president of the Indonesian Pilots Federation, Manotar Napitupulu, demanded that only National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT) investigators be granted access to the scenes of airplane accidents.

"If KNKT finds any criminal element to the incident, then the police can come in. Indonesia is an adherent to the ICAO international convention, so we follow international regulations. This is also for the pilot's peace of mind," Manotar said after a hearing on the aviation bill conducted by the House of Representatives Commission V for transportation on Wednesday.

He added that the results of the commission's investigation should not be considered an automatic basis for the police to begin making arrests.

"The police should perform another investigation themselves, from the beginning, only if the commission finds evidence that a crime has occurred. That's the rule," Manotar said.

A pilot who spoke on condition of anonymity said police are not fully qualified to conduct investigations relating to civil aviation safety regulations, which, he added, could trigger "miscommunication" during investigations.

"If there is an incident and the police investigate, it will seem as though we are suspects of a crime. Receiving administrative punishment from the Transportation Ministry affects us enough psychologically, not to mention the threat of the police imprisoning us," he said.

He maintained that the two institutions should perform their investigations separately.

"If the police want to investigate, they should not investigate to determine the cause of the incident, but only to see if an operator has destroyed evidence or if there is any indication of criminal action, sabotage or explosive materials," he said.

Josef A. Nae Soi, a Golkar Party legislator, said that according to the Criminal Code, police had the right to investigate aviation accidents.

"We will adjust the aviation bill to comply with the international convention. We will refer to the existing Indonesian law and make sure it doesn't run against international regulations," Josef said.
