… 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. …

AdamAir to lease more planes next year to expand operations

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Low-cost national carrier PT Adam SkyConnection Airlines plans to lease five more planes next year to expand its operations, and has set aside Rp 30 billion (US$3.2 million) for each plane, says the company's senior executive.

President director Adam Adhitya Suherman said Thursday that the planes would consist of Boeing 737-400, which can carry up to 170 passengers.

"We want to dominate the domestic market as we realize that traveling by plane has become essential for many people in Indonesia," he said, adding that the planes would serve the Jakarta to Ambon, Mataram, Kupang, Palu and Kuala Lumpur routes.

Adam said that the airline preferred to lease aircraft rather than purchase new aircraft as this was cheaper. He claimed that if the company bought new planes, one day they too would get old and it would cost the company even more on safety and maintenance.

He said that AdamAir, which boasts a 90 percent load factor, currently operates 23 leased aircraft and serves around 20,000 passengers per day on 150 flights connecting 23 cities.

The passenger figure represents a 20 percent increase from last year, which he said was a sign of recovery following a slump in passenger numbers in the wake of a deadly incident on New Year's day in 2007, when an AdamAir Boeing 737-400 went missing.

Its black box was later found and recovered from the bottom of the sea off West Sulawesi.

For next year, AdamAir is eyeing further expansion by entering into a collaborate arrangement with Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) in a move designed to appeal to the bank's 30 million customers.

The agreement, signed Thursday, aims to facilitate customers by permitting them to pay for their tickets via BRI's automatic teller machines (ATM).

AdamAir said that BRI was the sixth bank it had teamed up with for such purposes after Bank Mandiri, LippoBank, Bank Niaga, Bank Permata and Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI). (ind)
