… 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. …

Another EU team to review air safety

The Jakarta Post
, Jakarta

Jose Manuel Barroso, the president of the European Commission (EC), currently on an official visit to Indonesia, said Friday that the commission would send another verification team to speed up a review of air safety in Indonesia.

Speaking to reporters Friday following a meeting with President Bambang Susilo Yudhoyono, Barosso said that the flight ban imposed on Indonesian airlines was a "technical matter".

"Let me tell you, the European Union (EU) was also forced to take some measures against European Union airlines, so this is a decision, but it is only on technical grounds," he was quoted as saying by AFP.

In July, the EU banned 51 Indonesian airlines, including national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, from flying to Europe following a series of air accidents here.

Recent crashes included an Adam Air plane that plunged into the sea off Sulawesi island on New Year's Day, killing all 102 people on board, and, in March, a Garuda jet that burst into flames on landing in Central Java, killing 21 people.

No Indonesian airlines fly regularly to and from the EU, but under European rules, passengers must be informed if an airline is on the list of banned carriers and can demand reimbursement or an alternative carrier for tickets bought in Europe for flights that do not enter EU skies.

An expert team from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) visited Jakarta early this month to verify the fight safety standards of the country's major airlines.

Director General of Air Transportation Budhi M. Suyitno said at that time that the results of the verification should have been reported to the EC's regular meeting in Brussels on Nov. 19 (Monday). However, no decision has been announced so far.

"And I said to President Yudhoyono that myself and the European Commission will do everything to speed up all the procedures, to work in close contact with Indonesian authorities so that the issue can be solved in full respect ... for the technical requirements of safety," Barroso said.

"In fact, I'm pleased to say that very soon there will be another mission here working with (our) Indonesian colleagues to do everything to speed up this process of reviewing all the safety conditions," he added.

Barroso acknowledged the measures taken by the government to improve flight safety standards among the country's airlines, saying that such efforts were necessary to protect passengers and ensure the safety of air travel both here and in Europe.

Meanwhile, President Yudhoyono said that he had asked Barosso during the meeting to help lobby for the lifting of the ban and to normalize aviation relations with the EU.

He said that the Indonesian government was committed to improving flight safety standards and would, for this purpose, cooperate with the EU on technical matters.

"I stressed that we were in the midst of serious efforts to improve our regulations and the safety of our aviation industry, and I'm glad that in recent times there have been efforts to rectify the situation," Yudhoyono said. (amr)
