… 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. …

RI airlines should continue to improve, says minister

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said Thursday the country's airlines should strive to upgrade their services following the European Union's updated list of banned airlines.

"The European Commission is not yet sure our country's airlines have improved and consider the list a preliminary move," the minister said as quoted by

"We still need to convince (the commission) we will continue to improve," he said.

The European Commission on Wednesday renewed its list of airlines banned from flying across the 27-nation bloc, including 51 Indonesian airlines.

The banned Indonesian airlines included flag carrier Garuda Indonesia, Adam Sky Connection Airlines, Air Pacific Utama, Gatari Air Service, Air Asia, Lion Mentari Airlines, Mandala Airlines, Merpati Nusantara, Pelita Air Service, Sriwijaya Air, Riau Airlines and Trigana Air.

In the updated list, the EU lifted its ban on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Surinam's Blue Wing Airlines.

Jusman said he was disappointed the EU had not taken Indonesian airlines off the list.

"If they have noted our improvements, why didn't they take our airlines off the list? Even our President and the EU president had agreed to shorten the ban period," he said.

The minister said he would ask the Indonesian ambassador to the EU to convey his disappointment over the decision.

He said he would also ask the President of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for support.

Separately, presidential spokesperson Dino Patti Djalal said the Indonesian and EU governments were committed to restoring their aviation relationship.

He said negotiations between the Transportation Ministry, the carriers and the EU auditors were ongoing.

"There should be another assessment prior to the commission's next meeting in January 2008. We hope it could be accelerated with support from (EU President) Jose Manuel Barroso.

"If the EU has not lifted the ban by 2008, we will protest."

Despite the ongoing ban, Garuda Indonesia said it would prepare to reopen its routes to European countries.

"Based on the commission's audit results, Garuda has met the international aviation standards, even though there are still minor problems," said Garuda spokesperson Pudjobroto.

"While waiting for the ban to be lifted, we have been planning our service routes to Europe," he said.

He said the flag carrier would discuss the matter with the commission and support the Indonesian government's move.

The government has recommended that Garuda, Mandala Airlines and Prime Air be removed from the list.
