… 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. …

Medan's Polonia airport sees drop in passenger numbers

Apriadi Gunawan, The Jakarta Post, Medan

Airlines at Medan's Polonia airport reported a drop in passenger numbers Monday, two days after a fire gutted the domestic terminal.

Check-in counters, set up in large tents at the nearby Air Force base, and the airport's waiting room appeared deserted.

The head of national flag carrier Garuda Indonesia's Medan representative office, Yona Mardiona, said they had seen a significant decline in passengers numbers following Saturday's fire.

He said the number of Garuda passengers reached 98 percent of its 1,296 seat capacity a day after the blaze, but dropped to 85 percent on Monday.

"We recorded a drop of around 13 percent. I don't know whether or not this is due to the fire," Yona told The Jakarta Post.

On normal days, most Garuda flights out of Polonia are fully booked, he said.

He said despite the drop in passenger numbers, Garuda would not change its flight schedule.

"Garuda will still serve 11 flights from Polonia airport daily," said Yona, adding nine of the 11 flights serve the Jakarta route, with the remaining two to Banda Aceh.

He said Garuda would move its domestic check-in counters to the airport's international terminal.

"According to our plan, we will move the counters to the international terminal on Wednesday."

Adam Air relocated its check-in counters to the airport's utility hall on Monday.

During an inspection of the gutted terminal, the director general of air transportation at the Transportation Ministry, Budi Mulyawan Suyitno, urged airport authorities to do everything they could to provide uninterrupted service to passengers.

He said his office had told state airport management company PT Angkasa Pura II to take immediate steps to cover the effects of the fire, such as hanging plastic sheets over damaged areas, to avoid giving passengers a negative impression.

Asked how long it would take to rebuild the terminal, Budi by next month at the latest.

"It will be ready by early January at the very latest, although it might not be as good as before, since it will cost a lot of money. Angkasa Pura will cover the costs," he said.

Airport head of operations Zulkifli Muslim on Monday said the damage from the fire was estimated at Rp 10 billion (approximately US$1.1 million).

"That does not include damages incurred by third parties at the airport," said Zulkifli, pointing to the various shops in the terminal that had suffered damage in the fire.
