… 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. …

Report all problems, airlines told

Multa Fidrus, The Jakarta Post, Tangerang

The management team at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport has instructed airline companies to improve their reporting techniques to avoid fatal accidents in the future.

"Operators should not be afraid to report problems with their airplanes as it is for everyone's own good," head of the airport management's administration team Herry Bakti told The Jakarta Post on Monday.

He said improved reporting techniques would prevent the occurrence of minor incidents as well as fatal accidents.

He cited the example of a Lion Air airplane that flew without an engine cap last Tuesday, fortunately avoiding what could have been a fatal accident.

He said if the airline reported the fault earlier, a significant amount of risk could have been eliminated.

A watch tower officer found the large cap on the side of a runway near the international terminal Tuesday morning.

The company reported the fault two days later.

Herry said penalties were yet to be handed down to Lion Air as the incident was still being investigated.

However, initial investigations conducted by the airport's management team confirmed the cap belonged to a McDouglas 90 (MD 90) airplane, which are only operated by Lion Air.

McDouglas 90 aircraft are not currently being operated by Batavia Air and Mandala Air, as reported last week.

Lion Air public relations manager Hasyim Arsal Alhabsi told reporters the company only learned of the damage Thursday night.

Meanwhile, Mandala Air chief executive officer Warwick Brady said improved reporting techniques would not be a problem for his company as safety had always been its top priority.

"Safety starts at the top and we have a professional team of airline veterans from around the world in engineering and flight operations ... to manage our safe and reliable operation," he said.

Brady said each week a safety board convenes to review safety, security and the quality of the airline.

He said the company's 30 new Airbus A320 aircraft would also comply with the highest international standards of airline safety and management.

"All airlines in the world have incidents but the safest ones invest significant resources in safety and take proactive steps to mitigate risks," Brady said.
