… 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. …

Chartered flight business 'promising'

Agustina Wayansari, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Publicly listed chartered airline company PT Indonesia Air Transport is upbeat about business prospects in the country, amid an intensified drive by the government to boost oil production.

President director Roekman Prawirasastra said Thursday that because most of the industry's clients were oil and gas companies, the government's campaign to boost investment and exploration in the oil and gas sector boded well for the chartered flight business.

Roekman was speaking after the signing ceremony for a US$50 million leasing contract with a consortium of three oil and gas companies.

"The consortium of ConocoPhilips, Star Energy and Premier Oil has agreed to rent three helicopters, type EC155B1, for the next five years, which will operate on their exploration sites in West Natuna," he said.

The company owns 22 airplanes that are available for charter.

"We are optimistic that we can increase revenue to up to Rp 240 billion this year," Roekman said, adding that the company booked total revenue of Rp 219 billion (US$23.3 million) and a net profit of Rp 4.4 billion in 2007.

"It could be even higher as we also plan to enter regular flights in the near future," he said.

Finance director Krisman Tarigan confirmed the company's plan to begin offering regular flights in the future, saying it could increase the company's revenue to Rp 400 billion if they were able to secure a permit from the Transportation Ministry.

Krisman said the firm had submitted a request for 80 routes, mostly in the country's eastern areas, and for that purpose, had secured funding from Bank Muamalat and its syndicate to gradually purchase 25 airplanes.

"We have bought six planes, and will buy another four this year. By end of 2011, we'll have all 25 planes ready for operation," Krisman said.
