… 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. …

Mourners rush for seats on transportation to Surakarta

Ika Krismantari The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The demand for seats on planes and trains heading for Surakarta from Jakarta peaked unexpectedly Sunday night as hundreds of mourners flocked to attend the funeral of former president Soeharto.

Soeharto, who died Sunday midday, is expected to be brought to Astana Giri Bangun Cemetery in Surakarta, Central Java, on Monday morning, to be buried beside his wife, Tien Soeharto, who died in 1996.

"Our morning flight for tomorrow has been chartered by someone wishing to bring mourners to Surakarta," Garuda Indonesia spokesperson Pujobroto told The Jakarta Post, refusing to identify the person.

Pujo said the state-owned airline had scheduled an extra Surakarta flight for 9 p.m. Sunday and would consider scheduling yet another at 10 p.m. Sunday, because its regular flights were full.

Normally Garuda flies to Surakarta, more popularly called Solo, twice daily, with once flight in the morning and another in the afternoon.

Unlike Garuda, budget airline Adam Air was planning to use a larger aircraft on its Surakarta route instead of adding flights.

"We usually use a Boeing 737-300, which can carry up to 148 passengers, but tomorrow we will use a Boeing 737-400, which can take 170," CEO Adam Suherman told the Post adding that all flights to Surakarta and Yogyakarta were full.

Meanwhile, travel agent Vayatour said all Garuda and Merpati flights for early Monday morning to Surakarta, Yogyakarta and Semarang, in Central Java, were fully booked.

"People started to buy the tickets right after they heard the news that Soeharto had died," said the agent's representative, Robert.

He confirmed there were still available flights to Surakarta but only after 10:00 a.m., which would be too late for those hoping to attend the funeral.

Sriwijaya Air will depart at 10:30 a.m. and still has seats, he said. Meanwhile, Lion Air, which only flies once a day to Surakarta, will depart at 3:30 p.m.

In accordance with Islamic beliefs, burial is to be completed within 24 hours of death, which would be 12 p.m. on Monday.

To arrive on time, some mourners will travel by train to Surakarta, eight to ten hours away.

State-owned train company PT KAI said although there was an increase in the average number of passengers departing for Surakarta on Sunday, the regular night train for that route could meet the demand.

Meanwhile, KAI spokesperson Akhmad Sujadi said the company was preparing to deploy a special train to carry Jakarta passengers to Surakarta, should it be necessary.

"A train with eight executive cars, which are stationed at the Manggarai station, is ready for departure tonight. If that is not enough, we will deploy the special train." (adt)
