… 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. …

EU to keep ban on RI airlines

Andi Haswidi, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 04/12/2008 11:17 AM 

Indonesia will remain on the European Commission's list of countries whose airlines are banned from entering the EU, the commission announced Friday. 

Joining Indonesia on the list, updated for the seventh time since it was first introduced in 2006, are Ukrainian airline Ukraine Cargo Airways and all operations by Congolese carrier Hewa Bora Airways. 

This is Indonesia's third consecutive period on the list. 

A formal statement issued by the commission said Indonesian airline authorities had "still to demonstrate that they have completed the corrective actions" and the country's flag carrier Garuda Indonesia had failed to adopt sufficient corrective measures. 

"Pending both the demonstration and the completion of remedial action by Garuda and the other airlines it was decided that none of the Indonesian carriers can be withdrawn at this stage from the Community list," the statement said. 

Indonesia was first included on the list in July last year after four deadly crashes, including one of a Garuda Boeing 737-400 in Yogyakarta on March 7, in which 21 passengers died and many others were injured. 

The worst crash in Indonesia last year was that of an Adam Air Boeing 737-400 on Jan. 1. The airplane crashed in Majene waters, Central Sulawesi, killing all 102 passengers and crew. No bodies were found. 

The European Commission's statement said its Air Safety Committee, composed of experts from member states, had heard clarifications and explanations from Garuda before updating the list and would closely monitor the progress of the corrective action. 

"The conclusion is clear: Those States or airlines which fail to act decisively to resolve their safety deficiencies will be placed on the list," said Jacques Barrot, the European Commission's vice president in charge of transport. 

The list of banned carriers, effective Friday, includes carriers from Equatorial Guinea, Indonesia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Swaziland and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Nine individual carriers' operations are also fully banned in EU countries. 

At the time of writing, neither the local airline authority nor Garuda had made a formal response. 

In February, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafei Djamal hinted getting the ban lifted from Indonesia would be tough because it required consent from all 27 members of the EU. 

The ban was evaluated from the beginning of the year until February, with airline safety experts from Europe coming to inspect conditions on the ground. The experts found the local airline authority and local airlines continued to fail to meet sufficient standards. 

To address the matter, Jusman said he would take up the EU's offer of sending a representative to facilitate better communication between local authorities and decision makers in the 27 states. 

Since early last year, Garuda has been preparing to reinstate its long-haul Jakarta-Amsterdam route, which was terminated in 2004 because the airline was losing money at the time. 

To support the route, Garuda has already signed an agreement with Boeing to buy 10 B777-300ER airplanes. The B777-300ER is a long-range, wide-body, twin-engine aircraft able to carry up to 368 passengers.
