… 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. …

Tangerang regency set to tax airline passengers

Multa Fidrus, The Jakarta Post

The Tangerang regental legislative council is drafting a bylaw that will pave way for the regency to collect retribution from passengers at the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.

The retribution is expected to be collected from passengers at terminal II, which is located in the regency jurisdiction.

"We will soon approve the bylaw on transportation because it will function as legal umbrella for the administration to collect donation from passenger retribution," the council speaker Endang Sudjana said on Saturday.

He said the retribution would be collected from passengers along with airport tax. It means that when passengers pay the airport tax, they will also pay the retribution to the regency in the form of donation. However, the council has yet to decide how much each passenger would be charged.

"The retribution can be as much as 10 percent from airport tax's domestic and international flights. If domestic flight tax is Rp 25,000, each passenger will donate Rp 2,500 and Rp 5,000 for passengers of international flights," he said.

The administration had long prepared plans to collect retribution from air passengers at the airport. Decision to create the bylaw became stronger after a council conducted a comparative study in several other regions across the country.

"We found that most of other regional administrations dig revenue potentials from air transportation activities and we have yet to do so.”

”The airport has operated for so long and we collected nothing but land and building taxes (PBB) so far," he said.

According to the council speaker, under the Regional Autonomy Law, the regency should also obtain revenue from several other sources of levies at the airport such as advertising and parking taxes.

"At least, we first initiate the revenue potentials from passenger donation and then we will talk about other things under the regency's authority and we are sure that airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II will listen to our wishes," he added referring to a state firm that manages the Soekarno Hatta airport.
