… 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. …

Minister called on to help lower fuel surcharges

Medan, N Sumatra,  (ANTARA News) - Tour operators called on the transportation minister to force airlines to lower fuel surcharges which have to be borne by passengers in line with the increase in the fuel oil prices sometime in the past. 

"Now that the fuel oil prices have been cut, we urge the government, in this case the transportation minister, to force airline companies to lower the fuel surcharges," General Chairman of the Association of the Indonesian Travel Agencies (ASITA), Ben Sukma said here on Friday. 

He said that the lowering of the fuel surcharges should be made in order to make it easy for the people to travel by air with fares within their financial reach amid the global economic crisis. 

Ben Sukma said most of airlines at home and overseas had begun imposing unfair policies which tended to disadvantage passengers. 

He said that when the world oil prices increased, airline companies also increased fuel surcharges but when the oil prices were lowered they were reluctant to cut the tax-free surcharges which were borne by passengers. 

Previously, airlines here said that they had not yet lowered the fuel surcharges because the state-owned oil company Pertamina had not yet lowered the price of aircraft fuel (avtur) which was still sold at Rp10,000 per liter. 

Pertamina has said it was looking into the possibility of reviewing the avtur price fortnightly, following domestic airlines` and the transportation ministry`s objections to monthly reviews. 

"We do not object to reviewing the avtur price fortnightly if the airline companies reject monthly reviews," PT Pertamina spokesman Anang Noor Nurphynya said recently. 

Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said previously there was a possibility the price of avtur for domestic airline companies would be reviewed on a fortnightly basis. 

Airlines in Medan, North Sumatra, have been imposing different fuel surcharge rates. Garuda Indonesia imposes Rp360,000 per passenger for the Medan-Jakarta route while Sriwijaya Air collects Rp270,000 for the Medan-Jakarta route, Rp230,000 for the Medan-Batam route and Rp190,000 for the Medan-Banda Aceh and the Medan Pekanbaru routes.
