… 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. …

Air Asia opens new RI-overseas routes

Yuli Tri Suwarni, The Jakarta Post, Bandung | Fri, 01/09/2009 10:55 AM  

The Indonesian subsidiary of Malaysia's budget carrier Air Asia is planning to open at least 10 international routes in Indonesia this year to help reach its target of carrying 3.5 million passengers from Southeast Asia's largest economy. 

Air Asia Indonesia president director Dharmadi said Thursday the company hoped to generate Rp 2 trillion (US$185 million) of revenue from Indonesia this year, as against Rp 1.6 trillion from carrying 2.4 million passengers in 2008. 

Air Asia plans to open this year a new route linking Bandung and Singapore by operating two A-320s, each aircraft having a capacity of 180 seats. 

However, the airline is seeking support from West Java administration to immediately upgrade the runway at the Husein Sastranegara airport in Bandung for the use of its Airbus A-320 aircraft. 

"With a full cargo load, the A-320s are required to land on an airstrip with a thickness of more than 52 centimeters. We have proposed this since 2008," said Dharmadi after meeting West Java governor Ahmad Heryawan Thursday. 

The current thickness of the Bandung airport main runway is just 37 centimeters. 

Air Asia is planning to open 10 other new routes in Indonesia which will be served by 12 A-320 aircraft and five Boeing 737s. 

The routes include those linking Denpasar with Singapore, Denpasar with Perth in Australia, Medan with Penang in Malaysia, Medan with Hongkong, Medan with Bangkok, Medan with Phuket in Thailand, and Medan with Singapore. 

"We will only operate the A-320 aircraft if the airstrips in Indonesia meet the requirements," said Dharmadi. 

Air Asia carried some 160,000 passengers from Bandung to Kuala Lumpur back and forth last year, as more Malaysian tourists flocked to the city for shopping. 

The Husein Sastranegara airport is operated by state-owned airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II, which has already allocated Rp 60 billion (US$5.55 million) for improving the airstrip. 

Heryawan said the administration would help Air Asia in lobbying Angkasa Pura to immediately upgrade the runaway in a bid to allow bigger aircraft to use Bandung airport and generate more foreign tourist arrivals.
