… 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 airspace still off-limits to RI, despite better safety

Erwida Maulia and Mustaqim Adamrah, THE JAKARTA POST, Jakarta | Sat, 01/17/2009 9:41 AM  

The European Union has recognized significant progress in Indonesia’s air safety, but the flight ban remains in place for now. 

After meeting with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Friday, Ambassador and Head of delegation for the EU and EC to Indonesia and Brunei Darussalam Julian Wilson said the EU was particularly impressed with the passing of the new aviation law that would boost air safety. 

“This is a significant development for the improvement of air safety in Indonesia and for addressing the concerns of the ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organization] whose negative findings caused the EU air restriction on Indonesia to be put in place,” Wilson said in a statement. 

However, he would not guarantee an immediate lifting of the EU ban on Indonesian airliners from European airspace, implemented in 2007. 

The ban came into effect after a string of aviation accidents in Indonesia, the deadliest being the crash of an Adam Air jet in early 2007 that killed all 102 people on board. 

Wilson said more work was needed for the law to be effective. 

“The [Indonesian] Directorate General of Air Transportation recognizes there is significant work still to do. For example, there are the implementing regulations to draft and pass so the new law can be implemented on the ground,” he said. 

“It is up to the directorate general to decide when it is ready to submit its case to the European Air Safety Committee that can review the air restriction on Indonesia.” 

He added the EU wanted to see a lifting of the ban as soon as possible, by working closely with the directorate general to help address the ICAO findings and help it prepare to present its case to the air safety committee. 

The directorate general of air transportation is under the auspices of the Transportation Ministry. 

Wilson’s statement revises an earlier claim by presidential spokesman Dino Patti Jalal who said the EU was mulling a lifting of the ban between March and June this year. 

“Mr. Julian Wilson said the EC is optimistic it can lift the flight ban by the end of the first half of the year. 

“This could happen in March or June, depending on talks on technicalities between the two parties,” said Dino, adding Wilson had insisted the flight ban was considered merely a technical affair rather than a political one. 

Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Djamal said the EU no longer had any reason to extend the flight ban. 

“Indonesia will attend a [European Commission] meeting in March in Brussels,” he said. 

“The meeting, which is held every three months, will discuss the possibility of the flight ban being lifted.” 

But if the meeting failed to do so, Jusman went on, the ban would be extended for another three months. 

The EC is the EU’s executive branch, responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the EU’s treaties and the general day-to-day running of the EU. 

Recommendations from two EU countries are sufficient to impose a flight ban, but approval from all 27 member states is needed to lift a ban. 

Jusman previously said the EU no longer had reasons for the ban except on a discriminatory basis.
