… 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. …

RI speeds up compliance with EU flight rules

Aditya Suharmoko, THE JAKARTA POST, THE HAGUE | Tue, 02/10/2009 11:26 AM  

Indonesia expects to comply with all remaining flight safety requirements set by the European Union (EU), a prerequisite before lifting the flight ban, within two months, Vice President Jusuf Kalla has said. 

“We have about 10 requirements that we need to fix. We expect to finish them within two months, and in June Garuda (the Indonesia airline) can fly (to Europe),” Kalla said late Sunday speaking before Indonesian citizens in the Netherlands. 

This was part of the Vice President’s three-day visit to the Netherlands. Kalla met Netherlands Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, Economic Affairs Minister Maria van der Houven, Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Verhagen and Finance Minister Wouter Bos. 

Most of the remaining requirements are in the form of implementing regulations linked to  the recently enacted new law on aviation, which highlights stricter and tougher air safety compliance, Kalla said. 

Kalla added that following the ban, which took effect after a string of deadly aviation accidents in Indonesia, the deadliest being the crash of an Adam Air jet in early 2007 that killed all 102 people on board, the EU laid down about 60 requirements that Indonesian airlines should comply with to fly to Europe. 

Of the total, 50 have already  been fulfilled by Indonesia, he said. 

EU representatives visited the country in January and recognized significant progress had been made in Indonesia’s air safety. 

After meeting with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono during the visit, 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, although implementing regulations would still be needed to make the law applicable on the ground. 

Kalla added that the EU flight ban was considered as “introspection” for Indonesian airlines. 

“Although at first we felt it was unfair to us, there is an aspect of security and safety that we need to consider.” 

“We just need to wait for the government regulations and ministerial regulations.”

Indonesia will attend a European Commission meeting in March, and the ban could end as early as then.
