… 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. …

Indonesia Rejects Gift of Mirage Airplanes

Friday, 20 March, 2009 | 17:23 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Indonesia has a gift of one squadron of Mirage combat airplanes from Qatar. According to Defense Minister, Juwono Sudarsono, the offer was rejected because of the limited budget available for their maintenance. “The gift is fine, but the maintenance is costly,” he said in his office yesterday.

The offer was made verbally by the Indonesian Ambassador in Qatar, Rozy Munir, six months ago. According to Juwono, all he needed was for him to send a letter to the Qatar Defense Minister.

At a glance, Juwono said, the eight-year old French airplanes would need high maintenance cost. Meanwhile, the budget of the Defense Department and that of the Indonesian Armed Forces’ budget could not afford such an expense. Moreover, they are currently focusing on the maintenance of cargo planes, such as the Hercules. Juwono added that the gift grant did not mean no costs would be involved. “There would still be costs, like mediator fees,” he said.

The Defense Department refused the offer for other considerations as well. According to Juwono, two problems would occur if the offer was accepted: the budget and the additional burden on the air hitter system, creating chaos to the existing system. The Indonesian Air Force currently owns American F-5 and F-16 combat planes and Russian Sukhois.

In terms of air strike capability, Juwono said, more important is the kind of deterrence technology. Quantitatively, we may not have enough airplanes. “That is why we bought the Sukhoi, even though they are expensive,” he said. Hence, our defensive system is still on a par with Singapore’s, particularly if they buy 24 F-15 airplanes next year.

According to Juwono, the Indonesian Air Force was initially interested in the offer from Qatar. However, the problem would arise in the allocation as well as in the availability of spare parts. “We must be certain the spare part manufacturer will still exist. They could well be extinct,” he said.
