… 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. …

Robust local economy to fuel demand for air travel: INACA

Rendi A. Witular , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Tue, 11/10/2009 9:41 AM | Business


A booming economy at the provincial level, coupled with an expected global economic recovery, is becoming the main driver of growth in the local airline industry next year, an association says.

Chairman of the Indonesia National Air Carriers Association (INACA) Emirsyah Satar told The Jakarta Post recently that because Indonesia’s economy remained heavily dependent on the local economy, local airline operators would tap more opportunities from business activities at the provincial level.

“This year, the legislative and presidential elections helped keep local airline operators afloat amid the global financial crisis.

But next year, the driver will be economic activities at the provincial level,” said Emirsyah who is also president director of state-owned flag carrier Garuda Indonesia.

Emirsyah forecast growth in domestic passenger traffic will reach as much as 10 percent this year and at least another 10 percent next year.

According to the Transportation Ministry, domestic passenger traffic reached 46.3 million flights in 2008.

Domestic flights account for 60 to 70 percent of all services provided by the country’s aviation industry.

Emirsyah also said international air travel was expected to start recovering next year from the current 8 percent decline in passengers and to reach upwards positive growth.


The number of international passengers traveling in or out of Indonesia topped 3.37 million last year, according to the ministry.

A roadmap designed recently by the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) has forecast the revival of the provincial economy to help fuel national economic growth despite an expected sluggish international market, including international business travellers into Indonesia.

Kadin believes that increased economic activities have started to reach the provinces outside Java since 2007, and are likely to gain better momentum next year as more business infrastructure is expected to be built, coupled with stable security and political conditions.

While Jakarta and Java now account for 55 percent of the national gross domestic product (GDP), this trend is likely to diminish as North Sumatra, Riau and Jambi will play a greater role as economic powerhouses in agriculture, particularly in palm oil, according to Kadin.

East Kalimantan will strengthen to become a hub for mining, oil and gas along with the Riau Islands.

The lobby group also indicated a shift in the spread of financial benefits from accumulating mainly in Jakarta towards accumulating in other provinces outside Jakarta, as indicated by shrinking third party funds in Jakarta banks.

It was not until 2007 that Jakarta lost its decades-long dominance in contributing the lions share of bank’s third party funds, falling from 67 percent to 36 percent of the total.

Provinces in Sumatra and the eastern part of Indonesia now account for more of these funds, according to Kadin. This means

more people in these areas have managed to set aside some of their income in banks as they are getting more prosperous.

This reflects that Indonesia is rich in natural resources, including palm oil, coal, tin, gold, spices, nickel, gas, and oil and that more of this wealth is now being retained in the provinces.
