… 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. …

Garuda won't reinstate pilot cleared of negligence

The Jakarta Post, Rod McGuirk, Associated Press, Jakarta | Sun, 12/13/2009 6:41 PM

National carrier Garuda Indonesia on Sunday ruled out reinstating a pilot despite an appeal court overturning his conviction for causing a crash landing in 2007 that killed 21.

The High Court of Yogyakarta quashed Capt. Marwoto Komar's conviction for negligence in the fiery crash of a Boeing 737-400 airliner at Yogyakarta airport on March 7, 2007, lawyers said last week.

Komar was sentenced in April to two years in prison, half the sentence that prosecutors had asked for.

Garuda said Komar, a 22-year career pilot, resigned after an initial accident investigation that found he ignored 15 automated warnings and calls by his co-pilot to circle around the airport again.

"He has not been employed by the company since then and we do not expect this situation to change," Garuda said in a statement. "We wish to reassure everyone that the incident of March 2007 has not been in vain as the airline has since invested heavily in pilot training and safety."

Komar was initially charged with deliberately crashing the plane. He approached the airport too fast and the airliner careered off the runway into a rice paddy where it burst into flames.

Komar blamed mechanical problems. He told the court during the lengthy trial he knew the plane was coming in too steeply, but when he turned off the automatic pilot and tried to pull up the nose manually, it did not respond.

Five Australians were among the 21 killed. One hundred and twenty people survived the crash.

Indonesia has one of Asia's worst aviation records and Garuda's planes were until recently blacklisted from landing in the European Union. Experts say poor maintenance, rule-bending and a shortage of properly trained pilots may be to blame.
