… 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. …

Airport Security Under Fire After Plane Hits Motorcycle

Jakarta Globe, Putri Prameshwari, April 20, 2010

Aviation investigators have started looking into a runway accident that killed two people on Monday after an aircraft collided with a motorcycle at an airfield in Tangerang.

National Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) spokesman JA Barata said a team of five investigators had been sent to Curug, Tangerang, on the outskirts of Jakarta, where two people on a motor cycle were killed when they were hit by a training plane coming in to land at Budiarto Airport.

“We’ve sent a team to the scene, headed by lead investigator Toos Sanityoso,” he said. “This is a serious accident.”

Two men, identified as Azumar, 24, and Yopie Hermawan, 16, a student at Bhakti Vocational Senior High School, were killed on impact at about 8:30 a.m. after illegally entering the grounds of the airport, used by the Indonesian Aviation Institute (STPI), in an apparent attempt to take a shortcut across the runway.

Coincidentally, the men crossed the runway at the same time a single-engine Socata TB-10 Tobago training aircraft was landing. The two people aboard the plane were also seriously injured in the accident. They were taken to Siloam Hospital in Karawaci for treatment after the unusual accident.

“It’s illegal for motorcycles to be on the runway,” said STPI chairman Darwis Amini.

He added that management of Budiarto Airport was not the responsibility of the flight school, and lambasted the lax security measures that had failed to keep unauthorized people out of the restricted zone.

Ministry of Transportation spokesman Bambang Ervan said it was not unusual for motor cyclists to use the runway as a shortcut, despite it being illegal.

“There are wire fences and gutters installed all around the airport,” he said, “but people still manage to find ways to break in.”

He said the airport’s operator, working under the auspices of the ministry, was unable to maintain around-the-clock monitoring of every airport in the country.

“Tight monitoring 24 hours a day, day in and day out, is impossible,” he said. “There’s just not enough people to carry it out.”

Danang Parikesit, chairman of the Indonesian Transportation Society (MTI), an industry watchdog, called the accident “an indication of poor airport security.”

He said all airports must strictly enforce their no-trespass zones, even if they only served as training airports.

“While universal transportation safety would be ideal, airports are expected to have much higher security standards than other transportation hubs,” Da nang said, adding that the airport operator must be held responsible for Monday’s breach.

He called on the Transportation Ministry to re-evaluate its policies on airport security, saying that the accident should never have happened.
