… 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. …

Route Expansions, New Planes for Thai Lion Air

Bangkok. Thai Lion Air, the Thailand-based unit of Indonesia’s biggest low-cost carrier, Lion Air, is expanding its routes with an extra 11 new aircraft this year, its director said on Friday.

Capt. Darsito Hendroseputro, director of Thai Lion Air, announced Thai Lion had ordered new aircraft from the Boeing 737-900 extended range.

“With the arrival of 11 new aircraft, Thai Lion Air’s fleet will reach 20 units. There are currently 60 departures to eight destinations which accommodate 10,000 passengers every day to, and outside, Bangkok,” he said.

The aircraft are part of Lion’s purchase placed with the US-based aircraft manufacturer in 2008.

Lion Group’s owner and founder, Rusdi Kirana, placed a $14 billion order for 178 Boeing planes which will be gradually delivered until 2017.

This was followed by a record-setting Boeing order as Lion sealed a $22 billion deal for 230 aircraft to be delivered in stages from 2017 to 2025, as part of the company’s plan to expand in the Southeast Asia region.

Darsito said Thai Lion Air, which launched operations in late 2013, will expand both domestic and international routes.

“In 2015 we will expand our routes to China — Shijiazuang and Chongqing — and Singapore for the international routes,” said the former Indonesian Navy captain.

Domestic route expansions include flights to Chiang Rai, Ubon Ratchathani, Trang and Khon Kaen. Thai Lion Air served 1.8 million passengers in 2014, with local travelers making up more than 70 percent.

Darsito said Thai Lion Air’s passenger load factor with the current nine aircraft reached 82 percent and scored 92 percent on time performance.

The airline’s ambitious expansion plans have been dogged by criticism of punctuality and service to customers.

Its Indonesia parent company suffered severe delays during the Chinese New Year period, which lasted for three days and left thousands stranded in several airport across the country.
