… 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. …

Yogyakarta to reopen direct international flights

Tarko Sudiarno, The Jakarta Post, Yogyakarta

Yogyakarta's tourism industry is expected to bounce back this year thanks to the reopening of direct international flights from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, by the end of this month, says a tourism official.

Yogyakarta Tourism Office head Tazbir said Wednesday Yogyakarta would recommence direct international flights as local tour operators were convinced the province was ready to host foreign visitors again.

"Thanks to the reopening of international flights, we can now bank on international tourist arrivals, on top of those from Denpasar and Jakarta. Visitors from Asian and European countries will be able to directly arrive through the Adisucipto Airport in Yogyakarta," said Tazbir.

Direct international flights to Yogyakarta commenced two years ago, but were suspended after a powerful earthquake devastated the city in 2006.

The direct flights would be served by Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia, each flying the Kuala Lumpur-Yogyakarta route. Malaysia Airlines is scheduled to serve the route three times a week, while Air Asia will serve four times a week.

Malaysia Airlines will use its 144-seat Boeing 737-400 jetliners and fly from Kuala Lumpur to Yogyakarta on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while Air Asia will use its 180-seater Airbus 320 jetliners, and serve the route on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

"We are positive the targeted tourist arrival total of 150,000 will be reached thanks to the direct international flights. In 2007, Yogyakarta recorded only around 100,000 international tourists," Tazbir said.

He added the direct flights were expected to attract an extra 50 foreign visitors per day, while the remaining visitors would arrive via Jakarta and Denpasar.

"Our cultural tourism attracts many visitors ... people also come here for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (MICE)," said Tazbir.

The extra flights to Yogyakarta, he said, would have a positive impact on tourism and the local economy.

He added the local tourism sector had been looking forward to the direct international flights, because based on a 2007 tourism survey, most foreign visitors to Yogyakarta had arrived aboard aircraft, followed by trains and buses.

There are currently 26 domestic flights serving Yogyakarta daily, carrying up to 4,500 passengers. Yogyakarta has, until now, relied on overseas tourist arrivals through Jakarta and Denpasar.

"On top of promoting MICE tours, we will also boost our promotional campaigns through the internet, as surveys indicate information from the internet ranked second in drawing visitors to Yogyakarta," said Tazbir.

Most foreign visitors to Yogyakarta, data revealed, came from the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, Great Britain, France, Japan, Belgium, Poland, the U.S. and Switzerland.
