… 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. …

No turning back: Britain launches EU exit process

Yahoo – AFP, Alice Ritchie with Danny Kemp in Brussels, 29 March 2017


Britain launched the historic process of leaving the EU on Wednesday, saying there was "no turning back", but its European partners were quick to warn of the difficult path ahead.

Nine months after the stunning vote for Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May gave EU President Donald Tusk formal notification of Britain's intention to withdraw from the 28-nation bloc.

The unprecedented move, just days after the EU celebrated its 60th birthday, leaves Britain deeply divided and has thrown a question mark over the future of the alliance.

"This is an historic moment from which there can be no turning back," May told MPs, to cheers from members of her ruling Conservative party.

British ambassador Tim Barrow delivered the letter to Tusk triggering Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty, starting the two-year countdown to Brexit.

"We already miss you," Tusk said in Brussels.

But French President Francois Hollande struck a tough tone, warning that Brexit would be "economically painful" for Britain, the first country to leave the alliance.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also rebuffed May's call for negotiations on Britain's withdrawal to run alongside talks on a future trade agreement.

Britain intends to leave Europe's single market in order to control migration, but is hopeful a new trade deal can be struck before it leaves the EU by the latest at midnight on March 29, 2019.

Merkel said however that the divorce must come first -- including tough talks on Britain's financial contributions, as well as immigration.

"Only when this question is dealt with, can we, hopefully soon after, begin talking about our future relationship," she said in Berlin.

The EU, which was forged from the ashes of World War II, is determined the Brexit deal will not encourage other countries to follow Britain out of the door.

May's six-page letter struck a conciliatory tone and called for a "deep and special partnership" with the bloc, which Britain joined in 1973.

But some commentators saw a threat in her emphasis on the importance of Britain's security ties.

She warned that failure to reach a new trade agreement would mean "cooperation in the fight against crime and terrorism would be weakened".

'Damage control'

Tusk is expected to issue draft guidelines for the negotiations on Friday, but the leaders of the other 27 EU nations will not meet until April 29 to confirm their joint approach.

The bloc's priority is to maintain unity as it faces the departure of one of its largest members, against a backdrop of crises involving migration, terrorism and the rise of populism.

A spokesman for US President Donald Trump, who has described the Brexit vote as "smart", said: "We want the UK to remain a strong leader in Europe."

But May is battling to keep her divided nation together.

The Brexit vote was only won by a narrow 52-48 margin and Scotland's nationalist government is now calling for a fresh referendum on independence.

May has said "now is not the time", even if Scotland -- and Northern Ireland -- voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU, but were outvoted by England and Wales.

In Edinburgh, 44-year-old computer consultant Mark Murphy said he had voted for Scotland to stay a part of Britain in a 2014 referendum but might now change his mind.

Brexit was "probably the daftest thing we've done as a nation for my entire life", he said.

'Implementation periods'

As with many divorces, negotiations with the EU could rapidly turn nasty over money.

The priority for Brussels is settling Britain's outstanding bills, estimated at between 55 and 60 billion euros ($59-65 billion) -- an early battle that could set the tone for the rest of the talks.

Both sides are also keen to see a reduction in tensions in Northern Ireland, which will have the UK's only hard border with the EU.

Many business leaders are deeply concerned about May's decision to leave Europe's single market, a free trade area of 500 million people that represents Britain's largest trading partner.

The Brexit vote sent the pound plunging and there are fears of what will happen if negotiations end without a new trade agreement in place.

The European Parliament's chief negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, said any transitional deal to work out the details of a trade agreement should be limited.

"We propose three years," he said.
