… 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. …

Dutch senators approve compromise on EU-Ukraine pact

The Hague (AFP) - Dutch senators backed a hard-won compromise Tuesday to ratify an amended EU-Ukraine pact, clearing one of the final hurdles for approval of the deal to help nudge Kiev closer to the West.

The draft bill was approved by a vote of 50 to 25 in the upper house of parliament in the Netherlands, the only EU state yet to ratify the pact aimed at steering Ukraine away from its former Soviet masters in Moscow.

"This is the last parliamentary step," for the amended deal to be approved, senate spokesman Gert Riphagen said.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, whose liberal VVD party won a general election in March, sought a compromise after Dutch voters rejected the initial pact in an April 2016 referendum.

Rutte is now expected to return to Brussels with the Dutch go-ahead once the measure is signed into law which could happen as early as Thursday.

In Brussels, European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said, "Our Association Agreement... is now one step closer to being ratified."

The vote sent "an important signal from the Netherlands and the entire European Union to our Ukrainian friends: Ukraine's place is in Europe. Ukraine's future lies with Europe," Juncker said in a statement.

He added that he would like to see the process finalized in time for the EU-Ukraine summit in July.

Dutch officials said European bodies expected the accord to enter into force around September 1.

In Kiev, Ukraine's President Petro Poroshenko thanked Rutte and his country for their support.

"The path to this point was long and much more complicated than Ukraine imagined at the start of the process," Poroshenko said on his Facebook page.

But he hailed the treaty as "a guarantee of our freedom, independence and territorial integrity. Europe is our civilizational choice."

Moscow however angrily retorted that the ratification "of this famous accord will give the authorities in Kiev a bit more time to cultivate the fable of a 'radiant European future'."

"Kiev will continue to pretend not to foresee the rapid transformation of Ukraine from a developed industrial state into an agrarian appendage and a source of raw materials for the EU," Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told Russia's TASS news agency.

Treaty rejected

The original treaty deal was opposed by eurosceptic groups in the Netherlands who forced the issue to a referendum.

About 60 percent of voters rejected the treaty, though turnout was barely above the 30 percent needed for the results to be validated.

The rejection dealt a blow to Rutte and his coalition government at a time when the Netherlands was at the helm of the EU's rotating presidency.

Rutte managed to work out a compromise deal that limits the EU's defence commitments to Ukraine and does not provide any guarantees to Kiev of full EU membership in the future.

The lower house of parliament had approved the amended pact by a large majority in February.

Rutte, however, has caught flack from opposition politicians and the organisers of the referendum, who accused the Dutch leader of ignoring the voice of voters by not rejecting the agreement out of hand.
