… 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. …

Four women trying to solve Britain's power riddle

London (AFP) - In the high-stakes political chess game that has followed Britain's confusing general election, four women will be making the next moves.

Two of them -- Prime Minister Theresa may and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon -- are on the back foot following heavy electoral losses.

The other two are on the rise -- Arlene Foster, head of the ultra-conservative Democratic Unionist Party, and Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson.

Theresa May

Britain's first female prime minister since Margaret Thatcher, who governed from 1979 to 1990, May has distanced herself from the legacy of the "Iron Lady".

The current premier's rein is also likely to be considerably shorter, after May's decision to call an election three years early dramatically backfired when the Conservatives lost their majority.

An advocate of a "hard" Brexit, committed to Britain leaving the European single market and cutting immigration from the bloc, May ran a campaign focused on her supposedly "strong and stable" leadership ahead of negotiations starting with Brussels.

But she failed to inspire voters and came under criticism for appearing cold and stiff, lacking the personal touch despite her high popularity ratings at the start of the election campaign.

The 60-year-old vicar's daughter has created an association to promote women in politics and she has boasted of being an inspiration to others, but rarely opens up about her personal motivations.

Nicola Sturgeon

The first female leader of the Scottish National Party, Sturgeon has seen her plans for a second independence referendum shaken by the election results which saw her party lose 21 of its 56 seats.

A lawyer by trade who grew up in a working class family, she has championed herself as the voice of the 62 percent of Scots who voted last year to remain in the European Union.

Sturgeon, 46, has appealed to Scotland's pro-European sentiment to call for an independence referendum despite voters rejecting such a breakaway in 2014.

A frequent critic of everyday sexism in political life, she recently said women have a tougher time when making media appearances.

"Every time a woman politician goes in front of a camera, there are maybe 100 things that she has to worry about, consciously or subconsciously, that a man will never have," she told the Gentlewoman magazine.

Some reporters are "only interested in our shoes", she added.

Ruth Davidson

The head of the Scottish Conservatives, Davidson saw her party gain a dozen seats in the general election.

That was in part down to her opposition to Sturgeon's calls for another independence referendum.

Cutting a charismatic and jovial figure, the 38-year-old has brought a breath of fresh air to Scottish politics and offers an alternative to the nationalist narrative of the SNP.

Davidson is engaged to her Irish partner Jen Wilson and is an outspoken advocate for gay marriage.

A unionist politician who boasts kick-boxing skills, Davidson backs a "soft" Brexit in opposition to May's "hard" approach to Britain's EU divorce.

"When I was growing up the two most important people in the country were the Queen and Margaret Thatcher, so I thought women could do anything," Davidson told AFP.

Arlene Foster

The first woman to lead the Northern Ireland executive in January 2016, Foster saw her Democratic Unionist Party win 10 seats in Thursday's vote.

Despite being head of a small unionist party, Foster will play an instrumental role in Westminster as May has sought the DUP's help to tip the Conservatives into a parliamentary majority.

The two parties have some common ground and Foster is pro-Brexit, although cautious of preventing a hard border being imposed between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Foster's politics has been influenced by her experiences during the Northern Ireland conflict.

Her father was shot in the head but survived an attack by Irish Republican Army paramilitaries when she was just eight years old and her school bus was blown up when she was 16.

Reflecting on her role as a woman in politics, Foster said self-belief was vital.

"It's a bit like breaking down old conservative barriers -- one has to believe in oneself, and your ability to move forward," she told AFP.
