… 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. …

Britain faces furore over Snowden-linked detention

LONDON — British authorities faced a furore Monday after they held the partner of a journalist who worked with Edward Snowden to expose US mass surveillance programmes for almost nine hours under anti-terror laws.

David Miranda -- the Brazilian partner of Glenn Greenwald, an American journalist with Britain's Guardian newspaper -- was held on Sunday as he passed through London's Heathrow Airport on his way home to Rio de Janeiro from Berlin.

A furious Greenwald said British authorities had "zero suspicion" that Miranda was involved in terrorism and instead spent hours questioning him about the Guardian's reporting on the activities of the US National Security Agency, which has enraged Washington.

"This was obviously designed to send a message of intimidation to those of us working journalistically on reporting on the NSA and its British counterpart, the GCHQ" or Government Communications Headquarters, Greenwald wrote in the Guardian.

"They completely abused their own terrorism law for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

He added: "The last thing it will do is intimidate or deter us in any way from doing our job as journalists."

Miranda, 28, had been refused access to a lawyer and officials had taken his laptop and mobile phone, Greenwald said.

The British interior ministry did not immediately comment on Miranda's detention, saying it was a police matter.

But authorities were under increasing pressure to explain why he had been held, with Brazil expressing "grave concern" that one of its citizens had been apparently "held incommunicado" at the airport.

Keith Vaz, chairman of the British parliament's home affairs committee, said Miranda's detention was "extraordinary" and he was writing to the police to demand an explanation.

"What is extraordinary is they knew he was the partner (of Greenwald) and therefore it is clear not only people who are directly involved are being sought but also the partners of those involved," he told BBC radio.

Vaz said it was possible the authorities had "a perfectly reasonable explanation", but added: "If we are going to use the (Terrorism) Act in this way, for those issues that are not related to terrorism, then at least we need to know."

London's Metropolitan Police confirmed that a 28-year-old man was detained at Heathrow Airport under anti-terrorism legislation.

"He was not arrested. He was subsequently released," a spokesman said.

Brazil's foreign ministry said its embassy in London had contacted British officials prior to Miranda's release and that Brazil would also be seeking an explanation from US officials.

"This measure is without justification since it involves an individual against whom there are no charges that can justify the use of that legislation," the ministry said in a statement.

Brazil expects there to be no repeat of the incident, it warned.

Greenwald, a well-known journalist in the US, analysed and published information on documents released by former US security contractor Snowden revealing huge electronic surveillance operations by the NSA.

Snowden has been granted asylum in Russia after spending five weeks in limbo at a Moscow airport attempting to avoid extradition to the US. He is wanted by Washington on espionage charges.

The Guardian said it was "dismayed" by Miranda's detention and was seeking "clarification" from the British authorities.

Greenwald said Miranda was on his way to the couple's home in Rio de Janeiro when he was detained. He had stayed in Berlin with Laura Poitras, a US filmmaker who worked on the NSA stories.

Greenwald said he had received a phone call regarding Miranda from someone identifying himself as a security official at Heathrow.

"The security official told me that they had the right to detain him for up to nine hours in order to question him, at which point they could either arrest and charge him or ask a court to extend the question time," he wrote.

"The official -- who refused to give his name but would only identify himself by his number: 203654 -- said David was not allowed to have a lawyer present, nor would they allow me to talk to him."

Amnesty International said Miranda was "clearly a victim of unwarranted revenge tactics".

Miranda's detention sparked a furore on Twitter, with British actor and campaigner Stephen Fry writing: "Holy CRAP -- what is our government up to?"
