… 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. …

New PM Yatsenyuk, Ukraine's unlikely firebrand

Google – AFP, Max Delany (AFP), 26 February 2014

Kiev — Arseniy Yatsenyuk, a protest leader who was nominated Wednesday to head Ukraine's new interim government, is a pro-EU former foreign minister who took a hands-on role in street protests that rocked the country.

The bespectacled 39-year-old has been handed the tough responsibility of dragging the former Soviet republic back from the brink of collapse -- a task he himself branded "political suicide" earlier this week as Ukraine stands on the verge of default and faces separatist tensions.

While the former lawyer and banker's considerable economic experience in the past may prove a boon for the position, he lacks the image of a tough politician and his support among the more militant wing of the protesters is uncertain.

But he repeatedly took a strident line in booming speeches on Independence Square in Kiev, the epicentre of the protest movement, warning ousted president Viktor Yanukovych in one grimly prescient statement that protesters would be willing to take "a bullet to the head" if that was what it took to unseat the leader.

- Fighting talk, shrewd political operator -

The Ukrainian news weekly Focus said Yatsenyuk had tried to shed his image of an "intellectual banker" and had used the daily rallies as a form of campaign platform for the role of chief opposition leader.

He was also seen by some as a rival as much as an ally of fellow opposition leader and former world boxing champion Vitali Klitschko, who currently enjoys greater popularity among potential voters and said Tuesday he would run for president.

For all the fighting talk in front of the crowd, Yatsenyuk is also a skilled behind-the-scenes political operator who has held top posts under previous governments including economy minister and deputy governor of the central bank.

A former speaker of Ukraine's parliament, he was also a fourth-place runner-up in the 2010 presidential election won by Yanukovych -- in which he garnered just seven percent of the vote.

Yatsenyuk led negotiations for the former Soviet republic's membership of the World Trade Organisation and has shown particular attention to the country's fraught economic situation.

In January he turned down a compromise deal from Yanukovych that would have seen him take up the post of prime minister, telling the then embattled president that protesters were "finishing what they started".

He was one of three opposition leaders who eventually signed a short-lived agreement with Yanukovych on Friday to stop the bloodshed -- a deal that stirred anger among many protesters and quickly collapsed when the president became a fugitive.

Since Yanukovych's ouster Yatsenyuk has been a mainstay in the parliament now dominated by those who backed the protests and on Tuesday was a major proponent of a vote to send the fugitive leader to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to answer for last week's bloodbath in Kiev.

That same day, he warned that those who accept to serve in the interim government "will save the country, but will also commit complete political suicide" due to the difficulties ahead.

- Political prodigy from opposition stronghold -

Yatsenyuk has called for European Union membership of Ukraine and has said he wants to root out deep-seated corruption in the country.

His appointment makes him one of Europe's youngest government chiefs, a post made more powerful since the parliament voted to return to a 2004 constitution that hands a raft of powers from the president to the premier.

However the position is just a temporary one until presidential elections scheduled for May 25.

Originally from Chernivtsi in western Ukraine, a major stronghold for the opposition, Yatsenyuk began his political career in 2001 as economy minister of the pro-Russia Crimean peninsula.

Following the "Orange Revolution" in 2004, Yatsenyuk began pushing a more pro-Western agenda and became a close ally of Yulia Tymoshenko, a former prime minister who was subsequently jailed for abuse of power, but was dramatically freed over the weekend.

Then president Viktor Yushchenko made him foreign minister in 2007 and Yatsenyuk became a compromise figure when a personal conflict between Yushchenko and Tymoshenko began to spiral out of control.

Unusually for government officials in post-Soviet countries, Yatsenyuk travelled on regular passenger flights while he was minister.

Yatsenyuk and Tymoshenko themselves later had a bitter falling-out, although they have since reconciled and he became the parliamentary leader of the party she founded.

He was born on May 22, 1974, into a family of professors at Chernivtsi University.

While still at university in the 1990s he set up a student law firm and later worked at Aval bank in Kiev.

He is married and has two daughters.
