… 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. …

Greece has France's support in efforts to negotiate new bailout deal

France has pledged to help Greece's new government as it seeks a better deal with its international creditors. The pledge came during a meeting between Greece's new finance minister and his French counterpart in Paris.

Deutsche Welle, 1 Feb 2015

French Finance Minister Michel Sapin (pictured above right) told a joint news conference with visiting Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis (above left) on Sunday that France's Socialist government was prepared to help the new left-wing-led government in Athens to negotiate a new agreement with its trio of creditors, the European Central Bank, the European Commission, and the International Monetary Fund.

"France is more than prepared to support Greece," Sapin said, before calling for a "new contract between Greece and its partners."

Sapin also expressed understanding for the new Syriza-led government's concern about the level of debt Greece had taken on, as part of its 240-billion euro ($270 billion) bailout.

"Yes, debt is an issue, among others," Sapin conceded to reporters.

For his part, Varoufakis insisted that Greece did want to pay back what it owes its creditors, playing down previous talk from the new Greek prime minister in particular about seeking debt-forgiveness from the troika.

Such talk had sparked serious concerns in many European countries, so much so that German Chancellor Angela Merkel ruled out the possibility in a interview published in the Saturday edition of the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper.

In Paris, on Sunday, Varoufakis reiterated that Athens wanted a deal with new terms, which would allow Greece's economy to grow. He also repeated a statement first reported on Friday in which he ruled out negotiating this deal with the troika as pointless, as they had imposed the strict terms of the current agreement.

Going 'cold turkey'

Varoufakis also ruled out accepting a new tranche of debt from the current bailout, arguing that Greece had become addicted to indebtedness and that it was time to go "cold turkey."

"We were elected to put an end to the addiction," he said.

Varoufakis said he was eager to get a new deal done "by the end of May."

His meeting with Sapin was just the start of his part of a Greek charm offensive that he is spearheading along with new Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, aimed at easing the tension with other EU member states and the European Commission and ECB after the rhetoric heated up over the past few days. Varoufakis' next stop is London on Monday, before heading to Rome on Tuesday.

Conspicuously absent from his current itinerary is Berlin, the capital of the EU's biggest economy, as well as Frankfurt, the seat of the ECB. "I'm really eager to go to Berlin... Madrid, Frankfurt," he stressed, noting that the diplomatic efforts were just starting.

Tsipras calls Juncker

Prime Minister Tsipras began his part of the charm offensive using the telephone on the weekend.

Sources close to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Sunday that Tsipras called Juncker on Saturday seeking direct talks. According to the DPA news agency, the discussion "ran smoothly" and ended with an agreement to hold talks on Wednesday - when Tsipras is also to meet with President Francois Hollande in Paris.
