… 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. …

Obama boost for Greece as finance minister visits London

London (AFP) - Greece's new government won support from US President Barack Obama as it seeks to build international support for a renegotiation of its 240-billion-euro ($270-billion) bailout despite German opposition.

As part of a European charm offensive, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis met his British counterpart George Osborne in London on Monday while Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras held talks in Cyprus.

Greek stocks, which have been volatile since the January 25 election won by Tsipras's hard left Syriza party, jumped over five percent after Obama warned that imposing austerity on Greece could backfire on its creditors.

"You cannot keep on squeezing countries that are in the midst of depression," Obama told CNN.

"At some point, there has to be a growth strategy in order for them to pay off their debts to eliminate some of their deficits."

Obama said the Greek economy was in "dire need" of reform but warned that drastic changes were tough to implement in a struggling economy.

In Cyprus on his first foreign trip since coming to power, Tsipras said he had not expected so much international support for his campaign and stressed that Greece wanted a wider debate about debt for "all the peoples of Europe".

Tsipras will travel to debt-laden Italy on Tuesday and on to Brussels on Wednesday for talks with European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker.

Notably absent on the current itinerary is a visit to European paymaster Germany, which has refused to consider any debt relief.

Varoufakis was meeting Osborne after a stop Sunday in Paris where he said he wanted to reach a new debt deal within months to end a loan "addiction", which was loading more liabilities on Greece's economy.

He said Greece did not want a promised loan tranche of 7.2 billion euros from the so-called "troika" of creditors, the International Monetary Fund, European Union and European Central Bank (ECB).

"It's not that we don't need the money; we're desperate," he said at a press conference with French counterpart Michel Sapin. "What this government is all about is ending this addiction."

Although not in the eurozone, Britain is in the IMF and Varoufakis is looking for as many allies as possible for any future negotiations within the EU.

Varoufakis is also expected to meet key figures from London's vital financial sector, which is home to many lenders exposed to Greek debt.

Greece's new anti-austerity government has refused to work with international inspectors charged with overseeing its painful fiscal reforms, instead seeking direct contacts with creditors and governments.

German meeting 'essential'

Setting out a timetable for a revised debt deal, which has met strong German opposition, Varoufakis said if Athens had until the end of the month to come up with detailed proposals, it could reach an agreement with international partners six weeks later.

Tsipras has tried to calm nerves by saying he did not intend to renege on commitments to the EU and IMF.

"It has never been our intention to act unilaterally on Greek debt," Tsipras said in a statement to Bloomberg News.

But the country "needs time to breathe and create our own medium-term recovery programme."

Varoufakis told reporters in Paris that he also wanted to visit Germany, which has shouldered the bulk of Greece's loans.

"It is essential that we meet," Varoufakis said, referring to German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble.

But the German finance ministry said it had not yet received an official request for such a visit.

In Paris, Varoufakis also met EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici -- the first talks between the new government and the European Union's executive arm.

Merkel holds firm

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday ruled out fresh debt relief, telling the Hamburger Abendblatt daily: "There has already been voluntary debt forgiveness by private creditors, banks have already slashed billions from Greece's debt."

Greece's Deputy Prime Minister Giannis Dragasakis insisted late Sunday that Athens could still reach a "political agreement" with the ECB, satisfying the central bank's demands for reform and maintaining liquidity to Greece's hard-hit lenders.

Despite a restructuring in 2012, Greece is still lumbered with debts of more than 315 billion euros, upwards of 175 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) -- an EU record.

But in its first week in power, the government scrapped the privatisation of Greece's two main ports and the state power company and announced a major increase in the minimum wage.

Syriza's stunning election success sent shockwaves through Europe and has encouraged other anti-austerity parties.

At least 100,000 people took to the streets of Madrid on Saturday in support of the Spanish party Podemos, which has surged in polls ahead of elections late this year.
