… 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. …

Belgrade Gay Pride march expresses solidarity with migrants

Belgrade (AFP) - Belgrade's Gay Pride parade, only the second since a ban was lifted, took place under tight security but without major incident Sunday, with participants urging European solidarity with the wave of migrants crossing the Balkans to reach the European Union.

"Europe open your gates," read a huge black banner with pink letters held by activists next to a giant rainbow-coloured flag waved at the front of several hundred participants.

"We, the entire LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community, stand by our friends in trouble, by migrants who come every day and, like us, only ask for their right to be happy," prominent playwright Biljana Srbljanovic told the crowd.

Several other speakers also called for solidarity with the migrants and refugees, mostly from the Middle East, who have been passing through Belgrade for months on their wat from Turkey and Greece and on towards northern Europe.

A year ago Serbian gays and lesbians staged their first incident-free Belgrade Pride Parade in four years, in what was seen as a test of the EU hopeful's commitment to protecting minority rights.

At Belgrade's first-ever Gay Pride march in 2010, hardline nationalists attacked participants and clashed with police, wounding 150 people and prompting officials to ban the parade for the next three years.

Sunday's event passed without incidents amid tight security as thousands of riot police officers were deployed in the city centre.

Warmer reception

Several armoured vehicles, some with water cannons, were parked at main crossings in the downtown area where roads were closed to traffic from early morning.

Organisers said there had been significantly fewer threats of disruption by far-right groups than in previous years. It was such threats which had forced the government to cancel such events after 2010.

However, more than 50 people were arrested over alleged plans to attack participants in the gay pride parade, local media reported.

Police was not able immediately to confirm the figure to AFP.

Organisers hailed what they called a warmer reception for this year's LGBT event.

The two-kilometre (1.5 miles) long march through the city centre, from the seat of the Serbian government to Belgrade City Hall, was also attended by several leading Serbian officials, including Belgrade mayor Sinisa Mali and Jadranka Joksimovic, the minister in charge of Serbia's bid for EU membership.

Belgrade has been under pressure to improve protection for minorities including the LGBT community since starting accession talks with the European Union last year.

"I am glad that a parade is now regularly held, but this enormous police security shows that the way LGBT community is seen and treated by the majority in Serbia has not changed. There is a long way ahead," Ivana Malisic, a 34-year participant, told AFP, pointing to the cordons of anti-riot police that surrounded the marchers.

Homophobia is widespread in Serbian and other conservative Balkan societies.

Among the crowd marching on Sunday were fellow LGBT activists from the United States, Britain, Sweden and elsewhere.

"I came from Albania, where I serve as a volunteer in the Peace Corps, to offer my support, to give them a voice and to help their voice be heard," Jon Breen told AFP.
