… 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. …

British PM delays Brexit deal vote but EU warns no renegotiation

Yahoo – AFP, Alice RITCHIE, Dave CLARK in Brussels, 10 December 2018

May said she would delay Tuesday's vote, admitting her Brexit deal
would be rejected in it

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday postponed a parliamentary vote on her Brexit deal to avoid a crushing defeat, saying she would return to Brussels for further talks -- but the EU warned it would not reopen the agreement.

In an emergency statement to the House of Commons, May conceded that the draft divorce agreement she struck with the European Union last month faced defeat by a "significant margin" of MPs on Tuesday.

She said she had "no doubt this deal is the right one" but promised to seek "further assurances" over a controversial backstop clause relating to Northern Ireland.

May said the date for a new vote depended on talks with other EU leaders, which officials said could begin with visits to European capitals starting on Tuesday.

In response, EU President Donald Tusk called a special summit of the other 27 leaders to discuss Brexit on Thursday, at the start of a two-day Brussels meeting that May is due to attend.

But he warned: "We will not renegotiate the deal, including the backstop, but we are ready to discuss how to facilitate UK ratification."

The delay in signing off the deal, just months before Britain ends its four-decade membership of the bloc with Brexit on March 29, sent the pound plunging to an 18-month low.

Sterling sank by more than 1.5 percent to $1.2527, the lowest since April 2017.

"This is yet another blow for companies desperate for clarity," said Carolyn Fairbairn, head of big business lobby the Confederation of British Industry.

Both May and Tusk also said they would look at stepping up preparations for the potentially catastrophic possibility that Britain leaves the EU without any new legal arrangements in place.

"For as long as we fail to agree a deal, the risk of an accidental no deal increases," May told MPs, while Tusk said the issue would be discussed on Thursday.

Deliver Brexit?

May faced a huge rebellion of her own Conservative MPs over the deal, primarily over the backstop clause designed to keep open Britain's border with Ireland.

The embattled leader said Monday she would relay concerns to EU leaders, but also warned the backstop was one of several "inescapable" compromises needed to get a deal.

May said she would continue talks with EU leaders to rescue the deal

"If you take a step back it is clear that this House faces a much more fundamental question -- does this House want to deliver Brexit?" she said.

Earlier, the European Court of Justice gave hope to a small but growing number of MPs seeking a second referendum on Brexit, ruling that Britain was free to halt withdrawal from the bloc unilaterally.

Cosmetic wording

May spoke at the weekend to Tusk, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, raising speculation they offered some hope of further concessions.

"We'll have to see what kind of assurances May wants. If the Brexit hardliners would be satisfied with some cosmetic wording, I don't know," a European diplomat said.

However, EU leaders have repeatedly warned they have no appetite to reopen a divorce deal forged through months of tortuous negotiations.

"It took over a year and a half to negotiate, it has the support of 28 governments, and it's not possible to re-open any aspect of that agreement without re-opening all aspects of it," Varadkar said on Monday.

Some EU officials have however mentioned the possibility of changes to the accompanying political declaration on future trade ties.

Charles Grant of the Centre for European Reform (CER) suggested May would only secure "very minor changes to her deal".

"The substance of the Irish backstop will be unaltered. So I very much doubt that parliament will vote for the deal, when it has the chance to do so," he said.

'Govern or quit'

Opposition MPs shouted "resign" at May during her statement, and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the decision to delay the vote was "desperate".

"The government has lost control of events and is in complete disarray," he said.

Labour had threatened to call a confidence motion in May if she lost Tuesday's vote, but pulled this after her Northern Irish allies pledged to support her.

But she still risks a challenge from within her own party from eurosceptics who argue her Brexit deal would leave Britain tied for years to the EU rules.

"This is not governing, it risks putting Jeremy Corbyn into government by failing to deliver Brexit," said leading Conservative rebel Jacob Rees-Mogg, who led a failed attempt to unseat May last month.

"We cannot continue like this. The prime minister must either govern or quit."
