… 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. …

Nuclear Envoys From Two Koreas Meet in Bali

Nuclear envoys from North and South Korea held rare talks on Friday in the Indonesian island of Bali amid international efforts to revive stalled six-nation negotiations on the North’s atomic weaponry.

The meeting between South Korea’s Wi Sung-lac and his counterpart Ri Yong-ho was the first-ever North-South meeting on nuclear issues outside the six-party format, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said.

The North has previously refused to discuss its nuclear program with the South alone, saying it is intended as a deterrent against the United States.

Six-party host China had been pushing for an inter-Korean nuclear meeting, followed by US-North Korean talks, to pave the way for a resumption of the full dialogue.

Friday’s meeting came after more than a year of high tensions on the Korean peninsula, after Seoul accused its neighbor of two border attacks which killed 50 people in 2010.

Depending on the outcome of Friday’s talks, the South’s Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan could meet his North Korean counterpart Pak Ui-chun, probably on Saturday, the spokeswoman said.

The last round of six-party talks ended without agreement in December 2008. The North formally abandoned them in April 2009 and staged its second nuclear test a month later.

It has expressed conditional willingness to return to the forum, which groups China, the two Koreas, the United States, Japan and Russia.

But the United States, its ally South Korea and Japan say the North should first mend relations with its neighbor.

Seoul accuses Pyongyang of torpedoing a South Korean warship in March 2010 with the loss of 46 lives.

The North denies involvement. But it killed four people in a bombardment of a South Korean island last November, briefly sparking fears of war.

The South had demanded the North take responsibility for those attacks before any major dialogue. But in an attempt to break the diplomatic impasse, it said this condition would not apply to nuclear negotiations.

“It’s been a long time since I met you in London,” Wi told Ri as they started the talks on the sidelines of an Asian security conference, Yonhap news agency reported.

He was recalling their meeting at a security conference in Britain six years ago. “Yes, how nice to see you again,” Ri responded.

All six countries are attending the Asean Regional Forum this week.

Despite Friday’s meeting, the nominee for next US ambassador to South Korea voiced doubt on Thursday that the North was ready to return to serious negotiations.

“We’re not convinced that they really are ready to return to serious diplomacy and negotiations,” Sung Kim, who is now the special envoy to the moribund six-nation talks, told a Senate hearing on his nomination.

“This is why I think Seoul and Washington have both been very cautious in just rushing back to the negotiating table.

“In light of what has happened in the past two years, I think the North Koreans need to prove that they will in fact be a serious partner when the negotiations resume,” Sung Kim added.
