… 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. …

China outstripped Britain to become the second largest source of tourists to Sri Lanka, with tourist figures growing by 85% in February when compared with the previous year, according to the latest data released on Tuesday.

Chinese tourist arrivals expanded to 39,160 in 2015, compared to 21,098 in February 2014. The latest data released by the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Board (SLTDB) showed Chinese arrivals comfortably outstripping 28,622 British tourists visits in the same month.

Overall, the month recorded 165,541 tourists arriving in the country, compared to the 141,878 that arrived in February 2014.

"In the first two months of this year, 321,787 tourists visited the island, an increase of 11.6% compared to the same period in 2014," the SLTDB said.

Chinese tourist arrivals to Sri Lanka kicked off the New Year with 8.9% growth in January.

In the first month of 2015, Chinese arrivals grew to 11,735 from 10,779 in January 2014.

Chinese tourists to the tiny island in the Indian Ocean have risen rapidly over the last two years, with 2014 ending at an all-time high. In 2013, only 54,288 Chinese tourists visited Sri Lanka, but the numbers ballooned to 128,166 by the end of last year, growing an impressive 136.1%, according to the SLTDB.

Only tourists from India outstrip numbers from China. China already has the highest growth rate of any country.

Since the end of a three decade war in 2009, Sri Lanka's tourist arrivals have boomed, reaching over 1.5 million last year and attracting earnings of US$1.7 billion, according to the central bank.

The tropical island is aiming to attract 2.5 million arrivals by 2016, buoyed by increasing numbers from China.
