… 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. …

Pope meets relatives of Pakistani Christian on death row

Pope Francis on Wednesday met the husband and daughter of Asia Bibi, a Pakistani Christian woman sentenced to death over blasphemy charges, the Vatican said.

"I pray for Asia, for you and for all Christians who are suffering," Francis told Bibi's husband Ashiq Masiq and their 15-year-old daughter, according to the Vatican Insider website.

Mother of five Bibi has been on death row since a row broke out in 2009 with a group of women she was working with in a field.

They accused her of insulting the Muslim Prophet Mohammed, a charge she denies. Soon afterwards, she was jailed and sentenced by a court to death by hanging.

Bibi's death sentence was confirmed in October 2014 by the Lahore High Court.

Helped by an NGO to travel to Europe, Bibi's husband and daughter are seeking to rally support for their cause. They want European officials to take up the issue with Islamabad.

Last November, the EU parliament called on Pakistan to overhaul its blasphemy laws with a view to repealing them, saying they were being used to target Christians and other minorities.

Bibi is waiting for the final ruling of the Supreme Court.

Her case is set to go back to trial in May.

During the recent Easter celebration, Bibi asked Pope Francis to pray for her. Several months earlier, she had sent him a letter.

Pope Francis is widely seen as a champion of the poor and marginalised.

In 2010, his predecessor Benedict XVI had publicly called for Bibi's release.

While Francis has not made such a plea, he has called for the end of persecution of Christians in Pakistan and everywhere else.

Blasphemy is a hugely sensitive issue in Pakistan, with even unproven allegations often prompting mob violence.
