… 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. …

US Stays Out of Row on Indonesian Executions

Washington. The United States, where the death penalty is still carried out, on Wednesday steered clear of a storm of global protest triggered by Indonesia’s execution of seven foreign drug traffickers.

The seven — two from Australia, one from Brazil and four from Africa — were shot along with one Indonesian, despite strident foreign appeals and pleas from family members.

“We don’t have much to say on this, other than we’re aware that they have executed eight [sic] foreign citizens convicted of drug trafficking,” State Department acting spokeswoman Marie Harf said. “As we’ve said, none of these eight were Americans.”

She spoke as the US Supreme Court heard arguments on Wednesday about lethal injections, after states began using alternative drugs — believed by some to cause pain and suffering — to carry out the executions.

A total of 18 out of 50 US states and the US capital Washington have abolished the death penalty, and the number of executions has fallen in recent years since the capital punishment was reinstated in 1976.

Of the 1,407 executions performed in the US since 1976, 13 have taken place so far this year.

Australia has withdrawn its ambassador to Jakarta in protest at the execution of their nationals, and the European Union has expressed dismay.

In Massachusetts meanwhile, defense lawyers are trying to save Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from a federal death sentence after he was convicted of carrying out the 2013 Boston bombings in which three people were killed.

US attorneys have argued that the 21-year-old of Chechen descent deserves to die for one of the bloodiest attacks on US soil since the 2001 9/11 attacks.
