… 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. …

Vatican officially recognizes state of Palestine in a new treaty

The Vatican has confirmed it will officially recognize Palestine as a state. Around 70 percent of United Nations members now recognize the disputed region.

Deutsche Welle, 13 May 2015

Pope Francis during his weekly general audience in St. Peter square at the Vatican.
The as yet unsigned treaty was finalized on Wednesday, and states that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic relations from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine.

The agreement "aims to enhance the life and activities of the Catholic Church and its recognition at the judicial level," the Vatican's foreign minister, Monsignor Antoine Camilleri, said, referring to the church's activities in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

The world's smallest country has been unofficially referring to the "state of Palestine" for at least a year, with Pope Francis addressing Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas as "president of the state of Palestine" during a visit in May 2014.

Francis also made sure to fly from Amman to the West Bank city of Bethlehem, before continuing to Tel Aviv in Israel, to ensure his Holy Land pilgrimage was a "three-state" visit.

The Vatican's foreign minister said the change was in line with the Holy See's position.
Spokesman Reverend Federico Lombardi confirmed it was "a recognition that the state exists."

He said Abbas would be granted an audience with the pope when he visits the nation on Saturday.

Another step forward

The campaign to recognize Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank as an official state has been stepped up since peace talks with Israel stalled last year.

In December 2014, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas signed papers to join the International Criminal Court, which could give them the power to bring Israel to court over alleged war crimes that occurred during the most recent conflict in August.

It is already a non-member observer state of the United Nations.

Meanwhile, Christians are preparing for the canonization of two 19th century nuns, Mariam Bawardy and Marie Alphonsine Ghattas, who will be the people to be named saint from Ottoman-ruled Palestine.

The Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to attend the ceremony at the Vatican on May 17.

".. Everything that has transpired during these years has been realized potential. That is to say that we see the potentials of what you might do, and report on that and only that. Much of what we see now is realized quickly. When we told you in 2012 there would be a new pope, 13 months later it happened. This was not prophecy, but rather a potential. We saw it coming because we have the overview and we knew of the anxiety of the existing pope, the health of the man, and we also knew of the potentials of a South American pope to come forward. All of these things should be a "connect the dots" for you. I come yet again, not with prophecy, but with information given with a congratulatory attitude of potential. ..."
