… 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. …

Germany calls for global abolition of death penalty on world awareness day

The German government has urged countries around the globe to bring an end to capital punishment. The call coincides with the thirteenth "World Day Against the Death Penalty."

Deutsche Welle, 10 Oct 2015

German commissioner for Human Rights Policy and Humanitarian Aid, Christoph Strässer (SPD), said on Saturday that the punishment has no place in the 21st century.

"I encourage all people who work against this cruel and inhuman punishment, to continue their efforts continue," Strässer said.

"There is a misconception that the death penalty is good to fight crime," he commented, adding that despite a general move away from capital punishment around the world, the number of execution cases in China, Iran, Saudia Arabia and Iraq had recently been on the increase.

Amnesty International estimates that in the first half of this year alone, almost 700 people were sentenced to death in Iran . According to the human rights organization, there were executions in 22 countries last year.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier is due to visit Saudi Arabia and Iran later in October.

No excuse for execution

Strässer also noted on Saturday that many cases of execution follow "questionable verdicts" in which the confessions have been given as a result of torture.

It is "terrifying" he said, how often such defendants are offered no legal representation or a translator.

"These states, which can't ensure consistent enforcement, simply accept misjudgments," Strässer said, before rejecting any argument that the death penalty will help in the fight against terrorism.

"Violations of human rights in a social climate actually promote instability," he said.
The thirteenth "World Day Against the Death Penalty" on Saturday, aims this year to raise awareness specifically about the application of capital punishment for drug-related crimes.
