… 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. …

Poland's Donald Tusk takes over as EU Council president

Poland's Donald Tusk has taken over as European Council president, charged with convening summits of the bloc's 28 leaders. The former Polish premier has promised "ruthless determination" to fix Europe's economy.

Deutsche Welle, 1 Dec 2014


Tusk, a centrist, was handed a summit bell by Belgium's Herman Van Rompuy on Monday, becoming the first person from the former East bloc to head the European Council.

As council president, Tusk completes the EU's new trio - alongside Luxembourg's Jean Claude Juncker, who is chief of the European Commission, and the foreign affairs coordinator, Federica Mogherini of Italy.

Van Rompuy described Tusk as the "favorite son of Poland" with an "open heart," adding that he was now at the helm of the EU's "most important institution."

Tusk, who studied history and follows football keenly, began his political career in the 1980s as part of Poland's Solidarity union movement, whose protests contributed to the collapse of Soviet-style communism.

He was twice elected prime minister in Poland's post-communist era. He led Poland's center-right Civic Platform from 2001 for 13 years.

EU facing threats

At a handover ceremony in Brussels, Tusk said he would focus on protecting Europe's fundamental values from threats "coming from outside and inside."

"Today not only are euroskeptics questioning the EU's values, we have also enemies," he said, referring to anti-EU parties and presumably Russia,although he did not elaborate.

Poland, like Baltic nations such as Latvia, fear Russian designs on former Soviet countries following Moscow's recent military intervention in Ukraine.

"Relations between Europe and the United States are the backbone of the community of democracies," he said, adding that Europe had to support those neighbors "who share our values."

"The year ahead will be crucial," he added.

Tackle economic crisis

The 57-year-old vowed to help rescue Europe's economy from near deflation and high unemployment in member nations such as Spain.

"We need ruthless determination to end the economic crisis," he said.

He also called for the completion of the European monetary union. Poland does not yet use the euro single currency.

When still Polish premier, Tusk promoted Poland's integration into the EU, unlike his predecessor Jaroslaw Kaczynski.

Relations with Germany, once wrought by World War II, have also warmed. Tusk and Chancellor Angela Merkel are said to have a good working relationship.

Since being picked as prospective council president by EU leaders in August, Tusk has been brushing up his English - a skill needed to reach summit consensus.
