… 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. …

Swiss complete tax-dodge payments to Britain, Austria

France24 – AFP, 1 Sep 2014

Switzerland said Monday that it had completed a programme to pay Britain and
 Austria hundreds of millions of euros in settlements for past tax-dodging by their
 citizensSwitzerland said Monday that it had completed a programme to pay Britain
 and Austria hundreds of millions of euros in settlements for past tax-dodging
by their citizens

Switzerland said Monday that it had completed a programme to pay Britain and Austria hundreds of millions of euros in settlements for past tax-dodging by their citizens.

In a statement, the Swiss tax administration said that London had received a total of 469.5 million pounds (593 million euros, $779 million), and Vienna, 738.3 million euros over the course of the year-long programme.

With the financial crisis having put Switzerland under mounting pressure to lift its trademark banking secrecy laws, the country opted to give ground in some areas in order to defend the overall principle of privacy.

Under bilateral deals with Britain and Austria, Switzerland offered two options to people who failed to declare in their home countries money placed in Swiss banks.

They could either turn themselves in to their homeland's revenue services, or have their accounts taxed by the Swiss, who then transferred the funds without naming the clients.

It was under the latter system that Switzerland handed over the sums in tranches between July 2013 and August 2014.

The completion of the payments means that the British and Austrian clients' funds are now considered clean by their homelands' tax authorities and Switzerland.

The total amount of funds regularised in this way in Switzerland now stands at 10.4 billion pounds and 5.9 billion euros.

In addition to the deal on securing back taxes, Switzerland has agreed to collect regular taxes from British, Austrian and other European Union account holders, then transfer the money to the individual's homeland anonymously.

Switzerland, which is not a member of the European Union, had also negotiated a deal with Germany to clear past tax-dodging, but it was shot down by German lawmakers.

France, meanwhile, has refused to make a similar deal with Switzerland, preferring to oblige French tax-dodgers with cash in Switzerland to use its own national system.

The deals with Britain and Austria could become redundant from 2017, when Switzerland has pledged to apply rules on the automatic exchange of tax information.

Damning report condemns health authority conflicts of interest

DutchNews.nl, Monday 01 September 2014

(NOS/ANP)
A damning leaked report has called for a major shake up in the way the Dutch health authority operates, saying the current set up is vulnerable to conflicts of interest and government interference.

The report comes from an independent commission set up to investigate the way the NZa works following revelations about the suicide of a whistleblower and other scandals, the NRC and Nos television said on Monday.

The commission says the NZa's main roles - drawing up rules to cover health service treatment, and regulating hospitals and insurance companies - should be separated to avoid potential conflicts.

The NZa is not only responsible for deciding which drugs and treatment should be covered by the mandatory health insurance, but for supervising the advance of the private sector into the system.

Supervisory board

The NZA should also have a supervisory board and its two-man management board stretched to three. The two board members resigned in June after the NRC published a string of revelations about their expenses and hospitality agreements with insurance companies and drugs companies.

The organisation's personnel policy needs a complete overhaul as does the relationship between it and the health ministry, the report says.

Health ministry officials are also criticised for interfering in the NZa's work, which, the report says, has given rise to claims of 'unjustified interference'.

'There should be no interference from the minister in individual cases,' the report states.

Whistleblower

The report is particularly scathing about the treatment meted out to whistleblower Arthur Gotlieb, who had compiled an extensive dossier on privacy and other failures at the NZa.

It was only after Gotlieb killed himself that the NZa began an investigation into his claims.

The report, commissioned by health minister Edith Schippers is due to be formally presented on Tuesday.

MPs polled by Nos television said they were not surprised by the report's criticism and have called for an emergency debate with the minister.

Socialist MP Renske Leijten said the fact that there is, in effect, no independent healthcare regulator in the Netherlands puts all decisions taken about the care system 'in a dubious light'.


Health regulator failed to secure IT system, ignored whistleblower


“…I'm in Canada and I know it, but I will tell those listening and reading in the American audience the following: Get ready! Because there are some institutions that are yet to fall, ones that don't have integrity and that could never be helped with a bail out. Again, we tell you the biggest one is big pharma, and we told you that before. It's inevitable. If not now, then in a decade. It's inevitable and they will fight to stay alive and they will not be crossing the bridge. For on the other side of the bridge is a new way, not just for medicine but for care. Paradigms that have not yet been thought of, which don't represent any system that currently exists, will be created and developed by young minds who have concepts that the seniors don't know about. Things that don't have integrity today will fall over tomorrow. Just get ready. It's all part of what's on the other side of the bridge. And the old energy won't like it, and they will object. …”

Animal rights group criticises Dutch pension funds on factory farms

DutchNews.nl, Monday 01 September 2014

(NU.nl,/ANP)
The massive Dutch civil service pension fund ABP is one of several investing millions of euros in factory farms in China, Thailand and Brazil, according to animal welfare campaign group Wakker Dier.

Research carried out on behalf of the charity shows ABP and eight other pension funds are investing in the production of intensively-reared chicken and pigs as well as battery eggs.

It is ‘absurd’ that the Dutch government bans Dutch factory farms from keeping hens in bare cages but that civil servants’ pensions are being invested in the same practice abroad, Wakker Dier says.

The organisation wants home affairs minister Ronald Plasterk to make public more information about APB’s investments. He should also ensure the pension giant – one of the biggest in the world – does not invest in activities abroad which would be illegal in the Netherlands, Wakker Dier said.

Rebuttal

ABP said in a reaction it did not agree with Wakker Dier’s conclusions and that sustainability is a key part of its investment strategy.

‘Wakker Dier measures according to Wakker Dier’s standards,’ spokesman Harmen Geers told ANP. ‘We use independent research groups which come to different conclusions. We check if companies meet national and international rules.’

ABP has a total of €14m invested in battery hen farms, Heers said. He also disagreed that the fund is not transparent about its investments.

Last week, ABP was criticised for its investments in Israel.

Germany to arm Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State in Iraq

The German government has announced it will supply 70 million euros worth of high-end military equipment to Kurdish forces fighting Islamic State militants in Iraq. The move is a major shift in Germany's post-WWII ethos.

Deutsche Welle, 31 Aug 2014


The German government announced on Sunday evening it would send anti-tank missiles and machine guns to Kurdish fighters battling Islamic State (IS) extremists in northern Iraq.

The German Defense Ministry said the arms, as well as protective gear and communications equipment, would be enough to supply 4,000 Kurdish Peshmerga fighters.

The delivery will take place over three shipments to start at the end of September. It will include 8,000 German-made G36 assault rifles and ammunition, 30 MILAN anti-tank systems, and five heavily armored Dingo infantry vehicles.

Berlin will also send 50 million euros ($65.6 million) in humanitarian aid to the region.

German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen (above right) made the announcement in Berlin alongside Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (above left), who said Germany must help in the fight against the Islamic State (IS).

"The situation in Iraq is extremely critical," von der Leyen said, accusing IS of "merciless brutality."

The IS has made significant territorial gains in recent months as part of a quest to establish a "caliphate" in northern Iraq and Syria. Chancellor Angela Merkel recently labeled the group's actions as "genocide."

Major shift

The move breaks Germany's long-standing reluctance to join military operations overseas, in part due to the military aggression from the Nazis last century and the consequent deep sense of pacifism in the country.

"This is the most difficult decision that I have had to make in my career," said German Economics Minister Sigmar Gabriel, who is also the vice chancellor Merkel's ruling coalition.

Merkel has repeatedly ruled out sending ground troops to Iraq.

Lawmakers in Germany's parliament, the Bundestag, are set to vote on the government's decision on Monday. Merkel's conservative Christian Democrat-led political bloc and its left-leaning Social Democrat (SPD) coalition partner, led by Gabriel, plan to back the move.

Germany has to help those displaced by the advance of the IS in the region.

"... ISIS/ISIL

Let me begin by repeating a part of a reading I had with Archangel Michael on July 11, 2014:

S: What is holding up the Reval now?

AAM: ISIS.

S: ISIS! Are they real?

AAM: Yes, they are real.

S: Is it not a CIA creation?

AAM: No. It is a grassroots organization. It is disgruntled ex-military.

S: Oh. Will they be able to hold it up for a long time?

AAM: No. Their goal is to create stability but it is stability at the price of great pain.

S: Yes, indeed.

AAM: There is no conscience. They believe that they act for Allah and to establish a Muslim state. But they are doing so through great violence.

Now this is part of what the Mother referred to as great chaos coming to the forefront. Will they be able to hold it up indefinitely? No. But the difficulty is that, with this Revaluation, if they were given even more money, that they would use it to buy very dangerous weapons.

S: Right. Does that mean that they’ll be able to hold it up indefinitely?

AAM: No. Not necessarily. [Next statement removed by request.]

S: But it won’t be in July.

AAM: It is more likely to be closer to September.

S: Any progress with the Dragons?

AAM: Oh, yes. There has been a great deal of progress with the Dragons. They are primed and ready to go but they are also not willing to allow a terrorist organization, regardless of their mission and purpose, as human as that is, to take that money and harm human beings.” (1)

Dutch government outlines plans to tackle jihadis, radicalisation

DutchNews.nl, Friday 29 August 2014

(NOS/AFP)
Dutch ministers on Friday agreed a package of measures to combat the growth of Muslim radicalisation and stop youngsters travelling abroad to take part in jihad, or holy war.

‘There is no room for spreading hatred or extremism in the Netherlands,’ social affairs minister Lodewijk Asscher and justice minister Ivo Opstelten said in a briefing to MPs. ‘The jihadist movement is the opposite of everything our country stands for.’

Around 120 Dutch nationals are thought to be fighting with organisations such as IS and at least 30 have since returned home. On Thursday, police arrested three people in connection with recruiting Dutch Muslims to the jihadi cause and for spreading hatred on the internet.

Nationality

In an effort to discourage young Dutch Muslims from signing up to terrorist movements, ministers plan to increase the options for withdrawing Dutch nationality from dual nationals.

This is to be extended to people who take part in a terrorist training camp or work in them as instructors, the ministers said. New legislation to this effect will be introduced in parliament next week.

Currently people can lose their Dutch nationality if they join a terrorist organisation or a foreign army which is involved in a war with the Netherlands or one of its allies.

Returnees

More measures are being introduced to deal with people returning to the Netherlands from conflict zones. They may be ordered to report to the police at given times or banned from contacting certain people, the ministers’ briefing said.

In addition, if people are suspected of making plans to travel to a conflict zone and join up with a terrorist organisation like IS, their passports may be declared invalid.

Ministers are also considering setting up an anonymous hotline to report potential jihadis.

Internet

A special police team will focus on the spreading of jihadist messages and hatred using social media and officials hope to make agreements with internet website providers about blocking access to such material.

Efforts will also be made to tackle the root causes of radicalisation by involving social workers, teachers and other experts and helping them spot youngsters who are in danger of going off the rails.

In addition, there will be help for youngsters who wish to escape the clutches of radical groups ‘under strict conditions’.

“.   New Tolerance

Look for a softening of finger pointing and an awakening of new tolerance. There will remain many systems for different cultures, as traditions and history are important to sustaining the integrity of culture. So there are many in the Middle East who would follow the prophet and they will continue, but with an increase of awareness. It will be the increase of awareness of what the prophet really wanted all along - unity and tolerance. The angel in the cave instructed him to "unify the tribes and give them the God of Israel." You're going to start seeing a softening of intolerance and the beginning of a new way of being.

Eventually, this will create an acknowledgement that says, "You may not believe the way we believe, but we honor you and your God. We honor our prophet and we will love you according to his teachings. We don't have to agree in order to love." How would you like that? The earth is not going to turn into one belief system. It never will, for Humans don't do that. There must be variety, and there must be the beauty of cultural differences. But the systems will slowly update themselves with increased awareness of the truth of a new kind of balance. So that's the first thing. Watch for these changes, dear ones. ...."

Three ways the iceman controls his immune system

NewScience, Alison George, 27 August 2014

The way of the iceman (Image: AP/Press Association)

We can learn to consciously control our immune system – that's the surprising finding from research based on the techniques of the "iceman" Wim Hof, famous for his ability to withstand cold for long periods. The research team, from Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, hopes that Hof's techniques might one day be used to treat autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. For now, the team is trying to establish which of the three components of Hof's technique are responsible for the profound suppression of the immune system that they observed.


How Hof does it

Meditation
Specifically, third-eye meditation, where you still your thoughts through visualising a third eye on your forehead. Find out more about the science of meditation in "Mind gym: Putting meditation to the test".

Cold exposure
You might not want to try this yourself, but Hof's training regime involves swimming in near-freezing water, climbing mountains in just shorts and lying bare-chested in snow for 20 minutes.

Breathing exercises

One of these involves hyperventilating for 30 breaths, then exhaling and holding the breath for up to 2 or even 3 minutes, followed by a deep inhalation of breath that is held for 10 seconds. Hof's second breathing exercise consists of deep inhalations and exhalations with breath-holding for 10 seconds, while tightening all body muscles.



"... Mining the Akash - The Role of Innate

What I'm going to tell next, we have given you before. However, I wish to explain it better in this communication. Your innate is also a governor of what you personally need. Let me explain: Turn a page with me. We have talked in the past about mining the Akash. So let us open that door for a moment. Is it possible, dear one, that you could go into the vast storehouse of the attributes of your past lives and pick out something that you need today? The answer is yes. It's called mining the Akash, and it is a staple of the Kryon teaching. However, the way it's accomplished by the individual Human is really difficult to describe. It's a personal intuitive process. However, one attribute of it that is often misunderstood is that permission from the innate is needed. This is because the innate smart body knows what you need. It is then the governor, or the filter, giving you permission regarding what can be pulled out of your Akash and used. It will say no to frivolous things and yes to the things that will allow you to cure yourself of disease, live longer, and increase the efficiency of your DNA. It's a smart body regulator.

Innate doesn't care how you look. It cares about your health. If you want to go into your Akash and pull out something that you need for survival, it's right there with you. If you want to make clearer skin, it won't respond. Do you see what I mean? It's the governor for mining the Akash. By the way, the Akash is very ready to be used for this. [Kryon wink]

You have earned what you've lived, dear ones, and it's very available. It lies in a quantum soup of lifetime information that is ready to be used. If you have a disease in your body right now, and perhaps you want to mine the Akash in a way that will create healing, you can. Like all nonlinear things, it requires a new, mature consciousness and practice to work. But the body is ready for you to "go get" the cellular structure of a past life that had no disease. The blueprint for this resides within you since you earned it and lived it. The innate is responsible for spontaneous remission! Science has no idea how a Human does this. The innate can help you "go get" the things within your earned Akash and place them into your cellular structure. That's how smart it is! Imagine clearing disease so completely that there is no sign it was ever there? It happens all the time. Imagine being able to drop a chemical dependency overnight? It's exactly the same principle.

Did you ever sit in a meeting and something is said or a feeling can happen, and you get chills? What are they? You might say, "They are chills of validation." Guess where they came from? The innate! The innate has the ability to signal you the truth. The brain does not. In fact, your brain will often get in the way. It's the brain that contains your box of belief. It's the brain that contains the perception of who you are based on experience and memory. It's your 3D survival instrument. But the brain can't give truth. It can only give you what it perceives as the truth, based on logical, processed, computed, synaptic reasoning and only based on your past experience.

Your brain can tell you not to touch the stove because of what happened once before. But it can't give you chills of validation from information it does not have. The intellect wants you to believe that your brain is supreme. However, the brain is only one part of the body system and not a very intuitive part. It is the innate that knows the truth. The innate is connected to the quantum parts of your DNA and, therefore, also knows of your spirituality and the truth of God inside.

The Next Step

One of the attributes of the future Human Being is to build a bridge between your Human consciousness and your innate. This is one of the three things in the cellular parts of the nine attributes lesson, the Human energies part. This needs to be a bridge of new tools so you no longer have to muscle-test. In fact, you can become your own medical intuitive. Doesn't this make sense? So, when a virus or bacteria invades your body - something your brain can't warn you about - you will know it anyway! This bridge will begin to complete the Human Being's evolution and is a logical next step for longer life. I know this makes sense to you. You should be able to sense these things when they occur rather than going to a doctor for tests. Going to a doctor for tests is not a bad thing, but it should validate what you know is happening and not be the discovery of it. ..."

Archbishop Tutu urges Dutch pension fund to pull out of Israeli banks

DutchNews.nl, Thursday 28 August 2014

The South African former archbishop
Desmond Tutu (Parool/EPA)
South Africa’s archbishop Desmond Tutu has urged civil service pension fund ABP to stop investing in three Israeli banks and ‘strike a powerful, non-violent blow for peace in the Middle East’.

The appeal came ahead of ABP’s monthly management board meeting and would be discussed, a spokeswoman for the fund - which is one of the biggest in the world - told Reuters. ABP has holdings totaling over €50m in the three banks.

Tutu said in his letter the investments ‘enable the expansion of Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian territories, and profit from the illegal seizure of this land’.

‘Your leadership could help to change the existing dynamic between Israel and Palestine - and stop ABP from being tainted by its collaboration with Israel’s occupation,’ the arch bishop said.

In January, Dutch health service pension fund PGGM pulled its investments from five Israeli banks.

Chile navy officer makes history by announcing he is gay

Santiago (AFP) - A navy officer became the first member of the Chilean military to reveal he is gay -- a groundbreaking admission in this conservative Catholic country.

"There is nothing better than being yourself," a shy-looking Mauricio Ruiz, 24, told a press conference on Wednesday.

He said he had already told his superiors because he was tired of leading a double life, then decided to go completely public by speaking to the media.

Chile is a highly conservative country, where even divorce was not allowed until 2004, and discrimination against suspected gays in the military and society in general have been common. A law governing same sex unions is being debated.

"For me it is important to take this step, because to be repressed is to not accept what you are, and that made me unhappy," Ruiz said.

Gays can have a tough time in Chile.

The violent death of a young gay man named Daniel Zamudio at the hands of alleged neo-Nazis prompted a 2012 law that punished people who discriminated against others because of their race, sexual orientation or social status.

Gay rights groups welcomed Ruiz's announcement.

"He took a pioneering decision, worthy of brave people who take the first step," said Oscar Rementeria, spokesman for the Homosexual Integration and Liberation Movement.

Ruiz said his partner initially did not want him to come out because he feared for Ruiz's safety. The partner stood beside him at the press conference.

In the end, the reaction was not as adverse as he expected, Ruiz said.

"I don't know what I was afraid of," he said.

First 'boycott tomatoes' arrive at Dutch food banks

DutchNews.nl, Wednesday 27 August 2014

(NOS)
A consignment of 4,000 kilos of tomatoes have been delivered to Arnhem’s food banks under new rules to stop food waste because of the Russian boycott of Dutch produce.

The economic affairs ministry has brought in temporary rules to allow growers to remove fruit and vegetables destined for Russia from the market.

Brussels has set aside €125m to compensate growers for the loss of trade and the compensation is higher if the produce is sent to food banks, news agency ANP said.

The compensation deal applies to tomatoes, carrots, white cabbage, bell peppers, cauliflower, cucumbers, mushrooms, apples, pears and various soft fruits.

The Dutch food bank association estimates it can distribute 300,000 kilos of fruit and veg a week to low income families.

So far 45 growers have come forward to claim compensation, the Financieele Dagblad said.

New 'skin' makes 1960s terraced home super energy efficient

DutchNews.nl, Monday 25 August 2014

Solar panels allow the house to become energy self-sufficient. Photo: TU Delft

Students from Delft University have turned an ordinary 1960s terraced house into an energy-neutral home by giving it a ‘new skin’ involving solar panels, glass walls and smart technology.

The project shows how 1.4 million similar terraced homes in the Netherlands could be made energy self-sufficient and won top prize for sustainability at the 2014 Solar Decathlon event in France earlier this summer.

The home, a replica of the house lived in by one of the students as a child, has been rebuilt in Delft with all the high-tech modifications. The project is called Prêt-à-Loger – ready to be lived in – because the residents are able to remain living there while renovations are carried out.

Delft researchers will use the house as a test site for improving the indoor environment in homes and for the further development of consumer products, systems and fittings within buildings and solar cells.

The house is the first building in The Green Village, a Delft initiative to develop a living laboratory for sustainable innovations on the university campus.

The house was formally opened on Monday by housing minister Stef Blok.


It is the first time that an old house in this way energy is made ​​neutral
