… 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. …

Ian Thorpe comes out as gay in Parkinson interview

The Australian swimming champion tells a private tale of depression, alcohol problems and drug abuse

After years of denial, swimming champion Ian Thorpe has revealed he is gay in an exclusive interview with Sir Michael Parkinson. The five-time Olympic gold medallist and Australia's most successful Olympic athlete to date, has revealed his sexuality in an interview to be aired on Australian television on Sunday night.

According to Australian newspaper the Sunday Telegraph, Thorpe, 31, who retired from swimming in 2012, "confirms his sexuality" and "has bravely revealed he is gay" during a tell-all interview. A teaser clip released by Australia's Network Ten shows Parkinson asking the swimmer: "You've always said that you're not gay. Is all of that true?" The camera then shifts to an uncomfortable looking Thorpe, who contemplates his response.

Thorpe, known as the "Thorpedo" for his prowess in the swimming pool, broke 22 world records and won five Olympic gold medals. At the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he won three gold and two silver medals, making him the most successful athlete at the Games. He also won 10 gold medals at the Commonwealth Games.

The interview, which Parkinson has described as one of the best he has conducted, also details the swimmer's battle with depression, drugs and alcohol, which caused him to check into a rehabilitation unit earlier this year.

The revelations are dramatic particularly because Thorpe has always vehemently denied rumours of his homosexuality. In his own autobiography This Is Me, published in 2012, the swimmer said that he found questions about his sexuality hurtful, writing: "For the record, I am not gay and all my sexual experiences have been straight. I'm attracted to women, I love children and aspire to have a family one day … I know what it's like to grow up and be told what your sexuality is, then realising that it's not the full reality. I was accused of being gay before I knew who I was.''

This came after years of public denials, including a statement issued in 2009 by his management company: "In the past, on several separate occasions, I have answered questions about my sexuality openly and honestly with the media … my situation in this regard has not changed," he said. And in July 2011 he told the Sunday Times: "I don't think anybody has a right to write about [my private life], but I don't care enough about it to be bothered. If you try and fight it, you're damned; if you don't, you're damned. If you get married, it's a sham."

Parkinson said Thorpe's decision that no question was off limits was brave and says he examines the good times and the bad of the Australian swimming legend.

"His fight against depression offers a unique insight into the darker side of celebrity and success," Parkinson said in a statement released by Network Ten.

"Ian Thorpe has always been near the top of my list to interview. The reasons are obvious. Not many athletes can claim to be the best of all time. Ian can.

"What fascinates me most about Ian is that, apart from the very beginning of his career, he never seemed to enjoy and celebrate his success … The story of a boy who was a teenage world champion, conquered the world and then seemed to give it all away is a fascinating and intriguing one."

Aged 14, Thorpe became the youngest male to represent Australia. His victory in the 400m freestyle at the 1998 Perth World Championships made him the youngest individual male world champion. After that, Thorpe became master of the 400m freestyle, winning the event at every Olympic, World, Commonwealth and Pan Pacific Swimming Championships until his break after the 2004 Olympics.

He originally retired from swimming in 2006, aged 24, due to waning motivation. He attempted a comeback in 2011 and 2012, but failed to qualify for the London Olympics. It was subsequently announced that he was targeting qualification for the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona and later the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow but was forced to abandon his plans due to a shoulder injury that almost cost him his arm.

He has, however, enjoyed success as a sports commentator and worked for the BBC during the London Olympics. He will also be part of Network Ten's Commonwealth Games commentary team this month.

The revelation sparked a frenzy on social media, with many coming out in support of the swimmer. "Ian Thorpe we're proud of YOU Regardless of sexuality, achievements, medals or anything else … You're an Aussie who we'll love & stand by," @2dayFMbreakfast wrote on Twitter. "Big love to @IanThorpe!" tweeted @GayTimesMag.

"'I can only hope Thorpe's revelations help millions of teens struggling inside themselves to find the courage to be them. Snaps for Thorpie," wrote Lady Catherine @KadyLio, while Anthony Venn-Brown @gayambassador tweeted: "Life's much brighter on this side of the closet @IanThorpe. Welcome to being you."

“… Gender Switching

Old souls, let me tell you something. If you are old enough, and many of you are, you have been everything. Do you hear me? All of you. You have been both genders. All of you have been what I will call between genders, and that means that all of you have had gender switches. Do you know what happens when it's time for you to switch a gender? We have discussed it before. You'll have dozens of lifetimes as the same gender. You're used to it. It's comfortable. You cannot conceive of being anything else, yet now it's time to change. It takes approximately three lifetimes for you to get used to it, and in those three lifetimes, you will have what I call "gender confusion."

It isn't confusion at all. It's absolutely normal, yet society often will see it as abnormal. I'm sitting here telling you you've all been through it. All of you. That's what old souls do. It's part of the system. …”
