… 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. …

Netherlands to sell ABN Amro bank stake

The Dutch government has announced plans to sell the state-owned bank, seven years after it was nationalized during the global financial crisis. The move sets the stage for one of the largest bank flotations in years.

Deutsche Welle, 22 May 2015


Netherlands gave the green light Friday for the stake sale, which is to take place in stages. The decision paves the way for one of the largest bank flotations in years, with the government valuing the lender at about 15 billion euros ($16.5 billion). The move also marks a milestone in Europe's long recovery from the financial crisis of 2008.

"Now the bank can stand on its own feet again," Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem said in a statement. The initial sale could be worth between 3 billion and 4.5 billion euros and take place as soon as the fourth quarter of this year, pending parliament's approval, Dijsselbloem added.

One of the three big Dutch banks, ABN Amro was a global player in 2007 when it was taken over and dismembered in a 71-billion-euro hostile bid that was the largest-ever in the banking industry.

The 2007 takeover proved disastrous both for ABN and its buyers, the Royal Bank of Scotland, itself later nationalized by the British government, Santander and the now defunct Fortis.

And just a year later, in 2008, the global financial crisis forced the Dutch government to bail out ABN to the tune of 17 billion euros and shell out a further 5 billion euros on its restructuring.

Significant market interest

This time, the government will seek to avoid that risk. The shares issued will be certificates granting a voting right that can be suspended under certain circumstances.

Dijsselbloem said he expected the state to remain a shareholder in the bank for "a number of years" following the initial share sale and that strong anti-takeover positions would be put in place when the bank relisted.

He also noted there was considerable market interest in the bank and added that the Dutch central bank agreed a 2015 listing was possible.

"The results of the first quarter of 2015 show the business performance of the bank is good," the finance minister said.

The bank, which has 22,000 employees, made a net profit of 543 million euros in the first quarter, its best quarterly performance for four years.

Its return to private hands, which has been planned since 2013, was delayed by the Dutch government in March amid public anger over the scale of mooted salary increases for directors.

The proposal to increase salaries of most ABN Amro executives by 100,000 euros each has since been scrapped.
