… 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. …

Jaap van Zweden, violinist turned maestro, to lead NY Philharmonic

New York (AFP) - The New York Philharmonic on Wednesday named Dutch conductor Jaap van Zweden as its next music director, tapping a master of classic fare at a time of transition for the orchestra.

The 55-year-old violinist turned maestro, who now leads the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra, will take the helm of the most prestigious North American orchestra starting with the 2018-19 season.

Van Zweden said it took him "one minute" to decide to accept the offer and described New York as the "center of the world" for music.

"I have this feeling that this is the biggest box of diamonds and every conductor who is taking that stage has the ongoing task to shape these diamonds and let them shine as good as he can," he told a news conference at the Philharmonic's home at Lincoln Center.

Van Zweden succeeds the retiring Alan Gilbert, an American who has pursued both classic and modern works and has been active in initiatives to expand the Philharmonic's audience through international cooperation and technology.

The Dutch conductor will become the 26th music director of the New York Philharmonic, following in the footsteps of greats such as Gustav Mahler, Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez and Kurt Masur.

Van Zweden owes his conducting career in no small part to Bernstein.

As a violinist, Van Zweden at age 18 became the youngest concertmaster of the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.

Bernstein was conducting the Concertgebouw on a tour of Europe in the late 1980s when the legendary maestro declared at a rehearsal of Mahler's Symphony No. 1 that he wanted to listen from the audience's perspective.

Bernstein handed the baton to Van Zweden despite the violinist's protests that he had never conducted.

Bernstein "came back and said, 'That was pretty bad, but I saw something there and I would like to take it very seriously,'" Van Zweden said.

Van Zweden said that his relative late start as a conductor gave him an advantage as he can easily relate to the musicians.

New York 'in my heart,' but staying in HK

Van Zweden will arrive at a time of transition for the Philharmonic, which expects to be homeless for two seasons starting in 2019 as the concert hall undergoes a $500 million renovation.

Fund-raising will in all likelihood be a major part of his job, although entertainment mogul David Geffen has already donated a critical $100 million for the hall that now bears his name.

As a graduate of the Juilliard School, also at Lincoln Center, Van Zweden said he understood the United States better than some foreign conductors might.

"New York is in my heart," he said. "I don't have any doubts that I will connect easily."

Van Zweden said that he would leave his position one year early in Dallas, as it would be awkward to lead two orchestras in the same country.

But he said he will keep his position in Hong Kong, where he began in 2012, explaining he was eager to carry out plans despite the vast distance from New York.

Search among leading classical figures

Van Zweden has earned a reputation as an exacting conductor able to deliver refined performances of classic repertoire by the great composers such as Beethoven, Mahler and Mozart.

The conductor, however, said he hoped to strike "balance" and was also enthusiastic about working with living composers.

"The problem is for us conductors, and the orchestras, we cannot ask Beethoven how he wanted his symphonies," he said.

Van Zweden, who made his New York Philharmonic debut in 2012, will return in the coming season for a number of concerts before he formally takes his role.

Van Zweden's selection ends a prolonged search that has turned into a classical version of musical chairs among the world's top orchestras.

Simon Rattle last year was named music director of the London Symphony Orchestra, moving from the Berlin Philharmonic which after initial deadlock tapped Kirill Petrenko.

Andris Nelsons, a dynamic 37-year-old Latvian who has won acclaim at the Boston Symphony Orchestra, had been considered a frontrunner in New York until he was hired last year by the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, making another commitment impossible.

Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Finnish composer who long led the Los Angeles Philharmonic, had also been seen as a leading contender for the Big Apple job but has said he wants to focus on his own work instead of conducting.
