… 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. …

Dutch expo seeks to unveil the mystery of Mata Hari

Leeuwarden (Netherlands) (AFP) - She scandalised society by dancing almost naked when women still wore corsets and their dresses long. Yet a century after her death, Mata Hari remains veiled in mystery.

Now a Dutch museum in the Friesian town of her birth is seeking to shed new light on the exotic dancer, bringing together for the first time 150 objects, photos and military archives in the largest-ever exhibition devoted to one of the world's most famous courtesans and seductresses.

Her story was "a dramatic cocktail of courage and glory, loss and betrayal," says the museum about the ultimate femme fatale, executed by a French firing squad on charges of being a double agent on October 15, 1917.

Giant black-and-white photos of Mata Hari wearing her barely-there, bejewelled costumes hang on the walls of the Fries Museum in northern Leeuwarden, the town where she was born as Margaretha Zelle in 1876.

Never-before-seen scrapbooks, personal belongings, letters, books and jewellery are on display in "Mata Hari: The Myth and the Maiden" running until April 2.

Shown in darkened rooms where videos play of dancers recreating her sensuous choreography, the exhibition is both intimate and surprising.

There are posters of her appearances in such famous theatres as the Folies Bergere, and in one room by an antique child's crib visitors learn her two-year-old son, Norman, died of syphilis, likely contracted from his mother.

"It is the story of the life of a very famous person who got a lot of attention during her career, got into a lot of trouble, arrested and accused of being a spy," said museum curator Hans Groeneweg, who has spent several years amassing the collection.

'Life ends in tragedy'

Margaretha married young to an army officer 20 years older than her, who was based in the former Dutch East Indies, now Indonesia. They had two children, Norman, and a younger girl, Non.

But in 1903 aged 27, she fled after a nasty divorce to Paris, where, penniless, she became a striptease dancer, taking the name "Mata Hari", Indonesian for "Eye of the Day".

Exhibits on display include a delicate, crown-shaped gold and pearl brooch,

The objects on display "trace her path from being a young girl, to her life as a mother,... her exotic career as a courtesan and her journey during the war," Groeneweg said, adding the aim was to give visitors a more "complete" picture of the real woman.

There is a delicate, crown-shaped gold and pearl brooch, which Mata Hari gave a German officer just before her death, asking him to send it to her daughter, letters after her divorce full of despair, and even her death warrant with the word "Mort" (Deceased) starkly handwritten across it in black ink italics.

"I'm tired of fighting life," Mata Hari wrote in one letter, appealing that Non, who she'd left behind in The Netherlands, be allowed to join her in Paris.

"Either Nonnie lives with me and I behave like a decent mother, or I'm going to enjoy the beautiful life being offered to me here. I know that life ends in tragedy -- but I'm over that," she wrote presciently.

She was a prolific letter writer and there are missives between her and her husband when she was still deeply in love, as well as her son's baby album lovingly filled in until his sudden death.

"Instead of dancing to the praise of the powerful and famous, I am here, in a hospital room at the bedside of my dying child," she wrote.

Later there are postcards from across Europe to her daughter some simply signed "Mama" and French army archives recounting her interrogation and trial kept secret until recently.

"I am desperately worried and I cry all the time," she wrote in April 1917 to the French judge from her Parisian cell, asking for news of her then Russian lover who had abandoned her.

"You cannot imagine my suffering. Please release me, I cannot cope with it any longer."

True spy?

Many questions still remain about Mata Hari.

To what extent was she really a spy? Why, after accepting an offer in 1916 from a German diplomat to spy on France if he paid off her debts, did she become a double agent for France? Was she just naive, or desperate, or both?

For Groeneweg there is "always that question: Was she really guilty?"

He believes there is still "not enough proof to say for certain if she was a spy. The French certainly wanted to set an example during a very difficult year in 1917. They used her."

And despite the exhibition, it seems that in the end, Mata Hari, who reinvented herself as the Javanese princess who rode elephants, took many of her secrets to the grave.
