… 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. …

Brazil forms 'crisis cabinet' following unexpected deforestation surge

Government vows to 'suffocate environmental crime' after 27% rise in Amazon deforestation in a year

Hundreds of environmental protection officers are being deployed in the Brazilian Amazon after government satellites detected a sudden, unexpected surge in deforestation.

On Wednesday, Brazil's environment minister Izabella Teixeira announced the creation of a "crisis cabinet" to crackdown on illegal logging in the world's largest tropical rainforest, after satellites registered a 27% hike in Amazon deforestation between August 2010 and April this year compared with the previous year.

"The order is to suffocate environmental crime," said Teixeira, following the release of images that showed at least 1,848 sq km of rainforest had been destroyed, compared with 1,455 sq km a year earlier.

Satellite data painted an even more disturbing picture of deforestation in March and April this year when nearly 593 sq km of forest were lost – an increase of over 470% compared with the same period in 2010.

Officials said the most dramatic situation was in the soy-growing state of Mato Grosso, where farmers are said to be using tractors and giant chains to rip up vast tracts of native forest.

Brazil's environmental protection agency, Ibama, this week vowed to launch 200 operations in the region by the end of the year, with support from armed federal police operatives. Illegal cattle and timber would be seized, it said.

This week's announcement comes after successive years in which Amazon deforestation fell dramatically. Last December Teixeira publicly celebrated reaching "the lowest level of deforestation in the history of Amazonia".

On Wednesday, however, Teixeira admitted the sudden reversal was "scary" and "atypical". "Until this deforestation is reduced, none [of our agents] will leave the field," she said.

Brazil's environment minister said it was too early to know what had caused the sudden spike in destruction.

But many environmentalists are convinced it is linked to an ongoing and highly controversial debate over changes to Brazil's forest code that Amazon farmers and ranchers hope will enable them to expand their properties, and boost economic development.

Under the new proposals, the amount of rainforest that Amazon landowners are required to protect, currently set at 80%, could be reduced.

Andre Muggiati, an Amazon-based campaigner for environmental group Greenpeace, said anticipation of such changes had sparked a "deforestation frenzy". Many ranchers and deforesters were convinced they would be forgiven for newly razed areas, he said.

"They are opening large areas right now and it is not even deforestation season because it is raining in the Amazon region," he said.

"If the bill is approved then we are going to have the largest deforestation [levels] in the Amazon and in Brazil in general in many years this year."

"It looked like the country was going one way – a good way for forest conservation – meeting targets, carbon emission reduction. We were really doing fine. But we decided to take a U-turn and go the other way. It is really bad what is happening," Muggiati added. "The country is going backwards in terms of forest conservation, definitely."

Brazil's Congress is expected to vote on changes to the forest code by the end of this month.
