… 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. …

Fifa officials will be ordered to surrender designer watches left in World Cup hotel rooms as gifts

Ethics committee of football's world governing body will rule that its members cannot keep watches offered as World Cup souvenirs

Sepp Blatter and other members of Fifa’s executive committee will be ordered to surrender designer watches worth hundreds of thousands of pounds after being given them at the World Cup.

Football’s world governing body on Friday night confirmed its ethics committee had been informed about gifts delivered to its president and 26 other executives during the tournament in Brazil, the acceptance of which would be a clear breach of its code of ethics.

Fifa also revealed its chief investigator, Michael J Garcia, who last week submitted his long-awaited report into the controversial 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids, had already blocked the delivery of another set of expensive watches to its ExCo shortly before this summer’s showpiece.

Its ethics committee is expected to rule next week that members cannot keep the second set of timepieces left for them in their Rio hotel rooms by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

Fifa, beset by bribery scandals in recent years, insisted on Friday night that there was no evidence Blatter or any of its other executives had deliberately breached a code of ethics that prohibited the acceptance of gifts of anything other than “symbolic or trivial value”.

Indeed, a source said that some ExCo members had not even taken a gift bag containing the watch which had been left for them, others were unaware what was in the bag, while some reported the gifts to the relevant authority upon discovering them.

Fifa confirmed the watches were designer timepieces by Parmigiani, commissioned as part of the CBF’s centennial celebrations, with each worth tens of thousands of pounds.

The other watches which never reached ExCo members were sent to Fifa’s headquarters in Zurich by its official World Cup timekeeper, Hublot, as a “souvenir” of the tournament. They were intended to be delivered to executives at the governing body’s annual congress in Sao Paulo in June but Garcia and the independent chairman of Fifa’s audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, ruled that would not be acceptable.

A Fifa source said on Friday night the action taken by Garcia and Scala in both cases demonstrated the governance reforms it introduced in the past couple of years was having a major effect.

The governing body added in a formal statement: “Firstly, the fact is that Fifa has not distributed any watches to any of the members of its executive committee nor to its president.

“As the official timekeeper of the 2014 Fifa World Cup, and in line with the company’s standard approach for any of its marketing activations, Hublot provided Fifa with watches as part of the contract and as a form of value in kind.

“In accordance with internal governance processes, Fifa formally asked the independent chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Fifa ethics committee, Michael J Garcia, and the independent chairman of the audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, in June 2014 if it would be acceptable to provide its executive committee and the Fifa president with these watches as a souvenir of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

“The two chairmen determined in June 2014 that this would not be permitted under the organisation’s compliance rules and as such it was decided not to distribute any of the watches to any members.

“Secondly, the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) distributed commemorative watches at the Fifa World Cup in Brazil from their own sponsor (as part of the association’s centennial celebrations) to various people, including the members of the Fifa executive committee. The ethics committee was informed about this accordingly and is dealing with the matter.”

Fifa brought in a new code of ethics in 2012 after being engulfed by allegations of bribery relating to its relationships with its partners and the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Garcia’s long-awaited report into the latter saga is expected to lead to further action to prevent a repeat of the controversy but it remains to be seen whether any individuals or countries are found guilty of wrongdoing.
