… 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. …

Sieren’s China: Beijing takes the plunge in Latin America

China’s generous investment in Latin America, including key infrastructure projects, is a geo-political chess game, but it is also high-risk, writes DW columnist Frank Sieren.

Deutsche Welle, 2 Feb 2015

In geo-political terms, the world's most significant infrastructure project can currently be found in Nicaragua. To the tune of $50 billion, the Chinese began work last December on a new canal linking the Pacific and the Atlantic. 280 kilometers long and 30 meters deep, The Nicaragua Canal will be able to accomodate ships too large for the Panama Canal, thereby bringing an end to its100-year long monopoly.

El Gran Canal is a prime example of how Beijing skillfully navigates the world stage. It uses favorable credit terms to win politically valuable contracts and major infrastructure projects that bring with them a supply of resources such as oil and natural gas, as well as foodstuffs such as corn.

The new waterway is only one of many ambitious projects that China is currently rolling out on the US doorstep. Earlier this year, Beijing hosted the first summit of the 33 countries that make up the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC). Despite the many landmark decisions made at the meeting, it was largely ignored by the western media.

Further investments planned

DW columnist Frank Sieren
Chinese President Xi Jinping, for example, pledged to ringfence a further $250 billion for China's partners over the next 10 years. But there's no such thing as a free lunch. In the past, Beijing approved loans in return for raw materials.

The January summit underscored a development that has been underway for a few years; namely, that China's role in Central and South America is defined less by the country's thirst for resources and more by an overall push for influence. Beijng is no longer satisfied merely with buying oil. The lion's share of its investment has been earmarked for infrastructure in the CELAC countries in a move designed to boost trade relations.

On a visit to Latin America last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping inked deals as though they were going out of fashion. Argentina got new rail projects; 29 contracts were signed in Cuba, including one for a new port, while China has now signed over 300 agreements with cooperation partner número uno, Venezuela, a country that has received loans worth over $40 billion in the last four years. Beijing is now eyeing not only Latin America's raw materials but increasingly, its markets, too.

Knocking the US off the top spot

As always, trade is no one-way street. 25 percent of Chile's exports already make their way across the Pacific; 15 percent of Brazil's and Uruguay's, while 8 percent of Colombia's and Argentina's total exports go to China. Trade volume is 20 times higher than it was at the start of the 21st century. China is now the main trade partner of Brazil, Chile and Peru, and the second main trade partner for Argentina.

It seems obvious that President Xi is aiming to replace the US as the region's trade partner, reducing its influence in the process as an added bonus. It's a goal he will most likely achieve.

Washington is hardly able to top China's generous financial injections. But it can comfort itself with the knowledge that China's strategy is a risky one. After all, the faltering economies of Latin America are failing to recover as efficiently as Beijing would like.

Other foreign investors are taking their money out of these unstable emerging economies. Inflation is rampant in Brazil, the region's largest economy. The economies of Argentina and Venezuela shrunk in the last quarters. If these markets don't get back on track, the flurry of Chinese investment could start to tail off fast. But after the recent summit in Beijing, the aforementioned countries can breathe a sigh of relief – at least for now. Beijing hasn't lost its patience yet. But it's setting higher prices for its geopolitical gains. These, however, shouldn't be underestimated.

" .... South America and the New Energy

South America is starting to consider the same thing. My partner was just there and I allowed him to see the energy of the potential future in that land.

I would like to paint history for you regarding South America. There was a time when every single country had a dictator. Less than 15 years ago, they had failing economies and currencies that were worthless. Trouble and strife and killings were the norm. Marauding drug lords openly killed in the streets and corruption was everywhere. Even the politicians created fear and many disappeared overnight, never to be seen again. Today it isn't that way. Today, there is an ongoing stability as one country after another brings a new, positive, stable energy to their cultures. So, without a concentrated effort by any kind of multi-national leadership or direction, how could this have changed in only 15 years?

Within the entire continent, there's only one dictator left. What's happening? If you think that's amazing, there is a move afoot that you're not going to hear about yet. But they're discussing it right now, so let me tell you what they're thinking. "What would happen if we took these countries and eliminated the borders?" Sound familiar? They're talking about it. In back rooms where nobody is reporting it, they're saying, "What about a plan of eventually having one currency from the top of Columbia to the bottom of Chile? And we would be strong and we would be unified." And dear ones, I'm here to tell you, that it's going to work, and it might not take 50 years. Soon the one dictator will be gone, and the unification can begin.

There's a shift happening on this planet.. ...."
