… 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. …

'Panama Papers' law firm under the media's lenses

Panama City (AFP) - The law firm at the heart of the "Panama Papers" scandal was in lockdown on Monday, with private security guards keeping a small but growing pack of news photographers and cameramen at bay.

The bland, mirrored exterior of the building housing the Mossack Fonseca firm in Panama's main banking zone sits back upon a tidy lawn.

Half a dozen journalists trained lenses on it from the sidewalk. There were no police officers in sight.

Revelations from a massive dump of leaked data from Mossack Fonseca's servers detailing how the world's wealthy -- politicians, footballers and some criminals -- used its lawyers to set up offshore companies is sending shock waves around the world.

One of Mossack Fonseca's two founders, Ramon Fonseca, on Sunday told AFP the leak of 11.5 million documents from his firm was the result of a "limited hack."

But he said publishing the information from it was a "crime" because "each person has a right to privacy, whether they are a king or a beggar."

He also claimed it was an attack on Panama, "because certain countries don't like it that we are so competitive in attracting companies."

Panama 'regret' over leak

Panama's foreign minister and vice president, Isabel De Saint Malo, said on her Twitter account on Monday as she was visiting Italy: "We regret (the) news at a global level that is affecting Panama."

Her government has sought to rid the Central American nation of a reputation as a hub for shady transactions helping money launderers and tax avoiders.

The government has vowed to cooperate "vigorously" with any judicial requests that might emerge from the scandal.

But while Panama has managed to get off an international money-laundering blacklist, its foot-dragging over lifting banking secrecy and automatically exchanging client financial information has kept it in the sights of other nations, particularly the US and in Europe.

De Saint Malo reiterated that her country had taken "drastic" steps to improve transparency and put some restrictions on the creation of offshore companies.

Reforms include cracking down on the use of bearer bonds -- shares that are owned by whoever physically holds the paper -- as well as regulating free-tax zones, casinos, property, construction and money-change firms.

OECD pushes Panama

But the Organization for Economic Cooperations and Development (OECD) says Panama has not gone far enough in meeting international standards on reporting financial information to other jurisdictions.

The head of the OECD's tax policy center, Pascal Saint-Amans, said on Sunday that "Panama has become the most opaque place on earth."

On Monday, the OECD's secretary general, Angel Gurria, said: "The 'Panama Papers' revelations have shone the light on Panama's culture and practice of secrecy. Panama is the last major holdout that continues to allow funds to be hidden offshore from tax and law enforcement authorities."

Gurria, a Mexican economist, noted that, while the leaked data exposed "nefarious activities," they also showed a decline in the use of offshore companies and bearer bonds, which he attributed to the OECD's campaign against tax havens.

He said a G20 meeting of finance ministers from the world's top economies in London next month "will be critical" in eradicating banking secrecy and tax evasion.
