… 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. …

At talks, Colombian rebels urge regulated drug farms

Havana — Colombia's FARC rebels on Tuesday called for the regulated cultivation and sale of illegal crops like coca leaf, opium poppies and marijuana as a fresh round of peace talks with government negotiators got under way.

Rebel negotiator Pablo Catatumbo unveiled the proposal before the start of a negotiating session dealing with drug trafficking, the industry that has long fuelled Colombia's brutal civil war.

He said the proposal would "regulate the production and marketing of coca leaf, poppies and marijuana, in recognition of their nutritional, medicinal, therapeutic and cultural qualities... as well as their artisanal and industrial possibilities."

He called for the de-militarization of areas where small farmers would be allowed to grow the crops under UN supervision, and an end to the crop eradication programs that have been a central feature of US-financed counter-drug programs in Colombia.

Catatumbo said the latest proposal was based on a pilot project advanced during a previous unsuccessful set of peace talks in 2000 by FARC founder Manuel Marulanda.

"The amounts produced would be based on studies of the potential domestic as well as international demand," said Catatumbo.

"That involves creating a legal market for coca leaf, poppies and marijuana, controlled by the state through a system of price supports and state purchases," he said.

Under the FARC's proposal, the program would be funded by the government with the savings that come from eliminating the military presence in those areas, he said.

Funding should also come from international sources, including the countries that are the biggest consumers of illicit drugs, he said.

Catatumbo denounced what he said were "criminal state policies based on the persecution, stigmatization and criminalization of peasant farmers."

There was no immediate reaction to the proposal from the government of President Juan Manuel Santos.

But the FARC initiative echoed a recent move by Uruguay to legalize and regulate the cultivation and sale of marijuana, as well as drug legalization proposals elsewhere in the Americas.

Last November, the FARC's top leader, Timoleon Jimenez, alias "Timochenko," said he was in favor of drug legalization in Colombia, arguing that eradication programs had created social problems by depriving poor farmers of a source of income.

The government, meanwhile, accuses the FARC of financing its operations through the drug trade in areas where it holds sway.

Founded in 1964, the FARC is Latin America's longest insurgency and biggest guerrilla army, with an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 fighters.

Colombia is one of the world's top producers of cocaine.

The Santos government and the FARC opened peace talks in November 2012, taking up the issue of drug trafficking in the past two months.

Negotiators have so far reached consensus on just two agenda topics -- rural development, and the rebels' participation in the country's political life once a comprehensive peace agreement is reached.

But two other agenda items have yet to be discussed: compensation for victims of the conflict and the disarmament of the rebel forces.
