… 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. …

“… The Fall of Many - Seen It Yet?

You are going to see more and more personal secrets being revealed about persons in high places of popularity or government. It will seem like an epidemic of non-integrity! But what is happening is exactly what we have been teaching. The new energy has light that will expose the darkness of things that are not commensurate with integrity. They have always been there, and they were kept from being seen by many who keep secrets in the dark. Seen the change yet?

In order to get to a more stable future, you will have to go through gyrations of dark and light. What this means is that the dark is going to be revealed and push back at you. It will eventually lose. We told you this. That's what you're here for is to help those around you who don't see an escape from the past. They didn't get their nuclear war, but everything else is going into the dumper anyway. … “

Angela Knight to step down as British Bankers' Association chief

Knight says her five years in job was a time of 'extraordinary difficulty', and she has 'one more job in me'

Angela Knight, the voice of banking during five of the most tumultuous years in the industry's history, is to step down this summer.

Knight, who is 61, said she had "one more job in me" as she announced her departure from the British Bankers' Association. She described her time there as one of "extraordinary difficulty" that came "during a crisis of a magnitude that few if any have seen before or expected".

A former Conservative MP and economic secretary to Ken Clarke, she joined the BBA on 1 April 2007 and was soon pitched into battle on behalf of the businesses blamed for the worst recession since the Great Depression.

Her first trial by fire came on Friday, 14 September 2007, the day the queues formed outside Northern Rock in the first run on a British bank since the 19th century, when Knight took on 19 back-to-back television and radio interviews from a studio at London's Millbank Tower.

As the credit crunch and the collapse of Lehman Brothers followed, Knight become an early morning fixture of Radio 4's Today Programme. During her tenure at the BBA, she has given over 800 broadcast interviews, made over 1,000 speeches, and travelled over 14,000km to and from Brussels alone.

"It's been a lot of ground covered in both distance and issues," she said on Monday. At a time when "banker bashing" became a national sport, Knight's challenge was to defend the industry while avoiding becoming as unpopular as those she represented. She played a key role in shaping the legislation introduced to reform British banks and prevent a similar financial collapse.

On Monday, she paid tribute to her team at the BBA, describing the organisation as "strong and forward looking", and to the commuters who became her sounding board during her morning train ride from Ascot to Waterloo. "I'm kept in order by those who I travel on the train with in the morning. There's plenty of time for people to give me a view."

Knight drew personal criticism for taking on the retail banks' fight against rulings that they should compensate customers for over £5bn of mis-sold payment protection insurance. The BBA backed away from seeking a judicial review after Lloyds Banking Group and Barclays withdrew their support.

"We had to take it on behalf of the banks and that is very hard for a trade association on a very unpopular issue," said Knight. "It became very personalised. But you can't just walk away."

A chemistry graduate who started her career working for Air Products, an American industrial gas company, she set up on her own, forming Knight & Cook, a metallurgical processor, before entering local politics in Sheffield as a Tory councillor. She entered parliament in 1992 before serving as economic secretary to the Treasury between 1995 and 1997.

She lost her seat in the 1997 general election that swept Tony Blair to power, and joined the Association of Private Client Investment Manager and Stockbrokers, where she was instrumental in breaking up a 2000 merger plan between the London and Frankfurt stock exchanges. At the time, she described herself as "a woman with two kids doing a job".

BBA chairman Marcus Agius praised her "extraordinary leadership and energy" and said she had been instrumental in making the BBA "the key voice in the debate on the future of the banking sector".
