… 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. … “

French rogue trader to go to prison

Paris — A top French appeals court on Wednesday upheld rogue trader Jerome Kerviel's three-year jail sentence over high-risk trading that cost Societe Generale bank nearly five billion euros.

But the court cancelled the 4.9 billion euros ($6.8 billion) that Kerviel was ordered to pay back, referring the issue of damages to another court for a fresh decision.

Kerviel's lawyer Patrice Spinosi had argued in February while appealing the conviction for breach of trust that Societe Generale had committed "wilful misconduct" and was aware of his client's high-risk trading.

The controversial trader spent 41 days in pre-trial detention in 2008, but was then released.

Kerviel is currently undertaking a protest walk from Rome to Paris, but can now technically be put behind bars at any time.

He was sentenced to three years in prison in October 2010 for breach of trust, forgery and entering false data for unauthorised deals that threatened to bankrupt the bank, one of the biggest in Europe.

Spinosi said Wednesday's decision to send the ruling on damages for judgement again would effectively amount to Societe Generale going on trial over the failure of its supervisory system.

"It is, at the very least, surprising that Jerome Kerviel is being sent to prison when the existence of significant failures by his employer and the consequences of these failures have just been recognised as a factor in the case," Spinosi added.

Another Kerviel lawyer, David Koubbi, termed the outcome of the hearing a "victory" for his client.

But Jean Veil, the lawyer for Societe Generale, said the 37-year-old Kerviel "has lost the case".

The controversial trader is on a 1,400-kilometre (870-mile) protest trek to highlight the "tyranny of the markets".

He had met with Pope Francis in the Vatican during the pontiff's weekly general audience on February 19 before starting his protest.

"This is great news, that's the only thing I will say," Kerviel said in a reaction to the ruling. "I will continue to walk."

He told RTL radio later: "It's the end of recreation for bankers and banks. It's the end of impunity. That's how I interpret it.

"I am quite surprised that they prefer to lock me up in prison rather that investigate the destruction of evidence," he added.

Kerviel and his lawyers had launched a high-profile campaign on social media before the case came before the appeal court.

His lawyer Koubbi said his client had received several offers of help and hospitality during his protest march.

When he was passing through Tuscany he was accorded a warm welcome by Marie-Christine Ferre, the widow of poet, composer and singer Leo Ferre.

"It gives us pleasure to help someone who is doing all this distance on foot just to save his skin," she was quoted as saying on the website of Kerviel's official support group.
