… 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. …

Solar Impulse plane ends transcontinental tour in New York

Deutsche Welle, 7 July 2013

A solar-powered aircraft has completed the final leg of its cross-country journey across the United States, after taking off from California in May. The revolutionary plane is powered by thousands of solar cells.

The experimental Solar Impulse plane, powered by about 11,000 solar cells, completed a transcontinental trip across the United States Saturday evening.

Arriving from Dulles International Airport, the plane touched down at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York at 11:09 p.m. local time, completing the final leg of a journey that started in San Francisco in early May.

The only glitch during the journey was a rip that developed in the fabric of one wings. However, the condition of the aircraft was declared sufficiently stable to continue and the pilot was not in danger.

Despite the malfunction, Swiss pilot Andre Borschberg trumpeted the success of the project.
"It was a huge success for renewable energy," Borschberg said upon arriving at JFK.

Borschberg was met on the tarmac by his compatriot and fellow Swiss pilot Bertrand Piccard, both of whom took turns flying the craft across the country.    

"It was supposed to be the shortest and easiest leg," added Piccard, "but it was the most difficult."

"I'm extremely happy to be here," Borschberg told reporters upon landing. "Every moment is a discovery, an exploration. It's not only about technology, it's about what it means."

The plane runs on four electric propellers powered by solar cells mounted on its 206 foot (63 meter) wingspan. It flies to 30,000 feet (9,144 meters) at a speed of 45 mph (72 kph). Weighing about the size of a small car, it has only the power of a small motorized scooter.

The coast-to-coast US journey made stops in Arizona, Texas, Missouri, Ohio and the capital, Washington.     
The plane's American trip is just the latest in a series of groundbreaking flights. The plane has also done tests flights across parts of Europe. The two pilots are planning a round the world flight in a two-seater solar aircraft in 2015.
