… 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. …

Norway to act as flagship for Tesla sales in Europe

Gigaom.comKatie Fehrenbacher  AUG. 7, 2013

Tesla said on Wednesday in its Q2 earnings report that it has delivered its first Model S cars to customers in Europe in Norway, Switzerland and the Netherlands. The electric car company said that in the second quarter it made “several hundred” Model S cars for service loaners, customer test drives and deliveries to customers in Europe.

The first car was delivered in Oslo, Norway (picture below), according to Tesla’s twitteraccount.

Tesla OsloNorway will act as a flagship market of sorts. Just this year, Tesla expects to deliver 800 cars to Norwegian customers. Tesla is also building out its Supercharger network around Norway, and says its chargers will cover 80 percent of the population. One of the first Tesla Supercharger stations in Europe is being built in Cinderella, Norway, according to the Tesla twitterfeed.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk also noted in an earnings call this week that Norwegian buyers will be interested in the new “sub zero package,” which has add-ons like wiper blade defrosters.



Tesla has a final assembly plant in Tilburg, in the Netherlands, and has its EU headquarters in Amsterdam. In the coming weeks Tesla will open a new retail design store in Brussels, London and Amsterdam.

Musk also said that because Tesla is now production constrained (instead of demand constrained), they aren’t really trying to push sales all that hard in Europe yet. “If you order a car in Europe [now], you’ll get it maybe in November.” Right now we need to make sure our entry into Europe is smooth, service centers are there and the people who manage them are well trained, noted Musk.

In terms of the volume of the overall European market, Musk said that conservatively he thinks Model S sales will be at least half as good as the sales in North America. However, they could possibly be as good as sales in North America, he added.
