… 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. …

‘Delivery vans break pollution rules, emissions up to eight times higher’

DutchNews, May 19, 2016

Delivery vans common on the Dutch roads emit an average of six times the permitted amount of nitrogen dioxide while making their rounds, according to research by scientific institute TNO

Of the 12 types of van tested by TNO just one – the Mercedes Sprinter Euro V1 – remained under the limit of 280 milligrams per kilometre. The rest produced an average of 1,500 milligrammes per metre, the Volkskrant said on Thursday. 

The test involved real-world trials of some 600 kilometres per vehicle, on a variety of roads and driving conditions. Official emissions tests are currently lab based. 

The research was commissioned by the infrastructure minister and was published earlier although the names of the manufactures were kept secret. The Volkskrant used freedom of information legislation to obtain the names. 

TNO told the paper that the vans’ performance cannot be compared with each other because each make differs in size and load and that has an impact on emissions. 

Technical condition

Renault, whose Trafic van was recorded as emitting almost two grammes of nitrogen oxide per kilometres, said the technical condition of the vehicle would have an impact on the test results. ‘The TNO test is non-conclusive because it does not conform to the EU rules,’ a spokewoman told the Volkskrant. 

TNO admitted the van had 100,000 kilometres on the clock, the highest of all the vehicles tested. 

The worst performer in the TNO test was the Opel Vivaro. Opel declined to comment.
