… 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. …

China calls for peace talks to resume between Israel and Palestinians

Want China Times, Xinhua and Staff Reporter 2014-10-22

A Chinese envoy on Tuesday called on Israel to create the necessary conditions for the resumption of peace talks with Palestinians.

At an open debate of the Security Council on the situation of the Middle East, Liu Jieyi, China's permanent representative to the UN, urged Israel to put an end to the construction of settlements in the West Bank, lift a current blockade on Gaza, and release Palestinian prisoners as soon as possible.

Liu said despite the ceasefire in Gaza, things on the ground remain fragile and the humanitarian situation is worrying. To change it, the envoy said it requires the Palestinian Authority and Israel to work together with the rest of the international community.

"The recurrent conflicts between Hamas and Israel in Gaza show once again that deadlock in talk is bound to aggravate tensions and drag both parties down into a cycle of violence," he said.

Israel and the Palestinians resumed peace talks in July 2013 after a three-year hiatus. The talks stalled in March this year and collapsed in April, with both sides accusing the other of failing to keep commitments. Israel wanted the Hamas, the Palestinian faction currently controlling the Gaza Strip, to demilitarize while Hamas demanded a lift to a blockade on the enclave put in place in 2007.

"We hope that the Palestinians and Israel will make the strategic choice to move towards peace talks, seizing the opportunity of a ceasefire to resume and push forward substantial negotiations so as to achieve an early settlement of the question of Palestine that will eventually create an independent state that enjoys full sovereignty on the basis of the 1967 border, with eastern Jerusalem as its capital," Liu said.

There is a pressing need for reconstruction in Gaza, Liu said, adding that China hopes Israel will cooperate actively with the international community's relief efforts to enable aid to reach the people of the Palestinian territories quickly and smoothly.

China, a firm supporter for peace between Palestinians and Israelis, has been pushing for peace and negotiations in the region, including a five-point proposal for peace presented shortly after the outbreak of the most recent conflict earlier this summer. It has twice provided financial emergency humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza.

Pakistan's Malala receives US Liberty Medal

Yahoo – AFP, 22 Oct 2014

30 Summit in Philadelphia on October 21, 2014 (AFP Photo/Nicholas Kamm)

Malala Yousafzai, the child rights activist and youngest ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, received the Liberty Medal and pledged her $100,000 award to education in her homeland Pakistan.

Yousafzai won the annual prize from the National Constitution Center for her "courage and resilience in the face of adversity and for serving as a powerful voice for those who have been denied their basic human rights and liberties," the NCC said.

The 17-year-old gave a speech outlining her desire to see 57 million children out of school given the right to an education, speaking less than two weeks after winning the Nobel prize with India's Kailash Satyarthi.

"I'm honored to receive this medal," she said in an address peppered with jokes.

"It encourages me to continue my campaign for education and to fight for the rights of every child," she added, announcing the money would go toward education in Pakistan.

She called on countries around the world to stop spending money on weapons and instead invest in their children's futures.

"Education is the best weapon through which we can fight poverty, ignorance and terrorism. So I ask all countries all around the world, let us say no to wars."

The schoolgirl, who currently lives in Britain, rose to prominence in Pakistan by campaigning for girls' right to education.

In October 2012, she was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman and is regarded with suspicion and hatred among many in Pakistan.

Evacuated to Britain, she made a remarkable recovery and today attends school and flies around the world to champion for universal access to education through her Malala Fund charity.

"Malala's courageous fight for equality and liberty from tyranny is evidence that a passionate, committed leader, regardless of age, has the power to ignite a movement for reform," said NCC chairman Jeb Bush.

"Let us all, young and old, strive to be like Malala -- to challenge the status quo and to serve as catalysts for meaningful change."

The Liberty Medal is awarded to people who strive to secure freedom for people around the world.

Past recipients include former presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Nelson Mandela, Shimon Peres, Kofi Annan and Bono.

Australian, Chinese police target assets of corrupt officials

Australian and Chinese police have joined forces to seize the assets of corrupt Chinese officials living in Australia, local media reported on Monday.

Called "Operation Fox Hunt," Australian Federal Police (AFP) together with their Chinese counterparts will take action in the coming weeks, according to Commander Bruce Hill, the manager of the AFP's operations in Asia.

Hill told Fairfax Media that Australia had agreed to assist China in the extradition and seizure of assets of corrupt officials who have fled to Australia with illicit funds running into the hundreds of millions of dollars.

Hill said Australia had been identified by Beijing as one of the most popular outlets for corrupt Chinese money and a number of suspects are naturalized Australian citizens and permanent residents who have laundered money.

"They don't all of a sudden leave overnight and take a bag of money with them. In some cases they're very carefully planned," Hill said.

Hill said some Chinese officials send their spouse and children overseas to shift the money.

"As time goes on, they start to put (their funds) into legitimate assets such as houses and property and shares and bank accounts and then the money becomes their wealth," Hill said.

"But it's never been their money to start with in the first place; it's corrupt money flowing out of China."

The joint Australian-Chinese police operation follows the Chinese government's ongoing and wide-ranging anti-corruption drive.

Transgender troops seek end to US military taboo

For Donna Harding, joining the Australian army was a bid to try to suppress what she had known from an early age -- she was a girl trapped in a boy's body.

"It's quite a common pathway for people who are gender conflicted, trying to fix what we see is wrong with us, and see the military as the way of doing that," Major Harding said.

She was speaking at an unprecedented gathering of transgender troops from foreign armies in Washington, sharing their experiences in the hopes of persuading the Pentagon and the US administration to break perhaps the last taboo -- openly integrating members of their community into the military's ranks.

Eighteen countries around the world expressly allow transgender personnel to serve, including major US allies like Australia, Britain, Canada, Sweden and New Zealand.

But in the United States, despite the 2011 repeal of the divisive "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law, which banned gays from serving openly, there is little talk of extending the same rights to transgender people.

There are an estimated 15,500 transgender people believed to be serving in the US armed forces, but, under the current rules, if they are discovered the military is required to dismiss them.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this year he was open to reconsidering the current ban. But as yet no review is underway, and any move to incorporate transgender people openly into the ranks is likely to stir controversy.

Harding joined the Australian reserve forces in 2000 before entering the regular army in 2004. She said she had "lived under the constant anxiety and fear that someone would find out my secret."

"I've lost count of the number of times it would have been so easy to drive into that oncoming truck," Harding told the audience at the event organized by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), noting that 80 percent of transgender people have contemplated suicide, and some 40 percent have tried it.

Now after transitioning to become a woman, Harding works with the Royal Australian Nursing Corps and says that being "open and authentic is the key to being able to perform your job."

Major Alexandra Larsson, an intelligence officer with the Swedish Air Force, insisted she had been very lucky to receive good support once she plucked up the courage to become a woman, saying she has "the best job in the world."

"The problem today is that it depends on who you are and where you are. And it shouldn't be like that. Everybody should have the same opportunity ... but hopefully people can look at me and say at least 'for her it was possible.'"

Being true to yourself

Key to ensuring that transgender people can be embraced by the army is education, and working so those who undertake the difficult decision can do so with dignity and security.

There is little to suggest that including them has any effect on a military's operational effectiveness.

"Without doubt, the more mature our inclusive policies become, the better our operational delivery becomes, because we have got people who are being themselves, they are being authentic in the workplace, without having to have personal challenges alongside that," said Squadron Leader Sarah Maskell, who promotes equality and diversity in the British Royal Air Force.

Issues such as sharing showers or medical costs and care should be relatively easy to deal with by applying some common sense, the panellists argued.

Sergeant Lucy Jordan, the first person in the New Zealand Defense Forces to become a woman while serving, praised the support she had been given by her commanding officers.

"What my organization gave me, and what we are doing here, is primarily about investing in the most important thing that an organization has: its people."

Jakarta. Indonesians took on their social media accounts to welcome the country’s seventh president, Joko Widodo, who was inaugurated on Monday.

The hashtag #PresidenJokowi has been the top trending topic on Twitter worldwide since Monday morning.

Social media users in Jakarta took to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Path to post pictures of the street celebrations taking place at the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle.

For a while “Jalesveva Jayamahe”, the motto of the Indonesian Navy, also made it onto the worldwide trending topic list, after Joko cited the expression, which is Sanskrit for “In the sea we will triumph,” during his inauguration address to emphasize the importance of Indonesia becoming a global maritime axis.

Various versions of posters depicting Joko moments before his inauguration with quotations have been circulated all over the Internet as well.

Ade Mardiyanti, an Indonesian living in Sydney, posted a picture of her standing next to a television showing footage of Joko’s inauguration ceremony on her Facebook account.

“Chose to stay at home after I finished work only to witness the inauguration of Indonesia’s new president. Rocky road ahead for him. Good luck, Mr. President!” Ade wrote.

Renowned film director Joko Anwar also tweeted several pictures of the celebration.

“Rock n’Roll, Mr. President,” Joko said.

A music concert is scheduled to start at 4 p.m to celebrate the inauguration with a number of musicians including Indonesian rock band Slank and British band Arkarna scheduled to perform. Joko is famous for being a huge fan of heavy metal.

Blow to Japan PM as minister resigns over money scandal

Tokyo (AFP) - Japan's high-profile and telegenic industry minister on Monday resigned over claims she misused political funds, including to buy both votes and make-up, dealing a blow to Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's proclaimed gender reform drive.

Yuko Obuchi -- who, as a 40-year-old woman, is a rarity in a world of Japanese politics dominated by older men -- told a press conference carried live on multiple television channels that parliamentary business had been stalled because of questions over her use of money.

"It is not permissible for me as Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry to have economy and energy policies stalled because of my own problems," she said.

"I will resign and focus on probing what has been called into question," she told reporters after a 30-minute meeting with Abe.

She is the first ministerial casualty of Abe's tenure, which began in December 2012 and has been remarkable for its stability. Most recent governments have been beset by scandals and ineptness.

Her elevation to the cabinet, along with four other women, was seen as part of Abe's bid to boost the role of women in society, a move seen as vital to help plug the holes in Japan's workforce and make better use of a pool of latent talent.

Her promotion was big news when Abe reshuffled his ministerial cards in September, giving a politician with little cabinet experience a powerful portfolio that includes oversight of the energy sector.

There were hopes that, as a mother of two, her family-friendly image would be able to persuade a sceptical public of the case for restarting Japan's mothballed nuclear reactors, amid continuing nervousness over safety following the disaster at Fukushima.

But in Japan's seniority-based political hierarchy there was reportedly also discontent from men who felt they had served their time on the backbenches, and had been passed over for promotion in favour of an inexperienced woman.

Damaging to government

Sadakazu Tanigaki, secretary-general and the number two in Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party, said Obuchi's resignation was "extremely regrettable."

"As Ms Obuchi was symbolic of women's having an active role, I think there will be damage (to the government)," Tanigaki told reporters.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said Abe would move swiftly to replace Obuchi.

Money scandals are not uncommon in Japanese politics, where the pork barrel reigns and rules on spending tend to be slightly opaque, barring little except explicit bribery and vote buying.

Obuchi appeared to have fallen foul of sloppiness in a culture where gift giving is common.

The allegations that felled her surround presents to supporters, including cosmetics and theatre trips worth tens of millions of yen (hundreds of thousands of dollars) over several years, which opponents have painted as "vote-buying".

"Companies and organisations give gifts to people concerned as they engage in economic activities," she told reporters.

"It is part of a politician's job to socialise with various people and expand their network while engaging in political activities. I believe these costs should be approved as expenses for political activities."

However, she acknowledged, there were questions over the accounting for the theatre trips, and she promised a full investigation of the matter under the auspices of an independent lawyer.

Asked if she felt her relative youth and her gender had played a role in the way the scandal emerged, she demurred.

"I only learnt now that this issue could seen in this light," she said.

Matthew message (Channelled by Suzanne Ward, Oct 19, 2014)

Matthew Ward - October 19, 2014

Matthew Ward
With loving greetings from all souls at this station, this is Matthew. For the most part, mainstream media coverage of Ebola is straightforward; but like most major world issues, it is marked by political finger-pointing, particularly regarding the few cases in Spain and the United States. Given your mobile world, the appearance of symptoms several days after onset of the disease and their similarity to symptoms of other maladies, the sickness popping up outside of the heavily-stricken western African countries was inevitable. The heartening aspect is that the medical community has been given a forum to allay fear that the disease can spread out of control. Of course, no one can report that once again the light is insuring that the Illuminati’s intention to create a pandemic and worldwide fear is a failure.

The political penchant for assigning blame is hotter and heavier about ISIS, which isn’t faring at all well insofar reports to allay fear about their intentions, and justifiably so. Those forces will continue to make headway until an allied regional effort stops them, and that will come. The underlying factor, ever-increasing light, will be construed as self-serving interests of neighboring nations, and indeed pragmatism will enter the stage. As leaders who are refraining from active involvement realize that ISIS forces could carry their terror-based “Islam state” across whatever borders they wish, vulnerable countries will jump into the fray.

We know that as those two situations run their respective courses, they are providing many souls the opportunity to work through chosen karmic lessons. Still, it is a sadness for us that some of our Earth family are treating others without a shred of mercy.

Now then, we welcome your many insightful questions and comments about “decade of delay,” years 2007 and 2017, NESARA and how the plan for Earth’s Golden Age came about. To show the interrelatedness of all, we shall connect the dots in prior messages and fill any gaps in that information so you can see the tapestry unfold in its entirety, so to say.

The master plan for Earth’s Golden Age was predicated upon your world’s readiness for international reconciliation and cooperation by your year 2007. It’s not that the cause of the delay began then, but rather that the council had expected your society to have reached that stage of spiritual and conscious preparedness by that time. As we continue, you shall see why the expectations were logical, why they were not met, and why that year on your calendar was pivotal in the council’s timeline. Everything took place beyond your concept of time, but we shall do our best to explain it within a sequential frame of reference.

The plan came about because Gaia, the soul that eons ago embodied in what now is your homeland planet, sent out a call for help. The negativity that had accumulated due to civilizations’ relentless blood-shedding had so diminished Earth’s light that her ability to remain in orbit was severely imperiled. The two previous episodes when the planet’s very life was at stake, the release of amassed negativity happened with such cataclysmic force that all life forms perished. Gaia loved them all, even the people who contributed to the negativity, and each time of departure sorrowed her deeply. This time she wanted her residents not only to survive, but physically ascend with her planetary body, which would be restored to its original pristine health and beauty so all of her life forms could flourish and live together joyously and harmoniously. Her clear vision of that Earth became manifest in the universal continuum.

Accommodating Gaia’s desire and her body’s immediate need to start ridding itself of negativity required a massive amount of light, and God authorized powerful civilizations to provide it. The initial infusion stabilized Earth’s orbit, jarred her loose from deep third density’s entrenched negativity and enabled her to begin ascending. Naturally, that light and all forthcoming from those far distant sources would be available to all of her life forms, too, but how to motivate humankind to peer through the darkness that shrouded the planet so they could “see the light” was quite another matter.

It was at that point the council entered the picture. They accepted the task of inspiring the peoples to take charge of their   ascension by receptivity to the incoming light so they could start generating their own with forcefulness. This was essential for two reasons of equal importance to ascension: Light transforms bodies’ carbon-based cells into the crystalline structure that can survive in vibratory levels that eventually Earth would reach; and by dissolving the “veil” between third density consciousness and soul-level knowledge, the light opens hearts and minds to the spiritual enlightenment that engenders soul growth.

After discussing all the intricacies, complexities and requirements involved—first and foremost that everyone’s free will must be honored in accordance with Creator’s edict to rulers of all the universes—the council came up with a plan. It had to be put into a linear timeframe for your understanding, and since it is your world, it could only be what you want it to be. Therefore, all aspects of the plan had to become part of the collective consciousness, that energy mass of countless thoughts, feelings and deeds that steers activity in Earth’s field of potential and determines what happens in your world.

So a major consideration was how to present the plan in a format that would start people thinking about it. At that time in your history, the United States was considered to be the most globally influential of all countries, making it practical to start there, and so it did—members of that government were inspired to form the National Economic Security and Reformation Act that is commonly known by its acronym NESARA. This legislation has been the dark ones’ target of manifold lies and sabotage, which led to denial of its existence by some who heard of it and to serious misconceptions by others. If you don’t know what NESARA actually encompasses—it is no less than the basis of world transformation and spiritual renewal!—and its evolution through both light and dark passages, please read previous messages that give detailed accounts. [Special NESARA edition, August 13, 2006, provides background information; a number of other messages include additional coverage.]

The provisions of NESARA and all other facets of the plan were developed in the continuum, where what you think of as past, present and future is a series of simultaneous happenings; where souls’ evolutionary station is known by the amount of light they radiate and matching them up according to their interests, innate capabilities and necessary karmic experiencing can be easily arranged. Always pre-birth agreements are made with unconditional love and designed to benefit every soul participating in the shared lifetime, and so it was with the council’s plan, albeit the most unusual and far-reaching ever devised. Never before in this universe had an entire civilization entered into an agreement whereby the vast majority would undertake such a monumental challenge: completing in only one lifetime all third density karmic lessons they needed to achieve balance and evolve spiritually and consciously into fourth density.

This unique opportunity attracted trillions of eager souls, far more than could enter Earth’s population, and those who were selected were apprised of every part of the plan. They knew that after birth they would not remember any of it, but inner guidance would keep them on track via soul-level messages to the consciousness—conscience, intuition, instinct, aspirations and inspirations—because this is true of every physical life. The stunning difference this time was, all participants knew that they would be helping to create in linear time a world that already exists in the continuum by virtue of Gaia’s manifestation. And, all felt certain that they would masterfully perform their chosen roles.

Nevertheless, in the council’s planning of a process unprecedented in speed and scope, they wisely took into account that some of the weaker souls might falter and welcome assistance in addition to the continuous in-beaming of light from distant civilizations, and the plan included several means to handle that contingency. Stronger souls who had shared lifetimes with weaker ones could take upon themselves a portion of those souls’ heavy karma; volunteers for those roles were in fourth or higher densities, and so were the energy healers, psychic intermediaries and receivers of telepathic communication, who would help in their respective ways. A multitude of souls was needed to become way-showers and standard-bearers. Some would intuitively know the truth of information transmitted by messengers in the light and share it with all who were receptive; others would become active in various reform efforts or prepare for professions where they could influence positive changes; and some of the many souls who would exemplify the power of positive thoughts and feelings and the joy of living in godly ways would fill other roles, too.

Surely it is no surprise that you who have stayed steadfast in the light despite obstacles, disappointing setbacks and perhaps scornful disrespect are among the volunteers selected to fill one or more of those roles that have helped so many along their ascension pathway!

Vital to the plan were souls who would create the harsh circumstances the masses needed and when that was completed, join the light forces. Only the most highly evolved beings could be entrusted with those missions, and the council selected the volunteers whose dependability in the most challenging areas of light service had been proven time and again. There was no reason whatsoever to anticipate that they would renege on the latter part of their agreement, but that is what happened. Those individuals had fallen under the spell of the darkness that engulfed the planet and they refused to relinquish their power, control of the masses and fortunes gained illegally or immorally. No amount of urging at soul- and conscious-levels, pledges of assistance or warnings about self-judgment in lifetime reviews convinced them to honor their agreement.

They are the top of the Illuminati, an alliance of disparate groups that own or have infiltrated every organization, institution and corporation that impacts life in your world, from governments to banking and commerce, religions to education and media, military, entertainment, legal and justice systems. The alliance, which is pyramidal with a handful of individuals at the peak and many, many minions at the bottom who have no idea that they are working in league with a malevolent force, also is known to you as the secret government, one world government, new world order, the cabal or the elitists.

Although the council’s timeline for world situations to be greatly improved and the peoples’ burdens eased so they could “see the light” had arrived in your linear time, the Illuminati continued hiding truths and fomenting wars, destruction, disease and impoverishment just as many generations of dark ones had done before them. That didn’t affect Earth’s ascension pace—she entered fourth density right on target as predestined, at the end of 2012—but relentless turmoil and hardships and ignorance of truths have kept most of her peoples within third density’s limited conscious and spiritual awareness.

The billions who are coping with one hardship or injustice piled atop others or are barely surviving cannot imagine anything except the violence, misery, despair and fear in their lives. Troops in combat believe what they have been told: It is your patriotic duty to fight for freedom or it is your responsibility to avenge what was done to your ancestors. The large numbers employed in companies that produce the machinery of war may abhor war’s death and destruction, but their foremost interest is their livelihood that supports their families. Thus, contrary to the council’s expectations of your society’s advancement by 2007, thoughts of a peaceful world where everyone sharing equally Earth’s abundance had but a feeble toehold in the collective consciousness.

Our replying at this point to the numerous readers who have expressed interest in the political future of the United States may seem strange, but you shall see that it is purposeful. The two cited questions are representative of the others: “Will the November elections give Republicans control of Congress?” and “You predicted correctly that Barack Obama would be elected US president in 2008. Will Hillary Clinton become that country’s first female president in 2016?”

We won’t know which candidates will be elected in November until that nation’s voters decide. Since we often have said that the outcome of everything transpiring on Earth is known because it is fait accompli in the continuum, it is natural to wonder why we don’t know who the winners will be. The election results won’t affect planetary ascension one whit and will have little impact on the collective consciousness, which comprises the energy put forth not only by humans, but also every other life form on the planet. Because the winners aren’t significant in those contexts and there is no clarity in Earth’s field of potential, there is no way for us to know who they will be. As for the 2016 presidential election, so much will take place during the next two years that even hazarding a guess about who will want to run for the office would be senseless and futile.

We did not predict, we stated with certainty that Barack Obama would be elected, and this brings us back to why 2007 was a pivotal year: That is when thoughts about his being a potential US presidential candidate entered the collective consciousness. The soul that embodied as Barack Obama was chosen to lead your world into Gaia’s long-awaited era of peace, so it was essential that thoughts and feelings favoring him as president emerge, then keep increasing until the energy momentum was unstoppable. The voters’ decision to elect him the following year was as predestined as surely as was Earth’s ascension.

Let us tell you why a personage of this soul was Gaia’s and the council’s choice. After the soul originated in a fourth density civilization, its lineage became universally respected as personages evolved into seventh density through multiple lifetimes of leading conflicted peoples into harmonious cooperation and assisting in civilizations’ advancement. Personages were instrumental in ending wars between civilizations as well as between warring factions within a population; others were members of universal consultancy councils for upgrading civilizations’ educational, governing or justice systems; and many held topmost positions in highly evolved worlds. Barack Obama is innately endowed with that cumulative wisdom, knowledge and experience, and lifelong he has followed soul-level guidance to fulfill the peace mission he doesn’t consciously know he accepted prior to birth.

Had the souls who came in to create havoc for the masses—and indeed did—not reneged on their agreement to join the light forces afterwards, the timeline in the Golden Age master plan would have prevailed. By now Obama would have completed much of his presidential mission and your society would be well on the way to living peacefully. Instead, he inherited two wars and now is combatting the terrorism that in no small part is their offspring. And, despite the light’s immense headway in weakening the Illuminati’s global network, they retained enough power within and beyond the Congress to doom most of Obama’s visionary initiatives, and their efforts to keep the negativity of divisiveness alive and thriving in your society have been aided unwittingly by his political adversaries. The United States has no monopoly on this—very few governments in your “free” world have been free of Illuminati influence, and most are beset with competitive members who produce stalemates instead of progress.

By no means are we saying that everyone should have the very same idea about governance or any other issue—it is by assimilating the diversity of ideas, cultures and philosophies that a civilization is enriched and advances! What we are saying is that many souls who clamored to participate in significant roles to usher in the era of peace have not done what they felt certain they would: make choices in fulfillment of their chosen missions. This is both the cause and the effect of the ten-year delay.

Beloved sisters and brothers, please don’t translate “delay” into “it could take forever!” as one reader wrote. There are myriad areas throughout your world where betterment is flourishing thanks to dedicated individuals, civic groups or national and international organizations. Mainstream media are expanding reports of such stories and there is a plethora of heartening information in televised interviews, documentary films, conferences, workshops, books, magazines and the Internet. Of course not all of you can actively take part in those kinds of forward-moving endeavors—most of you didn’t sign up to do that anyway—but feeling grateful for these successes, excited about them and optimistic about Earth’s future sends forth a profusion of light. Light, the same energy as love, is the key to manifesting fuller realization of the council’s Golden Age plan.

Now then, just as there was no evidence of a dramatic event when Earth entered fourth density, nothing profound will be evident as 2017 nears its end and the planet enters the density’s higher “layers.” There is no demarcation between those just as there is none between the densities themselves, which we number only to indicate advancement in location or spiritual and conscious awareness. Energy simply flows hither and yon in accordance with the vibrations emitted by its attachments that include all the thoughts and feelings constantly shooting up from Earth, and ascension is moving into areas where the vibrations are higher, or faster, than where you were previously. However, at times celestial alignments produce energy surges that rapidly propel orbiting bodies into higher astral planes, and such will be the case the latter part of your year 2017, which coincides with the decade of delay reaching its end. During the interim Earth will be traveling through increasingly high vibrations that will birth new changes and add impetus to all underway.

Our beloved Earth family, if we knew when the major changes you asked about will come to pass, we would rejoice in telling you—our last message explained why we don’t know. Even God doesn’t know. Let me speak for myself for a moment to give you a little illustration about foreknowledge of free will choices. Several years ago, when two men were courting my sister, my mother asked God which she would choose or neither. God said, “I don’t know.” My mother asked how He could not know since she is a part of Him, and God replied,“Yes, and as soon as she knows, so will I.”

Lighted souls throughout the universe are with you in spirit, cheering you ever onward, and some are right there beside you on your ascension pathway.

LOVE and PEACE

Top Iranian human rights lawyer barred for three years

Tehran (AFP) - Award-winning Iranian human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh told AFP Sunday that she has been barred from practising for three years and will hold a protest against the decision this week.

Sotoudeh was released from jail last year when halfway through a six-year sentence for "actions against national security and committing propaganda against the regime".

She said the ban was a threat to the legal profession but she would not appeal. Instead, she will conduct a sit-down protest outside the Iran Bar Association's headquarters in Tehran, starting Tuesday.

"The tribunal made this illegal decision at the demand of a court based at Evin Prison," the Tehran jail where she served her sentence, Sotoudeh said by telephone.

"This ruling opens the way for the disqualification of other lawyers in the future," she added.

Sotoudeh was released in September 2013 shortly before Iran's then newly elected President Hassan Rouhani attended the UN General Assembly in New York.

A court last month authorised Sotoudeh -- who won the European parliament's prestigious Sakharov rights prize in 2012 -- to resume her practice.

She has defended journalists and rights activists including Nobel Peace laureate Shirin Ebad. When in jail she staged two hunger strikes, in protest at the conditions at Evin and on a ban against seeing her son and daughter.

Hailing from a religious middle class family, Sotoudeh was among the few Iranian lawyers to take on high-profile rights and political cases, including juveniles facing the death penalty, before her arrest in 2010.

At the time of her release last year Iranian media reported that around a dozen political prisoners rounded up for involvement in 2009 anti-government protests had also been freed.

Among them were ex-deputy foreign minister Mohsen Aminzadeh, reformist politician Feyzollah Arabsorkhi and journalist Mahsa Amirabadi.

They were among thousands jailed after the disputed re-election of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad led to a deadly regime crackdown.

The election of Rouhani last summer came after he pledged to improve civil rights in Iran.

In New York at this year's opening of the UN General Assembly the reform-minded leader denied that human rights were worsening in Iran and said he remained committed to his pledges.

Three US citizens are currently being held in Iran, a former Marine arrested three years ago accused of espionage, a Christian pastor and Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post's Tehran correspondent.

In June, a British-Iranian woman, Goncheh Ghavami, 25, was also arrested when she went to watch a men's volleyball game. She went on trial last week and a ruling is expected within days.

Vatican and Vietnam edge closer to restoring diplomatic ties

Free Malaysia Today – AFP, October 19, 2014

Vatican City: Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung met Pope Francis in Rome Saturday with both saying they were committed to restoring diplomatic relations.

The country’s communist regime broke off diplomatic ties with the Vatican in 1975, but both sides have been working on warming relations since 2007.

The meeting marked “an important step in the process of reinforcing relations between the Holy See and Vietnam”, a Vatican statement said after the meeting.

The Vatican said it welcomed the support of the Vietnamese authorities for the Catholic community, which makes up around seven per cent of the country’s population of 89 million.

During his five-day visit to South Korea in August — his first trip to Asia — the pope called for communist countries Vietnam and China, which do not have formal ties with the Vatican, to accept a “dialogue” with Rome, insisting that Catholics did not view Asia with the mentality of “conquerors”.

The Vatican had earlier hailed the “positive developments” from talks between the two sides held in Hanoi on September 10 and 11.

The papal nuncio in Singapore, Leopoldo Girelli, has been the Vatican’s “non-resident pontifical representative” to Hanoi since 2011.

The pope is keen for the Church to tap into Asia, a continent where the number of Catholics, currently just 3.2 percent of the population, is rocketing.

A Beijing court sentenced a former senior railways official to death with a two years reprieve on charges of taking bribes on Friday.

The Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People's Court also deprived Zhang Shuguang, former head of the railways ministry's transportation bureau and deputy chief engineer, of political rights for life and confiscated all his property.

His deputy Su Shunhu, was also given life imprisonment, deprived of political rights for life and had all his property confiscated.

Zhang has not said if he is planning an appeal after the morning hearing.

According to the court, Zhang took bribes worth more than 47 million yuan (US$7.7 million) from 14 companies between 2000 and 2011, when he served in a variety of positions in the ministry.

He helped companies with contracts relating to the sale of trains or parts, technical supply and the bidding of projects, the court said.

On Su's part, the court found he took bribes worth more than 24 million yuan (US$3.9 million) from three companies between 2003 and 2011.

The court made judgments while considering both defendants voluntarily made a confession on undiscovered bribery and showed sincere regret over their wrongdoing.

Zhang is the second high-ranking railways official charged with bribery in China after former railways minister Liu Zhijun was sentenced to death with a two-year reprieve for bribery and abuse of power in July.

Malaysia Calls for SE Asian Cooperation on IS Threat

Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia’s defense minister has labelled efforts by a US-led coalition to push back the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria “ineffective”, and called for regional cooperation to prevent jihadists gaining a foothold in Southeast Asia.

“Air strikes by the United States and its allies [against IS in Syria and Iraq] appear to be ineffective for now. So, we need to consider our own approach,” Hishammuddin Hussein was quoted as saying in The Star newspaper.

“We cannot work in isolation. We need to work with our friends and our neighbors,” he said, speaking on Thursday.

Citing neighbors Indonesia — the world’s most populous Muslim nation — the Philippines and Brunei, Hishammuddin said the region needed more intelligence-sharing and other cooperation on the IS threat.

Hishammuddin also lamented hesitation in the Arab world in condemning the group.

“The silence from Arab states is quite deafening when it comes to the IS issue,” he said.

Concern is growing in Southeast Asia over the potential for the Islamic State to gain followers in the region.

Authorities in Malaysia, which has traditionally practiced a moderate brand of Islam, said they arrested 14 people this week, including a government engineer, for suspected links to the extremist group.

Those arrested included IS supporters who sought to recruit Malaysians and to arrange for their travel to Syria, according to police.

All told, Malaysian authorities say around three dozen have been detained this year for having IS-related activities.

At least 40 Malaysians are believed to have left for Syria.
