… 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. …

VVD chairman under fire over crematorium deal conflict of interest

DutchNews, April 28, 2017

The chairman of the right-wing Liberal party VVD is under fire for his involvement in a controversial million euro crematorium deal. 

Henry Keizer took over the commercial arm of the Dutch crematorium association in 2012 for €12.5m, even though the company had been valued at €31.5m. 

At the time, he was also an advisor to the association, website Follow the Money revealed last week. But it now transpires that Keizer is also chairman of the association and this allows him to control what information about the 2012 deal is made public. 

Legal experts told the Volkskrant Keizer cannot run a company which operates seven crematoria while at the same time chairing the association, because the association’s statutes make this impossible.

‘It is very odd that he is running the show,’ law professor Tymen van der Ploeg told the paper. ‘His appointment is void. The board must take action.’ 

A spokesman for Keizer told the paper that there is no conflict of interest because Keizer is not primarily involved in running crematoria. 

Keizer himself told a selected group of journalists on Friday that he had acted with ‘complete integrity’. Follow the Money, which broke the story, was refused access to the meeting. 

The VVD has also decided not to refer the claims to its integrity committee.

Dutch king speaks about life, death and happiness in open tv interview

DutchNews, April 27, 2017

Some 4.3 million people watched Wednesday night’s televised interview with king Willem-Alexander in which he talked about his life, the death of his brother Friso and the MH17 disaster. 

The interview, filmed at the king’s home in Wassenaar, was broadcast on both NPO1 and commercial channel RTL4. 

The aim of the interview with presenter Wilfried de Jong was to show the king as a man not a head of state, broadcaster NOS said. The result was described by royalty watchers as ‘relaxed and open’. 

Teenager

In the interview, Willem-Alexander said as a teenager and student he had long had his doubts about the monarchy. ‘I had not accepted, internalised the fact that I would take over this job from my mother,’ he said. ‘I wanted to get to know myself better. You have to know yourself through and through. This is something I am continually impressing on [crown princess] Amalia.’ 

The king said he told his daughters to learn their boundaries. ‘Cross them, make mistakes – as much as possible out of the public eye. That’s what I did, a lot. Parties… all that and more… it is the right thing to do, as long as you don’t do it in the public domain. 

The king said he had benefited from security officials who did not tell his parents what he was up to. He has made the same deal with his daughters’ security staff. ‘It is about the safety of my children, not whether or not we know what they are up to and if that is wrong or right,’ he said. ‘Otherwise you can never develop.’ 

Depression

During the interview, based around videos of the past, the king said he had rarely been allowed to watch television until he reached the age of 14. He also said that he had gone away to school in Wales in the 1980s to escape changes on the home front. His father prince Claus was suffering from depression and his mother had just taken over the throne. It was a difficult time to be a teenager, he said. 

The king spoke about the death of his brother Friso in 2013 after a skiing accident. ‘You only realise what you have lost when it is no longer there,’ he said. ‘He lived in London with Mabel and the children but he was a person to have in the background… if you no longer have that, you miss it. You also sees what happens to a mother who loses a child. They lose part of themselves.’ 

The sorrow of losing Friso helped him understand the sorrow of the relatives of those killed in the MH17 disaster, he said. ‘Of course you understand it,’ the king said. ‘Your world collapses. And that happened to us as well.’ 

Immigration

The interview skirted round the issue of politics but the king did say that he could understand the current debate on immigration. ‘We live in difficult times,’ he said. ‘We have all sorts of problems that could not be spoken about in the past. I understand that this makes people uneasy. The world has changed. Discussion is good. I understand the fear and anger, but it is a halfway house. It can never be the final destination.’ 

Queen Maxima, he said, is ‘my everything. My good fortune at home, my children, I owe everything to her. She is critical but very caring and forgiving if I am occasionally sulky.’ 

At the age of 50, the king said, he was happy in his skin. ‘You don’t need to feel sorry for me,’ he told De Jong. ‘I have a very interesting life. I’m happy with my role, I have more self confidence and that allows me to be myself.’

Amsterdam Arena to be renamed to honour Johan Cruijff

DutchNews, April 26, 2017 

Photo: www.worldofjohancruyff.com/ 
The Amsterdam Arena stadium is to be renamed the Johan Cruijff Arena after the city’s most famous footballer, who died a year ago. 

The plan, first mooted shortly after Cruijff died, has now been agreed by all parties concerned and will be put to the city council, the stadium board and the Ajax board within six months, broadcaster NOS said on Wednesday. 

‘By changing the name, we want to honour the best footballer Amsterdam and the Netherlands ever had,’ the three parties said in a joint statement. 

Cruijff’s family used Twitter to say they are ‘delighted and honoured’ at the news. 

In addition, a square, street or bridge in Amsterdam will also be named after Cruijff. ‘We are convinced this will do justice to the legacy of Johan Cruiff and be a source of inspiration for football players all over the world,’ the statement said. 

Cruijff died of cancer last March 24. Tens of thousands of people signed a petition shortly afterwards calling for the stadium name change.

Fury at Saudi election to UN women's rights group

The decision "is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief," said a watchdog. Saudi Arabia is known for its systematic oppression of women, all of whom are required to have a male guardian.

Deutsche Welle, 25 April 2017


Rights groups were outraged on Tuesday after an announcement from the United Nations that Saudi Arabia was elected to the body's women's rights commission. Activists found it ludicrous that a nation with one of the worst records ofgender equality on the planet would have a representative on the 45-member committee.

According to the website for the UN Commission on the Status of Women, its mission to "promoting women's rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women."

Discrimination against women 'systematic'

The ultra-conservative kingdom imposes strict segregation between men and women who are not related. Women could not vote in local elections until 2015, and domestic violence was first outlawed in 2013. Saudi Arabia retains the distinctions of the being the only country on earth where women are forbidden to drive motor vehicles.

"Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women's rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief," said Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch - an NGO praised by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan for its work it monitoring the international body.

Hiller also took to Twitter to accuse world powers of accepting bribes or making secret deals in order to vote Saudi Arabia onto the commission.


Neuer continued: "Saudi discrimination against women is gross and systematic in law and in practice. Every Saudi woman must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman's life from her birth until death…Why did the U.N. choose the world's leading oppressor of women to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women?"

Not everyone saw the decision as a terrible one, however. Helen Clark, the former prime minister of New Zealand, said it was a sign of good faith to Riyadh that its recent steps towards improving the lives of women should continue.


Other still sought to capitalize on the decision. Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders, who recently made headlines for calling Moroccans "scum" and seeking to end Muslim immigration to the Netherlands, took advantage of the situation to promote his party's agenda. The move was not dissimilar to Wilders' pre-election strategy of suggesting that his anti-Muslim rhetoric was partly to protect the rights of LGBT people in the Netherlands.


Saudi Arabia received 47 votes from the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) to represent the Asian and Pacific states on the women's rights commission from 2018-2022. According to the report by UN Watch, mathematically, this means that at least 15 liberal democracies most of voted for the kingdom during the secret ballot.

A battle for Amsterdam’s boat owners as city shakes up canal cruise licencing

DutchNews, April 25, 2017

Canal cruises are a popular tourist draw

Canal cruises are a popular tourist draw Amsterdam city council is shaking up the system for awarding licences to canal tour operators and dozens of boat owners say they may go bust because their boats are about to be banned. 

Currently tour companies buy a licence for life, but the city council has now said all licences will be awarded for a fixed period only. 

On Monday, the 135 licences for boats longer than 14 metres were handed out. Some 480 boats had applied for a permit in one of two categories – regular or characteristic – to run from 2020 to 2030. 

In particular the owners of characteristic canal boats are furious at the way their boats were judged in a ‘beauty contest’ and say dozens of boats which have been part of the city’s waterways for decades are now being banned. 

Among the casualties of the new system is the Hildebrand dating from 1880 and the oldest passenger boat on the Amsterdam canals. The Soeverein, with a piano and kitchen, will also be banned from the canals from 2020. Boat company ‘t Smidtje, lost all eight licences for its classic canal boats. 

In total, one third of the licences have gone to new companies, city alderman Udo Kock said. The change has been made necessary by EU rules. ‘The closed market we have had for decades is simply unfair,’ Kock told the Parool newspaper. 

From 2020, all boats offering trips to tourists must be fully electric. 

Some three million people take a canal cruise in Amsterdam every year.

The Netherlands must end reliance on fossil fuels, professors say

DutchNews, April 24, 2017


The Netherlands must invest billions of euros in becoming a clean economy without reliance on fossil fuels, a group of 90 university professors say in an open letter in Monday’s Trouw. 

The professors are calling on parliament to undergo a ‘radical change of heart’ and to develop a green economy. ‘The Netherlands is deeply rooted in the fossil economy and the transition to a new, clean economy is the big challenge of the coming decades,’ the letter states. 

The professors make 12 recommendations for the next cabinet. These include closing the last five coal-fired power stations, bringing in road pricing, introducing a carbon dioxide tax for industry and higher taxes on energy intensive and environmentally-damaging production and consumption. 

The professors say some €200bn will need to be invested in the shift to a green economy. As a start, the new cabinet should include a special ministry for energy and climate. The first job for the new environment minister will be to draw up new legislation with concrete targets, the professors say. 

Four parties are currently in talks on forming a new government, including the left-wing green party GroenLinks.

Child porn pastor had told church about his sexual preferences

DutchNews, April 21, 2017    

The Dutch pastor arrested in Cambodia on child pornography charges had told church officials he had a ‘sexual preference’ for young boys, broadcaster NOS said on Friday. 

Officials from the Old Catholic church – a spin-off of regular Catholicism – told a news conference on Friday that he had been ‘open’ about his sexuality 18 years ago while training to be a priest, NOS said. 

The 53-year-old was arrested in Cambodia on suspicion of producing child pornography involving young teenage boys. Nico Sarot, who has been seconded to provide pastoral care at Schiphol airport, is said to have paid the boys, all younger than 15, to pose for him. Police found almost 1,300 nude photographs on his camera and Ipad. 

Church officials said on Friday that Sarot had worked with children, including at youth camps, and parents had not been informed about his sexual preferences. 

He was allowed to continue his training on condition he sought help and that he was closely monitored. This monitoring appears to have failed, given the charges against him, officials said.

Dutch teens are among world’s happiest at home and at school

DutchNews, April 19, 2017

Dutch fifteen-year-olds are among the happiest with their lives and enjoy good relations with their parents and teachers, according to the first OECD report on teenagers’ well-being. 

Among OECD members, Dutch teens are second only to Mexicans in terms of being happy, the new report, carried out by the Pisa organisation, shows. 

On average across OECD countries, most 15-year-olds are happy with their lives, reporting a level of 7.3 on a scale of 1 to 10. 

Over eight in 10 Dutch 15-year-olds feel that they are part of their school community and over nine in 10 say they do not feel like an outsider, well up on the OECD average of 82%. Over 95% said they felt their parents took an interest in their school activities. 

The report also looked at how happy the children of immigrants are at school. It found 83% of students who were born in, or whose parents were born in, Arabic-speaking countries reported feeling that they belong at school, but only 67% of students from Arabic-speaking countries who settled in Denmark reported the same. 

The challenges to students’ well-being are many, and there are no simple solutions. But the findings from Pisa show how teachers, schools and parents can make a real difference, said Pisa director Andreas Schleicher. ‘Together they can attend to students’ psychological and social needs and help them develop a sense of control over their future and the resilience they need to be successful.’

With too few priests, Portuguese women step up

Yahoo – AFP, Thomas CABRAL, April 14, 2017

Reguengos de Monsaraz (Portugal) (AFP) - Facing a shortage of Roman Catholic priests, women churchgoers have stepped in to lead Sunday services in villages in southeastern Portugal, a sign the ageing communities are open to change.

In the tiny church of Carrapatelo, a village overlooking the vineyards of the Reguengos de Monsaraz region, Claudia Rocha stands before a dozen mostly elderly female churchgoers wearing a black dress and sneakers.

Her leather jacket and smartphone sit on the front-row bench as the 31-year-old leads what the church terms "Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest" with ease.

After prayers and church hymns, she makes comments on the day's biblical reading, a form of preaching.

At the end, Rocha hands out communion wafers representing the body of Christ that were blessed by the priest beforehand, but wine is not part of the ceremony.

"This church would be closed if I wasn't here. Who cares if I am a woman, a deacon or a priest? What matters is having someone from the community who maintains our connection with the priest, even when he isn't here," she tells AFP.

No misgivings

A divorced social worker without children, she is one of 16 laypeople -- eight men and eight women -- chosen by Father Manuel Jose Marques to help ensure regular attendance at the seven parishes he presides over.

"It might seem strange and new, but we haven't invented anything here. It's a tool that has long been set out in the Church's guidelines, for cases when it's absolutely necessary," says the 57-year-old priest.

The practice of Sunday services being led by laypeople in a priest's absence take place in a number of countries, including Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Switzerland and the US.

It began in the 1980s, when services were prepared with a priest or ordained clergy member, resembling mass but without the rite of consecrating bread for communion or the Eucharistic prayer.

The Vatican and many clergy members have refused to encourage the practice, fearing a trivialisation of the tradition of Mass.

Father Manuel had no such misgivings.

To him, the need to set up Sunday services without a priest became apparent as soon as he took on his seven parishes around 16 years ago.

Before, there had been three priests for the seven parishes in Reguengos de Monsaraz, a town in the region of Alentejo between Evora and the Spanish border.

He assembled a group of 16 volunteers aged between 24 and 65 from varied backgrounds.

"These are people who have experience with faith and welcoming Christ, and who know how to talk about it," he says, noting he makes no distinction between men and women.

Lay women step in, too, in other rural parts of Portugal, whose population of 10 million is overwhelmingly Catholic but only counts around 3,500 priests for 4,400 congregations.

'Very sensitive subject'

Last August, Pope Francis set up a group to study the role of women deacons in the early days of Christianity.

While he ruled out the possibility of ordaining female priests, the move was considered a potentially historic opening towards a place for women in the Church.

"It is a very sensitive subject, but what we have done is very simple. In this tiny village, we are quite a bit ahead of the Vatican," says Rocha.

The progressive Father Manuel says he believes "women would be very good priests and deacons" but is quick to add: "It's not the opinion of one priest, or even 10 that makes theology."

"We are living in the heart of an open community, the difference between men and women is no longer as strong as it was in the past," says Dora Cruz, who teaches catechism in Campinho, a village of 700 people.

"But women's equality doesn't necessarily come from priesthood," adds the 31-year-old mother and kindergarten teacher.

Members of the congregation approve of having a woman behind the altar.

"People found it strange at first -- a woman leading Mass? But now we're used to it," says Angelica Vital, a 78-year-old pensioner.

"If we're short of priests, I think they should be allowed to marry -- they are men, like any other!" she adds, with a devilish grin.

“… I gave you a channelling years ago when Pope John Paul was alive. John Paul loved Mary, the mother. Had John Paul survived another 10 years, he would have done what the next Pope [The one after the current one, Benedict XVI] will do, and that is to bring women into the Church. This Pope you have now [Benedict XVI] won't be here long.* The next Pope will be the one who has to change the rules, should he survive. If he doesn't, it will be the one after that.

There is a large struggle within the Church, even right now, and great dissention, for it knows that it is not giving what humanity wants. The doctrine is not current to the puzzles of life. The answer will be to create a better balance between the feminine and masculine, and the new Pope, or the one after that, will try to allow women to be in the higher echelon of the Church structure to assist the priests.

It will be suggested to let women participate in services, doing things women did not do before. This graduates them within church law to an equality with priests, but doesn't actually let them become priests just yet. However, don't be surprised if this begins in another way, and instead gives priests the ability to marry. This will bring the feminine into the church in other ways. It will eventually happen and has to happen. If it does not, it will be the end of the Catholic Church, for humanity will not sustain a spiritual belief system that is out of balance with the love of God and also out of balance with intuitive Human awareness.  …”

“ … Spirituality (Religions)

Number one: Spirituality. The systems of spiritual design on your planet are starting to change. This is not telling you that certain ones are going to go away. They're simply going to change. Some of the largest spiritual systems, which you would call organized religion on the planet, are shifting. They're going to shift away from that which is authority on the outside to authority on the inside. It will eventually be a different way of worship, slowly changing the rules while keeping the basic doctrine the same.

The doctrine of the Christ has always been to find the God inside. The teachings were clear. The examples of the miracles were given as an example of what humans could do, not to set a man up for worship as a God. So when that has been absorbed, the teaching of the Christ can remain the teaching of the Christ. It simply changes the interpretation. 

The teachings of the great prophets of the Middle East (all related to each other) are about unity and love. So once the holy words are redefined with new wisdom, the Human changes, not the words of the prophets. In fact, the prophets become even more divinely inspired and their wisdom becomes even more profound.

You're going to lose a pope soon. I have no clock. Soon to us can mean anything to you. The one who replaces him may surprise you, for his particular organization will be in survival mode at that point in time. That is to say that fewer and fewer are interested in starting the priesthood. Fewer and fewer young people are interested in the organization, and the new pope must make changes to keep his church alive. That means that his organization will remain, but with a more modern look at what truly is before all of you in a new energy. It is not the fall of the church. It is instead the recalibration of the divinity inside that would match the worship that goes on. It's a win-win situation. The new pope will have a difficult time, since the old guard will still be there. There could even be an assassination attempt, such is the way the old energy dies hard. That is number one. Watch for it. It's a change in the way spiritual systems work. It's a realignment of spiritual systems that resound to a stronger truth that is Human driven, rather than prophet driven.…”

In total 22 people are due in court on Wednesday charged with making threats against television presenter turned politician Sylvana Simons. 

Thousands of people posted threats and insults against Simons last year, when she took part in anti-Zwarte Piet demonstrations and later announced she was going into politics. 

Simons, who plans to attend today’s hearing to ‘show them I am a human being’, was asked by the public prosecution department to indicate which of the 40,000 posts directed at her had the most impact.

‘I want to see these people, because if you are threatened online, you don’t know where the threat comes from,’ she said. ‘It could be anyone, your neighbour or someone you said hello to on the street. That strengthens the feeling of not being safe.’ 

One of those appearing in court, Freddy Klompmakers from Ter Apel, told broadcaster NOS he regretted making the comment, in which he called protestors, including Simons, ‘apenkoppen’ (monkey heads).

‘I understand she did not like it and I am sorry. I don’t see myself as a racist. I have brown colleagues,’ he told the broadcaster. 

Ben van der Kooi from Rotterdam, by contrast, has no regrets about his online statement in which he said ‘Simons Banana’ should pack her bags and go back to Suriname. 

‘She was born there and I think most Dutch people have had enough of her,’ he told  NOS.

Giant pandas head for the Netherlands, and the bamboo is on order

Two giant pandas destined for a 15-year stay in a Dutch zoo, left China for the Netherlands on Wednesday. 

The plane carrying the pandas, as well as 200 regular passengers, is due to land at Schiphol airport on Wednesday evening, and the giant mammals, behind sheets of plexiglass, will then be introduced to the Dutch public for the first time. 


However, Wu Wen (Beautiful Powerful Cloud) and Xing Ya (Elegant Star) will not be seen by the zoo public for some time because they will first be held in quarantine for up to six weeks. 


The pandas are heading for the Ouwehands Dierenpark zoo in Rhenen which has spent 16 year campaigning to bring pandas to the Netherlands. The zoo invested €7m on a special compound which was given official Chinese approval earlier this year. 


The cost of the new compound plus the €900,000 a year fee means that entrance tickets will be more expensive: visitors will be paying a so-called ‘panda tax’. 


Bamboo


The pandas are expected to go through 500 kilos of bamboo a week, which will be sourced from a bamboo grower in Asten and delivered weekly. The company Bamboo Giant, also supplies the food from a selection of different types of bamboo, for pandas in Vienna and Edinburgh. ‘The pandas are choosy,’ director Bennie Nielen told the NRC. ‘Every week the keepers in Vienna and Edinburg send us an overview of what they have eaten and what they have not touched so the menu can be adapted.’ 


The pandas are accompanied by a keeper and a vet from China who will stay with them for at least three months. And in case the pandas do decide to procreate, the female Wu Wen has a bigger enclosure with room for a baby.



Number of official cases of euthanasia rise 10% in the Netherlands

DutchNews, April 12, 2017    

The number of official cases of euthanasia in the Netherlands rose 10% last year to 6091 and euthanasia now accounts for 4% of total deaths, the regional monitoring boards said on Wednesday. 

In 10 cases, the rules for euthanasia were not followed correctly, most of which involved a failure to properly consult a second doctor, the RTE annual report said. In one case, a doctor was reprimanded for ‘crossing the line’ with a patient suffering from severe dementia. 

Of the total, 87% of assisted deaths involved people with cancer, serious heart or lung problems or diseases of the nervous system such as ALS. 

There were 32 more cases of assisted suicide involving people with dementia, most of whom were in the early stages of the disease. In addition, there were 60 cases involving people with severe psychiatric problems, a rise of four on 2015. 

Demographics

Monitoring committee chairman Jacob Kohnstamm said it is not easy to determine why there has been a rise in overall cases. The demographic make-up of the Netherlands could be one reason for the increase, as could a change of opinion among doctors, he said. 

Some 85% of euthanasia requests are carried out by the patient’s own doctor, usually at home. 

Euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands under strict conditions. For example, the patient must be suffering unbearable pain and the doctor must be convinced the patient is making an informed choice. The opinion of a second doctor is also required. 

Since the legislation was introduced in 2002, there have been a number of controversial cases, including a woman suffering severe tinnitus and a serious alcoholic.
