… 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. …

Dutch PM says he will ‘build a fine relationship’ with Trump

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte described his meeting with US president Donald Trump at Thursday’s Nato meeting in Brussels as ‘fine’, adding that he expects ‘to build up a fine relationship with him’. 

Trump had used his speech at the Nato meeting to lecture world leaders for failing to spend enough on defence, leaving the ‘taxpayers of the United States’ to make up the shortfall. 

The Netherlands is one of the countries which do not meet the commitment to spend 2% of GDP on defence. To meet the target, the Netherlands would have to spend an extra €2bn a year, RTL news said. 

‘It will be an important element in the cabinet formation talks,’ 

Rutte said. ‘I have already said we are working towards it. But you cannot do this in one go.’ Rutte declined to comment on Trump’s criticism, saying he did not wish to give a review of the president. ‘There would be no point,’ he said. ‘Every country chooses their own head of state.’

Pensioners increasingly forced to take on part-time work

DutchNews, May 25, 2017


More pensioners are being forced to take on part-time jobs in order to make ends meet, Trouw has reported. 

The number of pensioners with extra jobs has tripled to 180,000 since 2003, the paper said. 

Temps agency 65-plus reports increasing numbers of retirees seeking work in order to top up their income. ‘In the past a lot of pensioners came looking for jobs because they wanted to keep busy in their retirement. But now many of them tell us they want a job because they need one financially,’ said spokesman Bart Veltman. 

But not all pensioners are seeking a job for the extra income, research bureau ROA’s Didier Fouarge explained. ‘Some of them like to keep on working. It keeps them fit.’

Dutch banks tighten rules for trust offices after Panama Papers

DutchNews, May 22, 2017

Dutch banks have been sharpening up regulations for trust offices and their customers ever since the publication in April 2016 of the Panama Papers – millions of leaked documents about offshore entities. 

Details of the changes were found in internal documents of Holland Quaestor, the sector lobby group, obtained by the Financieele Dagblad the paper said on Monday. 

The documents show banks have become more critical about payments made through their own bank accounts, the FD said. Holland Quaestor noted in March that banks are opening far fewer accounts for letterbox companies. Moreover, charges for these accounts have risen sharply. 

The tougher treatment was an initiative of the banks themselves and the Dutch central bank DNB which holds a supervisory role over the trust sector, the paper points out. 

Trust offices have been under fire for many years and are often used to avoid tax and bring companies other benefits. Through them there is a risk of money laundering and involvement in terrorism, the FD said.

Ede is the happiest Dutch town and Rotterdam is bottom of the list

People who live in the Dutch countryside are happier than those who live in towns, according to the latest edition of the Atlas voor Gemeenten – an atlas covering a broad spectrum of information about the 50 biggest Dutch local authority areas. 

The new edition, published on Thursday, includes a ‘happiness map’ and shows that having a job (whether paid or unpaid), friends and good health are key to good fortune. But the map also shows that the residents of the Netherlands four big cities are less happy than those living in smaller towns. 

The happiest place to live is the Gelderland town of Ede, where 89% are pleased with their lot, followed by Alphen aan den Rijn and Amstelveen. Rotterdam comes bottom of the list with a happiness rating of 82%.

‘Cities attract people who are looking for happiness,’ researcher Gerard Marlet told broadcaster NOS. ‘They think they will find a suitable partner, a job, or more fun things to do in their spare time. But this does not mean they will be happier than they were before.’ 

Rich, white, well-educated, married Christian pensioners with children who no longer live at home are most likely to say they have found good fortune, the Atlas shows.

New sea lock access to Amsterdam port coming in well below budget

IJmuiden. Photo:
The new sea lock being built in IJmuiden which will improve access to the port of Amsterdam will be delivered well below budget, it was revealed in the Parool on Wednesday. 

The lock, which will be the largest in the world when it is completed in 2019, will cost Amsterdam about €60m less than expected, with the city paying only €47m instead of €105m, the paper said. 

National government will bear the lion’s share of the costs, put at €565m while Noord-Holland province’s share is €39m, down from the original €57m. 

The new lock was made necessary because ships are getting bigger and the current lock needed an upgrade. The new lock will be 70 meters wide by 500 meters long, considerably larger than the present Noordersluis, dating from 1929, which is 400 meters long and 40 meters wide.

Living longer: Dutch centenarian population doubles in 20 years

DutchNews, May 17, 2017

On 1 January, there were 2,225 people over the age of 100 living in the Netherlands, 142 more than on the same date in 2016 and more than double the total of 20 years ago, the national statistics office CBS said on Wednesday. 

The number of people passing the 100 mark equates to 128 per million inhabitants. As rosy as the figures may appear to be, the Netherlands is ranked only 18th in Europe. The European list is topped by Greece (565 per million), Portugal and France. 

The CBS says the number of centenarians in the Netherlands is expected to pass the 4,000 mark in 2031. Women account for twice as many of the over-100s as men. 

The number of people in the Netherlands passing the 80-year mark also increased but at a slower pace to 642,000 per million in the past 20 years. The number of people in  their 90s rose by 90% to 112,000 per million.

“… Cell Division - a static process?

Let me take you to the cellular division process. We've said this before, but you need to hear this to understand how it works. A cell is ready to divide. The Human body is designed to rejuvenate... all tissue. You've been told that there's some tissue that does not rejuvenate, but that is incorrect. It all rejuvenates at different speeds at different times and in different ways. It rejuvenates. So now you know that the Human body is designed to live a long time. Unfortunately, the energy that you have created on this planet and what you've gone through, has beat it up. You don't live much more than 80 years. That was not the design.

The Biblical personalities were sometimes prophets and sometimes masters and sometimes just there... and lived for hundreds of years. Did they really? Or perhaps this is that just a metaphor? Did they get that right in the Bible without a error in transcription? I'm going to tell you the truth. It's very accurate. Thousands of years ago you lived a very long time, Lemurian. If you knew your lifespan, you'd gasp. But not anymore. Instructions have been given over time to DNA, literally, by the energy of the planet... en energy that you have created through consciousness.

A cell divides. Right before it divides, it needs the blueprint to clone itself. The blueprint is available from the stem cell. The stem cell gets its information from the quantum part of the DNA, which has never changed since you were born. It's remained static, since nothing has ever changed it... and the fact that you don't believe it's changeable and have just accepted aging. There's not a conscious effort to do anything with it, and it just lays there like it always did.

The diving cell "talks" to the stem cell and says, "Do the same thing you always did? Change anything?" And the stem cell talks to the cell that is dividing, saying, "Make another one just the same." Then you rejuvenate just like the last one, accepting everything you received when you were born.  …”

“… With free choice, the percentage of DNA efficiently started to go down as humanity grew. As soon as the DNA started to lose percentage, the gender balance was dysfunctional. If you want to have a test of any society, anywhere on the planet, and you want to know the DNA percentage number [consciousness quota] as a society, there's an easy test: How do they perceive and treat their women? The higher the DNA functionality, the more the feminine divine is honored. This is the test! Different cultures create different DNA consciousness, even at the same time on the planet. So you can have a culture on Earth at 25 percent and one at 37 - and if you did, they would indeed clash. …”

“… You're at 35. There's an equality here, you're starting to see the dark and light, and it's changing everything. You take a look at history and you've come a long way, but it took a long time to get here. Dear ones, we've seen this process before and the snowball is rolling. There isn't anything in the way that's going to stop it. In the path of this snowball of higher consciousness are all kinds of things that will be run over and perish. Part of this is what you call "the establishment". Watch for some very big established things to fall over! The snowball will simply knock them down. …”

The VVD broke tax rules with four of its charity organisations: NRC

DutchNews, May 17, 2017

The right-wing Liberal VVD has failed for years to publish the financial status of four of its Public Benefit Organisations (PBOs), an investigation by the NRC has shown. 

Gifts to PBOs are income and corporate tax deductible and donors are exempt from gift and inheritance tax. In return the organisations are required to publish how much they receive in donations. 

One of the organisations involved, the Ivo Opstelten Foundation, falls directly under the responsibility of the VVD party leadership headed by Henry Keizer. Keizer had to temporarily renounce the party chairmanship while the VVD investigates a possible conflict of interest concerning the takeover of a crematorium. 

VVD-affiliated fund raising organisations in Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht also failed to provide figures on how much money was received. The requirement has been in place since 2014. The tax office has since taken away the special status from a number of organisations for non-compliance with the rules. 

The tax office, which does not comment on individual cases, did not say why the VVD PBOs were allowed to keep their status but a spokesperson told the NRC that monitoring PBOs is generally ‘very labour intensive’. It is thought the lack of proper control, which is the responsibility of acting VVD junior finance minister Eric Wiebes, is costing the treasury in the region of half a billion euros a year. 

At the beginning of 2014 the party, which had always been less transparent about donations than other parties, promised more financial transparency but since the Henry Keizer took over as chairman the opposite has been true, the NRC found. 

Instead of more financial details, the party annual report is ‘designed in such a way as to contain less information about VVD affiliated organisations’, the paper claims. 

Two of the discredited organisations published their figures after the NRC contacted them while the chairman of another claimed to have ‘forgotten’ to do so. 

The party leadership said the publication of the Ivo van Opstelten Foundation’s figures ‘accidentally slipped through’. ‘We think it is of the utmost importance that the rules are strictly adhered to’, a spokesman told the paper.

Ahold under fire for moving brand names like Etos to Switzerland

DutchNews, May 16, 2017

Photo: Ahold

The FNV trade union federation has asked supermarket group Ahold Delhaize to explain why it has shifted ownership of 350 brand names such as Etos to a Swiss subsidiary named Ahold Licensing Sarl. 

The union asked the multinational investigation bureau Somo to look into Ahold Delhaize’s tax strategy and says it suspects the move is due to tax avoidance. 

Swiss corporation tax is much lower than that in the Netherlands and the US, where Ahold Delhaize earns 60% of its turnover. Most of the brands which have been moved to Switzerland are American. 

Ahold told the Volkskrant that the conclusions in the report are ‘up to them’. ‘The report is based on incomplete information and information which has been taken out of context,’ the company said in a statement.

Amsterdam licences new brothel to be run by prostitutes themselves

DutchNews, May 16, 2017

One of the buildings which has now
been turned back into a brothel.
A brothel partly run by prostitutes themselves is set to open in Amsterdam, several years after the idea was first mooted. 

Amsterdam city council handed over the formal licence for the brothel to the organisers on Tuesday, who can now begin to interview potential prostitutes to work in the heart of the city’s notorious red light district. 

The brothel, which has 14 windows, is housed in four buildings bought by the city some 10 years ago from red light district lynch pin Charles Geerts. The rooms were designed with input from prostitutes themselves and some include a bath and other facilities. 

The brothel has been advertising its services since last year when the city council approved the original plans. No prostitutes have yet been signed up but spokeswoman Justine Le Clercq told broadcaster NOS lots of people have expressed an interest. 

‘Women with different backgrounds have got in touch with us and we’ve had an email from a man as well,’ she said. 

In the original plans, prostitutes themselves were set to run the brothel but that work is now being done by a foundation called My Red Light. The board includes people who know the industry well while prostitutes themselves make up the advisory board. 


The prostitutes will be treated as freelancers and can rent a room within the building. Trouw put the prize at €80 for a day shift and double that at night and in the evening.

‘Sex workers will determine their own rental terms and working hours,’ supervisory board member Marieke de Ridder told the Guardian. ‘There will also be more social control, because the sex workers in My Red Light will be more involved with each other.’ 

The city council has been trying to combat human trafficking and exploitation in the red light district since 2007 and has bought out several notorious brothel keepers. Over 100 windows have been closed. 


Not everyone is convinced that the project is a good idea. Prostitution researcher Karin Werkman told the Guardian that prostitution is a form of sexual exploitation, and even in a controlled environment there can be no guarantees of ‘clean’ prostitution. 

‘The only people who benefit from this are the sex buyers. They can tell themselves that by going to this place they are making use of ‘clean’ prostitution. But that really is an illusion,’ she said. 

However, Amsterdam’s mayor Eberhard van der Laan told the rest of the city council last week he hopes the project will inspire others to better take the wishes of sex workers into account. 

‘The fact that sex workers are going to run a prostitution company themselves is an important next step in the normalisation of sex work,’ the mayor said.

Rotterdam city centre packed with Feyenoord fans to celebrate league title

DutchNews, May 15, 2017

So many people packed into central Rotterdam to celebrate Feyenoord’s first league title in 18 years that police urged fans to stay at home. 

The city council estimates some 140,000 people turned out to greet the team, who beat Heracles 3-1 at home on Sunday, thanks to a hat trick from Dirk Kuijt. 

‘You’ve waited for this for 18 years and you never gave up,’ team captain Kuijt told the crowd from the balcony of city hall. Coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst said he was proud that ‘we can all celebrate as Rotterdammers together’ while singer Lee Towers let the massed crowds in singing ‘You’ll never walk alone’. 

Rotterdam mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb described the atmosphere as ‘extremely happy’ and said the win is a gift to the entire city. 

The Eredivisie title, the first for the club since 1999, gives Feyenoord direct entry into next season’s Champions League competition, which will bring in some €12m in television rights, plus up to a further €9m in the group stage.

 Ajax, who ended the season just one point behind Feyenoord, will take part in the third qualification round of the Champions League competition in an effort to qualify for the group stage.

Dutch ministers vote for two-year ban on lobbying their own ministry

DutchNews, May 15, 2017

The Hague. Photo:
The caretaker Dutch cabinet has approved new rules to try to stop former ministers taking up new jobs as lobbyists in a similar field. 

The measure, approved by ministers at last week’s cabinet meeting, will stop ex ministers having ‘business contacts’ with their old department for two years. 

This is to stop them ‘using their knowledge and position in an undesirable way to promote the interests of an organisation where they have gone to work after leaving,’ home affairs minister Ronald Plasterk said. 

There have been several cases of former ministers using their parliamentary contacts to lobby new officials. A year ago, former foreign affairs minister Ben Bot came under fire when he lobbied for a export permit for a shipping firm he had been hired to represent. 


Other examples include economic affairs minister Maxime Verhagen who became head of the construction sector lobby group within a year of leaving the ministry and transport minister Camiel Eurlings who joined airline KLM. 

MPs had also called for measures to stop the revolving door between ministries and the private sector. The defence ministry already had a two-year lobby ban. 

Socialist MP Ronald van Raak welcomed the new move but said it does not go far enough. The ban does not affect MPs or senior civil servants and does not apply to trade missions, he pointed out in the NRC. In addition, the secretary general of a ministry can also suspend the measure on a temporary basis.

China hosts Silk Road summit in shadow of North Korea missile

Road Forum, in Beijing, on May 14, 2017 (AFP Photo/Greg Baker)

China touted on Sunday its new Silk Road as "a project of the century" at a summit highlighting its growing leadership on globalisation, but a North Korean missile test threatened to overshadow the event.

President Xi Jinping was preparing to host leaders from 29 nations for the two-day summit in Beijing when US and South Korean military officials confirmed that Pyongyang had launched a ballistic missile.

Delegations from North Korea and the United States were expected at the forum, though not their leaders. Few Western heads of government made the trip.

The summit is showcasing Xi's cherished One Belt, One Road initiative, a revival of the Silk Road that could cement China's growing global clout on trade and geopolitics.

"This is indeed a gathering of great minds," Xi said, addressing leaders including Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Xi pledged to pump an extra $124 billion in funds into the initiative, calling it "a project of the century" in a "world fraught with challenges".

Road trade routes (AFP Photo)

The Chinese-bankrolled project seeks to link the country with Africa, Asia and Europe through an enormous network of ports, railways, roads and industrial parks.

The initiative spans some 65 countries representing 60 percent of the world population and around a third of global gross domestic product. The China Development Bank has earmarked $890 billion for some 900 projects.

The project is seen as a practical solution to relieve China's industrial overcapacity. But it could also serve Beijing's geopolitical ambitions as Washington retreats into "America First" policies.

While Xi did not mention North Korea during his speech to the delegates, the Chinese foreign ministry issued a statement saying it opposes such missile tests.

It urged all parties to "exercise restraint and refrain from further aggravating the tension in the region".

North Korea relies heavily on trade with China for its economic survival, and US President Donald Trump has urged Xi to use that leverage to put pressure on Pyongyang.

The White House called on all nations to impose "far stronger sanctions" following the latest test, which came days after South Korea elected a new president.

Sunday's missile launch "is absolutely an embarrassment to Beijing but it also shouldn't be overstated", Christopher Balding, economics professor at Peking University, told AFP.

"This will not overshadow (the summit) in an enormous way but it will absolutely continue to raise US frustrations with Beijing," he said, adding that Washington was "frustrated" that North Korea was also invited to the summit.

Respecting sovereignty

Xi focused on his initiative, boasting that it represented a "road for peace", but he cautioned "all countries should respect each others' sovereignty... and territorial integrity".

He warned that "isolation results in backwardness".

The new financing that he promised on Sunday includes 100 billion yuan ($14.5 billion) for the Silk Road Fund and lending schemes worth 380 billion yuan. He also urged financial institutions to contribute 100 billion yuan.

Praising Xi's initiative, Putin warned that "protectionism is becoming the norm".

"The ideas of openness, trade freedom are rejected more and more, very often by those who were their supporters not so long ago," Putin said.

For his part, Erdogan said Belt and Road was "going to be the kind of initiative that will put an end to terrorism".

Indian concerns

Some Belt and Road projects are raising concerns in certain countries.

India has voiced displeasure at the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, a Belt and Road project aimed at linking northwestern China to the Arabian Sea.

The route cuts through Gilgit and Baltistan in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, disputed territory that India claims is illegally occupied.

Human Rights Watch raised fears on Saturday about the treatment of people along the new Silk Road route in Central Asian nations with poor track records in infrastructure projects.

The US-based organisation said Chinese authorities have "heightened surveillance and repression to prevent potential unrest that could impede" Belt and Road plans in the western Xinjiang region.

Video: Dutch tv documentary claims Trump has ties to Russia mobsters

DutchNews, May 13, 2017

Dutch television current affairs show Zembla is claiming that US president Donald Trump has extensive connections to Russian oligarchs and even to convicted gangsters. 

The 45-minute documentary looks at Trumps alleged relationship with Russian mobster Felix Slater and agreements he has with rich Russians. 

‘The Russians are alleged to be in possession of sensitive information about Trump. And that exposes Trump to blackmail,’ the programme makers say.  

‘Fake news, tweets Trump: “I have nothing to do with Russia – no deals, no loans, no nothing!” Trump swears he has no ties with the Russians. But is that actually the case?’ the programme asks.

".... The Wild Card of 2016

Remember: No emotion now. You have come from another planet and you’re looking at the end of 2016 – and there is the election. Understand without bias.

So for 2016, let’s do the numerology. You add the numbers and get nine. Nine is completion in simple numerology, and when you see a nine it often means the completion of something. Often it is of a time cycle, an energy or the completion of a paradigm. But it’s very strong.

The nines are stronger than many of the other numerological aspects and you feel them. The president-elect (at this writing) is a strong wild card. He is scheduled to become the 45th president. What a coincidence! Forty-five is a nine. A nine and a nine together are more than significant. They tell a story about what is happening. I will tell you something else. This story is not finished yet and there is more coming. You don’t know what you don’t know, so don’t make up your mind in advance about any outcomes. You’re from another planet, remember? There’s no emotion, no bias, no politics and nothing to judge. Look at it for what it is.

A big stick has just been inserted into what is normal and it’s going to be turned. As the big stick turns, other things will respond that never would have responded otherwise. I wish to tell you, dear one, old soul, relax with upcoming wild cards. They do what they do on purpose so that you will have a better civilization in the future. Sometimes they show you what won’t work, and sometimes they change paradigms that would have never changed otherwise. But what you have now is a profound wild card. That is the message.

It’s so common for you to respond certain ways when you are invested in the process. The knee-jerk reaction is expected or you wouldn’t be a Human. However, for this lesson, you’re from another planet and you’re looking down and you’re seeing it. Pretend.

Isn’t that interesting about a nine and a nine together? It means that truly the end of something is here. Perhaps it’s the end of the old way things were done? Perhaps it’s a shake-up of the system so it can correct itself? Don’t dare make up your mind where it’s going, because it’s not finished yet. However, wait a moment. Did you also realize that 2017 is a “one” year? Not only is the energy one of completion with a double nine, but it moves into “a new beginning” (the definition of a one in numerology).

I have more to tell you about numerology, and also something that will be clearer about this whole situation. I will give this to you in the next channelling.

Can you relax in the face of uncertainty when it’s your own country? Can you relax in the face of not knowing what’s next? When you’re so involved, can you disengage from either side of the fray? That is the test of a Lightworker.

There’s something else coming. Dear ones, this is beautiful. No matter what you think and no matter what your reaction is to this channelling, what is happening is correct for your time and needed for your immediate future. I will speak of this later. The beauty is when you step away and see how grand it is, that Spirit cares enough that it would allow a big stick to occur that would stir your complacency at this time. The real reason? The shift is here.

How do you feel? I want you to relax and smile at what the shift has brought you. For those of you who felt all the “shift talk” was nonsense, this may be your wake-up call. It’s real. Here it comes.

This is the message of the day. I am Kryon, in love with humanity, and for good reason.

And so it is.
