The best athlete
wants his opponent at his best.
The best general
enters the mind of his enemy.
The best businessman
serves the communal good.
The best leader
follows the will of the people.
All of them embody
the virtue of non-competition.
Not that they don’t love to compete,
but they do it in the spirit of play.
In this they are like children
and in harmony with the Tao.

Christ Consciousness and Humanity
A period of years will follow these transmissions during which those of you who have awakened to the new way of being will become grounded on your new level of unified consciousness, and construct with the collective power that will flow through you, a bio-gravitational field of sufficient intensity to draw into it, through a process of rhythmic entrainment, the rest of your race. This will initiate the second period before you, the Period of Planetary Awakening. This period will last one thousand years. During this time, we will grace your planet with physical manifestations of our angelic extraterrestrial presence. Together, we will work to prepare for the third and primary period of your time-cycle, the Age of Discovery.
At this time in your racial experience, most of you are not yet ready to enter into a closer working relationship with us, but we will prepare you, during the next twenty revolutions of this planet around the Sun, for the time when your collective vibrational patterns are such that we can blend with them on a large scale.

Global problems such as terrorism, inequality and political dysfunction aren’t easy to solve, but that doesn’t mean we should stop trying. In fact, suggests journalist Jonathan Tepperman, we might even want to think riskier. He traveled the world to ask global leaders how they’re tackling hard problems — and unearthed surprisingly hopeful stories that he’s distilled into three tools for problem-solving.
