Signs of us

As we discard the ego-self, a process of deep discovery emerges.  It arrives unbidden and in unexpected moments.  It is heralded by feelings of comfort and joy.  You have touched, if only for a nano-second, the truth.  Who you are is not afraid, anxious, controlling, demanding or confused.  Who you are is truth.  You are love.  You resonate inside a field of freedom.
These glimpses of the real you can’t help but peek out now – they are finding a welcome atmosphere inside the current vibration on the planet.  Like moths to the flame, they cannot resist.  It is time.
What you can do is notice them.  Then, with awareness, realize the circumstance in which they emerged and decide to set it up as often as possible.  Power, beauty, strength, happiness, joy, peace and love are your birthright.  They are not occasional frivolous emotions but indicators of truth.  If you are looking for direction, you will find it there.
Stress and anxiety arise when you are not “in sync” with what is going on.  Who, why or how doesn’t matter so much at those moments – moving into something else does.  They (feelings of stress and anxiety) are like warning lights on your phone: “currently operating at 10%”.  If you don’t plug in soon, all power will be depleted.
You are a beacon of light.  You function consistently well with a constant stream of energy.  What lights you up?  How are you the most successful?  When are you joyful?  Where does your power emerge?  Who do you love?
At the core of the answer to each of these queries is you.  But you do not live in a vacuum.  You are gloriously surrounded with the rest of us, who may or may not be operating from our own truth when we interact.  That’s okay and very much why we have met here now.  We are here to show the way, to be the light and to share the love.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

11 countries near bankruptcy

After years of bitter court battles with creditors, Argentina has defaulted on its debt, according to rating agency Standard & Poor’s. After failing to come to an agreement with creditors from its previous default in 2001, the country missed necessary bond payments on July 31, triggering the default announcement. As of publication, other organizations, most notably the rating agency Moody’s Investors Service and the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, a derivatives trade group, have yet to release public statements confirming the default.

Argentina is not the only country that has struggled, or even failed, to pay its debt in recent years. It is hardly the only country with a severely impaired credit rating either. Alongside Argentina, Moody’s currently lists 10 other countries with a rating of Caa1 or worse. A Caa1 rating is several notches below Ba1, which still carries substantial credit risk. Based on ratings from Moody’s Investors Service, these are the 11 countries at risk of default.

The countries with the lowest credit ratings significantly differ from one another. They span the globe, ranging from Greece and Ukraine in Europe, to Pakistan in Asia, to Ecuador, Venezuela, and Belize in South America.
