7-31-14   But industry experts on Wednesday doubted that the sanctions the EU has agreed on can inflict immediate damage to the Russian energy sector.

 “While sanctions would hurt both Russian companies and their international partners, they do not apply to ongoing projects,” Investcafe analyst Grigory Birg said. “They could have an effect in the long run, but that would take years, because the current projects first have to come to completion,” he said. The threat may even be fully negated, he added, as the EU has agreed to review the sanctions in three months time.

 The need to find a substitute for energy equipment imports is high on the Russian government’s list of priorities in the wake of earlier waves of Western sanctions. In June, President Vladimir Putin held a meeting devoted to the subject at which Energy Minister Alexander Novak presented alarming figures: According to his ministry, about a quarter of all oil and gas equipment used in Russia comes from abroad, and shelf development projects are almost 100 percent reliant on foreign equipment for which there is no viable domestic alternative.  http://sptimes.ru/index.php?action_id=2&story_id=40443

303. It is most pernicious when half-wayness insinuates itself into one who is affirming himself upon the path, because then there results duality of thought and action. Hence half-wayness is the enemy of the Teaching, and when We see half-wayness in relation to Hierarchy this destructive attitude must be eradicated–for without integrity there can be no construction. Hence the disciples must understand how important it is to have complete striving. For this one should renounce personal comfort, conceit, self-pity, self-deception, and should always remember that Hierarchy must not be burdened.  -Morya:  Hierarchy 1931

We demand the mind of the chela (devotee surrendering to higher purpose) conform to the mind of God.  Hence our method in the presentation of the Law is often after the koan of the Zen masters.  We allow the enigma of divine reason to challenge human reason, to force the soul to a new plane, the plane of the raltionale of the eternal Logos….The same Law holds true as you read the sacred scriptures of the world, for the true masters of the ages have never cast their pearls carellessly.  They have revealed part of the mystery through the spoken word and part through the unspoken word of their example.  Beyond that they have left the inner law of each one’s own being act to compel the soul to rise to the level of the Christ consciousness….

It has been said that if the pearl-diver dives into the ocean and finds nothing it is not the fault of the ocean.  Opportunity is the sands of the hourglass eternally flowing through time and space. Opportunity is to seize the grain of the moment and make it a living pearl.   -Morya:  Pearls of Wisdom 18:15, see http://books.google.com/books?id=rooqOvSrDksC&pg=PA78&dq=clare+prophet+halfwayness&hl=en&sa=X&ei=SAncU6uxIIbKiwK5toHIDQ&ved=0CCUQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=clare%20prophet%20halfwayness&f=false

“With men it is impossible, but not with God:  for with God all things are possible.”  (Luke 18:27; Matt. 19:26, Mark 10:27)….But if I didn’t take the necessary, practical human footsteps this law would not work for me.  I had to meet God at least halfway and then some.  I had to do all that was humanly possible.  I had to stretch the limits of my ability.  My reach had to exceed my grasp. Then and only then would God (the Universal, the deep potential) enter and supply the power and the grace for each new challenge and achievement.    -Messenger E C Prophet, see http://books.google.com/books?id=G6wmvnV_Pi8C&pg=PA95&dq=clare+prophet+halfwayness&hl=en&sa=X&ei=Yg3cU_blJIuzigL7g4CwDg&ved=0CEYQ6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q=clare%20prophet%20halfwayness&f=false
