"The Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration Lectures, God / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) - (Text version)

… 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. …

Gamelan maker festival introduces Sukohardjo

Antara News, Sunday, November 29, 2009 22:29 WIB

Sukoharjo (ANTARA News) - The Sukoharjo regency administration, East Java province, held a "Gamelan Making City Festival" on November 29, 2009, to introduce the city as a Gamelan city.

Sukoharjo regency official Bambang Riyanto said that the event is held to introduce Sukoharjo as a Gamelan producing city, considering that other countries identified some cities in Indonesia like Solo and Jogjakarta having special characteristics.

He mentioned that most of gamelan makers came from Sukoharjo, which has 19 gamelan makers.

Therefore, the Gamelan Maker Festival is trying to make people understanding the importance of gamelan as a national heritage, Bambang said.

Many guests packed Kotakan Square, Polokarto sub-district, Sukoharjo, just to watch how a gamelan is being made. The event is led by five Empus (master craftsman) Empu Saroyo, Pardiyo, Suparno, Saleh Utomo, and Dasah Pujo Suwarno.

According to Empu Saroyo, the Gamelan Maker Festival 2009 not only introduce Sukoharjo as a gamelan city, it will also be followed by a promotion for making gamelans, which is still lacking.

Besides, Saroyo said that the introduction of gamelans during the early days of childhood can also serve as inputs of the empu to maintain gamelan making.

Oktobariantono, a Gamelan Maker Festival visitor said that the event is very interesting for people who did not know anything about gamelan making.

"People can be proud after watching how gamelans are made, although we hope the introduction is also done in the daily life of the people, not in certain events only, such in schools", he said.

Gamelan is a traditional Javanese ensemble musical instrument, usually made of brass of shapes and sounds.
