"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. …

Awards go to Papua priest, late labor activist

A Papuan priest and a late labor activist were conferred Thursday with the prestigious Yap Thiam Hien Award, presented to those showing the most dedication to the upholding of human rights in Indonesia.

The recipients are Yohanes Jonga, a Roman Catholic priest from Waris district, the administrative seat of Keerom regency in Papua province bordering Papua New Guinea; and Fauzi Abdullah, a labor rights defender who died late last month from lung and liver diseases, just two weeks before the awarding ceremony.

Yohanes, born in 1958 in Manggarai, East Nusa Tenggara, was recognized for dedicating 23 years to upholding the rights of abused Papuans, especially in his parish covering Waris and Wamena district, the administrative seat of Jayawijaya regency.

He has been working for almost nine years to serve the people in border areas after being ordained in 2002.

Meanwhile, Fauzi, who was born a year later, was awarded for his role in educating and encouraging workers to campaign for their rights to unionize.

“Father John [Yohanes’ nickname] Jonga has been fighting human rights abuses, which have manifested themselves in the lack of freedom, education and women’s empowerment [in Papua],” Todung Mulya Lubis, a rights activist and chairman of the Indonesian Legal Roundtable, which gave out the award, said during the award ceremony Thursday night.

“If we can eliminate these issues, we’ll be able to eliminate poverty and rights abuses in Papua. Therefore we confer this award to him.”

In praising Fauzi, meanwhile, Todung said the former was “a gift to the working class”.

“He had been defending workers’ rights for the past 35 years. Fauzi never changed… he conducted himself like a gentleman and was always modest.”

Apart from Todung, the jury that voted on the recipients included Harkristuti Harkrisnowo, director general for human rights at the Justice and Human Rights Ministry, Kompas daily newspaper senior journalist Maria Hartiningsih and Paramadina University political observer Yudi Latif.

In his acceptance speech, Yohanes said he had been fighting rights abuses committed by the military and funded by business people in resource-rich Papua.

“Women have suffered the most during military operations,” he said.

Fauzi, meanwhile, was represented by his wife Dwi Purwanti and son Reihan.

“I hope this award will inspire others to continue my husband’s struggle,” Dwi said. (nia)
