"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. …

Public Warned Of ‘Expired’ Chinese New Year Goods

More than three quarters of the food and drink products being sold in Chinese speciality stores ahead of the Chinese New Year on Sunday had passed their expiration dates, the Ministry of Health’s Food and Drug Monitoring Agency said on Friday.

Kustantinah, head of the agency, also known as the BPOM, said the discovery was “shocking.”

“From February 5 to 11 we raided 556 stores throughout the country that usually sell Chinese New Year foodstuffs and the results were quite shocking, because 76.4 percent of their products had expired,” Kustantinah said.

She said the stores raided included a number in Glodok and Gajah Mada in West Jakarta, both areas with high concentrations of Indonesians of Chinese descent. Other raids were conducted in the provinces of Riau, South and North Sumatra, East Java and Yogyakarta.

Kustantinah said that many operators of the small stores catering to the Tionghoa (ethnic Chinese) considered Chinese New Year the perfect opportunity to boost their sales.

However, it now seems that many saw selling expired or damaged goods as another way to increase their profits.

She added that 3,252 items of expired food and drinks had been confiscated and would be destroyed immediately.

Dewi Prawitasari, the director of inspection and certification at the agency, said most items confiscated were canned cocktails, milk, chocolate, biscuits, candy and soft drinks. Most of the products are from little-known brands imported from China.

Dewi said that all store owners had been reprimanded and if they get more than two warning letters from the agency, they could be brought to court for violating the Consumer Protection Law, which carries a jail term of up to five years and a Rp 2 billion ($186,000) fine.

BPOM also found 251 items of damaged goods and dozens of food and drinks that lacked the official permits issued by the agency for both local and imported products.

“Following this discovery, we hope consumers become more aware and always check expiration dates and package condition before buying a product,” she said. Dessy Sagita
