"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. …

‘Awesome’ Obama Shines in Jakarta

Jakarta. “Awesome,” “amazing,” “wonderful” and “great” were just four of the numerous reactions posted on the Jakarta Globe’s Facebook profile in response to United States President Barack Obama’s speech in Jakarta on Wednesday.

Shinta Purnama Sarie summed up the overwhelmingly positive response to Obama’s speech at the University of Indonesia, saying the address had left her speechless and that she admired him “so bad.”

She said it was amazing that the charismatic president, who she labeled as the best public speaker besides Martin Luther King, could pack so much content into a speech, covering development, democracy and religion in just 30 minutes.

Elizabeth A Matteson-Siregar wrote that as an American, she was “very impressed.”

“I am married to an Indonesian man and would love to come to Jakarta one day!!! To see the once home of our President. Perhaps this speech will be the beginning of a closer relationship with the US.”

Uthie Suka Kopi said the speech reminded her of those given by Indonesia's founding president, Sukarno. “Well played Mr President!”

Rumsari Darma noted that Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono would learn from Obama, including how to relate to his own people, by not being too “high & mighty, rigid and cold.”

Yuventius Nicky Nurman, a political advisor from the Center for Good Governance in Yogyakarta told the Jakarta globe on Wednesday that though he found nothing surprising about Obama’s speech, the US president had trumped Yudhoyono, who has failed to address issues of religious intolerance in Indonesia.

“Simply by mentioning religious tolerance and Bhinneka Tunggal Ika [Unity in Diversity], Obama has made a very smart political move; he’s the first foreign president who has overstepped the Indonesia president,” he said.

Nicky said the speech was similar to the address he delivered at Cairo University in June, 2009, adding that on both occasions, Obama littered his presentation with language that reflected his knowledge of each country.

Overall, he said the speech was “not boring.” “It’s exactly what I expected from Obama.”

Nurfita Osman, a freshman at the University of Indonesia nursing school who saw the speech live, said she thought the speech was “mediocre.”

“We only went crazy and started to scream because he was talking about his childhood in Indonesia and his fondness for Indonesian food,” she said.

“But he is such a great speaker. The speech was never boring because he delivered it with such passion and interesting gestures,” she said.

Harisa Permatasari, a freelance book translator who watched the speech from her home in Bandung, West Java, said that Obama knew exactly how to embrace his audience — by telling them a story they wanted to hear.

She said he described Indonesia so beautifully and brilliantly that it gave her goosebumps.

Dimas Novriandi, who works for a private company in Jakarta, said Obama had successfully delivered an important message to Indonesians.

“The speech touches our sense of nationality because Obama fluently talked about Bhinneka Tunggal Ika and the spirit of religious tolerance, which has been forgotten by many Indonesians,” he said.

Dimas said that he and his colleagues were mesmerized by the speech.
