"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. …

Guinness World Records recently named Borobudur temple in the Central Java town of Magelang as the world’s largest Buddhist temple, an Indonesian official said on Wednesday.

“Borobudur has been officially recognized by Guinness World Records in London, UK, as the world’s largest Buddhist archeological temple; under claim number 396-198,” said Purnomo Siswoprasetjo, the director of Borobudur-Prambanan tourism management.

“From now on, Borobudur temple is officially one of the Guinness World Records title holders,” he added.

Purnomo said Guinness put Borobudur on its records list on June 27, and that his office received an official certificate from Guinness on the new honor.

The registration process for the granting of the title took some three months to complete, he added.

“We hope this means more support and benefits, especially for the marketing and promotion [of Borobudur] at the international level.”

On its website, Guinness states: “The largest Buddhist temple in the world is Borobudur, near Yogyakarta, Central Java, Indonesia, built between AD 750 and 842.”

It says the 60,000-cubic-meter stone structure stands 34.5 meters tall, with its base measuring 123 by 123 meters.

Borobudur was listed as a Unesco World Heritage site in 1991. The temple has long been a major tourist attraction for Central Java and Yogyakarta.

Purnomo said in 2011 alone it drew 250,000 visitors, an increase of 15 percent from the previous year.

In the first quarter of 2012, the number of visitors was up by 16 percent compared with the figure over the same period last year.

Purnomo said his office had also registered Prambanan temple, which is situated on the border of Central Java and Yogyakarta, as the world’s largest Hindu temple. The result of that submission is pending verification from Guinness.
