"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. …

Denpasar. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is among 12 heads of government coming to Nusa Dua later this week for the two-day Bali Democracy Forum.

Indonesia’s Foreign Ministry said that leaders from Afghanistan, Australia, Brunei, China, East Timor, Iran, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, Yemen had confirmed their attendance at the event.

“The Asean secretary general will also be present,” Siti Nugraha Mauludiah, the ministry’s technical cooperation director, told reporters in Denpasar on Monday.

The ministry said that the annual forum on Thursday and Friday would also be attended by 27 ministers.

“The number of ministers could increase, given that each head of state may bring along several ministers,” Siti said.

So far, 1,246 participants from 73 countries have confirmed their attendance. Countries not sending heads of government or ministers will be represented by appointed observers.

Siti said that the BDF would be opened by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, with representatives from Australia and South Korea acting as co-chairs.

Ten heads of government will speak on democracy on the first day, while the agenda for the second day will be filled with discussions across three sessions.

Discussions in the first session will center on security and peace, the second session on human rights and the third session on economic development.

Several heads of government are also scheduled to hold bilateral meetings on the sidelines of the conference. South Korean President Lee Myung-bak will deliver a keynote speech at the conference.

During the address, Lee plans to stress the importance of democracy as a universal value of humankind and underscore the need to promote democracy for the sake of international peace, safety and prosperity, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

On the sidelines, Lee will meet with Yudhoyono to discuss ways to deepen relations between the two countries to mark the 40th anniversary of their diplomatic relations, the Foreign Ministry said.

Trade volume between South Korea and Indonesia has more than doubled in the past five years, to $30.7 billion in 2011. Preliminary talks on a bilateral free trade deal have also taken place.

After the summit, Yudhoyono plans to award Lee with Indonesia’s highest state medal, Bintang Republik Indonesia Adipurna (Star of the Republic of Indonesia), in recognition for his contribution to relations between the two countries.

Ahmadinejad’s participation in the BDF comes after several years in which Iran has been represented by ministers.

Meanwhile, police and military have started to intensify security in Bali.

“Security points start from Bali’s entrance points,” Maj. Gen. Wisnu Bawa Tenaya, the head of Bali’s military command, said on Monday.

Wisnu said that security would be most intense in the Nusa Dua area, including around the meeting venue and hotels where the participants are staying.

Also protected will be roads to the meeting venue and strategic points such as the airport, waterways and tourism sites.

Security forces have deployed rubber boats, armored cars, helicopters and battleships as part of security measures.

Bali Police community director Putu Gde Suastawa said 1,400 personnel would be deployed to secure the event.

“We will also be assisted by pecalang [traditional village security officers] who will control security in their respective villages,” he said.

The BDF was an Indonesian government initiative first held in 2008 with the aim of developing democracy in the Asia Pacific. The forum seeks to promote regional and international cooperation in the development of peace and democracy through dialogue and the sharing of experiences.
