"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. …

Catholic-Majority Province Hoping for Papal Visit in 2014

Kupang. The governor of the mainly Christian province of East Nusa Tenggara on Monday announced a plan to invite Pope Francis to visit the region.

“On behalf of our province, I have invited Pope Francis to visit and I have conveyed the request to Cardinal Stanislaw, asking him to relay the message to the pontiff, and we will also send an official written invitation,” Governor Frans Lebu Raya said in Kupang, the provincial capital.

He was referring to Stanislaw Rylko, a Polish cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church who currently serves as president of the Pontifical Council for the Laity.

“We hope we can bring the pope here next year,” Rylko said.

Rylko is currently in Kupang on a visit where he was scheduled to officiate at the Oebelo pilgrimage site.

If Pope Francis agrees to visit the province, commonly known by its Indonesian initials NTT, he will be the third pontiff to visit in the last 50 years.

Pope Paul VI visited the island of Flores in NTT in 1967 and he was followed by Pope John Paul II who visited Maumere district in 1989.

During his visit to NTT, Rylko cautioned people not to misuse the pilgrimage site.

“If you commit indecent conduct you will be condemned for generations,’ he said. He added that the site was not only built for Catholics, but for anyone to bring their family and relatives to pray.

Thousands of Catholics attended the ceremony at the Oebelo pilgrimage site. The site features a chapel named Santo Yohannes Paulus II after the region’s last papal visitor.

Rylko was welcomed with an official ceremony conducted by province officials.

Pope Francis himself is the first non-European Pope elected in 1,300 years, and inherits from his German predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, a church rocked by sex-abuse scandals amid a waning profile in an increasingly secular West.

His biggest challenge is to restore the reputation of the millennia-old institution and attract believers to a faith outstripped by Islam in terms of global numbers.
