"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. …

Jakarta. Former Army general Prabowo Subianto is by far the richest among the four presidential and vice presidential candidates, with a total of $148 million in wealth, according to data verified by the Corruption Eradication Commission, or KPK.

Prabowo’s wealth largely consists of share ownership in 26 companies totaling Rp 1.52 trillion ($128.4 million) and includes four homes worth Rp 106 billion, eight vehicles worth Rp 1.4 billion, and artworks and antique items totaling Rp 3 billion.

Prabowo has amassed a total of Rp 1.67 trillion in local currency and $7.5 million. Prabowo announced the figures himself at the office of the General Elections Commission (KPU) in Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Tuesday.

Coming in second is vice presidential candidate Jusuf Kalla, the running mate of Prabowo’s rival, Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo. Kalla, a renowned businessman from Makassar and the vice president of Indonesia from 2004 to 2009, is worth a total of $40.2 million — less than a third of Prabowo’s wealth.

Kalla’s wealth is also mostly based in share ownership — in 13 companies, worth nearly Rp 335 billion in total. He has 51 property units totaling Rp 121.8 billion, four vehicles worth Rp 525 million, as well as nearly Rp 7 billion in cash.

Prabowo’s running mate Hatta Rajasa and Joko come in at almost the same figure, but far below Kalla’s and much less than Prabowo’s.

Hatta has a total of $2.6 million in wealth, mostly composed of 14 homes totaling Rp 21.7 billion, as well as Rp 4 billion of securities, Rp 2 billion of antique goods and artworks, and Rp 1.65 billion in jewelry.

Joko, who ran a furniture business before becoming mayor of the Central Java town of Solo and, later, governor of Jakarta, is the least wealthy of the candidates. The majority of his $2.5 million is based in 24 homes totaling Rp 29 billion. Joko also has 12 vehicles worth Rp 954 million and Rp 488 million in bank accounts.

The two presidential candidates and their running mates appeared at the KPU office on Tuesday to publicly announce the KPK-verified figures.

News portal reported that Prabowo amassed approximately Rp 10.7 billion in wealth by 2003, and Hatta around Rp 17 billion in 2012.

State-run news agency Antara, meanwhile, reported Joko’s wealth totaling Rp 18.5 billion by 2010 and Kalla around Rp 315 billion by 2009.

Producing wealth reports on candidates prior to an election provides a measure by which to increase transparency and reduce corruption.
