"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. …

Journalists awarded for reportage

Irawaty Wardany, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) awarded nine Indonesian journalists Monday for their work on children.

The award ceremony, held at the Jakarta Convention Center, was attended by Information and Communication Minister Muhammad Nuh, State Minister for Women's Empowerment Meutia Farida Hatta Swasono, UNICEF chief representative in Indonesia Gianfranco Rotigliano as well as editors of national media organizations.

The award was delivered to three media categories including radio, television and print.

The radio category was scooped by journalists at 68H Radio News with their feature stories.

Fariansyah took first place with his story TK 10,000 Perak (Kindergarten with a monthly fee of Rp 10,000) aired in January 2007.

The second place went to Sri Lestari with her story Perdagangan Anak dan Perempuan di Indramayu (Trafficking of women and children in Indramayu) aired in July 2007.

And third place went to Suryawijanti with her story Hidupku Terbelenggu Perbudakan Adat (My life is repressed by custom's slavery) aired in March 2007.

Currently 68H is the only radio station that provides a feature program every day at 7:30 p.m.

In the television category, reporter Toni Tjahjono from RCTI won first place with his story Manusia Gerobak (Cart men) aired on the channel's Urban program in September 2007.

Second place went to Aderia of Trans TV with her story Demi Uang Bayi Disewakan (Babies for rent) aired for Reportase Sore (Afternoon Report) program in July 2007.

And third place went to Dulhadi of RCTI with his story on Nasib Buram Bocah Pedongkelan (Dark fate of Pedongkelan children) also aired on the Urban program.

Best journalistic work on children in print was awarded to Ahmad Nurhasim from Jurnal Nasional daily, with his article Saujana Retak di Balik Penjara Anak (Broken vision behind the bars of juvenile prison) published in July 2007.

Second prize in print went to Angela H. Wahyuningsih from Femina magazine with her article, Aku tak Mau jadi Artis Ma! (I don't want to be a celebrity model/actress/singer, Ma!) published in the 44th edition of Femina.

Third place in print went to Aris Kelana from Gatra magazine with his article Gemuk Dahulu Penyakit Datang Kemudian (Being fat first, disease comes later) published in March 2007.

All winners were given Rp 50 million (US$5,313.5) of life insurance each and cash prizes of Rp 6,5 million, Rp 5 million and Rp 4 million each for first, second and third place.

Fariansyah said in his speech, the award was his first ever.

He said he did not expect praise however as he was "just doing his job when he found out about a kindergarten in Plumpang, East Jakarta".

The kindergarten he reported on is managed by a local housewife with only Rp 10,000 school fees a month.

At the time he drafted the story, the kindergarten was almost closed down because of a lack of funds for rent.

"But after the story was aired, one of the listeners settled the rental fee for two years," Fariansyah said.
