"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. …

The Australian Embassy will present nine awards to alumni of Australian universities in a gala dinner slated for Feb. 21 to recognize Indonesians who have studied in Australia and returned home to excel in their fields. 

Australian Ambassador to Indonesia Bill Farmer said last week 38 nominees active in business, environmental affairs, the media, culture and academe had been selected by their peers and past Alumni Award winners.

The awards are handed out in nine categories in all, including for sustainable social and economic development, for research and innovation, for culture and the arts as all as a special award for young achievers. 

Speaking at the dinner honoring the nominees, Farmer reaffirmed the Australian government's commitment to helping improve education and living standards in Indonesia even as Australia's economy is feeling the pinch from the global economic crisis. 

"*The economic crisis* will not affect the level of assistance offered to Indonesia," he said. 

The evening also acknowledged the work of prominent Indonesians with the presentation of special awards for their work in the community. 

"These individuals have worked tirelessly . driven by their passion for contributing to improving the lives of others," Farmer said. 

Recipient Abdullah Alamudi, honored for his contribution to the media in Indonesia, is currently serving on the Indonesian Press Council and has provided guidance to the government, the military and lawyers on the importance of press freedom. 

Lubna Algadrie also received an award for her contribution to education and language studies; I Made Nitis won for his agricultural research. 

The winners of the Inspirational Alumni Award were chosen for their contribution to the lives of others, and included legal expert Deddy Mulyana, educator Khairiah Syahabuddin, aid worker Netty Muharni, business owner Hadi Cahyadi and small-business advocate Fanina Yulianthi.
