"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. …

President shines a light on a hero

Theresia Sufa, The Jakarta Post, Bogor | Mon, 03/02/2009 2:13 PM  

President Yudhoyono will inaugurate a new statue next week at the Pembela Tanah Air (Peta) museum in Bogor dedicated to the volunteer army that fought for independence. 

"President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono will visit the Peta museum on March 3 to inaugurate a statue of Supriyadi, a national hero, who fought among the Peta rebel forces" said Lt. Col. Marthen L. Djari, head of the officiating ceremony. 

Supriyadi led some 200 members of Pembela Tanah Air in a revolt against Japanese troops in Blitar, East Java, on Feb. 14, 1945. He held the Japanese rank of Sho Dan Cho at the time. 

After the Peta revolt, which was quashed by the Japanese administration, Supriyadi disappeared, never to appear in public again. The Japanese military police Kenpentai arrested the field commander of the uprising, Muradi, along with five other soldiers. On May 16, 1945, they were beheaded at Ancol beach in North Jakarta. 

After independence, Supriyadi was appointed in absentia as the people's defense minister in the country first cabinet on Oct. 6, 1945. On Oct. 20, the office of People's Security Army (TKR) commander was bestowed upon him. He was summoned several times to fill these offices, but he never came forward. He was then believed missing. 

A lecturer at Yogyakarta's Sanata Dharma University, Baskara T. Wardaya has said many people have claimed to be Supriyadi over the years. Baskara wrote a book, Mencari Supriyadi (In search of Supriyadi) when an 88-year-old man Andaryoko Wisnuprabu came forward claming he was the missing hero. 

In the lead-up to the President's visit, staff at the Peta Museum have been busy cleaning up the exhibit rooms in the museum. 

Former president Suharto, who had been a member of Peta himself, officiated at the opening of the museum in 1995. The museum was sited in Bogor because that city was the center for training Peta soldiers. The training area was called Jawa Boei Giyugun Kanbu Kyo Iku Tai. 

The museum has 14 dioramas that describe the activities and training of the Peta rebels. The museum also displays collections of weapons and Peta uniforms. 

Bogor Tourism and Culture Agency head Ade Syarif Hidayat said that the museum was one of Bogor's icons of tourism. 

He said the museum commemorated and preserved the memorabilia as historical evidence of the existence of the volunteer soldiers who joined the rebel forces. Though their revolt failed, the fighters helped prepare the way for Indonesia's struggle for independence. 

"We're very proud as Bogor residents that Bogor was once a training center for Peta soldiers," he said. 

Peta was formed during the Japanese occupation on Oct. 3, 1943 and was the starting point for the formation of the Indonesian National Military or TNI.- JP
