"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. Even though the government has not officially announced the start of the holy month of Ramadan, followers of Tarikat Almufridun, a Muslim group in Langkat, North Sumatra, began fasting on Tuesday.

According to Metro TV, the group conducted their first tarawih (evening prayers) on Monday.

Besides Almufridun, around 1,000 followers of Tarekat Naqsabandiyah, another Muslim group in Padang, West Sumatra, began fasting on Monday.

Makmur Syafri, head of the group, told RCTI, a television station, that they had determined the start of Ramadan by date.

“Our method is by calculating the date or Hisab Munjid. According to our calculations, Ramadan started on Sunday night so we started fasting on Monday,” he said.

The An Nadzir religious group in South Sulawesi also started fasting on Monday.

Hundreds of the followers, who live on the banks of Lake Mawang in Gowa district, South Sulawesi, held evening prayers on Sunday.

Lukman Bakri, leader of the group, told that they had determined the start of Ramadan by observing the signs of nature.

“We observed the movement of the moon during high tide and based on what we saw, we’re confident that Ramadan started on Monday,” Lukman said.

The Ministry of Religion is expected to announce the official start of Ramadan today.

Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, is a time of introspection for Muslims and a time to seek God’s mercy and forgiveness. During the month, fasting Muslims are not allowed to eat, drink or have sex, among other things, from dawn until sunset.
