"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. …

Obama says "Indonesia is part of my life"

Antara News, Wednesday, November 10, 2010 13:06 WIB

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - US President Barack Obama wrapped up his less than 24-hour visit to Jakarta on Wednesday by declaring that Indonesia was part of his life. "`Indonesia bagian dari diri saya`," President Obama said in his address at the University of Indonesia (UI) Campus in Depok, on the outskirt of Jakarta, in fluent Bahasa Indonesia.

His words were greeted warmly by the audience. In his address, Obama touched on his sweet memories during a four years of his childhood period in Jakarta.

He said he first came to Indonesia when his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, who married to an Indonesian, Lolo Soetoro, moved to Jakarta and lived in Menteng Dalam in the late 1960s.

Obama, who had also studied at two different public schools in Jakarta when he was only six to ten years of age, said Hotel Indonesia and Sarinah shopping center were the only two high-rise buildings in the Indonesian capital city in 1967.

Besides the two icons, Obama also well remembered "becaks" ( trishaws) and "bemos" (three-wheeled cars) moving around the roads in Jakarta in the late 1960s.

This 44th president of the United States of America also touched on his favorite Indonesian foods, "sate" (satay) and "bakso" (meat balls). "Sate... bakso enak ya! (Satay and meat balls are delicious!)" he said.

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Jakarta on Tuesday for a less than 24 hour-visit until Wednesday.

The US Air Force One carrying the US head of state and his entourage landed on Tuesday at 4.20 PM at Halim Perdanakusuma airport in Jakarta after a six-hour flight from India.

From Jakarta, Obama and his entourage will proceed to Seoul, South Korea, to attending the G-20 Summit also attended by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono also attended.

Regarding his short visit to Indonesia, Indonesian ambassador to the US Dino Patti Djalal said President Obama`s visit would strengthen the two countries` bilateral relations under a comprehensive partnership.

"RI-US relations are now better structured. It means that RI-US relations are undergoing a transformation toward a significant increase," Dino said.

Obama`s brief visit would also be used to increase trade and investment as well as technology transfer, he said.

On Tuesday, President Obama held bilateral talks with President Yudhoyono and attended a state banquet at Merdeka Palace. On the occasion, former President Megawati Soekarnoputri was also present and sat beside Michelle.

Before delivering a public speech at the University of Indonesia, Obama visited the Istiqlal Grand mosque.

In response to President Obama`s brief state visit, an economist argued that it might have been motivated by the superpower`s efforts to maintain its economic dominance.

"The superpower`s efforts to maintain its dominance in capital ownership, foreign investment or market widening were triggered by its economic crisis," Ahmad Ma`ruf said.

Due to the on-going impacts of the global financial crisis that had weakened the US economy, Obama needed the markets of such potential countries as India and Indonesia, he said.

According to the economist of Yogyakarta-based Muhammadiyah University, Obama`s visit would benefit American business people more than their Indonesian counterparts.

"American business people will get much more benefit from President Obama`s visit than those of Indonesia," he said.

Obama`s visit could likely be a starting step to pave the way for American businessmen to target Indonesia`s privatizing state companies, said the executive director of the university`s Institute for Public Policy and Economic Studies.
