"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. …

World Economic Forum Turns Focus to Indonesia

Jakarta. The spotlight will be on Indonesia this April as it hosts the 24th World Economic Forum on East Asia in the nation’s capital, underlining the country’s growing influence in the regional economy.

Some 650 top business executives and government leaders will attend the international forum, a regional spin-off of the annual WEF in Davos, Switzerland, where they will discuss matters ranging from the economy to education.

This will be Indonesia’s second stint at hosting the forum, scheduled from April 19 to 21 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Jakarta.

Some of the companies slated to be represented at the forum include Shell, Chevron, Google and Microsoft.

The forum will also coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Asia-Africa Conference in Bandung, featuring 109 representatives from the two continents.

“Indonesia is the largest economy in the Southeast Asian region and is the only [Southeast Asian] country in the G-20,” Sushant Palakurthi Rao, the senior director of the WEF in the Asia-Pacific region, said at a media briefing in Jakarta on Wednesday.

“It plays a very important role in connecting the big economies and the emerging countries.”

The forum comes at a time when the Indonesian government is seeking more foreign direct investment to speed up infrastructure development in the country, where investments make up a third of total economic output.

“The timing is right considering our big plans for development,” Bachrul Chairi, the Trade Ministry’s director general for international trade, said on Wednesday.

“Indonesia has to take advantage of this moment where world-class CEOs will meet our government leaders, especially the president. We can present our plans and network with the CEOs in our efforts to bolster Indonesia’s economy.”

President Joko Widodo has set out ambitious infrastructure development plans for the next five years — from building power plants to generate an additional 35 gigawatts of electricity, to developing 24 new seaports — and has reached out to both local and foreign investors to boost their presence in the country.

The Investment Coordinating Board, or BKPM, targets total investment this year of Rp 519.5 trillion ($40.4 billion) this year, up 14 percent from last year, with more than 60 percent coming from overseas.

“Growth rates [in Indonesia] are high, but infrastructure must keep up,” Rao said.

“[The WEF sees] the potential in Indonesia. It has been most improved. To maintain that positive momentum, it’s good that the [infrastructure development] vision is implemented quickly.”

The country recorded its slowest pace of economic growth in five years in 2014, at 5.02 percent, down from 5.8 percent in 2013. This year, the government hopes growth will rebound to 5.7 percent, backed by increased government and private-sector spending.

Indonesia ranked 34th in the WEF’s Global Competitiveness report for the 2014 to 2015 period, improving by four places from the year before.
