"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. …

Fire guts Bounty cruise warehouse

Indah Setiawati, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Sat, 02/07/2009 1:11 PM  |  Bali 

Fire engulfed parts of a warehouse belonging to the Bounty cruise ship company at Benoa Port in Denpasar on Friday morning. 

The fire damaged two storage rooms that held two huge tanks of water and diesel, but no casualties were reported. 

Benoa Marine Police chief Adj. Comr. Gusti Ayu Putu Suwinaci said the fire was extinguished before it spread to a larger room nearby and a ship under construction. The fire was put out with the help of neighboring company PT Jaya Kota and port operator PT Pelabuhan Indonesia (Pelindo). Ayu said four fire engines came late to the scene to find that the fire had already been tamed. Firefighters were helped by a machine that sucked up seawater from Jaya Kota into a tank that would normally have been used to water ornamental plants at the port. 

"We do not know the source of the fire yet, as the investigation is still underway. When I arrived, the fire erupted from the roof of the middle room where the water tank was kept," she said. 

The storage tank of diesel, which would have spread the fire, was still intact and its storage room only had major damage to its roof. The middle room that kept some gasoline and a water tank was destroyed, while the larger room that kept aluminum materials only had minor damage on its roof. 

Bounty owner, I Gde Wiratha, who is also the chairman of the Bali branch of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said he could not yet estimate the total loss. 

"I wonder what caused the fire; maybe an electricity surge or a lit cigarette? But that zone is a nonsmoking area," he said. He arrived at the scene in the afternoon after the blaze was put out. 

He said the blaze taught him to immediately provide a special hydrant that was suitable for such a situation. 

"It's a wake-up call for us, for not having a special hydrant," he said, adding that a currently available hydrant was not supported by an adequate water supply. 

His wife, Yeni Wiratha, said she was grateful for the quick response that prevented the fire spreading to other buildings. 

"It's indeed proof that God still protects us," she said.
