"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’s legions of bicyclists, frustrated by waves of traffic and crumbling roadways, are hoping for a smoother ride after opening a new home in South Jakarta on Sunday.

The Bike to Work center was officially opened by program manager Toto Sugito, head of the National Council on Climate Change Rachmat Witoelar and Deputy Minister of Environment Hendri Gustaman.

“With the facilities we have in the B2W house, the coordination of the 85 B2W communities and more than 18,000 B2W bikers in the country can be managed from right here,” Toto said.

The resource center, he said, would serve as a meeting point for the nation’s bicyclists; a maintenance workshop; a library for bicycle-related information from around the world; and a shop selling biking gear.

Looking to spread the word about the benefits of an environmentally friendly lifestyle, Jakarta’s B2W community also rolled out the Web site. The portal has links to forums and social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

“We hope that the members of the Bike to Work community will communicate with one another and share their experiences so we can build two-way communication,” Toto said.

The community, established in 2004, has long campaigned for the establishment of bicycle lanes in the country’s vehicle-clogged cities.

“[We need] to reduce pollution and preserve our natural resources while encouraging healthy lifestyles,” Toto said.

Rachmat, who was there to offer an official endorsement from the government, threw his support behind the program’s ambitions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

“People shouldn’t turn away from bikes, they can make our lives healthier, they are economical, environmental friendly and people can still flash some style while riding,” Rachmat said. “This is also a great way to reduce our carbon emissions and protect the environment. It really should be a concern for all of us.”

The Jakarta Cycling Club, Alita Cycling and Indosat Cycling, all based in the capital, were also on hand at the opening, during which B2W announced corporate sponsorship deals with state flag carrier PT Garuda Indonesia and Sodexo Pass Indonesia.

Bike to Work communities have grown rapidly worldwide at pace with increased public awareness about global warming and healthy living.

At present, Indonesia is the world’s third biggest greenhouse gas emitter. Although the majority of those emissions come from the wholesale logging of its forests.
