"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. …

Companies pile in to build EV charging posts in China

Large electric-car charging pile constructors, operators and equipment suppliers are tapping into opportunities offered by numerous local governments in China, unveiling plans to construct electric car charging facilities in their localities, although small companies are still hesitant to venture into the sector, Shanghai's China Business News reports.

Beijing has announced plans to complete the construction of 1,000 public fast-charging electric car stands by the end of this year, covering the downtown area and nearby suburbs. Locations for 100 public fast-charging points have already been confirmed.

Shanghai and Tianjin also announced plans to construct some 6,000 piles each in the cities.

An electric car industry insider told the paper that China Putian, a leading technology company that makes telecommunications products, including switching systems and other networking products, had been holding talks with the Beijing government. "Both governments and enterprises have started talking to us," a source from Putian said.

Commissioned by state enterprises, Putian China is responsible for the construction and operations of the electric vehicle charging services network in various local regions served by these companies.

The company dominates the electric-vehicle charging equipment market along with a few other enterprises, the report pointed out, adding that the State Grid Corporation of China and China Southern Power Grid Company had undertaken large construction projects of charging stations, with the former vying for the construction of electric vehicle (EV) charging service networks in Beijing and Tianjin in 2011, while China Southern Power Grid Company was engaged in electric vehicle charging and battery rental services.

China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec) and China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) have constructed EV fast-charging systems near the many gas stations they have already opened in various regions.

In comparison to state-run enterprises, however, private enterprises in the charging equipment industry are hesitant to invest considerably in the sector, mainly because they think the market is not mature enough.

Sizeable capital needs to be invested in the sector, even though it provides only low returns on investment, the paper stated.

A major problem for the industry is the minimal development of the number of electric vehicles in China, mainly because local enterprises' electric vehicle and battery production standards are still not on par, an expert said, adding that the government should step in to promote EV-related industry by pooling the efforts of various government agencies.
