"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. …

New policies set to boost China's new-energy car market

Beijing has introduced a series of measures that are expected to provide a shot in the arm to the new-energy vehicles market this year, according to Shanghai's National Business Daily.

China sold merely 17,533 new energy vehicles in 2013, but 20,000 were sold during the first half of this year, according to data from the China Association of Automotive Manufacturers.

The 20,000 figure remains quite small, however, compared with the 11.68 million cars sold nationwide in the first half of this year. However, a slew of new measures are expected to help accelerate the development of the market this year and boost sales to between 60,000 and 150,000 vehicles.

New-energy vehicles include fully functioning electric cars, plug-in hybrids and those powered by fuel cells.

The wave of favorable policies introduced during the first half is expected to create enormous opportunities in the market, and domestic and foreign automobile makers are competing to roll out new models of green cars.

Industry experts believe the entry of foreign companies and joint ventures with local automakers will help form a manufacturing chain and improve manufacturing techniques.

On the other hand, domestic carmakers have stepped up their entry into the sector. They produced 20,700 and sold 20,500 new-energy vehicles in the first half of this year, reflecting a 230% and 220% year-on-year growth, respectively.

Since domestic automakers play a dominant role in the fully electric car market, they are likely to be the largest beneficiaries of the new round of preferential policies. However, after the new policies come into effect, carmakers will have to develop a new business model for marketing new-energy vehicles and boosting profitability, according to the report.

Meanwhile, since an insufficient number of charging stations are frequently cited as the reason for low public enthusiasm for new-energy vehicles, more still needs to be done in this area.

In addition, a new market making new energy vehicles available only for rent or leasing is expected to emerge due to the preferential policies, according to the report.
