… 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. …

EU to 'suspend' Colombia's FARC from terror list

Yahoo – AFP, September 26, 2016

Brussels (AFP) - The European Union has decided to "suspend" Colombia's FARC rebel group from its terror group list, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini announced on Monday.

In a statement, Mogherini said the EU would "suspend FARC from its list of terrorist organisations. This decision will take effect upon the signature of the Peace Agreement."

The Colombian government and the leftist FARC rebels were scheduled to sign their historic peace agreement at 2200 GMT Monday in a ceremony in the colonial city of Cartagena.

The suspension will allow the temporary lifting of sanctions against FARC, including the freezing of its assets. FARC was added to the EU terror list in 2002.

"We are ready to continue our support, focusing on the implementation of the agreement," Mogherini said, adding that the EU was also ready to activate a 600-million-euro package to support the peace deal.

"Today peace is in the hands of the Colombian people," she said.

"An endorsement of the agreement would send positive shockwaves through the continent and the entire world. It would send a message of reconciliation. It would send the powerful message that all conflicts can come to an end."

Earlier, a diplomatic source said the sanctions would be suspended for an initial period of six months, after which they would be reviewed.

On Sunday, the EU's Colombia envoy Ana Paula Zacarias said the guerrilla group could be definitively removed from the blacklist after a six-month review process in which the bloc could have "political dialogue with guerrilla members".

FARC, a Marxist guerrilla group, launched its war on the Colombian government in 1964.

China and Japan take a trip to Cuba

In the next few days, the prime ministers of Japan and China will visit Havana to talk about trade and investment. The two countries hope to gain a foothold in a market that is still off- limits to US companies.

Deutsche Welle, 22 Sep 2016


Cuba is all the fashion. After Iranian President Hassan Rouhani visited Havana earlier this week, the prime minister of Japan and the Chinese premier are set to come to the Caribbean island - an expression of Asia's increased interest in Cuba.

On Thursday night (22.09.2016) Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will land in Havana. The first-ever visit by a Japanese prime minister on the Caribbean island opens a new chapter in their bilateral relations, which were established in 1929. Most recently, in May last year, Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida visited Cuba shortly after the United States and Cuba began their rapprochement. In June this year, in turn, Cuban Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel was in Tokyo.

Strong economic partner wanted

As in many other countries, the US' new Cuba policy and the new economic dynamism in Cuba initiated by President Raul Castro's policy of economic openness sparked new interest in Cuba in Japan. Until then, ties were mainly focused on development cooperation.

While the rapprochement is proceeding more slowly than many expected - the US blockade remains in force and the outcome of the US presidential elections in November is far from certain - the arrival of a strong business partner like Japan comes at just the right time for the troubled Cuban economy, hit by reduced oil deliveries from its ally Venezuela.

Just ahead of Abe's visit, Cuba and Japan agreed to restructure Havana's debt of around 1.5 billion euros ($1.67 billion). The deal is part of Cuba's restructuring negotiations with the Paris Club and paves the way for Japanese loans and investment. What's more, as part of his visit Abe will give Cuba medical equipment, the Japanese newspaper Nikkei reported. While this is officially being described as development assistance, it raises hopes to later export orders for medical technology. A teaching center for Cuban doctors will also be set up in which they are trained on Japanese technology. Alongside tourism and infrastructure projects, medical tourism is an area likely to be of particular interest to Japanese companies.

'A market with potential'

Abe's visit could open new doors to Japanese companies, which want to do business on the island. In July, the Mitsubishi group opened an office in Havana. "We are trying to find new business opportunities to establish some infrastructure projects ... as well as new trading opportunities," Mitsubishi's senior vice president for global strategy told the Reuters news agency. The special economic zone established in Mariel just outside of Havana two years ago which provides tax advantages and other benefits to foreign investors is interesting because of its strategic location in the middle of the Caribbean between the US and the Panama Canal.

"From a logistics point of view, the Caribbean market has a big potential to grow," Takada said.

Despite this small-scale diplomatic offensive, relations between Japan and Cuba are far from being as good as those between Havana and Beijing. After Venezuela, China is Cuba's second-largest trading partner, albeit a distant second, and in some ways a model for Cuba's economic reforms. Ideologically, the two countries are close.

The friend from Beijing

After Abe, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is expected in Cuba in the next few days. The trip has been confirmed, but exact dates are not yet available. During the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping in July 2014 some 30 agreements were concluded "raising relations to new heights." These deals included health, biotechnology, education, agriculture, renewables, energy and tourism. The expansion of Cuba's internet infrastructure is happening with Chinese technology. Since December 2015, there have also been direct flights between Beijing and Havana.

Trade between the two countries amounted last year to nearly 1.6 billion dollars - an increase of more than 50 percent compared with 2014. However, there are only a few Cuban-Chinese joint ventures, and at an estimated 410 million euros, Chinese direct investment has been relatively low, especially in the tourism sector, even if the trend is increasing.

China supports Cuba primarily with loans. In February two credit lines were agreed - they allow Cuba to purchase Chinese tractors for the rice harvest, as well as 240 railway wagons for transporting passengers. In addition, the cargo port of Cuba's second largest city, Santiago de Cuba, is being expanded with Chinese funds - said to amount to more than 100 million dollars.

Economic agreements and cooperation agreements are once again likely to be key at the talks in Havana with Li Keqiang. Like Japan, China wants to strengthen its position in Cuba before the US blockade falls and US companies return to the Cuban market.

Brazil ousts lawmaker who pushed for Rousseff impeachment

Brasília (AFP) - Brazil's lower house of Congress voted Monday to oust its former speaker Eduardo Cunha, who spearheaded the drive to impeach president Dilma Rousseff only to suffer his own graft-stained downfall.

Cunha, who is often compared to the dark, manipulative villain Frank Underwood of the hit Netflix series "House of Cards," was stripped of his seat in the Chamber of Deputies by a resounding vote of 450 in favor, 10 against and nine abstentions.

"I declare lawmaker Eduardo Cunha stripped of office for conduct incompatible with lawmakers' duties," said the decision read out at the conclusion of the late-night session.

Cunha, a 57-year-old conservative allied with the Evangelical Christian right, was a central figure in Brazil's long impeachment drama.

His enemies accuse him of using his power to launch impeachment proceedings as a trump card to stave off his own prosecution for allegedly taking millions of dollars in bribes.

He resigned as speaker in July amid swirling accusations of corruption linked to the huge state oil company Petrobras.

He was forced to face the music in Congress for having "lied" to other lawmakers about his possession of secret Swiss bank accounts.

Cunha, who denies any wrongdoing, handled his own defense at Monday's session. He mainly displayed the cool and calculating persona he is known for, but occasionally his voice broke with emotion.

"I didn't lie. There's no bank account. Where's the proof?" he said.

"Don't judge me based on what public opinion says," he implored, reminding his colleagues that at least 160 of them also face judicial investigations.

But his appeals fell on deaf ears. The vote against him was well clear of the simple majority of 257 needed in the 513-member chamber.

Cunha was first suspended in May, less than a month after lawmakers voted to open impeachment proceedings against Rousseff, Brazil's first woman president.

Rousseff was definitively removed from office on August 31, and replaced by her vice president turned nemesis, Michel Temer.

The new center-right administration brought an end to 13 years of leftist rule in Brazil.

Evangelical 'gangster'

Cunha used a variety of stalling tactics to slow the proceedings that ultimately led to his ouster from Congress. The process dragged on for almost a year, the longest in Brazilian history.

Analysts had predicted he would continue to stall by asking his peers to delay a vote on his fate, arguing for a simple suspension or asking that lawmakers allow him to keep the right to hold public office.

But many of his onetime allies deserted him -- including in his own PMDB party, the biggest in Brazil and also Temer's party.

Rousseff, from the leftist Workers' Party, accused both Temer and Cunha of orchestrating a coup against her.

Thanks largely to Cunha's leadership, the lower house voted heavily in favor last year of opening an impeachment trial against Rousseff, on charges that she illegally manipulated government accounts.

On April 17, the day Rousseff's impeachment trial was authorized, Cunha was the target of a barrage of insults in Congress from leftist deputies, who shouted "Gangster!" and "Putschist!"

Cunha was long considered one of the best wheelers-and-dealers in Brasilia, building a considerable support base including the powerful agriculture lobby, fellow evangelicals and the so-called "bullet caucus" of politicians with police and army connections.

He won prominence promoting a conservative social agenda that included a "Heterosexual Pride Day" and restrictions on abortion. He has been reported to own no less than 150 Internet domains using the name "Jesus."

His defense Monday was sprinkled with religious references, as well as condemnation of Rousseff and her Workers' Party (PT).

In the end, he outlasted her by just two weeks.

"It's the price I'm paying so Brazil can be free of the PT. They're making me pay the price for impeachment," he said.

No matter his fate, he said, no one can take from him "the pleasure of seeing that criminal government go."

The shifting of the Earth’s poles means a change at Cork Airport

The poles ain’t where they used to be, apparently.

Thejournal.ie, Jan 20th 2016

Image: Sean Barry via Flickr/CC
CORK AIRPORT IS to change the numbers assigned to its runways for the first time ever.
The move comes after shifts in the earth’s magnetic poles.

Each airport runway is assigned a runway designator number. The runway designator is made up of a two digit number displayed at each side of the runway, which shows its magnetic heading nearest the full 10 degrees.

The main runways at Cork Airport have been numbered as runway 17 and runway 35 since 1961 and the drifting of the Earth’s magnetic poles has shifted the runways’ magnetic headings, which now stand at 164°M and 344°M, respectively.

Pole shift is a constantly occurring geological phenomenon, in which the Earth’s magnetic field shifts.

Nasa says:
Earth’s polarity is not a constant. Unlike a classic bar magnet, or the decorative magnets on your refrigerator, the matter governing Earth’s magnetic field moves around. Geophysicists are pretty sure that the reason Earth has a magnetic field is because its solid iron core is surrounded by a fluid ocean of hot, liquid metal.

The numbers are required to change in April 2016 in order to remain safety compliant and licensed by the Irish Aviation Authority.

Speaking about the change Ciaran Carton, General Manager of Operators at Cork Airport said:
This is an unusual occurrence for Cork Airport as an airport runway number only changes approximately once in every 50 years. The different runway numbers are crucial for pilots during take-off, landing and taxiing.

“There will also be an alteration of software systems, new airfield mapping and a change in communications with private and commercial pilots. Additionally, we will be replacing the taxiway signage and painting new designation numbers on runway thresholds.”

Inaugural commercial flight from US lands in Cuba

Santa Clara (Cuba) (AFP) - The first regular commercial flight in more than 50 years from the United States landed in Cuba on Wednesday, as the two nations took the latest step in their efforts to boost ties.

JetBlue Flight 387 landed in the central Cuban city of Santa Clara a little before 11:00 am (1500 GMT), about an hour after leaving Fort Lauderdale in southeastern Florida with 150 passengers on board.

The plane was greeted with a water cannon salute, an aviation tradition in which aircraft pass under arcs of water before flying to their destinations for the first time. Its departure from Florida was celebrated the same way.

The first two passengers off the plane carried US and Cuban flags as they descended the stairs onto the tarmac, where they symbolically exchanged the banners in a sign of friendship.

The plane was scheduled to complete the round trip later in the day, returning to Fort Lauderdale.

The flight was the first of 110 expected daily trips connecting US cities to airports in the Communist-run island, many of them in or near tourism hotspots.

Regular air service was severed during the Cold War, and charter flights have been the only air links since.

US Secretary of State John Kerry hailed the watershed.

"The 1st US commercial flight to #Cuba since 1961, just over a year after raising the flag at US Embassy Havana. Another step fwd," he wrote on Twitter.

US Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, who was on the JetBlue flight, will meet with local officials during his visit, Cuba's transport ministry said.

Party in Florida

The Fort Lauderdale airport was in full party mode near Jet Blue's departure area -- a live salsa band blared Cuban favorites as passengers and bystanders broke into spontaneous dances.

There were cheers, applause and a sea of balloons as boarding for the historic flight got underway.

For some, there were also tears of joy.

"I am so proud, so overcome with emotion," said Domingo Santana, 53, who left Cuba when he was just six years old.

Since then, he said, "I've never been in my country. I don't know my country," adding: "It's a great opportunity."

History in the making

The JetBlue flight was flown by Captain Mark Luaces and First Officer Francisco Barreras, both Americans of Cuban descent, the airline said.

One passenger, Aleisy Barreda, 46, was overcome with emotion.

"This reopening has really benefitted us," she gushed.

"Not only in terms of the ticket prices, but also in terms of how much easier it is to purchase them," she said -- a reference to the rock bottom promotional ticket price starting at $99 one way, including checked bag.

"Now we only need more vacation time!"

The last regular commercial flight between the two countries took place in 1961, when air links fell victim to the Cold War.

Air travel between the United States and Cuba has been restricted to charter flights since 1979.

Washington and Havana agreed in February to restore direct commercial flights -- one of several watershed changes initiated in December 2014, when US President Barack Obama and Cuba's Raul Castro announced a thaw after more than 50 years of hostility.

Diplomatic relations were restored in July 2015.

Milestone

Washington still bans Americans from visiting Cuba as tourists, but travel is permitted for 12 other categories, including cultural and educational exchange.

The renewed links are a "milestone" in relations between the United States and Cuba, said Jorge Duany, director of the Cuban Research Institute at Florida International University.

Regular flights "will allow more fluid movement of people, goods, information and ideas between two places that are very close geographically but distant politically," he said.

Cuba: 'Hot' travel destination

Of the 3.5 million tourists in Cuba in 2015, only 161,000 were Americans.

However, that number was up 77 percent from the previous year and Americans are now expected to become a major component in a growth industry expected to reach 6.8 million visitors in 2018.

Travel agents said US interest in making the short journey to the island has skyrocketed.

"There's a lot of interest in Cuba. It's the hot, 'in' place right now," said Frank Gonzalez, owner of the Mambi travel agency which offers packages to the island from the United States that include cultural workshops.

Twenty daily routes to Havana are pending.

The airlines designated to fly to the nine Cuban airports -- not including Havana -- include American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Silver Airways, Southwest Airlines and Sun Country Airlines, according to the US government.

Flights departing from Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, Minneapolis and Philadelphia will head to the Cuban cities Camaguey, Cayo Coco, Cayo Largo, Cienfuegos, Holguin, Manzanillo, Matanzas, Santa Clara and Santiago de Cuba.

Kryon Q&A

QUESTION (2005): Dear Kryon: I read in a spiritual article that Fidel Castro's mission is to show how to do things without money, that this is the reason why he and the tropical revolution have been kept alive. Is that true? If not, then why didn’t Cuba change when Eastern Europe changed? Has Fidel Castro been working for the light or is he a part of the old energy?

Answer: This leader is of the old energy, but was needed for the time. The real reason was to bring the Soviet Union close to your shores in order to help with the year 2000 Armageddon scenario that didn’t happen. His earthly masters would have played a very important part in Cuba with the nuclear war you didn’t have.

That’s the whole reason, and now he exists as a relic of what didn’t happen. His society is poor, and the culture is not elevated or pleased with itself. This energy will change soon… sooner than you think. Then you will see a Cuba that has been “hiding” for a very long time, and also realize the unbalance and cultural richness that has been there all along.

"THE FUNDAMENTAL FRACTAL" – (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll)

Kryon.com, June 11, 2016

This live channelling was given in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Lee Carroll
To help the reader, this channelling has been revisited [by Lee and Kryon] to provide even clearer understanding. Sometime information is even added. Often what happens live has implied energy within it, which carries a kind of communication that the printed page does not. So enjoy this enhanced message given in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Greetings, dear ones, I am Kryon of Magnetic Service. We wish to take a moment to honor the science of today, of yesterday, which was presented in this place [speaking of the presentations during the conference].

For 26 years, I have given you messages over and over that may have sounded odd to you. When I've given you truths that were not yet validated, or told you things that were not the mainstream of thought, they were just things that had no basis. Year after year, slowly some of these things have come to fruition, but only now are you starting to see the Kryon message validated in this way. I want to fill in the gaps, just a little, in this final message of this day.

The science, as taught this weekend, is complete and is accurate. For those who have not been here who are listening to this, it sounds much like it was torn from a page of the many Kryon messages over time. We told you years ago about how long humanity really had been here. We gave you the timeline of humanity since what we called the seeding 200,000 years ago. We told you stories, perhaps, that you did not believe at that time. We gave you numbers to look at, and we even gave you unknown history to consider. Here it is right now, being validated in front of your eyes F the charts, the graphs, the research.

The scientists come only to the edge of truth, giving you what they can, and for good reason. The truths they speak of are things that need to be validated, proved, and researched. They can't do that yet, but they can take you to the edge of validation by showing you the evidence. Proof is more elusive, and science wants proof. So they present the research that piles up to conclusions of common sense and connecting the dots.

Indeed, it has been shown over and over that research would indicate that you may not have biologically come from anything here on Earth. The missing link remains missing. We said that years ago. We told you it would always be missing because you did not come from anything here, and now these words are being echoed in the very teachings of these last two days. These science teachers take you to the edge, but they don't tell you "who" might have been involved in your beginning. The esoterics of it all is my job, and I will start to complete the picture, which then will marry itself to the science.

The scientists are telling you about fractals. Fractals are the way of all physics, of all biology. If you ask a physicist about fractals, they will give you all of the mathematics - big to little, bigger, smaller - and all of it represents fractals of sameness. Biologists know that everything goes from small to large in fractals. It's simply the way of things. The teacher Gregg [Gregg Braden] comes up with the research that is absolutely, 100% accurate when he starts discussing the potential of time repeating itself, something you've heard in conversation all your life. It's obvious that it, indeed, does seem to repeat, but could it be that it does so in ways that you haven't even discovered? He's right.

I want to take it to another level. I sat in Turkey and gave you a message of unknown history. It's a good place to have given that channel. We told you you would discover civilizations that you have no record of, and that you don't believe have happened. We even told you that this planet has had numbers of civilizations before yours, and that they terminated themselves in various ways. Now here comes the science as presented today with the same message. It's starting then to wrap around itself, is it not, dear one? You've seen the teachings of the odd, esoteric things from me for years, and now you are hearing from others who are starting to validate them.  They are now being discussed, discovered, and researched - and the picture begins to sharpen.

I want to talk about the fractals of time for a moment. It's difficult if you were not here in the conference to go to the next step. However, it's important to know what was said, because we have spoken of these very things in the past. Our words didn't include fractals, but we spoke of a patterning and a system and the timing involved in what's happening.

The teacher, Gregg, has done his research well, and has proposed that the ripples of time come back upon themselves.* They present themselves in a way that would allow you to predict and calculate when they might occur again. They come in such a fashion that they reinforce one another and perhaps might be even stronger than when they occurred before. You even clearly see that the math of the fractals show you are at the end of a cycle, the one we have told you about. He's right, and you are.

The Mayans told you the same thing, and the others who had calendars much like the Maya long count said the same thing. The Aztecs and the Toltecs had a similar calendar. The prophecy was everywhere! So here's the big question: What keeps you from repeating the old history now? It comes upon you yet again and the fractals are there and the history is clear. The patterns are there, and they are the same ones over and over. Why won't you repeat them? Why won't you go to the final war and terminate humanity yet again? I'm going to fill it in esoterically for you right now.

Dear ones, there is a fractal that I'm going to call the fundamental. This fractal was not necessarily discussed yesterday, but I'm sure the teacher Gregg knows it. Sometimes when you're dealing with the discussion of patterning and repetition, you have that which would seem to be invisible, because it's not perceivable within your normal Human consciousness. The fundamental beginning fractal of time is the one that the others build upon. It's the start, the fundamental wave, and I will show it to you. Everything resonated to the fundamental in multiples. I will even give you some numbers to consider.

The fundamental fractal of your earth time is the precession of the equinoxes of the planet. All the ripples of potentials are built from it. This precession is caused by a physical wobble of the planet, which takes 25,630 years. That's how long it takes for one cycle, or wobble, to return to the start. Because it is so long, it can vary up to 1%, but not much more. The 25,630 years is the measurement of the wobble of the planet.

If you take the Mayan calendar long count, then exactly five Mayan calendars would fit into the 25,630-year wobble. The long count as described by the Maya is 5,125 years.* This also happens to be the length of time that your former unknown civilizations that we spoke of lasted before they would annihilate one another. It all starts to make sense. The fundamental fractal, dear ones, is the key to why this current cycle is different. It's because you're sitting on the end and beginning - the center point of the precession of the equinoxes. It's the first one in modern humanity. Time simply isn't just coming around again like it did before. This is the center. This is the prediction of the ancients and the Mayans, and that's why the old calendar stops now, and starts again with another long count.

This fundamental center, the precession of the equinoxes, gives an energy that none of the cycles within it did before. There is an allowance in this center fractal cycle for you to shift it and change it. The proof of this are the wildcards you see all around you. You already have started! The fall of the Soviet Union is a good example of a wild card. It's a shift of Human nature to begin a harmonious process of putting things together, instead of tearing them apart. This is especially profound when you see it done with the nations of the planet who used to be enemies for centuries. That's different! That's new! It's not going to repeat the way it did in the past.

"Well Kryon," some say, "you've got some ripples and fractals coming up that are dangerous. In fact, there is a major cycle starting in 2017 that looks ominous." Dear ones, I'll give you one main reason why this is now different from the other repetitive long counts. There's a 36-year window to the procession of the equinoxes. The window is 18 years to the center [which is December 21, 2012] and 18 years out of it. You're still in the last 18 years. You are still in the residual energy of the last long count. The time fractals are still there, and there are still major potentials being felt. Indeed, they still could happen, but there's more to this, and that's what I want to tell you. That's just one thing of many that will cause this time to be different. Let's ask the main question again: What makes it so different this time?

You're centered up on the prediction of the ancients and the end of the fundamental cycle of 25,630 years. This alone gives this time a special energy, but that's not all of it. Long ago, I told you who seeded you and we spoke about Human consciousness evolution beginning now, where it has been stagnant for so long. We told you about the Pleiadians being the source of your current DNA (and the missing link). We gave you a channelling called “The Compassion Factor” for you to know what the real difference is, and what's really going to change humanity - compassion. However, you're so linear and so 3D that you're saying, "Will DNA chemistry change? Can we watch it change?" The answer is of course it's going to change, but not like you think.

Metaphor coming: The farmer has a field that he has worked for years. He comes home and announces, "There's a new kind of crop. There's a wonderful kind of crop and it's going to be growing soon." So are you going to go out and see if the dirt has changed? No. It's the seeds that have changed. DNA is not what you think, and this information was given to you yesterday [referring to the information from Dr. Bruce Lipton]. DNA is not a static, unchanging group of chemicals. Instead, it's the framework blueprint for the Human body; it's the dirt that the evolution seeds grow in, and the seeds represent your consciousness, not the chemistry. So don't study the chemicals looking for Human evolution. Instead, study the consciousness shift of the planet. But that's not all.

I want you to start using spiritual logic, something that will be more obvious in time. The Pleiadians are your spiritual-seed creative parents. Simple. Most of the earth will not believe that. Your accepted creation story sounds just like it, and even the timing is the same, but it can't involve an E.T., to be believed by most. The very thought of extra-terrestrials always involves those who come and conquer you or hurt you. This is your bias and is a reflection of your own Human consciousness and what your brief history has been. You do it, so you expect all life forms to do it.

We've said this before. The Pleiadians have a civilization that is millions of years earlier than yours, dear ones. What do you think that might that look like? It is a very advanced civilization that has gone through what you've gone through. They have a very high, wise consciousness that can even control physics through thought, and they came here with a divine plan to give you the knowledge of dark and light and the free choice of duality so that you can work the puzzle. Their God is your God - the creative source. That's what they did here, and they are like your biological seed parents, and they care. They must be hands-off, but they care.

The Pleiadians themselves gave a time limit for your growth, and it's the one you are looking at right now. It is the start and end of the precession of the equinoxes, the middle of the fundamental cycle, 25,630 years. You had several civilizations that started and stopped during that time, and if you hadn't made it by now, you weren't going to make it at all. This was the last chance.

You started to change in the last decades, and by the late '80s it was obvious that you were going to shift. The Harmonic Convergence of 1987 was a turning point. I then came in 1989. At the beginning of 1992, you dissolved the Cold War. It was starting to happen!

When the Pleiadians seeded you, they set up a system in case you would make it, and we have given that information to you before. It's called the nodes and the nulls of the planet. The nodes and the nulls just sat there dormant as time capsules, waiting for the right time to activate. That time has arrived, and we have identified all of them, and they are starting to open.

"Kryon, we have never heard of this before. This is so esoteric, and we have no knowledge of this. There are no ancient writings that have indicated it either." Dear one, use your logic. Of course you didn't know about it, because you hadn't reached that finish line of December 21, 2012! This was information for those who would make it, not for an earth that was always on the edge of destroying itself. We saw what was happening where you disarmed the third world war of your civilization. The proof that it was a last-minute turnaround is that everyone is still expecting it! It's almost like waiting for "the other shoe to drop," right?

I want to ask you a logical question. When you have children, and it's time for them to ride a bicycle, what is the process? First, you get them a bike. Then what is next? Do you hand them the bike and say, “Good luck, kid! I know you may fall over and hurt yourself, but that's just the way bikes work.”? No! Loving parents don't do that. Instead, you give them training wheels and you work with them. You hold the bicycle until they get the feel of it; you run alongside the bike with the training wheels engaged until they've got it right. You smile with glee as they get the balance that you know every child will eventually have, and then they pedal off without you as you cheer them on.

Well, dear ones, the fundamental fractal is at hand, and the training wheels are the nodes and the nulls. They open, activate, pair up, and begin to wipe away some of the negativity and darkness of this planet in order to give you a fast track to a higher consciousness. We've been telling you this for years - how they work and how they remove the old energy via the Crystalline Grid, the Gaia Grid. This entire conference is about remembering, and yet many say, "Remembering what?" I'll tell you what to remember. I want you to remember the original information the Pleiadians gave you when you got here! That's what you are remembering, old soul, and that is what this node is about to pour out into the Crystalline Grid. It begins to erase the remembrance of war and suffering from this planet. It's going to change the time fractals themselves, almost a restart for the Crystalline Grid.

What you must know is that the Crystalline Grid is partially responsible for remembering the old fractals of time. These are the fractals that say history will repeat itself, even though you are creating a new future and voiding them. When they start to be erased and reframed, it's like a restart of the energy of humanity.

I want to ask you, wouldn't you do that for your children? Doesn't it make sense that the Pleiadians, who brought you the beautiful energy of the love of God, would also provide help to get through this new and unknown evolution of consciousness? Don't you think they would give you the training wheels? Doesn't it start to make esoteric sense that this new fundamental cycle beginning would carry something beautiful if you made it? Well, here it is, and it has arrived, and this cycle beginning is different!

Don't let anybody tell you, "Here it comes again. We are overdue for war, so it's coming!" Just because you did it before doesn't mean it's guaranteed to happen again. This cycle is different.

That has been the message for 26 years, not necessarily presented in those terms, but it was the message right away in my first publication in Chapter One of Kryon Book One: "There will be no World War III. There will be no Armageddon. The old prophecies will not happen." Twenty-six years ago, we saw your shift coming. The fundamental fractal is recalibrating in readiness to start again with a different energy set, and this is why you're not going to repeat the past.

The timing of the training wheels duration is up to you. You have free choice and can make it as difficult or as easy as you want. Even with training wheels, you may still fall over, but with the help brought to you in this new energy, you'll get right back up and keep going. It can be a long haul for an older humanity to start a new system of consciousness. I'll say it again: Two steps forward, one step back. It's part of a new Human and you're in the right place at the right time.

Don't you feel it? What you heard today and what you heard yesterday is the paradigm of truth. Doesn't it ring true that something special and different is going on? And I'll tell you what it is: You are going on! You have a higher consciousness because you sit here asking yourself, “What am I feeling that is so different?” The difficulties you've been through regarding the recalibrations we've talked about are all part of this slow shift into a new consciousness. You are going to sail right through the old fractal and potentials!

Congratulations, dear old soul, for coming into this planet at this time, knowing these would be difficult times. You weren't going to miss the party, were you?

And so it is.

Colombia ceasefire ends half-century war with FARC

Bogota (AFP) - A historic ceasefire came into effect in Colombia Monday, ending a 52-year war between the FARC rebels and the government that claimed more than 250,000 lives.

The full ceasefire ordered by President Juan Manuel Santos and the head of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), Timoleon Jimenez, began at midnight (0500 GMT Monday).

"This August 29 a new phase of history begins for Colombia. We silenced the guns. THE WAR WITH THE FARC IS OVER!" Santos wrote on Twitter one minute after midnight.

A message from the official FARC account at the same time was more restrained: "From this moment on the bilateral and definitive ceasefire begins."

In a statement to reporters in Cuba, where peace talks were held, Jimenez said he had ordered all commanders and units "and each one of our combatants to definitively cease fire and hostilities against the Colombian state."

Santos had issued similar orders Thursday to the Colombian military.

The ceasefire is the first in which both sides are committed to a definite end to the fighting.

"The ceasefire is really one more seal on the end of the conflict. It is the test of fire," said Carlos Alfonso Velazquez, a security expert at the University of La Sabana.

Peace referendum

The conflict began in 1964 with the launch of the FARC, a Marxist guerrilla group born out of a peasant uprising. It has left 260,000 dead, 45,000 missing and 6.9 million uprooted from their homes.

To end the war with the FARC for good, Colombians must now vote in an October 2 referendum on the peace accord reached in Havana after nearly four years of talks.

Santos said the exact question that will be put to voters in the referendum would be announced "in the coming days."

"We are on the verge of perhaps the most important political decision of our lives," he said in a speech on Saturday.

Opinion polls show Colombians are divided ahead of the referendum.

Santos's top rival, former president Alvaro Uribe, is leading a campaign to vote "no" to the peace deal. He says a special justice system envisaged for crimes committed during the conflict would give FARC fighters impunity.

Opponents question the FARC's commitment to peace.

"I don't think we can believe them," said Felipe Giraldo, a 25-year-old unemployed man in Bogota.

Others have a high personal stake in the vote.

Adelaida Bermudez, 50, hopes it will bring home her daughter, a FARC fighter for the past nine years.

"I hope we'll have peace... so the children come home," she said in Gaitania, in the central region where the FARC was born.

Demobilization

Santos and Jimenez are due to sign the peace agreement sometime between September 20 and 30 -- possibly at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, said Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin.

The end of hostilities will be followed by a six-month demobilization process.

Starting Monday, the FARC's estimated 7,500 fighters will head to collection points to surrender their weapons under UN supervision.

Guerrillas who refuse to demobilize and disarm "will be pursued with all the strength of the state forces," Santos told El Espectador newspaper.

Before the demobilization, the FARC will convene its leaders and troops one last time before transforming into "a legal political movement," according to a statement published on Saturday.

Reconciliation

The territorial and ideological conflict has drawn in various left- and right-wing armed groups and gangs.

Efforts to launch peace talks with a smaller rebel group, the National Liberation Army (ELN), have yet to bear fruit.

But with the FARC ordering a ceasefire, the conflict appears to be reaching an end.

"We wish to express our clear and definite will for reconciliation," said Jimenez, known by the nom de guerre Timochenko, in Havana.

"Rivalries and resentment must remain in the past. Today more than ever we regret that so much death and pain has been caused by the war. Today more than ever we wish to embrace (the military and police) as compatriots and start to work together for a new Colombia."
