“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… 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. …

Dictators are only human: North Korean artist

Deutsche Welle, 3 October 2012

North Korea isn't known for its art. Most images there either extol the government or criticize its enemies. But one North Korean defector is coming to grips with his past and using his canvases as a political stage.

Song Byeok has a small studio on the second floor of a warehouse in Seoul. The 42-year-old says it is where he goes to research and read and gets inspiration for his art.

Song Byeok is not his real name, though. He says his nom de plum is a part of his new life, one that started when he defected to South Korea from North Korea a decade ago.

His past is the largest influence in his art. And it has created a lot of buzz around his name. His work has appeared in galleries in Seoul, Atlanta and Washington, DC, USA.

His paintings are bright and vivid. Many are symbolic - one is of a woman in a red dress, hanging onto a police officer's leg. Another shows a man staring out from behind a shattered blue, red and white North Korean flag. Others contain slogans in Korean, such as freedom and human rights.

But there's one painting that got him the most attention. It's what you might call a unique portrait: From the neck down, it's Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch. But on top of the body is the pudgy face of the late North Korean ruler Kim Jong Il.

"I had no idea that people would love this painting so much," Byeok says. "I just wanted to show that Kim Jong Il is only a human being. North Korean people seem to live on another planet because they're kept isolated by the government. I wanted to say that we are living in a globalized society and I think Marilyn Monroe is a good symbol of that."

Life in North Korea

Making fun of the North Korea's "Dear Leader" is taboo in his home country. Byeok says he would have received an automatic death sentence had he created the painting back home.

Before Song Byeok defected to the south, he was conscripted to create propaganda art for the North Korean government. He made posters with revolutionary slogans, with red flags waving in the background.

He says he was proud to create that kind of art. He thought he was doing the work of his leaders, who he thought were like gods.

But that all changed when North Korea fell into famine in the 1990s.

"My father and I crossed the Tumen River into China to find food," he recalls. "But when we tried to cross back over, the river had flooded. My father was suddenly swept away. I called out for help, but instead, the North Korean border guards arrested me and put me in prison. That's when I realized there was something wrong with this system."

His painting of Kim as Marilyn made Song Byeok famous

During 4 months in a labor camp, Song Byeok watched people die around him. He even lost most of his right index finger because of a bad infection. It took him awhile to re-learn how to use a paintbrush.

In 2002, he fled to China again, but this time made it all the way to South Korea. There he went to Hongik University, one of the nation's top art schools, where teachers welcomed his style of painting - what some call socialist realism.

Freedom and success

Byeok's first exhibition in 2011 was a huge success. Though some of his professors and classmates had advised him not to show certain pieces, such as the Kim-Marilyn one, "But I didn't listen and did it anyway." It got him a lot of media coverage and he was dubbed the anti-North Korea artist.

Song Byeok says he now feels what real freedom is like and by critiquing his former leaders it helps him come to grips with his earlier life. But he doesn't want to only be known as the anti-North Korean artist.

And he is looking for new motifs. Despite the fact that the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il didn't respect his people while alive, Byeok says he'll show some respect for his former leader now that he's dead.

"In the end, Kim Jong Il proved to be like any other human. I will honor his death and will no longer paint any pictures of him. There's no need to parody him anymore."

Although Song Byeok says he won't make fun of Kim Jong Il anymore, that doesn't mean his son, new leader Kim Jong Un, is off the hook.
