“….. 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. …

North Korean Comedy Romances the World From Pyongyang

A romantic comedy may be unusual fare from a country better known for exporting snarling rhetoric.

But for one of the co-producers of the new North Korean movie “Comrade Kim Goes Flying,” such unconventional projects are business as usual.

“There is no great big, bloody mission here,” said Briton Nick Bonner, 50, who has been working with the reclusive state since the early 1990s. “It is about engagement.”

Engagement with North Korea is something Bonner knows well. He has guided more than 12,000 international tourists around the country — including Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler — co-produced award-winning documentaries and even taken a British women’s football team to play in Pyongyang. There are also some Singaporeans among his clients.

“Comrade Kim Goes Flying,” his first feature film, played at the Toronto and Pyongyang film festivals in September. Its South Korean premiere was at the Busan International Film Festival earlier this month.

It follows the odyssey of an attractive coal miner, (played by Han Jong Shim) whose dream is to become a trapeze artist in Pyongyang. Standing in her way is an arrogant acrobat (Pak Chang Guk), who refuses to believe that “Comrade Kim” has the right stuff — until he falls in love with her.

South Koreans, normally prohibited from watching North Korean media, were charmed.

“It was a bit like South Korean soap operas and home dramas with family settings,” said audience member Hwang Yun Mi, a 32-year-old teacher of English and film studies. “It was identifiable; it was not alien to me.”

The feel-good, “girl-power” flick, which cost 1 million euros ($1.3 million) to produce, is a three-way collaboration between North Korea filmmaker Kim Gwang Hun, Oscar-nominated Belgian filmmaker Anja Daelemans, and Bonner, whose Beijing-based company, Koryo Group, has been operating in North Korea since 1993.

“I had helped at the Pyongyang film festival and seen how ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ was received in 2004,” Bonner said. “It is about putting out a universal story with universal values; something that could be written and seen and understood by people outside North Korea.”

It has been a winding path for the Briton, who never specialized in North Korea academically and who, to this day, speaks the language only haltingly. His affair with the country came by chance.

Bonner, who originally planned to be a landscape architect, traveled to Beijing to visit a friend after graduating. While there, he played football with and befriended a North Korean who invited him to visit his country. After the visit, the friend — who comes from a family with good connections — suggested Bonner establish a tour company to bring Westerners in. The rest is history.

Koryo’s 13 employees in Beijing are Westerners and Chinese; in North Korea the firm works with the state-run Korea International Travel Company. While there are bigger Chinese tour companies, Koryo is believed to be the largest company taking non-Chinese into North Korea. It has since expanded into art, sporting and cultural projects, as well as tourism to other off-beat destinations, such as the Russian Far East and Central Asia.

Bonner has also worked on three British-produced North Korean TV documentaries, including “The Game Of Their Lives,” about the North Korean 1966 World Cup Squad which beat Italy in a shock upset, and “Crossing The Line,” about the last living American defector in North Korea.

Bonner said the North Korean officials he deals with are completely trustworthy.

“I have never been cheated by the Korean colleagues we work with,” he said.

His Korean contacts have proven tolerant of Westerners’ foibles, he said, citing the case of an American tourist who insisted on walking around without an escort.

“The guide said, ‘It is a pity he wasted his money, he has already made up his mind about our country,’” Bonner recalled. “The maturity was shown by the guide.”

On the more positive side, Bonner said some of his clients have played cricket and Morris danced (an English folk dance) in North Korea; one client even proposed to his fiancee there. And once, a marching battalion of soldiers, agog at the Western tourists, broke ranks and waved.

When it comes to questions of dictatorship, repression, human rights abuse, starvation and nuclear arms, Bonner declined comment, though he admitted operating in Pyongyang had difficulties.

“If you can make a romantic comedy in North Korea, you can run the six-party talks,” he said.

He was, however, more critical of the way the international community is driving Pyongyang further into isolation.

“A consistent policy of critical engagement would suit us,” he said. “We prove that you can engage with North Korean people.”

And his next adventure? Having taken Middlesbrough’s Women’s Team to North Korea, he is keen to do the same thing in reverse.

“I’d love to take a North Korean women’s football team to Europe.” he said. “Who wouldn’t?”
