“….. 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. …

Could ASEAN produce an Asian Robert Schuman?

Southeast Asian nations aspire to EU-style economic union, but do they have what it takes? 

Taiwan News

By Margriet Krijtenburg,, 2009-03-14 12:33 AM     

Provider Southeast Asian nations living in the shadow of the world's fastest growing economies - those of China and India - want to form a single market along the lines of the European Union. Leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations met at the end of last month and signed trade deals and agreements to form an integrated economic community, without a common currency, by 2015.

For most of its 42-year history Asean has been a toothless tiger, making decisions by consensus. But two years ago it adopted a new charter, and this year it plans to launch a human rights body. The economic union it has announced would give substance to the group and is an ideal worth striving for. 

Along the path of closer union Asean could benefit from the experiences of the European Union, its successes and failures. The key question is whether the Asian countries will be willing to surrender part of their sovereignty to a common institution such as an Asian Commission, as European countries do to the European Commission. 

It is no small thing for a country to sacrifice some of its autonomy for the common good. Europe was able to do so because it had the right men at the right time at the right place. The French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Robert Schuman, the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, Konrad Adenauer, the Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alcide de Gasperi and the man behind the Schuman Declaration, Jean Monnet, were ready to act and reconcile right after the Second World War. Europe was crying out for reconstruction, was in danger of being trodden down by the communists and feared a possible third world war if Germany should re-arm. 

These men were all four convinced Catholics and envisioned a unification that would provide peace and stability based on the social doctrine of the Catholic Church. This implied a policy of reconciliation that would at the same time provide for interdependence among the member states. 

Do the diverse Asian cultures involved in Asean - those of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei Darussalam, Vietnam, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Cambodia - have the civilisational resources to cooperate and reconcile, as Europe, with all its imperfections, has done? Would the economic cooperation it aspires to reflect common cultural values such as the founders of the EU shared? 

Within the broad context of post-war Europe's Christian civilisation Catholic social doctrine stressed the key values of human dignity (not just rights) and solidarity (rather than communism as the alternative to rugged individualism). Economic cooperation among member states of the European Community would be the means to safeguard and increase human dignity and man's further development. Solidarity went even further: the European Commission would be the supranational organ to which the member states would hand over part of their sovereignty on the issues agreed upon. The European Court of Justice would provide the juridical framework and take binding decisions for all EU members concerned even beyond national interests. 

In the fields of economics and legal order the EU has been a great success. The EU is known worldwide as an economic giant. Also from the juridical point of view the EU is exemplary in that Community law is directly effective in the national legal order and national legal procedures. This implies that private parties may rely on the application of directly effective provisions of community law or judgments of the court of justice in their national legal order. Community law has priority over national law. This juridical aspect makes European law unique. 

Europe forgetting its identity 

Arguably this daring project has succeeded because the European Union is the secular heir of Christendom. Is there anything comparable in the background of the Asian nations? 

Of course, Europe cannot draw forever on the capital of a civilisation it no longer really acknowledges. Although the EU nowadays stands strong in many areas, it shows a surprising lack of political face, and this is due to neglecting its roots and identity. European member states find it very hard to agree on issues like enlargement of the Union, the degree to which to live up to solidarity, the need to live up to a Christian concept of human dignity and other issues that refer to the order of morality and politics. 

The EU is increasingly aware of its lack of identity and is beginning to recognize its own inclination to focus primarily on the economy as such instead of what the economy is for that is, the citizen and his or her human dignity with its transcendent link to God. To regain this focus on man would also bring an attitude of greater solidarity towards countries inside and outside Europe. 

Asian countries could learn from Europe's successes and failures. They could take the way of economic co-operation as an example in so far as it is not to the detriment of the citizen. Also an Asian Court of Justice along the lines of the European Court of Justice would be needed for the success of Asian unification. They further need to be willing to surrender part of their sovereignty to a supranational organ like the Asian Commission. This will necessarily foster their interdependence. 

Asian nations can thus succeed at economic, legal and political unification if and I would say, only if they have a common identity that transcends those categories and a morality by which it is supported. 

One more thing seems necessary: wise and committed leadership. Is there an Asian Robert Schuman to take up the cause of Asian unification? Asia is hit severely like all other parts of the world by the financial crisis. So now is the right time for the Asian Schuman to stand up, to shake hands and take the lead in this initiative.
