“….. 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. …

Frisbee tournament opens up North Korea

Deutsche Welle, 4 July 2012

In August, Pyongyang's second ever international Ultimate Frisbee tournament will take place. Some people are hopeful the game will improve relations, but others believe it is putting more money in the regime's coffers.

Eric Fish is what some might consider a veteran of Ultimate Frisbee. The Missouri native has been playing the sport, a mixture of basketball and American football, for around a decade. He says he had never played Ultimate, as its known for short, in any memorable location - that is until last year when he saw an advertisement for a tournament in the North Korean capital Pyongyang.

"I couldn't pass it up," said Fish, 27, who studies journalism in Beijing and claims to have a "morbid fascination" with socialist and communist states.

"There is a tendency for bad news (about North Korea), because that's what the media covers. I assumed there was more nuance to it."

Fish says he was not disappointed. He was joined by about 60 other players, comprised of Western tourists, members of Pyongyang's small expat community and around 15 North Koreans that work for a state-run tourism agency.

"I was amazed. They had never played Frisbee before," he said. "They picked it up pretty quick."

In August, Ultimate will return to North Korea in what organizers, Beijing-based Koryo Tours, hope will become an annual sports exchange. The company runs other adventure travel packages to the North such as football (soccer), cycling and cricket. Koryo charges 1180 Euros for the 5-day Ultimate tour, which includes stops at North Korean historical sites as well as a chance to teach Frisbee to middle school children.

 most foreigners
"Frisbee is like hula hoop, in that we consider it one of the most fundamental and universal things, but there are a lot of people in North Korea who have never seen a Frisbee before," says Koryo Tours' Simon Cockerell.

Filling the regime's coffers?

But some analysts say the money tourists pay to go on these excursions to North Korea only lines the pockets of the ruling regime.

"Such activities have conditioned us to be optimistic and generous to North Korea while North Korea has taken advantage of the outside world's cash," says Lee Sung-yoon who lectures in Korean Studies at Tufts University's Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in the US.

Lee says he does not oppose these kinds of visits in general, but "it's a bit unrealistic to believe that it will lead to some sort of diplomatic breakthrough," he said.

Other observers say that Ultimate is an especially fitting kind of sports exchange between nations with a lack of trust.

Sports diplomacy

"There's a code of conduct, called Spirit of the Game, which is basically be honest, play the right way. That's a part of the culture of Ultimate and I think spreading that is not a bad thing in any way," says Andray Abrahamian who helped develop the Pyongyang tournament with Koryo Tours.

Abrahamian, 35, is Executive Director of the Choson Exchange, an NGO that supports economic development in North Korea. He says due to the North's opaque system, doing work there, whether organizing a sports match or holding workshops on financial management with government officials, presents challenges. "It's hard to know where the buck stops," he says. But by holding more sports programs like the Ultimate tournament, in which North Koreans and Americans play as teammates, Abrahamian believes a cultural and political divide can be overcome.

"This is just one tiny contribution to the normalizing of interactions between North Koreans and foreigners," he said.

Spirit of the game

As for Eric Fish, who played in last year's Pyongyang Ultimate tournament, he says while he can't be sure how much change his trip made at a diplomatic level, he is confident that at least for the North Koreans he played alongside, their opinions about Americans or Westerners did improve.

"Once you're playing, you forget who is from where," he said.

Fish adds that any sense of national allegiance or rivalry was lost during a brief moment of celebration with a North Korean teammate; an instance that still seems surreal to him.

"She ran over, gave me a big old hug," Fish said. "Wow, getting a hug from a North Korean woman who just scored a point in Ultimate Frisbee. Everything about that situation makes no sense at all."
