“….. 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. …

Taiwan-US film Baby Steps promotes understanding of LGBT families

The Taiwanese-American director of Baby Steps, a Taiwan-US produced film that is currently being shot in Taiwan, said Monday that he hoped his film would promote more acceptance of gay and lesbian families.

"I want audiences all over the world to understand that love and family come in many different ways. This movie is about a new kind of family," Barney Cheng told CNA on the sidelines of a press conference in Taipei.

Written, directed and acted in by Cheng, Baby Steps is about a gay couple living in the United States who want to get married and raise their own child through a surrogate mother.

The Taiwanese mother of the character played by Cheng struggles, however, to accept her son's sexuality due to her traditional upbringing.

The comedy-drama stars veteran Taiwanese actress Kuei Ya-lei as the mother and Cheng and American actor Michael Adam Hamilton as the couple.

The film is being produced by Taiwan's Hsu Li-kong and Lan Ta-peng and Britain's Stephen Israel and has received funding from Taiwan's Ministry of Culture.

"I hope this movie will entertain the audience as well as make this world a better place for everybody," said the 42-year-old director. "I want to inspire more gay people to come out," Cheng said, adding "I want to inspire more acceptance and celebration of different families."

He said that he also hopes to let the world know that Taiwan is a "very open-minded" place. "I think Taiwan is the only country in the world that is able to take the risk to make this movie," Cheng said.

Baby Steps is Cheng's first feature film. He had previously starred in Woody Allen's Hollywood Ending.

As for his view of the recent same-sex marriage debate in Taiwan, Cheng said he was happy that people are having the discussion. "I would love for this movie to lead to more discussion because I think people should talk about it."

To better portray her character, actress Kuei Ya-lei said she met with the woman who inspired the character — Cheng's mother — and listened to her talk about her struggles coming to terms with her son's sexuality.

"Although it is a very difficult role to play, I love it," said Kuei, who had played a similar role in Ang Lee's 1993 award-winning film The Wedding Banquet. She also starred as a mother in the 1993 film, which is about a gay Taiwanese-American man who marries a woman to please his parents.

Cheng told reporters that if The Wedding Banquet is about a son's coming out story, then his film is about "a mother's 'coming out.'"

"The son wants to stand in the sunlight, but the mother is hiding in the closet and afraid to come out," the director said.

Hamilton, meanwhile, said the film is about accepting differences.

"Different doesn't mean bad. Different doesn't mean we should get rid of it. As a people, as a world, we need to realize that we need to accept the difference, to understand other people, to really make an effort to see what are they going through," he said.

Producer Hsu Li-kong said he decided to produce the film because he was moved by the script and the passion of the director. "I hope they (gay people) can live in the sunlight and pursue happiness and basic human rights like us," Hsu said.

The film, with a production cost of around US$2 million, will be shot in Taiwan and Los Angeles. It is expected to hit theaters in 2015.

Also attending the press conference Monday were actress Yvette Mercedes, who plays Cheng's friend, and Taiwanese actor Patrick Lee, who stars as Cheng's brother.
