“….. 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. …

Europe's engagement in Southeast Asia

The EU has huge economic and security interests in East and Southeast Asia, a reason why it is active in the ASEAN Regional Forum. Critics, however, argue that Europe is lacking a political strategy.

Deutsche Welle, 11 Aug 2014

The foreign ministers of the ten-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) conducted a three-day meeting from August 8 to 10 to discuss the security situation in East and Southeast Asia. Held under the motto: "Moving forward in Unity to a Peaceful and Prosperous Community," this was the 47th meeting of the bloc's foreign ministers.

The ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), which this year took place in Myanmar's capital Naypyidaw, is the only institutionalized security dialogue forum in the Asia-Pacific region. Even US Secretary of State John Kerry and EU Foreign Policy Chief Catherine Ashton attended the meeting. Also present were the foreign ministers of China, Russia, Australia, India and Japan.

The territorial disputes between some ASEAN members and China over parts of the South China Sea featured predominantly in the talks. Some Southeast Asian countries, along with China, lay competing claims to islands and territories located in the area, which is believed to be rich in fish stocks as well as contain huge oil and gas reserves.

An initiative put forward by the United States and the Philippines aimed at maintaining the status quo in the island dispute and preventing unilateral actions, until a solution is found, was rejected by China at the Regional Forum meeting. Although the EU was represented in Naypyidaw, there wasn't much international coverage about it.

The EU is ASEAN's third largest trading
partner after China and Japan
EU interests

The EU has been increasing its engagement in Southeast Asia for years. In 2012, the 28-member club adopted the "Guidelines on the EU's Foreign and Security Policy in East Asia," with the aim of intensifying exchanges with the region. In the guidelines, the ASEAN nations are described as a "natural counterpart for the EU." Furthermore, the strategy paper stated that regional summits, such as the ARF, deserved special attention from the EU.

The main reason for the enhanced engagement are the significant economic interests the EU has in the region. The volume of bilateral trade between the EU and ASEAN in 2013 amounted to around 167 billion euros, thus making the EU the regional grouping's third biggest trading partner after China and Japan.

Europe's role

The conflict over the South China Sea and the nationalism associated with it are identified both by the 2012 strategy paper as well as the chief operating officer of the European External Action Service, David O'Sullivan, as the biggest risk factor. "The EU has high stakes in the region and we are concerned about recent developments which have raised tensions."

Although the EU has not taken any position with respect to the territorial claims, it has a clear view on how the disputes should be resolved: namely through cooperation within the framework of international law, particularly the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

The strengths of the EU as an "active and constructive member of the ARF" lie in this area, says O'Sullivan. "It is true that we as the EU don't have a leading role on hard security issues given the absence of major military assets or bases in the region." But it could also be an advantage, he added.

"We are seen as engaged, but not threatening; active but without a geo-political agenda." In this way, the EU has a niche, in which it could engage as a super-partner and not as another superpower, he stressed, adding that the EU engagement is also welcomed by the ASEAN nations.

Lacking strategy

For observers such as Gerhard Will, Southeast Asia expert at the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP), the EU's engagement is lacking in policy. "Not all problems can be solved by a workshop," he said. "To a certain extent the conferences are a diversionary tactic from concrete measures."

The EU should position itself more clearly, particularly regarding international law, Will added. If the Philippines are now seeking a clarification of territorial disputes before an international court, "the EU should make it clear that this is the right way to solve this kind of problem."

 South China Sea figured predominantly
during the talks
According to Will, the EU is hesitant because of concerns that the 28-member group will be met with resistance from China. "It's a weakness of the EU that they don't want to upset anyone and ultimately don't pursue any clear political strategy," he says.

May-Britt Stumbaum, director of the EU-China Project at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), agrees with this view. The EU lacks confidence and leadership ambition, particularly with regards to China, she told DW. "Europe is losing out on shaping the global agenda and is not protecting its own interests."
