The Declaration of Human Freedom

Archangel Michael (Via Steve Beckow), Feb. 19, 2011

Every being is a divine and eternal soul living in a temporal body. Every being was alive before birth and will live after death.

Every soul enters into physical life for the purpose of experience and education, that it may, in the course of many lifetimes, learn its true identity as a fragment of the Divine.

Life itself is a constant process of spiritual evolution and unfoldment, based on free choice, that continues until such time as we realize our true nature and return to the Divine from which we came.

No soul enters life to serve another, except by choice, but to serve its own purpose and that of the Divine from which it came.

All life is governed by natural and universal laws which precede and outweigh the laws of humanity. These laws, such as the law of karma, the law of attraction, and the law of free will, are decreed by God to order existence and assist each person to achieve life’s purpose.

No government can or should survive that derives its existence from the enforced submission of its people or that denies its people their basic rights and freedoms.

Life is a movement from one existence to another, in varied venues throughout the universe and in other universes and dimensions of existence. We are not alone in the universe but share it with other civilizations, most of them peace-loving, many of whom are more advanced than we are, some of whom can be seen with our eyes and some of whom cannot.

The evidence of our five senses is not the final arbiter of existence. Humans are spiritual as well as physical entities and the spiritual side of life transcends the physical. God is a Spirit and the final touchstone of God’s Truth is not physical but spiritual. The Truth is to be found within.

God is one and, because of this, souls are one. They form a unity. They are meant to live in peace and harmony together in a “common unity” or community. The use of force to settle affairs runs contrary to natural law. Every person should have the right to conduct his or her own affairs without force, as long as his or her choices do not harm another.

No person shall be forced into marriage against his or her will. No woman shall be forced to bear or not bear children, against her will. No person shall be forced to hold or not hold views or worship in a manner contrary to his or her choice. Nothing vital to existence shall be withheld from another if it is within the community’s power to give.

Every person shall retain the ability to think, speak, and act as they choose, as long as they not harm another. Every person has the right to choose, study and practice the education and career of their choice without interference, provided they not harm another.

No one has the right to kill another. No one has the right to steal from another. No one has the right to force himself or herself upon another in any way.

Any government that harms its citizens, deprives them of their property or rights without their consent, or makes offensive war upon its neighbors, no matter how it misrepresents the situation, has lost its legitimacy. No government may govern without the consent of its people. All governments are tasked with seeing to the wellbeing of their citizens. Any government which forces its citizens to see to its own wellbeing without attending to theirs has lost its legitimacy.

Men and women are meant to live fulfilling lives, free of want, wherever they wish and under the conditions they desire, providing their choices do not harm another and are humanly attainable.

Children are meant to live lives under the beneficent protection of all, free of exploitation, with unhindered access to the necessities of life, education, and health care.

All forms of exploitation, oppression, and persecution run counter to universal and natural law. All disagreements are meant to be resolved amicably.

Any human law that runs counter to natural and universal law is invalid and should not survive. The enactment or enforcement of human law that runs counter to natural and universal law brings consequences that cannot be escaped, in this life or another. While one may escape temporal justice, one does not escape divine justice.

All outcomes are to the greater glory of God and to God do we look for the fulfillment of our needs and for love, peace, and wisdom. So let it be. Aum/Amen.

… 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. …

Obama rejects faith-based discrimination amid travel ban uproar

Yahoo – AFP, January 30, 2017

by protests that have taken place across the country (AFP Photo/JIM WATSON)

Washington (AFP) - Former US president Barack Obama expressed his objections Monday to any faith-based discrimination, in an apparent dig at his successor Donald Trump's ban on nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries entering the country.

"With regard to comparisons to president Obama's foreign policy decisions, as we've heard before, the president fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion," his spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement.

The statement -- Obama's first on politics since leaving the White House on January 20 -- came amid an uproar over Trump's order on Friday to tighten controls on immigrants from the seven countries and to temporarily halt all resettlement of refugees.

The former president is "heartened" by protests that have taken place across the country, Lewis said.

"Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake," the statement added.

The statement came after the White House defended its policy, which saw more than 100 travelers detained at US airports and hundreds more blocked abroad, as essentially the same as previous rules implemented during Obama's presidency.

Former Obama national security spokesman Ben Rhodes said in a series of tweets that the tight vetting of Iraqi refugees in 2011 was not the same as an executive order (EO) like Trump's banning immigrants from Iraq.

"There was no ban on Iraqis in 2011. Anyone pushing that line is hiding behind a lie because they can't defend the EO," Rhodes said.

"More inter-agency vetting of Iraqi refugees in response to threat is standard process. EO banning people from several countries is not."

Former presidents traditionally do not weigh in publicly on a current president's statements or policies.

Before Obama left office, he said any effort to enforce systematic discrimination, erode voting rights, muzzle the press or round up young immigrants, would cause him to speak out.

"There's a difference between that normal functioning of politics and certain issues or certain moments where I think our core values may be at stake," he said at his final press conference in mid-January.

Trump, Saudi king back 'rigorously' enforcing Iran nuclear deal

Yahoo – AFP, January 30, 2017

Washington (AFP) - President Donald Trump and Saudi King Salman want to "rigorously" enforce the Iran nuclear deal, the White House said Sunday, despite the US leader's long opposition to the agreement.

The pair, in a phone conversation, also spoke of the need to address Iran's "destabilizing regional activities," fight the spread of "radical Islamic terrorism" and establish safe zones in war-ravaged Syria and Yemen, the White House statement read.

No further details were provided about those plans.

The official Saudi Press Agency early on Monday confirmed that Trump had called Salman.

It made no mention of Iran but said the views of the two leaders "were identical" on issues discussed during the call, including "confronting those who seek to undermine security and stability in the region and interfere in the internal affairs of other states."

Riyadh regularly accuses Tehran of regional interference.

SPA said Trump and Salman also agreed on "formulating the appropriate mechanisms" for countering "terrorism" and extremism.

Trump opposed the nuclear agreement signed by Israel's arch-foe Iran and world powers, including the United States, in 2015 and has said he wants to undo it.

Some of his key nominees have adopted an openly anti-Iran stance, including secretary of state candidate Rex Tillerson, who is seeking a complete revision of the accord.

Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu said last month that there were many ways of "undoing" the Iran nuclear deal and that he would discuss that with Trump.

But before he left office, former president Barack Obama warned against rowing back the pact, emphasizing its "significant and concrete results."

The deal places curbs on Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions.

Tehran is a major foe of both Washington and Riyadh. The Sunni majority Saudi kingdom is engaged in a power struggle with the Shiite country for dominance in the region.

Salman and Trump invited each other to visit their respective capitals, the Saudi Press Agency said.

"The two leaders agreed to schedule the visits in the coming period", it said.

The United States and Saudi Arabia have a decades-old relationship based on the exchange of American security for Saudi oil.

But ties between Riyadh and Washington became increasingly frayed during the eight-year administration of former president Barack Obama.

Saudi leaders felt Obama was reluctant to get involved in the civil war in Syria and other regional conflicts.

Riyadh's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said he expects the Trump administration to be more engaged in the Middle East, and the world in general, while "rebuilding" relationships with allies.

Trump and King Salman "agreed on the importance of rigorously enforcing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran and of addressing Iran's destabilizing regional activities," the White House said.

Trump also spoke by telephone with the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, committing to "further strengthen cooperation on fighting radical Islamic terrorism," the White House said.

It said the pair also discussed establishing safe zones for refugees displaced by conflict in the region, and the crown prince "agreed to support this initiative."

KLM refuses seven passengers following Trump’s Muslim country ban

DutchNews, January 28, 2017

Dutch airline KLM has refused to fly at least seven passengers to the US after president Donald Trump closed the country’s borders to refugees and visa holders from a list of banned Muslim-majority countries. 

All the people who were refused permission to fly had a visa for the US, KLM told broadcaster NOS. Two had tickets to fly from Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. The other five were flying from different destinations and had planned to change planes at Schiphol, NOS said. 

KLM said it had no alternative but to refuse to allow them to fly because they would not be allowed into the US. The airline said it and would pay for them to return to the starting point of their journey. 

Trump on Friday introduced an immediate entry ban for everyone from Iran, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Libya and Yemen to last three months. The ban appears also to apply to people with a green card – a permanent residency permit. 

The KLM spokesman told website Nu.nl there would be more clarity about who could and could not fly in the coming days.

".... The Wild Card of 2016

Remember: No emotion now. You have come from another planet and you’re looking at the end of 2016 – and there is the election. Understand without bias.

So for 2016, let’s do the numerology. You add the numbers and get nine. Nine is completion in simple numerology, and when you see a nine it often means the completion of something. Often it is of a time cycle, an energy or the completion of a paradigm. But it’s very strong.

The nines are stronger than many of the other numerological aspects and you feel them. The president-elect (at this writing) is a strong wild card. He is scheduled to become the 45th president. What a coincidence! Forty-five is a nine. A nine and a nine together are more than significant. They tell a story about what is happening. I will tell you something else. This story is not finished yet and there is more coming. You don’t know what you don’t know, so don’t make up your mind in advance about any outcomes. You’re from another planet, remember? There’s no emotion, no bias, no politics and nothing to judge. Look at it for what it is.

A big stick has just been inserted into what is normal and it’s going to be turned. As the big stick turns, other things will respond that never would have responded otherwise. I wish to tell you, dear one, old soul, relax with upcoming wild cards. They do what they do on purpose so that you will have a better civilization in the future. Sometimes they show you what won’t work, and sometimes they change paradigms that would have never changed otherwise. But what you have now is a profound wild card. That is the message.

It’s so common for you to respond certain ways when you are invested in the process. The knee-jerk reaction is expected or you wouldn’t be a Human. However, for this lesson, you’re from another planet and you’re looking down and you’re seeing it. Pretend.

Isn’t that interesting about a nine and a nine together? It means that truly the end of something is here. Perhaps it’s the end of the old way things were done? Perhaps it’s a shake-up of the system so it can correct itself? Don’t dare make up your mind where it’s going, because it’s not finished yet. However, wait a moment. Did you also realize that 2017 is a “one” year? Not only is the energy one of completion with a double nine, but it moves into “a new beginning” (the definition of a one in numerology).

I have more to tell you about numerology, and also something that will be clearer about this whole situation. I will give this to you in the next channelling.

Can you relax in the face of uncertainty when it’s your own country? Can you relax in the face of not knowing what’s next? When you’re so involved, can you disengage from either side of the fray? That is the test of a Lightworker.

There’s something else coming. Dear ones, this is beautiful. No matter what you think and no matter what your reaction is to this channelling, what is happening is correct for your time and needed for your immediate future. I will speak of this later. The beauty is when you step away and see how grand it is, that Spirit cares enough that it would allow a big stick to occur that would stir your complacency at this time. The real reason? The shift is here.

How do you feel? I want you to relax and smile at what the shift has brought you. For those of you who felt all the “shift talk” was nonsense, this may be your wake-up call. It’s real. Here it comes.

This is the message of the day. I am Kryon, in love with humanity, and for good reason.

And so it is.

“… Human Nature is Changing

There's a new concept afoot, a change in Human nature. We've spoken about this before. How many of you studied European history? And in school, did your mind fill up with all of the dates you had to memorize? Who conquered whom and when? Over and over and over, every single country had their turn conquering another country. Borders moved constantly. As far back as you want to go, that's what Humans did. They separated, gathered, and conquered. But as little as 50 years ago, it all stopped.

We've said this before. Fifty years ago, a seed, an idea, was planted at the end of World War II. "Let's put these European countries together," they said. "Let's even drop the borders and eventually give them one currency." Do this and they'll never war again, they predicted, for countries with common economic sources don't go to war! And that's exactly what's happened. Did it work? It's fairly fresh, but their money is threatening to take over the strength of your money, did you notice? It's worth more than yours. They still struggle to make it work and balance it. But then again, you do the same in the United States, always fine tuning the unity.

South America is considering the same thing right now. The seeds are being planted in Brazil. Within a generation, they would love to see the borders dropped and one currency. Can they do it? Perhaps. Perhaps it will take longer. Why do it? Because they see the European Union with the strongest currency on Earth. We've said this before. Here is a prediction: Perhaps not in your time, but there'll come a day when there are only five currencies in the world, because continents will start understanding that unification creates peace and prosperity. Separation creates chaos. What a concept. …

“.   New Tolerance

Look for a softening of finger pointing and an awakening of new tolerance. There will remain many systems for different cultures, as traditions and history are important to sustaining the integrity of culture. So there are many in the Middle East who would follow the prophet and they will continue, but with an increase of awareness. It will be the increase of awareness of what the prophet really wanted all along - unity and tolerance. The angel in the cave instructed him to "unify the tribes and give them the God of Israel." You're going to start seeing a softening of intolerance and the beginning of a new way of being.

Eventually, this will create an acknowledgement that says, "You may not believe the way we believe, but we honor you and your God. We honor our prophet and we will love you according to his teachings. We don't have to agree in order to love." How would you like that? The earth is not going to turn into one belief system. It never will, for Humans don't do that. There must be variety, and there must be the beauty of cultural differences. But the systems will slowly update themselves with increased awareness of the truth of a new kind of balance. So that's the first thing. Watch for these changes, dear ones. ...."

'Dump Trump': Tens of thousands join global march

Yahoo – AFP, Alice Ritchie, January 21, 2017

London (AFP) - Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of London, Paris and other cities worldwide Saturday in solidarity with women-led marches in the United States, opposed to President Donald Trump the day after his inauguration.

In London, a largely female crowd that also included many men and children packed Trafalgar Square, chanting "dump Trump" and waving banners demanding equal rights.

"Our Rights Are Not For Grabs -- Neither Are We" were among the banners held aloft, along with "We shall overcomb" and "Make bigotry wrong again".

Hannah Bryant, a 34-year-old museum worker, brought her four-year-old daughter -- both of them wearing the bright pink "pussy hats" worn by US demonstrators.

"I've been teaching her about equality and prejudice," she said.

"It's a feeling of solidarity -- not in our name," said Jill Pickering, a 56-year-old American student. "I'm angry -- I didn't vote for Trump."

Organisers said 100,000 attended the London march, although there was no independent verification as police do not give an estimate.

In Paris, at least 7,000 people gathered near the Eiffel Tower, according to police, holding up banners that read "liberty, equality, sorority", in a reference to France's national motto.

"I am here for women and for all minorities because Trump is a threat to all humanity," said a US national Kendra Wergin, who is in her mid-30s.

Andreia Rossi, a 39-year-old Brazilian, told AFP she was taking part "because I am a woman, but also because I want to protest against everything Trump represents."

She added: "It's very dangerous, he has lied to all those who voted for him, and that can happen in France too."

Françoise Seme Wallon, 70, a member of the European Union of Women, said for her Trump is "a nasty guy and he's dangerous for the whole world."

Right-wing populists and nationalist groups in France and elsewhere in Europe have been emboldened by Trump's victory as well as by Britain's vote last year to leave the European Union.

While Trump won 42 percent of the women's vote in the US, many worry that gender rights and other progress on women's health, contraception and abortion could be chipped away.

'Bridges not walls'

In Barcelona, Rome, Amsterdam, Lisbon, and Geneva too, protesters were enraged by Trump's derogatory remarks on women.

"We are here for women and for human rights," one of a large contingent of American expatriate women told SkyTG24 news channel in Rome.

"We must defend democratic values," said Karen Olson, who organised the Swiss march, as motorists driving by honked their horns in support.

"When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty," read a banner held up by a Barcelona protester.

"Make America sane again," said a banner in Amsterdam.

In Budapest, up to 400 people gathered in solidarity with the Washington marchers.

"Bridges not walls," read one of their banners, a reference to Trump's threat to build a wall separating the United States from Mexico to stop migrants from entering the country -- and to have Mexico pay for it.

Hundreds rallied in front of the US embassy in Berlin, chanting pro-migrant slogans in a nation that welcomed nearly a million people fleeing war and poverty in 2015.

"No hate, no fear, immigrants are welcome here," they cried.

Also in Lisbon, a rally was held in front of the US embassy there with hundreds of Americans and Portuguese nationals chanting, "He is not my president!"

"Trump's rise reminds me of what my mother used to tell me about the arrival of Hitler," said Bert Wiesel, 69, a Swiss-American protester.

In Prague, protest organiser Johanna Nejedlova branded Trump's rhetoric "hateful" and said they wanted to express support "for values such as democracy, human rights, ecology and women's rights."

There were also solidarity marches beyond Europe too, with protests in Johannesburg, South Africa, where marchers held up banners reading "Black lives matter" and "Love trumps hate".

Anti-Trump protests also took place in Australia with several thousand marching in Sydney and Melbourne. And in New Zealand, hundreds joined demonstrations in the capital Wellington as well as in Auckland.

Did you also realize that 2017 is a “one” year? Not only is the energy one of completion with a double nine, but it moves into “a new beginning” (the definition of a one in numerology).

I have more to tell you about numerology, and also something that will be clearer about this whole situation. I will give this to you in the next channelling.

Can you relax in the face of uncertainty when it’s your own country? Can you relax in the face of not knowing what’s next? When you’re so involved, can you disengage from either side of the fray? That is the test of a Lightworker.

There’s something else coming. Dear ones, this is beautiful. No matter what you think and no matter what your reaction is to this channelling, what is happening is correct for your time and needed for your immediate future. I will speak of this later. The beauty is when you step away and see how grand it is, that Spirit cares enough that it would allow a big stick to occur that would stir your complacency at this time. The real reason? The shift is here.

How do you feel? I want you to relax and smile at what the shift has brought you. For those of you who felt all the “shift talk” was nonsense, this may be your wake-up call. It’s real. Here it comes.

This is the message of the day. I am Kryon, in love with humanity, and for good reason.

And so it is.

"... Important Things For Now

If you started to examine the Higgs singlet, you would start to see why fractal time works the way it does. I’m going to stop getting scientific and I’m going to make this message more practical. There are those who will say time is in a circle. It is. In fact, time imprints energies on it that then often repeat. You probably have heard the saying, "Time repeats itself." It does. "History repeats itself." It does. And so, therefore, this whole idea of time in a circle or having imprinted energies on the circle is accurate. So as you go around the time circle, which to you is a straight line, you will then come upon what we will call energy markers of the past. Those energy markers may very well have the potential to create the same thing the last one did, repeating within the circle. Here it comes again, here it comes again, here it comes again.

Sociologists, historians and especially fractal time theorists believe you’re overdue for a world war, dear ones. However, you’re not going to have one! You passed that potential 16 years ago. All of the prophecy of the scripture told you that you would have one. Do you see how fractal time actually influenced all that prophecy? They expected this potential to happen. However, did you notice that it did not? Against all odds, it did not happen.

How many years have to go by before humanity will take a look and say, "You know, it didn’t happen"? All that prophecy, all those years, got you frightened and prepared. Much of humanity actually still expects a war. "Here it comes," people still say. If you watch your television, some science programs will say, “Well, it’s coming.” They are still watching the fractal energy. It’s very frightening. Many of your science fiction movies are based on a scenario where it already came! All this because you have the energy of "expectation" of something on the circle of time.

Listen: The fractal of time has a very interesting attribute, and it's what I wanted to tell you because this is so confusing to so many. If you profoundly change something in the circle of time, you rewrite the future. In other words, the fractals that existed before that tended to repeat are voided, and you create new potentials on the circle. You might say you moved into a slightly different dimension where the prophecies of old will not take place. There is absolute truth in that, and physics will show it, and this will be discovered some day. So, why do I tell you this? It takes a big event or very different thinking to change the circle. Although the Higgs Singlet can only observe the past, Human consciousness can change it! Not to get too technical, but there are even those in physics who believe you change the past when you change the future [retro-causality]!

The Wild Card: I presented a full discussion on wild cards the last time I was with you. I listed a number of them. I gave you the rules of wild cards and told you that they are not created by Spirit. They can be inventions, persons who have changed history or ideas. What happens is this: Humans move forward with ideas or higher consciousness, allowing Spirit to then give you the wild card.

For instance, did you notice that some of the most profound inventions came upon this planet all at once, all over the earth? What a coincidence! Centuries without flight, and then the Wright brothers only beat the French by a week or so! You can go on and on with others this way. It just seems that the earth is given the information all at once! That’s not exactly right. We don’t give you anything. Instead, we lift the veil slightly and the Humans that are able to think of these things do! That is what has happened repeatedly. So you create a wild card with your own rules and your own consciousness and your own systems when it's time to change the fractal of time – and you just did one.

We told you that your recent election brought you a wild card. The definition of a wild card is something totally and completely unexpected and out of time. It then changes things from then on. You have a wild card as your president-elect [channelled December 2016]. Now I beg you, wipe away the bias. It’s hard for some! Wipe it away and listen to this for just a moment, because this is the first time and perhaps the last that I’ll ever tell you this: There are those on this planet right now who can sense the fractals in the time circle. They are called pre-cogs. They have precognition from sensing what is coming on the circle of time repeating itself.

Your government knows about them and actually employs them! They are the few who can sense what is already there, because time is in a circle. Remember? Fractal time presents elements of energy that come at you in this circle; therefore, they can be sensed and made into predictions.

The Big Prediction

There is one prediction that stands out and it started to be seen last year or slightly before. The prediction, based on fractals, is that you’re going to have a major, potentially total, complete financial collapse in about February or March 2017.

Many of you have heard this and it’s frightening. The pre-cogs started talking about it, and then there were others who started talking about it. The closer it got, the more it was talked about. Now this also follows some logic, because the ones who study patterns of finance, stocks, investments and national debt see the pattern also. They started yelling, too, "It’s coming! Can’t you see it?" Some analysts are telling you to capture all your assets in another form, right away. Many are saying that banks will fail soon. What I want to tell you is that they were correct. The fractal does, indeed, have that energy!

The Butterfly Effect

Do you know what I’m going to tell you next? A man named Edward Lorenz gave a philosophy: When a butterfly flaps its wings, something major could happen in the future. It's because little things change bigger things and bigger things change even bigger things. He is right, and a wild card is a huge butterfly.

Here is what I want to tell you today. A majority was expecting a certain outcome to your election. Instead, you got a wild card. Let me tell you why: If the expected had happened, the financial systems would have stayed in place exactly the way they were. The one you expected would have taken over from the other and the systems that were bound to fail would have gone right into that very place and exploded into economic dysfunction. There would have been no reason to change anything for the one you expected, because the sense was that it was all working well.

Pretend you’re a visitor from space and you have no invested interest or bias at all in what has happened. You’re looking down in a metaphysical way and you’re saying, "Isn’t it interesting how this wild card is going to change what would have happened in February or March?" Are you understanding what I’m telling you?

Perhaps putting a stick in everything and turning it quickly is what was needed right now? This would be in order to change that specter of complete and total financial failure. I want you to see what’s going to happen, and not to fear it when some seeds of it may still occur – like a hiccup in the system when it gets too elevated. But I’ll tell you that without this wild card, it would have been "same old, same old", right to where the fruition of the problem would be. Then the pre-cogs would have been right. The fractal time potentials would have then proved themselves accurate. But instead, the main energy of the financial horror has been potentially voided because of the wild card. Remember, it was Humans with free choice and a free system that you designed who put the wild card in place.

Moving Forward

“Kryon, what's going to happen next?” Dear ones, it's up to you. What’s the most benevolent outcome? What you say and do is like placing an order to the Universe and the field. What is the order you’re going to place in the next months? Think of it as writing your take on all this and giving it to the "universal waitress". What’s going to come to your table? Aren’t you tired of ordering that which is the lowest expectation? Aren’t you tired of expecting horrible things from other people, then getting them? What are you going to do with this? Physics is on your side, dear ones, and has your back. However, you are in control of what happens next, by what you expect.

Like other wild cards that you received before, the design is that you can continue on and this planet can grow faster because of it. It won't have to be dragged down for years and years and years through a major collapse of the world economy. That’s the message of the day.

Can you feel the entourage yet? Can you feel the smiles and the joy of those who know the potentials of the future you have? You are in control, yet some of you feel so out of control. I want you to consider this message. I want you to watch what happens on the planet and I want you to adjust into a way where you can get up in the morning and place your order. Remember, think "most benevolent outcome" from everything you see. Order things that are joyful and that reflect the passing of the days of the ignorance of the six-year-old. Let that instead be replaced by maturity, wisdom and compassion.

I hope this helps to shed light on how things work in this new energy. There are more wild cards coming and some of them will be inventions. They will be mostly for the health and well-being and peacefulness of humanity on the planet.

I’m closing now. There will be those listening to this that will walk out and say, "That’s ridiculous. I know Human nature." Dear ones, they have just placed their order!

Be peaceful. Relax into yourself and be your own parent. Take the hand of your Higher-Self this day, and when you do, you’ll live longer.

I am Kryon, in love with humanity and for good reason.

And so it is.

Xi calls for world without nuclear weapons

Chinese President Xi Jinping called for a world without nuclear weapons at the UN on Wednesday and urged a multilateral system based on equality among nations large and small.

His speech at the United Nations in Geneva came at the end of a diplomatic tour that included a landmark address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, just days before Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th president of the United States.

Some experts have seen Xi's Swiss tour as a bid to capture the mantle of global leadership at a time when Washington is clouded by uncertainty with an unpredictable political novice about to take charge.

"Nuclear weapons should be completely prohibited and destroyed over time to make the world free of nuclear weapons," Xi said, according to an official translation.

China has been a nuclear power since 1964.

In an address that stretched beyond 45 minutes, Xi also sought to make the case for a global governance system that strives for a level playing field among countries where interventionist tendencies are resisted.

"We should reject dominance by just one or several countries", Xi said, adding that "major powers should respect each other's core interests."

"Big countries should treat smaller countries as equals instead of acting as a hegemon, imposing their will on others," he further said, speaking alongside the new UN secretary general Antonio Guterres.

"Sovereign equality is the most important rule", Xi continued.

He also praised UN organisations governed by the principle of one nation, one vote.

China has reacted harshly against attempts to influence what it considers its internal domestic affairs, from concerns over human rights issues in Tibet to a democracy push in Hong Kong.


Beijing has also used its veto on the UN Security Council to block intervention in some global hotspots, including notably in Syria.

Foil to Trump?

In his disarmament call and plea for sovereign equality Xi offered China as a nation "committed to building a world of lasting peace."

In Davos, Xi backed unity in the face of mounting global challenges such as resistance to globalised trade.

Some analysts saw that as a bid to contrast Trump, whose often bombastic rhetoric has at times defined international relationships in terms of winners and losers.

While he made no mention of the incoming Republican administration, Xi's message on nuclear weapons stood apart from Trump's at times contradictory remarks on American nuclear power.

In a tweet last month, Trump said "the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes".

But this week, the real-estate mogul and former reality TV star Trump struck a different note, saying "nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially".

He also suggested he would be open to a disarmament deal with Russia in exchange for easing sanctions imposed by Washington against Moscow.

German opposition leader calls for security union with Russia, dissolution of NATO

The parliamentary leader of Germany's largest opposition party has urged the dissolution of the NATO alliance. Her remarks come after US president-elect Donald Trump described it as "obsolete."

Deutsche Welle, 17 January 2017

  
German opposition leader Sahra Wagenknecht on Tuesday added her voice to calls to dissolve the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the wake of US President-elect Donald Trump's controversial remarks concerning the military alliance

"NATO must be dissolved and replaced by a collective security system including Russia," Wagenknecht told Germany's "Funke" media group.

Wagenknecht, who leads the opposition Left Party in parliament, added that comments made by the future US president "mercilessly reveal the mistakes and failures of the [German] federal government."

'Very unfair'

In an interview published by German tabloid "Bild," Trump described NATO as an "obsolete" organization.

"I said a long time ago that NATO had problems. Number one it was obsolete, because it was designed many, many years ago," he said.

"We're supposed to protect countries. But a lot of these countries aren't paying what they're supposed to be paying, which I think is very unfair to the United States," Trump added.

Germany's Left Party has previously called for warmer ties with Russia and scrapping the security alliance, measures which appear to be policy concerns for the incoming US administration.

The Left Party is Germany's largest opposition group in parliament, and holds seats in several state legislatures.
