"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."

“ … 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 ..."

Burundi’s veteran rebel resurfaces

Iol News - AFP, August 6 2013.

Burundi's veteran rebel leader Agathon Rwasa resurfaced on Tuesday after three years in the bush, but police stopped him from addressing some thousand supporters who came to welcome him.

“Three years ago, in the wake of the dispute over the elections, I had to leave those close to me in order to save my skin,” Rwasa told reporters at a villa in the capital Bujumbura.

“Today I'm ending my exile to answer the call to come home and lead the party.”

Rwasa, dressed smartly in a navy blue suit and red tie, first appeared at a local community hall where supporters were celebrating his return, an AFP reporter said.

Several UN officials and foreign diplomats also gathered to see his return.

But dozens of police officers blocked Rwasa and turned him away, saying he did not have the necessary authorisation to hold a rally.

“The organisation of a rally is governed by the law. Mr Agathon Rwasa refused to accept that,” said Godefroid Bizimana, second-in-command of Burundi's police, who turned out in person to supervise his men.

That is why this meeting has been banned.”

Police also blocked several roads leading into the capital to prevent hundreds of supporters from outside town joining celebrations, local officials said.

“The regime has - yet again - shown its dictatorial and intolerant nature,” Rwasa's spokesman Aime Magera told journalists.

“We informed the interior minister about this meeting a long time ago and we invited him to attend,” he added.

The 49-year-old ex-rebel leader once headed the National Liberation Forces (FNL), a guerrila force that has since become a political party. - Sapa-AFP
