"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 ..."

BEIRUT: Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati handed in his resignation to President Michel Sleiman Saturday and stressed that his decision was a personal one.

“I did not consult any side before taking the decision to step down from my position: My decision was a personal one,” Mikati, who formed his 30 member Cabinet in June 2011, told reporters at Baabda Palace, where he formally handed his resignation to Sleiman.

For his part, Sleiman expressed gratitude for the government’s work and called on it to assume the role of caretaker cabinet until a new one is formed, a statement from the president’s office said.

Mikati’s decision Friday came shortly after Hezbollah and its March 8 allies foiled attempts during a Cabinet session to create a body to supervise the June 9 parliamentary polls and rejected the premier’s proposal for the extension of the police chief’s term.

At a news conference following his talks with Sleiman, Mikati reiterated his hope that his resignation would pave the way for a solution to end the political deadlock in the country.

He also reiterated his call for the resumption of National Dialogue under the auspices of Sleiman.

“What is important now is to resume National Dialogue and to form a salvation Cabinet at such a critical phase,” the Tripoli lawmaker said.

Asked about the possibility of being renamed prime minster to form the next Cabinet, Mikati said: “It is too early to address such an issue.”

Mikati’s announcement Friday was praised by the opposition March 14 coalition.

After accepting the resignation of the prime minister and appointing him as caretaker, Sleiman calls for the launch of parliamentary consultations for the naming of a new prime minister-designate.
