Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Indonesia ferry survivors rescued

The rescue has refocused attention on the search effort

BBC News

Fourteen survivors of a ferry sinking in Indonesia have been rescued from the sea nine days after their boat sank in a storm off Java, officials have said.

They were picked up in a life raft by a passing cargo ship 500km (310 miles) from where their ferry sank.

A fifteenth person died soon after the group was rescued near Bali.

The Senopati Nusantara car ferry was carrying more than 600 people from Borneo to Java when it sank. Poor weather hampered rescue efforts.

The 14 survivors have been taken to Makassar on the island of Sulawesi where port officials said they were very weak and dehydrated.

Strong currents

They survived by drinking rainwater and eating food supplies stored on the life raft, rescue officials said.

The BBC's Lucy Williamson, in Jakarta, says the news of the survivors has refocused attention on the rescue effort.

The search has been extended to the waters around the island of Bali, as stormy weather and currents have carried survivors hundreds of kilometres to the east of where the ferry went down.

About 235 survivors have been rescued so far, found on life rafts, small islands and oil rigs in the Java Sea.

A simultaneous search for a missing Boeing 737 passenger jet has revealed large metal objects on the seabed off the west coast of Sulawesi.

The plane disappeared from radars a week ago carrying 102 people.

Transport officials investigating the ferry disaster have been blaming the rough weather for the sinking.

One said last week she suspected that high waves had entered the ferry's car deck over the door, making the vessel unstable, the Associated Press news agency said.

Very few bodies have so far been found. A navy spokesman said hundreds of bodies were probably trapped on the lower decks of the ferry, AP reported.
