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.

Petrogres eyes chance to set up organic fertilizer firms outside Java

Surabaya, East Java (ANTARA News) - Fertilizer manufacturer PT Petrokimia Gresik (Petrogres) has been studying a plan to set up organic fertilizer factories in some areas outside Java, a spokesperson has said.

The high demand for organic fertilizer outside Java has encouraged PT Petrogres to have the plan, Petrogres director Arifin Tasrif said here.

"Before realizing the plan we should study some aspects including raw materials for organic fertilizer. Lampung province seems to be a right place to set up the organic fertilizer factory as it has enough raw materials," he said.

Raw materials for organic fertilizer are manure and sugarcane wastes, he said, adding that an organic fertilizer factory needs an investment value of Rp1 billion to produce 10 tons of organic fertilizer per day.

Until now, he said, Petrogres has already set up 20 organic fertilizer firms dubbed Petroganik in 20 districts in East Java.

Arifin said eight of the Petroganic firms have already operated commercially while the 12 others are under an equipment fabrication process.

"We hope we could set up 30 other Petroganic firms in East Java this year as both investors and farmers are really demanding for more organic fertilizer firms and organic fertilizer price is far lower than that of the chemical one," he said.

Organic fertilizer is sold at Rp1,400-Rp1,500 per kg while inorganic one at Rp2,500 per kg.

Meanwhile, in an inauguration of five Petroganik firms in East Java`s district of Magetan, Agriculture Minister Anton Apriyantono said the government planned to make the use of organic fertilizer to the utmost to reduce the dependence on chemical fertilizer.

Anton, however, did not say whether or not the government would subsidize the making of organic fertilizer as it had done for the inorganic fertilizer production.
