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.

Jakarta will be in for a rainy and windy May: BMG

Adianto P. Simamora, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Jakartans should get ready with umbrellas and raincoats, with May slated to see heavy rain and strong wind in the afternoons, according to the Meteorological and Geophysics Agency (BMG).

The head of BMG's weather forecasting division, Achmad Zakir, said May will be the transition period between the rainy and dry seasons for most of Jakarta.

"The dry season will occur differently in Jakarta and its upstream areas. Jakarta's northern areas are expected to experience the dry period in the middle of May," Achmad told The Jakarta Post.

"The dry season in Jakarta's southern areas such as Central, South, West and East Jakarta; Bogor; Depok and parts of Bekasi will come at the end of May or in June."

He said the transition between the seasons usually comes in September and April.

However, he said there was nothing anomalous about this year's weather.

Greater Jakarta has experienced rain and strong winds in the last two weeks, which have uprooted trees and damaged buildings.

Achmad said the rain was caused by reflected heat off the ground which caused the formation of cumulus nimbus clouds.

"The cumulus nimbus then trigger the local rain. It's a normal phenomena determining the transition period from rainy season to dry period," he said.

The BMG last week issued its official report predicting the dry season across the country.

The report, made by a team including experts from the Agriculture Ministry and the Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), said the dry season may be shorter by between 10 and 20 days in areas such as North Sumatra, Central Java and Yogyakarta.

"But in general, the dry season is arriving as normal," the report said.

The BMG currently operates 12 automatic weather monitoring stations to measure rainfall, temperature and wind direction in Greater Jakarta.

The agency also has meteorology stations in Tanjung Priok, Halim Perdana Kusuma, Cengkareng, Bogor, Cileduk and Central Jakarta to monitor daily climate conditions.

The team also reported that human-induced global warming had led to higher monthly rainfall in Jakarta and several other provinces.

The BMG reported that Jakarta, Banten and West Java provinces experienced a 12 percent rise in monthly rainfall from 310 millimeters in 1900 to 360 millimeters in 2000.
