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.

Tapioca plant in Karimun one way of poverty eradication

Karimun, Riau Islands (ANTARA News) - A tapioca factory is believed to be a solution to the problems of the 7,715 poor families in Karimun District.

The statement was made by Parlindungan Lubis, a public leader in Tebing subdistrict on Friday, while adding that this is an easier and more practical way than continue hoping for the benefits of the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) which for almost one year now still remained a project.

Even if the SEZ has become a reality, there is no guarantee that the people of Karimun District would get its benefits, he said.

Therefore Lubis hoped the Karimun district administration should not hope too much from the central government`s promises and instead give more attention to improving the welfare of the people.

"Honestly speaking, how much has the money from the Karimun budget of 2006 and 2007 been spent on preparations for the building of SEZ infrastructure, while practically nothing of the project has been realized until now," he said.

With a view to improving the economy of the people, it is not so difficult to obtain cassava roots. The core of the problem is that the Karimun district administration has been doing nothing in increasing employment opportunities.

"Employment opportunities could be opened up if the Karimun district administration invited investors who may have direct contacts with the people by, among other things, building a tapioca producing plant," he said.

For example, a tapioca producing factory with a production capacity of 50,000 tons per month, may need at least 300,000 cassava seedlings which could be harvest after six months, he added.

Theoretically, he said, if each poor family under this scheme provides the basic material (cassava roots) of the tapioca plant, the program of poverty eradication may be successful, and other relevant industrial enterprises may also emerge and develop.

Even the discarded skin and waste material of cassava roots could be processed into fodder and feed for livestock and fish, Lubis said.

Besides, he added, there would no longer any unused land, as the people would no longer hesitate to sell their cassava roots in large scale.

Some 35-km of land on both sides of the Tanjung Batu road via Sawang to Belia strait, are still unproductive.
