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 Volcano Agency Says Mount Kelud Eruption Is Imminent

By Wahyudi Soeriaatmadja

Oct. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Indonesia warned that one of its most active volcanoes may erupt at any time, raising the alert for Mount Kelud to its highest level.

An eruption is ``imminent,'' the Vulcanological Survey of Indonesia said in a statement on its Web site.

Officials ordered about 30,000 villagers living on the slopes of the 1,731-meter (5,679-foot) volcano in Kediri, in the eastern part of Java, to evacuate late yesterday, Associated Press reported. Many people refused to leave, AP said.

Mount Kelud last erupted in 1990 and statistics show another eruption is now two years overdue, Surono, a leading volcanologist at the Department of Energy and Mineral Resources, said last month.

Indonesia is located on the western side of the so-called Pacific Rim of Fire, an arc of volcanoes and geologic fault lines surrounding the Pacific Basin. The country has had two of the world's biggest volcanic eruptions in the past 200 years, Mount Tambora in 1815 and Krakatau in the Sunda Straits in 1883.

Scientists analyze tremors, the temperature of water in the crater lake and other data to forecast the likelihood of an eruption.

Magma, gas and vapor pressure caused 306 ``volcanological earthquakes'' yesterday, according to the statement. Water temperature increased to 37.8 degrees Celsius (100 degrees Fahrenheit), from 30.4 degrees Celsius in early August.

A system to curb the flow of lava from Mount Kelud has been in place since 1926. Seven canals would drive the lava into man- made lakes.
