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.

Indonesian women to plant 10 million trees to help overcome climate change

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Seven woman organizations will plant an estimated 10 million trees throughout Indonesia starting on December 1, 2007, to help deal with climate change.

The planting of 10 million trees was also expected to be put in the book of records, Dewi Motik, chairman of the tree planting organizing committee, told the press at the Presidential office here on Tuesday after meeting President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

"There will be 10 million trees, and the event will be the first ever," Dewi Motik said.

President Yudhoyono on November 28, 2007 was expected to officially launch the tree planting activities which would be conducted simultaneously throughout Indonesia starting on December 1, 2007, at 8.00 am Western Indonesian Time (WIB), or 9.00 am Central Indonesian Time (WITA), or 10.00 am Eastern Indonesian Time (WIT), she said.

Most of the trees to be planted would be fruit-bearing trees to give benefits to local people living surrounding the areas where the trees would be planted, the businesswoman said.

The seven organizations to get involved in the tree planting activities would be the Solidarity of the United Indonesian Cabinet Ministers` Wives (Sikib), Kowani, Dharma Pertiwi, Dharma Wanita Persatuan, the Woman Alliance for Sustainable Development, The Family Welfare Movement (PKK), Bhayangkari and the organizing committee of the Mothers` Day 2007.

Meanwhile, First Lady Mrs. Ani Yudhoyono said that tree planting was a hobby of women.

"Women are fond of planting, none of them cut trees," she said.

In connection with the event, a national conference of Indonesian women to anticipate effects of climate change and global warming, will be organized in Jakarta, from November 26 to 28, 2007.

Erna Witoelar of the conference`s organizing committee said that around 700 women from all over Indonesia would take part in the conference which will discuss efforts to solve the problem of climate change.

The former minister hoped that the 10 million tree planting activities could become a start up of larger scale reforestation programs to rehabilitate the country`s forests.

"Indonesia needs to plant around two billion trees in the next five years. So, 10 million trees that we will plant are a very small number. We hope to encourage the people to do similar activities," Erna Witoelas said.
