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.

The difference a day might make

Irawaty Wardany, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Indonesia's women have stepped up to the plate in the fight against climate change with a group of seven all-female organizations from across the archipelago promising to see 10-million trees planted in a day.

The seven groups that are set to work together to encourage women nationally to plant and care for the trees includes the Indonesian Women Congress (KOWANI), the Association of Military Officers' Wives (Dharma Pertiwi) and the Solidarity Forum for the Wives of Indonesian United Cabinet Officials (SIKIB).

A group spokeswoman said they would aim to plant the 10 million seedlings on December 1.

"The earth is in danger," KOWANI's Linda Agum Gumelar said.

"We need to start a joint action to respond to this problem."

Murniati Widodo AS, chairwoman of SIKIB, said all the seeds would be provided by the Forestry Ministry and forestry agencies free of charge.

She said they would hold a national conference on environmental conservation from November 26 to 28 in Jakarta.

"The three-day conference aims at improving women's outlook (around) the adaptation and mitigation efforts of the effect of the climate change," Murniati said.

"Women have huge (potential).

"Imagine if all women were involved in planting trees and taking care of them."

Erna Witoelar, the UN Special Ambassador for the Millennium Development Goals in the Asia Pacific, said women were among the victims of natural disasters caused by climate change.

"This program will change the paradigm that reforestation is only a matter of planting trees," she said.

She said the 10-million tree planting project was a small part off the government's campaign to plant two billion trees within the next five years.

"But the most important thing is that we know our faults and how to fix them," Erna said.

"We all know that climate change is unavoidable but we can at least reduce its impact."

Erna said it was "high time for women to show their plus points, especially regarding their patience in growing and taking care of their children".

"This aspect of women's patience and (ability to) care needs to be exploited," she said.

The results of the program would be presented before the Climate Change Conference in Bali in December.

Other groups involved include the Association of Civil Servants' Wives (Dharma Wanita Persatuan), the Association of Police Officers' Wives (Bhayangkari), the Family Welfare Movement (PKK) and Women Alliance for Sustainable Development (APPB).
