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.

Mount Anak Krakatau eruptions attract foreign tourists

Serang, Banten (ANTARA News) - Mt Anak Krakatau, the volcano in the Sunda Strait which has been erupting with small explosions during the past few weeks, has attracted a number of Australian and European visitors, a tourist guide said.

"Some 10 to 15 Australian and European tourists come here every day to observe the eruptions of Mount Anak Krakatau," Iman Faisal (35), a tourist guide at Carita beach resort in Pandeglang, Banten, said here Saturday.

He said many of the foreign tourists take pictures of the eruptions as the happening was something of great interest in their respective countries.

"This is because Anak Krakatau is possibly the only volcano in the world that rises from the sea," he said adding that Anak Krakatau had become a legend as its eruption in 1883 killed 36,000 people.

Mount Anak Krakatau has been erupting over the past few weeks.

Officials at the Anak Krakatau Monitong Post in Pasauran village, Cinangka sub district, Serang district, said the volcano`s activity was on Friday marked by 182 eruptions coupled with 11 volcanic quakes, eight deep volcanic tremors, 54 shallow volcanic shocks, 44 tremors, and it also spewed smoke 29 times.

But none of the phenomena posed a direct threat to human life. There were even 2-minute tectonic shocks but also not dangerous.

Budiman, of the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center in Bandung, West Java, said the number of eruptions, volcanic shocks and tremors throughout Friday had declined compared to Thursday when there were 195 eruptions followed by 7 deep volcanic tremors, 49 shallow volcanic shocks and 18 tremors.

All this meant that Anak Krakatau`s activity was still fluctuating each day. There were no major eruptions and volcanic shocks such as had happened in 1883.

On Saturday, Anak Krakatau was still spewing molten rocks, hot clouds, and toxic gas, and had remained at the third level of alertness, Budiman said.

He therefore urged visitors and fishermen to stay away from the foot of Anak Krakatau.
