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.

RI`s climate change policies rated among world`s 15 best

Nusa Dua, Bali (ANTARA News) - Indonesia`s climate-change policies on national scale are rated among the 15 best among the world`s 56 biggest carbon emitters in the Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI), a foreign non-governmental organization (NGO) said.

For its local climate-change policies, Indonesia is ranked one of the six best among 56 countries studied, while for its internnational policies, it is among the 22 best, said Jan Burck of Germanwatch here Friday.

He said the ratings Indonesia had obtained did not necessarily mean that Indonesia`s national and international policies were already very good. "These scores are inidicators that Indonesia`s policies are already better than some other countries` policies but it must still continue to improve its policies in the future," Burck said.

To determine the indice of the 56 countries which produce 90 percent of the world`s volume of carbon emissions, Germanwatch had received reports from NGO-affiliated experts from all over the world.

For information on Indonesia, Germanwatch had relied on the results of studies by two local NGOs the names of which Burck refused to disclose.

"Every year, German watch asks the NGOs for studies and assessments and uses the telephone to communicate with them on things needing clarification," he said.

Burcks said Indonesia was now among the 15 best scorers in the relative CCPI.

"The ranking can rise or drop depending on whether or not other countries have done something better than Indonesia," he said.

Another determinant factor was the fact that Indonesia`s emission potentials are not as big as the developed countries. In addition, the constant improvement in Indonesia`s policies led it to ascend 28 grades above its 43rd place last year. Its CCPI in 2006 was in 36th place.

In 2007, Indonesia`s CCPI score was 57.6 making it one of the developing countries considered to have begun to tackle the climate change phenomenon "seriously."
