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.

West Kalimantan ready to export rice to Malaysia

Pontianak, W Kalimantan (ANTARA News) - West Kalimantan province is ready to export rice to Malaysia thanks to its rice production surplus which this year is expected to reach 150,000 tons, an official said.

"West Kalimantan has the chance to export rice," Hazairin, head of West Kalimantan`s Agricultural Service, said here on Friday. 

He said the Malaysian state of Sarawak needed 115,000 tons of rice per year and 95 percent of the volume was currently being imported from Vietnam. 

Hazairin said West Kalimantan shared a land border with Sarawak so that it had the chance to win some of the rice market in the Malaysian state. 

Referring to the ban on rice exports imposed by the central government, Hazairin said there was still an opportunity to export rice through the State Logistics Agency (Bulog). 

"The export can be carried out through the Bulog export program. Exporting rice will economically benefit both farmers and the state," he said. 

He said it would be better for West Kalimantan to export its rice rather than let local people sell it to Sarawak illegally. 

There were a number of border gates believed to have been used so far by local people to sell rice to Sarawak illegally, he said. 

"There are illegal rice exports from West Kalimantan to Malaysia but we don`t know the exact quantity," Hazairin said. 

He said a price disparity of as wide as 100 percent was enticing local people to export their rice illegally to Sarawak. 

West Kalimantan has set itself the target of producing 1.3 million tons of dry unhulled rice following the Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMG)`s prediction sometime ago that rainfall would remain normal until next August. 

In 2005, West Kalimantan`s rice surplus was recorded at 13,913 tons, in 2006 at 47,216 tons and at 104,194 tons in 2007. Provisional data showed that the province`s rice surplus until mid 2008 reached 164,279 tons. It is expected the rice surplus this year would reach 200,000 tons.
