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.

Chinese fruit has replaced US, A`lian products in RI market


Jakarta, (ANTARA News) - Fruit imported from China has over the past few years taken over the dominant position of US and Australian fruit in the Indonesian market, a horticulure researcher said. 

Such fruits as apples, oranges or pears in the Indonesian market in the past always came from the US or Australia but over the past few years they have been replaced by products from China, Roesdhy Poerwanto, chairman of Tropical Fruit Studies, said in Bogor on Thursday. 

"Fruit from China is now not only seen in modern markets but also at stalls of roadside vendors," Poerwanto said at a meeting of agriculture public relations officers organized by the agriculture ministry's directorate general of horticulture. 

Fruit imported from the US and Australia was now only seen in upper-class modern markets, he said. 

Chinese fruit was allowed to enter the Indonesian market on a massive scale based on the ASEAN +3 charter on trade. Under one of the charter's articles, China would scrap its import tax on palm oil from Indonesia and , in return, Indonesia would open its market to Chinese fruit and impose zero percent tax on the imports. 

Asked about the volume of Chinese fruit that had already entered Indonesia, Poerwanto said he did not know the exact figure but the overall volume of imported fruit was still less than five percent of national fruit production. 

Based on data from the agriculture ministry , production of Indonesian fruit in 2006 was 16.2 million tons while the volume of its fruit exports was about 15.000 tons a year. 

Asked about the steps that could be taken to prevent the domestic market from being flooded by Chinese fruit, he said in the era of globalization, it was impossible to ban any foreign commodity to enter the country's market. 

However, he added, his ministry had prepared a concept to prevent the fruit flooding issue by referring it to consumer protection. 

"We will ensure that products entering the country are safe to consume," he said.
