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, Japan to launch reforestation project in East Java`s National Park

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia and Japan (Sumitomo Forestry Co.Ltd) cooperate to do reforestation in Bromo Tengger National Park, East Java, Indonesia, through Afforestation and Reforestation of Clean Development Mechanism (A/R CDM), an official stated here Tuesday in a press release. 

The cooperation had been agreed in the form of MoU which stated that Sumitomo would provide the project`s funding while Indonesia, throuh its Forestry ministry, would provide the project`s areal and funding the project through In Kind finance. 

Responding to the MoU, the project will be launched at november 12, 2008, through symbolic planting activity. The director and senior Managing Executive Officer from Sumitomo Foretry Co.Ltd, Hideki Nose, along with Indonesia`s minister of forestry MS Ka`ban, and several local authorities near the Bromo Tengger national park is scheduled to attend the launching. 

The A/R CDM reforestation project in the Bromo Tengger national park is conducted as an implementation of the ministry of forestry`s top priority policy which is rehabilitation and conservation of natural resources. 

Moreover, the joint project is also considered as concrete action in implementing the basic principle of World`s Climate Change Convention which says Common but Differentiated Responsibilities. 

Japan as the developed country has prime responsibility to overcome the global warming and world`s climate change, while Indonesia as growing country must assist the developed countries in dealing with such international problems. 

The project is expected to give benefit to both countries. Japan`s government will gain international acknowledgement for their contribution in solving global warming and climate change. Meanwhile, Indonesia will have its forest back to its function after having a degradation as life`s buffer and natural resources for people`s welfare. 

Furthermore, the international world will also mark Indonesia`s contribution in overcoming global warming and climate change. 

Estimated to end in the year of 2012, the project will reach its goal maximally if there are synergic cooperation between Bromo Tengger Semeru national park`s Reserach and Development Board, local government, entrepreneurs, and local people in the project`s implementation and its result.
