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.

Subsidized fertilizer disappears from Serang

Serang (ANTARA News) - Subsidized urea and SP36 fertilizers disappear in Serang district, Banten Province, and threaten rice product in this year`s planting season, said Sumarna, a 50-year old local farmer here on Saturday. 

"I have searched shops and contacted distributors but I did not find such kinds of subsidized fertilizer," said Sumarna, the farmer from Cimaung village in Cikeusal subdistrict. 

He said that because of fertilizer scarcity in Serang, rice product in this year`s planting season was feared to decrease or to be destroyed by insect. 

According to him, most of the rice fields in Serang were dependent on rain, and therefore they needed non-organic fertilizer. 

Another farmer, Rahmat (45), said planting season this year has arrived following the arrival of rainy season early this month but subsidized fertilizers were difficult to find. 

Therefore, he expressed hope that regional administration officials would immediately take action to overcome the fertilizer scarcity. 

Meanwhile, H Nurnana, a fertilizer seller, admitted that he had yet to get subsidized fertilizer supply from the distributors in Serang. 

"I have asked several distributors for subsidized fertilizers but so far I have not received them," Nurjana said. 

Fertilizer scarcity is not only experienced by farmers in Serang alone but also in other districts. 

It was reported from Pamekasan district in Madura island, East Java, on Wednesday that fertilizer of various kinds also disappeared from markets there ahead of planting season. 

"We ordered the fertilizer from its agents two weeks ago but to date we have not received it," retailer from Proppo subdistrict, Fathorrahman said in Pamekasan on Wednesday. 

He added Proppo, Larangan, Kadur, Galis, Pademawu, and Palengaan subdistricts in Pamekasan were having fertilizer scarcity at present. 

He said the fertilizer scarcity had made the local farmers to become restless because planting season was near. 

Therefore the farmers in Kadur subdistrict had to postpone growing paddy and corn because their fertilizer has been out of stock. 

"If I start to grow paddy and corn now without fertilizer, I`m afraid the crop will fail," said Sadik, a farmer from Kadur subdistrict, Pamekasan. 

Meanwhile, Pameskasan district trade and industry office chief Atok Suharyanto said the fertilizer scarcity there was due to speculators` trick of play because fertilizer allocation to Pamekasan was not reduced.
