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.

104 Tourism Villages in Indonesia by 2010

JAKARTA, - The Minister of Culture and Tourism, Jero Wacik aims at developing 104 tourism villages by 2010. "The tourism village development program has been in progress for two years, and last year 10 villages have been set as the pilot project" he said, in Jakarta, Wednesday.

The tourism village program is considered as an effective way to increase the people's welfare by developing the tourism character of the village. The program is funded by PNPM Mandiri, a government funding program from small-scale businesses, and arranged by the Coordinating Minister for People's Welfare.

"Last year, for instance, we developed a piloting project on a village in Yogyakarta. Stores to support the tourism sector were built in the village."

The tourism village project is included in the Department of Culture and Tourism's 100-day program, thus it's a promise of performance to the president. The ministry has received suggestions of various villages with the potential for tourism.

The Department of Culture and Tourism has screened the suggestions and set 104 villages as the places that will be developed with the PNPM Mandiri. Aside from that, the ministry will also work hand-in-hand with the Coordinating Minister for People's Welfare and the relevant Regency or Municipality government to achieve the target.

Tourism villages are very potential to be developed, considering that for the last few years agrotourism and ecotourism have been great interests for tourists. Wacik hopes that with the tourism villages the target for international and national tourists will be achieved. This year his ministry expects 6.4 million international tourists and 227 million domestic ones until the end of 2010. (MBK/C17-09)
