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.

Paper giant to withdraw from Indonesia rainforest destruction 2009-11-13 20:33:28

JAKARTA, Nov. 13 (Xinhua) -- Finnish global paper giant UPM-Kymmene planned to stop purchasing pulp from Asia Pacific Resources International Holding Limited (APRIL), which has involved in rainforest destruction in Riau province of Indonesia, Green peace said here Friday.

The decision comes following a move by dozens of Green peace activists from around the world who chained themselves to escavators in a logged peat land forest the province, demanding the United States to take more actions to end deforestation. The activists are now being detained by the police.

Greenpeace campaigner for Southeast Asia Bustar Maitar said that UPM, which supplies products like photocopy paper to global markets including the United States, China, Europe and Australia, admitted that APRIL's pulp "comes from a very delicate environment."

"It is reported that the firm would begin to cancel its contract with APRIL," Maitar told Xinhua over phone.

"The plan indicated a very positive move by UPM to help protect Indonesia's rainforests and carbon rich peatlands, the destruction of which leads to climate change, mass species extinction and causing poverty in forest dependent communities," he added.

"If international companies start distancing themselves from this environmental disaster, the call to end global deforestation here and around the globe will only get louder and louder."

Greenpeace estimates the contract to be equal to over 4 percent of APRIL's total pulp production, worth over 55 million U.S. dollars annually.

The campaigner said that APRIL had involved in forest destruction as the firm still had not licencing completely and operating at the peatland area in which its depth was more than 3 meters.

Besides, the firm had started operation before completing assessment of the location of the highly conservative forest.

"This is illegal under Indonesian law," said Maitar.
