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.

TEMPO Interactive, Makassar:The South Sulawesi Provincial Government disbursed Rp268,4 billion to revitalize cocao in 2009.

The central government prepared Rp1 trillion for the National Movement on Cacao Plantation Revitalization for nine provinces.

South Sulawesi received Rp305 billion.

Some Rp152 billion of the central government funds were distributed to the province and to the regencies Rp153 billion.

The province have disbursed 97,05 percent of the funds, or around Rp147.5 billion, and 85 percent of the funds for the regions, or around Rp130.05 billion.

The funds were used in stages, which were 4,300 hectares land plant rejuvenation, 20,900 hectares land rehabilitation and 23,700 hectare land intensification.

According to him, activities in northern South Sulawesi produced 23.7 thousand tons of cocoa only from plant intensification.

The production obtained from the revitalized land and from non-revitalized land was about 140 thousand tons, therefore total production in 2009 ranged around 150,000 and160,000 tons.

“South Sulawesi exported 120,000 tons in 2009 at a value of US$313 million or around Rp3 trillion," he said.

The movement consists of 4,200 hectares land rejuvenation, 27,500 hectares land rehabilitation, and 5,550 hectares land intensification.

The revitalization will end in 2011, with a total land target of about 44,100 hectares.

During 2009-2013, the total land that will profit from the revitalization budget will reach 755,000 hectares with production predicted to reach 325,000 tons in the fifth year.

The Plantation Office predicts that the value in 2009 will amount to 4 trillion, in 2010 Rp 4.7 trillion, in 2011 Rp 5.9 trillion, in 2012 Rp 8.7 trillion and in 2013 Rp 11.4 trillion.
