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.

President launches infrastructure projects

Erwida Maulia, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Tue, 01/19/2010 9:30 AM

President Susilo Bambang Yu-dhoyono on Monday began a work visit to East Java, launching infrastructure projects and a tree-planting campaign.

Yudhoyono arrived at Iswahyudi Air Base in the East Java town of Madiun on Monday morning, after which he and his entourage headed to Widas Reservoir, where he assisted with the sowed 150,000 nila fish seeds and planted 3,500 trembesi trees nearby.

The tree planting is part of the local administration’s plan to plant up to 3.5 million trees around the reservoir.

The President also used the opportunity to hold a dialogue with the local community and to donate 30 tractors, rice seeds, tree seedlings and more than 100 tons of fertilizer to local farmers.

First Lady Ani Yudhoyono, who is among the presidential entourage on the tour, donated 5 tons of baby food.

Also accompanying the President were Coordinating Economic Minister Hatta Rajasa, Coordinating Public Welfare Minister Agung Laksono, Coordinating Political, Legal and Security Affairs Minister Djoko Suyanto, and Yudhoyono’s youngest son, Edhi Baskoro Yudhoyono.

He then headed to Kertonegoro bus terminal in Ngawi where he launched a number of infrastructure projects in the province.

Among these are the planned construction of the 10.4-km Ngawi Ring Road, low-cost apartment towers in Jember and Probolinggo, and a drinking water procurement facility for some East Java areas.

Yudhoyono also witnessed the signing of an MoU between the East Java provincial administration and Brawijaya Military Command, for the construction of 10,000 housing units in 2010.

On the same day, East Java administration officiated its partnership with the Navy, to reconstruct housing for the fishing community in Sumenep, Madura islands, with the Air Force to sow tree seedlings from the air, and the National Police involved in a program to tackle the distribution of drugs.

“Both the central and regional governments will continue carrying out development programs to improve social welfare,” Yudhoyono said as quoted by Antara.

He also asked the public to help maintain public facilities.

“Development is expensive. So please help preserve public facilities and don’t let them get damaged easily,” he said.

Yudhoyono asked regional administrations to allocate more money from their own budgets to local development projects, instead of relying heavily on the central government.

Following the tree-planting activities in Madiun, Yudhoyono warned residents of the important role village heads played in carrying out development programs.

“Village chiefs are grassroots leaders, playing important roles in development. By supporting village heads, residents will also support their subdistrict heads, regents, governors and the President — allowing government programs to run smoothly,” he said.

The President also pledged to promote pro-people development programs and hoped the public would fully support the economic development program to improve their own social welfare.

Farmers showed their appreciation to the President for his visit to their village.

“I am happy with the President’s visit to Saradan village. This visit will encourage us to work harder,” said Sanimin representing Saradan residents.

The President was also scheduled to attend on Tuesday the opening ceremony of the 6th National Work Meeting of the Indonesian Regency Administrations’ Association (Apkasi) in Madiun, before returning to Jakarta the same day.
