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.

Another landslide buries houses in Cianjur

Antara News, Sunday, March 21, 2010 00:55 WIB

Cianjur, W Java (ANTARA News)- A landslide hit Cimangu hamlet in Padajaya village, Cikalongkulon sub-district, West Java district of Cianjur on Saturday, burying four houses.

Tens of families rescued themselves to safe places, such as schools and mosques, some local residents told ANTARA.

The landslide, which also threatened 52 other houses in the village, occurred following a few hours of heavy rainfall on Friday.

The prolonged torrential rainfall had made the village`s cliff soil unstable. As a result, the landslide occurred on Saturday, destroying four houses, the local residents said.

Despite the absence of reported fatalities, lots of families were afraid of returning home.

Instead, they sheltered at school buildings and mosques or their relatives` houses. "We flee because we are so scared," said Imam, a 30-year-old resident.

The heavy rain still showered the Padajaya village area on Saturday so that the displaced families, whose houses were vulnerable to unpredictable landslides, kept staying at the temporary shelters.

For security reason, the village`s schools were also temporarily closed. Those fleeing their houses had lack of food stock and clothes so that they appealed for the government`s and public help.

"We hope the government will soon help us. We really need food and clothes," said Icih, a refugee.

This Saturday`s landslide has reminded the Cianjur district`s people of the March 11`s deadly landslide.

At that time, the landslide that hit Ciawitali hamlet, Sukamekar village, Sukanagara sub-district, Cianjur district, destroyed five houses and killed 10 people.A survivor, Obih, lost his wife and his ten-year-old daughter.

Found alive under the mud of the landslide a day after the disaster happened, the 27-year-old Obih still thought that his daughter, Listi, was still watching TV inside his destroyed house.

Obih did not only lose his wife and daughter but also his two other family members. They were identified as Jujun, 55, Acih, 45, Pipit, 25, and Listi, 10.

Over the past few days, heavy rain kept showering various parts of West Java Province, including Bogor and Bandung, causing floods in some areas.
