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.

`Land with one million cows program` should have tangible result

Antara News, Sunday, March 21, 2010 03:49 WIB

Mataram, (ANTARA News) - The "Land with One Million Cows Program" (BSS) in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) should have a tangible result at the end of this year, an official said.

"Such a program has been calculated in its funds and the number of cow population, and therefore it should have a tangible result at the end of this year," NTB provincial administration` public relations chief M Faozal said here on Saturday.

Seeing that the result of the program was still unclear, Governor Zainul Majdi had to suspend a working contract with around 45 Regional Forces Working Units (SKPD), including West Nusa Tenggara Animal Husbandry Service.

"The working contract with around 45 SKPD will be resumed until after all of them improve their performance at the end of this year on in December 1010," Governor Zainul Majdi said.

According to the governor, the BSS program was expected to be able to increase the population of cows in the province and income of cow breeders.

"The program was launched in December 2008 and ever since the cow population in the province increased significantly," the governor said.

Data from NTB Animal Husbandry Service indicated that the cow population in the province in 2008 increased by 546,114 and then rose to 683,347 in 2009, while in 2010 it is expected to rise by 780,772.

Therefore, the Land of One Million Cow program got a serious attention from the central government to be applied in the other provinces in Indonesia.

West Nusa Tenggara is known to have rice stock as well as livestock in abundance, and thus the province sends not less than 35,000 cows every year to Jakarta and West Java to meet the meat demand of the people.

In addition, the province also shipped at least 9,000 cows per year to Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Maluku, East Nusa Tenggara, Papua, and Sumatra.
