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.

Mining companies asked to prioritize conservation

Antara News, Tuesday, May 4, 2010 01:50 WIB

Ambon (ANTARA News) - Maluku deputy governor Said Assagaff had asked the mining companies operating in the province to prioritize environmental conservation during explorations and exploitations of minerals.

"Conservation is a precondition for companies building the mining and energy sector prioritizing integration, conservation, and biodiversity," he said when opening a Maluku mining and energy exhibition in Ambon on Monday.

He also said that the mining and energy sector is a leading resource of Maluku province, as its mineral resources were very big and had yet to be adequately exploited and processed for the welfare of the local population.

According to official data, the coal mines in Maluku are located in Seram island, covering Tehoru, Elpaputi, Banggoi and Wahai, and the limestone deposits are found in South Buru and West Seram, natural oil in 10 sediments in East Seram, and the renewable hydro and geothermal energy resources are adequate for building hydropower plants (PLTAs) in Seram island to generate 217.4 megawatts (MW).

He said business prospects for national or regional private companies recommendations are for C-category minerals for industries and for oil, gas and coal are expected to be used under cooperation with foreign investors to serve the welfare of the local population.

In addition, the Maluku provincial administration is also seriously considering the environmental impact analysis (AMDAL) and the social obligations of investors to the people living near the location of explorations, he said.

He also said that the Mining and Energy Expo 2010 will demonstrate the potentials of the natural resources in the thousand islands.

"The expo will also inform the people of the natural resoources of Maluku, and provides a means for the selection of potential foreign and domestic investors. The expo will also invite investors to inspect and consider the mining and energy investment potentials in Maluku," he said.

The Maluku Ming and Energy Expo 2010 also held on the occasion of Sail Banda 2010 with a number of mining companies taking part like PT Batu Tua Kharisma Permai/PT Batu Tua Tembaga Raya, PT Maluku Global Masindo, PT Manusela Prima Mining, PT Belirang Kalisari, PT Gemala Borneo Utama, PT Masindo Putera Energy and PT Satria Fajar Intim.
