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: Indonesia to preserve environment more seriously

Antara News, Tuesday, June 8, 2010 19:30 WIB

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said Indonesia today and tomorrow would preserve the environment more seriously.

The president made the statement on the occasion of World Environment Day 2010 at the State Palace here on Tuesday.

"Let us from now on be more serious in preserving our environment," said the president, calling on government leaders and the people at large to do so.

To make environmental preservation efforts a success, the head of state called on regional leaders to involve colleges and non-governmental organizations in the endeavors.

He also urged the local governments to be more careful in issuing permits to use forests and land .

"Local governments should be careful in granting permits and do so according to the forests` and land`s function," the president said after presenting Kalpataru and Adipura environmental awards to a number of deserving individuals and institutions.

The awards were given in thee categories, namely "Kalpataru" for individuals and groups; "Adipura" for 140 districts and cities; and "Adiwiyata Mandiri" 2010 for 25 schools.

Flanked by Environment Minister Gusti Muhammad Hatta, the president personally presented the awards in conjunction with this year`s World Environment Day themed "Many Species One Planet, One Future."

Meanwhile, the environment minister said the theme was crucial, because in Indonesia biodiversity was still being overexploited threatening the proper functions and order of the ecosystem.

Biodiversity is an element that forms the environment and functions as the main support for the human survival and welfare, according to him.

The "Kalpataru" awards for the environmental pioneer category was among other things given to Djohan Riduan Hasan from Girimaya, Bukit Intan sub district, Pangkal Pinang, Bangka Belitung Province (Sumatra Island), for his contribution to rehabilitate former-tin mining-site critical land.

Another recipient of "Kalpataru" was Mateus Bere Bau from Kewar village, Lamaknen sub district, Belu District, East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) Province, for his service in planting and caring for trees in arid and rocky areas for the last 35 years.

Mahyidin from Aneuk Laot, Sukakarya sud district, Sabang, Aceh Province, also received a "Kalpataru" Award, for helping rehabilitate mangrove forests.

The two other awardees were Kholifah from Kedung Ringin village, Beji sub district, Pasuruan District, East Java Province, for pioneering in organic agriculture since 1999 by developing bio-pesticides and fertilizers; and Ujang Solikhin, an army soldier, from Kertasari village, Ciamis sub district, West Java, for turning wastes into alternative energy in the form of organic charcoal briquettes to replace kerosene.
