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.

West Java prone to more quakes

Yuli Tri Suwarni, The Jakarta Post, Bandung | Fri, 08/13/2010 9:57 AM

Scientists warned Thursday of rising seismic activity in southern areas of Java, mainly south of West Java, urging residents to remain alert.

A 5.8-magnitude quake struck Thursday morning and was centered 145 kilometers northwest of the West Java town of Sukabumi at a depth of 10 meters below sea level.

There were no reports of casualties and damage but the tremor was felt in Bandung, Garut, Tasikmalaya and even Jakarta, located about 200 kilometers away.

“I wondered why my bed was shaking vigorously,” said North Bandung resident Linda Damajanti Sukmana on Thursday. “Then I realized it’s a quake.”

People living in Sukabumi coastal area rushed out of their houses when the quake hit, Najmudin Aziz, Cipatujah subdistrict head Najmudin Aziz told Antara, adding the quake did not cause any damage or injuries.

Geologist Danny Hilman Natawijaya of the Indonesian Institute of Science (LIPI) urged residents to remain alert, saying there would be continual tremors along the Indo-Australian-Eurasian fault line, which stretches from Andaman Island to Sumatra, the southern part of Java and Maluku.

He said southern Java was included in the “seismic gap”, or quiet path, because based on historical records, no massive quake measuring more than 8 magnitudes had occurred in the area over the past 30 years.

However, experts have begun paying attention to potential earthquakes and tsunamis in South Java after a 6.8-magnitude quake-triggered tsunami struck and killed more than 130 residents along south Java coast, especially in West Java, on July 17, 2006.

”We must stay alert as the southern part of Java is part of the subduction zone, despite no records of quakes measuring more than 8 magnitudes there. The potential of a massive quake is always there,” Danny told The Jakarta Post in Bandung on Thursday.

Bandung BMG geophysics observation staff member, Pepen Supendi, said that after the 2006 tsunami, a massive quake jolted West Java again on Sept. 2, 2009, killing at least 30 people, destroying hundreds of homes and displacing more than 1,000 people.

Six earthquakes, measuring greater than 5 magnitudes occurred again after the 2009 quake, including the 6.3-magnitude quake in June this year, which reportedly destroyed dozens of homes in Salopa, south of Tasikmalaya.

“The process of the shift and meeting of the Indo-Australian-Eurasian plates has apparently occurred in the southern part of Java so the possibility of quakes is imminent.

During the shift, they gather energy, and if rocks are unable to withstand the energy, a quake occurs,” said Pepen.

Danny urged the provincial administration to pay serious attention to disaster mitigation efforts since many residents were not involved in disaster mitigation drills, which were conducted more frequently in other regions such as Sumatra.
