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.

Karo people warned of lava floods

Antara News, Thursday, September 2, 2010 21:56 WIB

Medan, N Sumatra (ANTARA News) - The local people who live in the down stream of rivers that run down from the slopes of Mt Sinabung in Tanah Karo district, North Sumatra, are warned of possible lava floods.

"We issue this warning to the locals because of late rain often falls around the slopes of Mount Sinabung, which erupted early last Sunday," Iman K Sinulingga of the Volcanology and Geological Disaster Mitigation Center of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, said here on Thursday.

He said that Mount Sinabung was still in its Level IV alert status so that his side recommended several matters for refugees and the Karo regional government.

Sinulingga said that residents who stayed and had activities within a radius of 6 km from Mt Sinabung`s crater should be evacuated to safer places.

If there is ash rain residents should use face masks and cover their water tanks which they use for drinking water.

"Residents are asked to remain patient in following the instructions of the task forces because Mt Sinabung`s nature of eruption and activities is not recognized. Task forces and local government should continue to coordinate in the field," he said.

In the meantime, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono`s second stage assistance has been handed over by the National Disaster Mitigating Agency (BNPP) deputy head for logistics affairs, Samijan, to the Tanah Karo district head.

In the meantime the second stage assistance was handed over by BNPB deputy for logistics affairs, Samijan, to the Tana Karo district head DD Sinulingga.

The second assistance consisted of 8,500 blankets, 1,000 pieces of mats, 500 pieces of rolling tents, 3,000 cartons of noodles, 2,000 cartons of promina milk and 200 dozens of female underwear.

The assistance also included 500 cartons of napkins, 3,000 packages of medicines, 600 liters of cooking oil, 120 kg of salted fish ad 850 kg of sugar.

Samijan in his address said that the handing over of the assistance constitute the government`s attention to the refugees who were staying in emergency tents.

"We hope this assistance would be used as well as possible for the need of evacuees," Samijan said.
