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.

Govt to continue protecting oil palm development

Antara News, Sunday, October 3, 2010 14:19 WIB | Economic & Business

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The government will continue to protect sustainable oil palm plantations and crude palm oil (CPO) industry and support steps to increase exports and to develop various CPO down stream industrial programs, a vice minister said.

In a press statement made available to ANTARA here on Sunday, Vice Trade Minister Mahendra Siregar said that the government would continue to protect the sustainability of oil palm plantations and COP industry, including its down stream industry.

He said that the government would also keep watching the obedience of palm oil companies in following regulations in Indonesia.

Mahendra said that the government would take more position to protect palm oil industry (so that it would develop in a sustainable way) rather than to react to the attacks by international non-governmental organization (NGO) against a number of CPO companies in Indonesia.

In line with that, the government through Trade Minister Mari Elka Pangestu appreciated last weekend 12 cooking oil producers which had taken part in a cheap cooking oil program sold in bulk, the "Minyakita" program.

The government has introduced the `Minyakita` program in an effort to provide cheap cooking oil for financially weak people, by inviting national cooking oil producers to take part. The "Minyakita" program was launched on January 28, 2009.

Minyakita was also launched as part of the efforts to keep the hygiene of cooking oil sold in bulk so that it would be safe for consumption. It is also intended to help keep price stability and encourage the development of packaging industry at home.

In the meantime, executive director of Sinas Mas, G Sulistiyanto said that as one of the recipient firms of the Minyakita awards, Sinar Mas had until 2009 channeled 27.1 million liters of cheap cooking oil in various cities as part of the implementation of its corporate social responsibility (CSR).
