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.

Solo, Central Java (ANTARA News) - The government has temporarily stopped allowing foreign investors to develop new oil palm plantations so as to give opportunities to local businessmen, Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan said.

"There is indeed a policy to reduce the number of foreign investors in the oil palm plantation sector to give more opportunities to local businesses," he said here on Monday at a business gathering on developing people`s potentials and opportunities in economic development efforts held during the meeting of the national council on economy and entrepreneurship of the executive board of Muhammadiyah Islamic organization.

The minister said there are now two million hectares of oil palm plantations which are held by foreign investors such as those from Malaysia and others.

In view of the policy he called on national businessmen including those from Muhammadiyah who wish to participate in the business to take the opportunity, adding that there was still plenty of land for the purpose.

He said there were now around 45 million hectares of critical forest land in the country and 30 million hectares of them may be developed into oil palm, rubber or sugar cane plantations.

He said "concession holders who do not develop their land and ignore it would have their permits revoked."

With regard to reforesting the land he said his ministry continued conducting its reforestation program.

In 2010 he said the ministry had developed 600,000 hectares of people-based forestation projects and this year 700,000 hectares in various parts in the country.

This program is mostly implemented in Java island in cooperation with villagers, he said.

He said his office also provides Rp50 million for developing nurseries for each group involved in the program.

The forestry ministry has so far provided Rp2.5 trillion to help maintain the people-based forests and Rp3 trillion to help develop people-based forests, he said.
