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.

Citeureup, Bogor, West Java (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan has rewarded "Indonesia Green Awards 2011" to PT Indocement Tunggal Prakarsa Tbk for its participation in environmental improvement.

"The award is granted on Wednesday by Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan in Bali Room of Hotel Indonesia Kempinski in Jakarta, and received by PT Indocement`s Human Resources Director Kuky Permana," company spokesman Sahat Panggabean said here on Thursday.

He said the Indonesia Green Awards 2011 was by Bisnis&CSR Magazine and supported by the Ministry of Forestry of the Republic of Indonesia and La Tofi School of CSR.

"The `earth inspiration award` is granted to numbers of company and individual that strongly inspired to the public in environmental issues," he said.

According to him, PT Indocement was granted an award for its initiative to use alternative fuels in cement production process and reduce dust emission based on the national standard, as well as planting and cultivating Jatropha Curcas on ex-quarry that associated with the Corporate Social Responsibility Program (CSR).

Panggabean said PT Indocement Tunggal Prakasa Tbk was the first cement sector project for reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Prototype Carbon Fund, which would obtain three million tons of emission reductions from the project.

He added that Indocement consists of two Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects.

The first reduces the quantity of energy-intensive clinker in blended cement and the second increases the use of alternative fuels, such as rice husk, coconut waste, car tires and waste oils in the cement making process.

The Indocement projects produce environmentally friendly, high-quality cement and provide an alternative solution to Indonesia`s waste disposal problems while creating employment opportunities in an alternative fuel supply chain.

He said the total greenhouse gas emission cuts over the ten year crediting period is estimated to be in the range of 10 to 12 million tons.
