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.

"According to observers, Indonesia will need 165 years to become green again if the treatment is just normal. But with the whole community taking part in greening activity, God willing, it will only take about 30 years," he said when inaugurating a nursery school at SMP Negeri I Mojotengah, Wonosobo district, Central Java province.

Also present at the function were Wonosobo District Chief Abdul Kholiq Arif and the Chief of the Diponegoro Military Command, Major General Mulhim Asyrof.

The minister invited all members of the community to develop a sense of love for the environment which meant not allowing land to go to waste.

"God gave the Indonesian people land that is so fertile, there is year-round sunshine hence do not let land go to miserable waste. If let the land go to waste God will be angry, floods will occur in the rainy season and drought in the dry season," the minister said.

He said every inch of fallow land must be planted with trees or vegetables depending on the conditions of the land.

Meanwhile, Wonosobo District Chief Kholiq Arif said Wonosobo district was a water catchment area buffering approximately 13 districts/cities in Central Java, namely Semarang, Kendal, Batang, Pekalongan, Wonosobo, Banjarnegara, Purbalingga, Banyumas, Cilacap, Temanggung, Kebumen, and Purworejo.

"If the water availability in Wonosobo is good then the same condition will apply in the other regions but if Wonosobo is damaged floods will occur and water supply in some districts/cities will be threatened," Kholiq Arif said.

He said most people still lacked a proper understanding of the importance of environmental sustainability . This was characterized by the function transfer of forests which are not well-patterned, as well as the agricultural patterns that are not in favor of nature conservation. As a result, a various kinds of environmental damage occur such as critical land, habitat loss and a decrease in water discharge.

Kholiq Arif said the school nursery group programs (KBS) or the go green scouting movement and the army-environmental units are aligned with one of the pillars in saving the environment of Dieng (Central Java) areas.
