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.

Expert pessimistic rescuers to locate missing plane

JAKARTA (Antara): Multi-media expert Roy Surya expressed his pessimism that search and rescue team would be able to find the location of an ill-fated plane, which has gone missing since Monday evening.

The plane went missing on its way from East Java provincial capital of Surabaya to North Sulawesi provincial capital of Manado.

He said the signals of emergency locator transmitters (ELTs), which could guide rescuers to locate the plane wreckage would have disappeared at 3 p.m. Wednesday.

He added lifetime of ELT battery is only 48 hours.

"If ELT signal disappeared, the searching of the wreckage will be more difficult because it only depends only on manual-visual method," Roy was quoted by Antara news agency as saying Wednesday.

According to Roy, there are two ELTs -- portable and fixed -- in every plane, which are placed in cockpit and in the tail of the plane.

Meanwhile, rescuers expanded their search for a missing jetliner to the sea Wednesday, one day after senior Indonesian officials erroneously said the Boeing 737's charred wreckage had been found along with a dozen survivors.

Rescue teams spent more than 10 hours Tuesday hiking through slippery forest paths in a mountainous region of Sulawesi's western coast but found nothing, prompting authorities to expand their search Wednesday to include the sea, Bambang Karnoyudho,the head of the National Search and Rescue Agency, told The Associated Press.

Three navy ships set sail soon after sunrise in the Makkasar Strait and five Air Force planes took to the skies, he said, searching for signs of wreckage in the water and in a large section of south and western Sulawesi.

On Tuesday, top Indonesian aviation, military and police officials - and the airline itself - said the plane had been found in a remote part of Sulawesi. They said that 90 people on board had perished, but that the remaining 12 may have survived.

Descriptions were vivid, with officials saying corpses and debris from the plane were scattered over a 300-meter (327-yard) area of forest and jagged cliffs - highlighting the often unreliable and chaotic nature of disaster relief efforts in theworld's largest archipelagic nation.

But later in the day, they said they had been wrong and no wreckage had been found.
