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.

PT PEN to absorb 1.2 million workers

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - If PT Pangan Energi Nusantara (PT PEN) the establishment of which has been proposed by the state enterprises ministry could operate as expected, at least 1.2 million people could be employed in farms and 41,000 others in other sectors in the 2007-2010 period.

"At least such a big number of workers that could be employed will lower the unemployment rate in the country," Hadi Mustofa, a media staff of the state enterprises ministry, said in a phone interview here on Tuesday.

In addition, through PT PEN the welfare of the farmers can be improved besides having an opportunity to have a share in the company of farmers-owned enterprises (BUMP) as long as they are members of BUMP which is also a partner and shareholder of PT PEN.

PT PEN will make Indonesia self-sufficient in rice and export its rice to other countries.

Being self-sufficient in rice and improve the welfare of the farmers whose fate remained unchanged in the more than 62 years of the country`s independence, the state entreprises ministry had the idea to synergize nine state owned companies which will become stakeholders of the future PT PEN.

Expected to be set up in the second quarter of this year, BUMP will act as motivator, State Entreprises Minister Sugiarto said in a visit to the country`s biggest rice mill in Jatisari village, Cikampek district, West Java, last week.

The nine state companies which will establish a consortium are the national logistics agency (Bulog), fertilizer-producing industries PT. Pusri, PT. Pupuk Kaltim, PT Petrokimia, and PT. Pupuk Kujang, irrigation companies PT. Jasa Tirta I and II, seed suppliers PT. Sang Hyang Sri and PT. Pertani.

PT PEN is to be set up to boost the productivity of the farmers, rice production and improve the farmers` buying power, with a view to conducting research, training, and purchase of the farmers` rice.

BUMP which happens to be a partner and shareholder of PT. PEN will provide advice to the farmers on funding, seeds, fertilizers and planting technigues as well as shareding in BUMP.

Following the establishment of the BUMP, a the result of a study by of the state enterprises ministry said that at least Rp48,48 trillion would be needed to establish 100 BUMPs throughout Indonesia until 2010.

As a beginning, at least 10 BUMPs will have to be established.

If the plan has been realized, Indonesia will not only become self-sufficient in rice, but will also produce sufficient rice in the future.
