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.

Two earthquakes jolt eastern Indonesian islands, no injuries

Jan 24, 2007, 11:00 GMT

Jakarta - Two moderate earthquakes measuring 5.3 on the Richter scale jolted the eastern Indonesian islands of Maluku on Wednesday, but there were no reports of injuries or damage.

The tremblors struck at 15:40 p.m. (0840 GMT) and 16:34 p.m. (0934 GMT), according to a report on Indonesia's Meteorology and Geophysics agency (BMG) website. Their epicentres were more than 33 kilometres beneath the Maluku Sea, about 109 kilometres northwest of Maluku's Ternate district.

The islands lie some 2,220 kilometres northeast of Jakarta.

'The quakes were aftershocks from the Manado quake earlier this week, although there's no tsunami threat,' local BMG official Subarjo told the Jakarta-based Elshinta radio station.

'There have been at least 430 aftershocks following that quake,' he said.

On Sunday night, a strong quake measuring at 6.5 on the Richter scale shook Manado, the capital of North Sulawesi province, and nearby regions, killing at least two and prompting panicky residents to run out of their homes and from buildings.

Indonesia is located in the Pacific Ocean volcanic belt known as the 'Ring of Fire,' where earthquakes and volcano eruptions are commonplace.

In December 2004, a massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake triggered a tsunami that struck nine Asian and African countries, killing around 177,000 people in Indonesia's Aceh province alone. In July 2005, another quake-triggered tsunami killed more than 600 people along the southern coast of Java.
