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.

Bird Flu: National Disaster

Thursday, 01 February, 2007 | 15:25 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta: The government will soon classify the bird flu epidemic as a national disaster.

“The President has already given an indication that this is a national disaster, one that we must handle comprehensively,” said Paskah Suzetta, State Minister for National Development Planning and concurrently Head of the National Development Planning Agency (Bapenas), at the Finance Department building, Jakarta, yesterday (31/1).

Paskah explained that bird flu is to be classifies as a national disaster because it is a contagious disease that easily spreads to many areas and there have already been too many victims.

With this classification, the handling of the situation by the central government, regional governments and members of the public will be more integrated.

“So management of the situation will no longer be on an ad hoc basis anymore.”

Before bird flu epidemic is officially classified as a national disaster, Paskah said that management was regional governments’ responsibility so regulations are various.

In the future, the central government’s duty is to help regional governments.

Removal of animal husbandry and elimination of poultry will be still regional governments’ responsibilities.

Via the Health Department, the central government will provide direction and medical facilities.

Soetedjo Yuwono, Secretary to the Coordinating Minister for the People’s Welfare, confirmed that the President will issue a special instruction on bird flu management.

According to him, classifying the status of bird flu as a national disaster in fact must be studied thoroughly in order to avoid any overreacting by the public.

“Just wait for a day or two, it may be issued,” he said.

Up until January 29, this year, according to the Health Department, in Indonesia the total number of people suffering from bird flu has been 82, of whom 64 of them died.

There have been deaths in Jakarta (18), Banten (10), West Java (21), Central Java (5), East Java (3), North Sumatra (6) and South Sulawesi (1).

Paskah explained that funds for bird flu management were from the State Budget allocation for disasters.

“The actual amount is still being calculated,” said this Golkar Party politician.

For certain, the amount of funds will be higher than at present.
