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.

Sarundajang wants to become green governor of N. Sulawesi

Jongker Rumteh, The Jakarta Post, Manado

Few governors in Indonesia would turn down mining investment commitments valued at billions of rupiah, but North Sulawesi Sinyo Harry Sarundajang did.

Sarundajang says his decision Monday not to approve a controversial gold mining proposal by PT Meares Soputan Mining (MSM) in North Minahasa regency and Bitung is related to his commitment to being a "green" governor.

In addition, he does not want to undermine his own campaign to host the 2009 World Ocean Summit in Manado.

"In a recent hearing with members of the House of Representatives, I was condemned for turning down badly needed investments ... however, I prefer to be a green governor rather than allowing the destruction of our environment," Sarundajang said in a press conference.

The governor said that when he was still the mayor of Bitung several years ago, the issue of PT MSM managing a gold mine had come up, so he was familiar with the waste management problems involved.

It is up to the central government to decide whether to allow PT MSM to dump tailings, or mining waste, into the sea, Sarundajang said, but the North Sumatra provincial administration controlled whether they could be disposed of on the ground.

"PT MSM plans to dump tailings on the ground; I rejected the plan. In order to strengthen my refusal, I asked the Environment Ministry to perform an environmental audit," he said.

"Seventy-five days after the audit, the governor is supposed to state his position, but before the deadline I sent a letter to the minister informing him of my refusal to allow the operation of the company in our region," Sarundajang said.

His first reason, he said, was that he did not have the technology, experts and instruments to accurately monitor the environmental impact of the tailings disposal.

The second reason was that the proposed mine was located near the Lembeh Strait, the Bunaken National Park and the Tangkoko Nature Conservation Center.

"The mine is located close to various tourism objects, a fishing area and a nature conservation center and if I approve the investment plan, what about the future of those activities?" he said.

"That is all the background to my refusal of the investment plan. I don't have the stomach to watch the destruction of nature in our area. Moreover in 2009 the World Ocean Summit will be held in Manado, where various issues will be discussed, especially how to prevent natural catastrophes," he said.
