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.

Bulog prioritizes purchase of domestic unhulled rice

Semarang, C Java (ANTARA News) - National Logistics Agency (Bulog) President Director Mustafa Abubakar said Bulog remained to prioritize the purchase of domestic unhulled rice and rice while rice imports would only be the last choice for the national rice procurement.

Mustafa made the remark to demonstrators from the Indonesian Muslim University Students` Action Unit (KAMMI) here Thursday when he attended Bulog`s technical coordination meeting on the procurement of unhulled rice/rice 2007.

"What you are proposing now conforms to what we are discussing at the meeting today. We are monitoring that the procurement of unhulled rice/rice from regions is not so fluent as we are expecting," he told the demonstrators.

"We are discussing to find out difficulties the farmers are facing in sending their harvest results to Bulog, complaints lodged by officials in the food sector, farmer groups and other farmer organizations," he said.

According to Mustafa, the measure was taken in an effort to increase the purchase of unhulled rice/rice from the farmers for the national food procurement.

In support of the measure, Bulog also involved new graduates from the agriculture faculty of 13 universities and the Indonesian Farmers Association among other farmer organizations, he said.

"After the meeting, we will go to the field to know difficulties the farmers are facing from themselves in selling their unhulled rice or rice to Bulog," he added.

"Please help prevent unhulled rice/rice in Central Java from being taken by speculators. Don`t let speculators illegally hoard the staple. Don`t let rice disappear (on the market) causing high prices," he said.

During the rally, KAMMI among others called for an increase in the government purchasing price for unhulled rice to Rp3,000 per kilogram, buying unhulled rice/rice directly from farmers, diverting the use of funds amounting to Rp6.46 trillion to buy rice by Bulog to buying unhulled rice from farmers.

On the occasion, chairman of KAMMI`s Semarang chapter Muhith Harahap handed over unhulled rice from farmers to the Bulog president director.
