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.

Flashflood hits 22 villages in Belu

Yemris Fointuna, The Jakarta Post, Kupang

Flashfloods hit 22 villages in Belu regency on West Timor, East Nusa Tenggara, on Monday, following three days of rain.

The floods were caused by the overflow of the Benenain River. No casualties have been reported, but at least 10,000 people have been evacuated.

Head of Belu regency social service office Arnold Bria said in Atambua that at least 1,000 houses were flooded, with many people's belongings being swept away entirely.

He said that 13 of the 22 affected villages were located in Malaka Barat district, five at Weliman district and four at Malaka Tengah district.

"The flooding was caused by heavy downfalls on hilly areas in the Timor Tengah Utara and Timor Tengah Selatan regencies," he said.

He said the three affected districts were low-lying and regularly flooded.

"The water is 1.52 meters deep at present. If the rain continues falling we fear it will get higher," he said.

The worst hit areas were Kakeu Laran and Bicolo hamlets at Lasaen village in Malaka Barat district, where most of the houses were flooded. Thousands of hectares of agricultural land was also inundated.

Businesses and schools were also shut Monday as many buildings in the area were damaged.

The Belu regency administration has said it plans to relocate residents of a river embankment that is prone to flooding.

"The administration is in the process of persuading local noted figures to release parts of their land for the purpose," Belu deputy regent Gregorius Mau Bili said.

Other efforts to help protect local people from the threat of floods include the construction of flood prevention walls along the Benenain River.

Malaka Barat district chief Remigius Asa said his office was badly in need of rubber boats to help distribute supplies to the affected villages, which were unreachable by land.

"Accesses to the affected regions has been blocked by thick mud so that rubber boats are the only solution to supplying assistance," he said.
