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.

Sanyo water filter to go on sale in Indonesia

The Yomiuri Shimbun, The Daily Yomiuri,

OSAKA--Sanyo Electric Co. announced a newly developed water filtration device for individual households and housing complexes will go on sale in Indonesia at the end of this month.

The device, which was developed in cooperation with Bandon Institute of Technology (BIT) in Indonesia, will be manufactured in Indonesia and will be priced at 700 dollars, or 83,000 yen, less than half the price of the existing models, according to Sanyo.

Sanyo intends to expand exports of the device eventually to other developing nations with inadequate waterworks, including India, China and Central American nations within fiscal 2007, hoping to boost its sales of eco-business-related products, the main theme of its business reconstruction plan.

The device, Aquaoasis, comprises a filter and ozone generator that creates ozone from oxygen in the air. It first removes fine debris by filtering well water and rain water, and then sterilizes the water by spraying ozone, making it clean enough to be used for washing dishes and vegetables.

BIT has contributed to the development by providing water quality data in various places in Indonesia and examining the effects of the device's sterilization.

Sanyo aims to sell 20,000 units mainly to middle- to high-income earners in fiscal 2007 and a total of 100,000 units by the end of fiscal 2009.

Sanyo also has developed a model equipped with solar battery system that is usable in places without electricity. The solar-powered device will go on sale from fiscal 2008. According to Sanyo, waterworks cover only 34 percent of Indonesia, and only 15 percent of households have waterworks in rural districts. Even when water is available, securing pure water is difficult due to deteriorated water pipes and other reasons.

The Indonesian government aims to supply purified water to 80 percent of the nation's population by 2015. However, it is difficult to construct a large-scale waterworks since the nation comprises many islands. Therefore, a smaller filtering system is expected to be widely used.
