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.

RI's natural resources could help cancer patients

The Jakarta Post

Research in the U.S. has shown 70 percent of diseases including cancer are related to unbalanced and unhealthy dieting, a herbal treatment expert said in Jakarta on Saturday.

U.S.-based Paulus W. Halim has been a herbal treatment consultant for cancer patients for 25 years and said Eastern medicine combined with Western cancer treatments including chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery and hormone therapy could offer new hope to cancer patients.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has predicted nine million people would die from cancer-related illnesses in 2015 and 11.4 million in 2030.

"Cancer cells are carried in the human body, even in a healthy person," Halim said.

And a decrease in the body's level of immunity can activate the development of these cells, he said.

WHO statistics show cancer killed approximately 206,000 people in Indonesia in 2005.

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women in Indonesia, while bronchus, trachea and lung cancers make up the leading causes of deaths among Indonesian men.

But Indonesia is one of the world's richest countries in terms of natural resources required to make up herbal treatments used to help fight cancer.

From the 40,000 varieties of flora worldwide, 30,000 exist in Indonesia.

And more than 900 of these were used in herbal medicine, Halim said.

Plants such as daun dewa (gynurae procumbensis folium), kunyit putih (kampfera rotunda) and varieties of edible mushrooms such as maitake (Grifola frondosa), shiitake (Lentinula edodes) and reishi (ganoderma lucidum) were just a few plants that could be used in the herbal treatment of cancer patients, he said.

In conjunction with herbal and conventional treatments, cancer patients should also ensure 80 percent of their diet consisted of fresh vegetables and fruits.

The remaining 20 percent should be made up of cooked foods including beans, Halim said.

"Don't feed cancer with foods (including) white sugar, sweetener, cow's milk or red meat," Halim said.

Too much of this type of food would encourage cancer cells to grow.

Halim said unhealthy psycho-emotional and hormonal conditions, a polluted environment and a reckless lifestyle including smoking and a lack of exercise should also be avoided.

He said cancer patients should follow a vegetarian diet "because humans are basically herbivore creatures".

Halim also said most people regarded food "as just food" but that cancer patients particularly should see food as a potential medicine.

Halim said a healthy mind and spirit were also essential in the fight against cancer.

"That is why maintaining a positive attitude and always being with people who care is important."
