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.

Australia to provide funds for reducing gas emissions in Indonesia

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesia is one of the countries to which Australia will give priority in the channeling of its Global Initiative on Forest Climate (GIFC) funds to finance efforts to reduce global CO2 gas emissions, a forestry official said here on Friday.

Indonesian Forestry Center spokesman Achmad Fauzi said in a press statement Australia would prioritize Indonesia because the latter was one of the countries possessing the world`s largest forest areas and located near Australia.

He said Australian Prime Minister John Howard had announced a fund allocation amounting to A$200 million in the form of global funds to finance greenhouse gas emission reduction activities in a number of countries.

The activities would include efforts to prevent forest damage, forest rehabilitation, reforestation and sustainable forest management, Fauzi said.

To realize the program, the foreign ministers of Australia and Indonesia had issued a joint announcement on "Kalimantan Forest and Climate Partnership," he said.

Fauzi said in the announcement, the Australian government had pledged to provide A$30 million for, among other things, peat land rehabilitation in Kalimantan provinces.

To follow up the announcement, Australian Ambassador to Indonesia Bill Farmer and the Indonesian forestry minister as well as the head of the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) signed last month a subsidiary arrangement document between the government of Indonesia and the government of Australia relating to a program of bilateral cooperation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with deforestation in Indonesia.

Fauzi said the cooperation program would be effective for five years as of October 2007, with the main activities to be carried out to support the Indonesian government in the Working Group Reducing Emissions, Capacity Building in handling forest and peat land fires, research and rehabilitation.

He said the Indonesian government and its Australian counterpart had been preparing an implementing plan for the subsidiary arrangements.

For this purpose, the senior officials of both nations would meet some time in the near future and conduct a field study in the peat land areas and national parks in Kalimantan, Fauzi said.
