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.

West Sumatran coastal residents worry about imminent earthquake

Padang (ANTARA News) - Most residents of West Sumatra`s coastal areas continue to worry about a more powerful earthquake and subsequent tsunami in the days ahead following the recording of at least 16 tremors this month.

Joni, a resident of Mentawai Islands district, said on Wednesday, people on the islands continued to worry about an imminent earthquake because the epicenters of past temblors were mostly located near the islands.

He said the anxiety of the people there was worsened by local media reports that a powerful earthquake measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale was predicted to strike West Sumatran coastal areas next December.

"The people are getting more anxious following media reports that a powerful earthquake will occur in late December this year," Joni said.

Meanwhile, Siberut Selatan sub district head Paulinus said he had tried to obtain accurate information about the local media reports by asking the Meteorology and Geophysics Agency (BMG) and the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) but none of them said for sure that the feared earthquake would really happen in late December.

"However, we continue to ask the people to remain alert but not necessarily to be in deep anxiety," Paulinus said, adding that nevertheless various preparations had been made to anticipate the earthquake because the Mentawai islands are quake-prone.

In Bengkulu province, authorities at provincial, regional and municipal levels had begun taking steps to prepare the public for a powerful earthquake and tsunami predicted to happen in December by Brazilian earthquake observer Prof Jucelino Nobrega da Luz.

"We expect all districts and municipalities in Bengkulu province to take all steps necessary to prepare the people for the earthquake and tsunami. We at provincial administration level will provide whatever assistance they need," Bengkulu Governor Agusrin Maryono Najamuddin said after a coordination meeting recently.

At the meeting attended also by Bengkulu province`s police chief, Brig Gen Soedibyo, military commander, Brig Gen Amril Amir, and Bengkulu City Mayor Ahmad Kanedi it was agreed the provincial administration would provide 5,000-watt power generators, bathing, washing, toilet and other facilities in a number of designated avacuation areas.
