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.

Minister: all types of forests must be given compensation

Nusa Dua, Bali (ANTARA News) - Forestry Minister MS Kaban has stated that all types of Indonesian forests must be given compensation in the scheme of REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation).

"All of them have correlation in the efforts to reduce emissions as part of the fight against climate change," Minister MS Kaban said here on Thursday on the sidelines of the 13th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change being held in Nusa Dua, Bali Island, from December 3 to 14, 2007.

The minister also said that the compensation should be awarded not only for the trees which could absorb CO2 but also for biodiversity and the water catchment function as well.

Compensation for non-timber could be in the form of transfer of technology and research cooperation as stated in the REDD scheme`s conservation section, he said.

However, the implementation would depend on multilateral and bilateral cooperation agreements, he said.

He cited a 1,200-hectare project in Bromo, Tengger, Yogyakarta, with the cooperation of Japan as an example of the implementation of bilateral cooperation in the compensation project.

Minister Kaban said that Indonesia received appreciation for its achievement in reducing forest degradation in the Forest-11 plus 18 meeting attended by 18 countries having tropical forests and advanced countries such as Germany, Britain, the US and Japan which had been held on the sidelines of the 13th COP UNFCCC.

The forest degradation rate between 1997 and 2000 in Indonesia was 2.8 million hectares, and the figure decreased to 1.08 million hectares between 2001 and 2005.

Kaban said that his ministry had disbursed rehabilitation funds amounting to one billion US dollars, an increased of 800 percent from the previous period.

The Indonesian forestry ministry had set a target to plant trees on a total of five million hectares of arid land.
