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 calls for harder work to implement climate change action plan

New York (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Environment Minister Rachmat Witoelar called on all countries in the world to work harder to implement the Bali Action Plan agreed on at the Climate Change Conference in Bali last year.

"We should remember that we only have little time, namely in 2008 and 2009 to formulate the four challenges of mitigation, adaptation, transfer of technology and funding, including adaptation funding and illegal logging," Witoelar said at a United Nations General Assembly session on climate change here on Tuesday.

He said both developing and developed countries should work hard to implement the action plan because of the little time left.

The Bali Action Plan is a global plan adopted at the Bali conference to tackle global climate change.

Witoelar said the developed nations should take the lead in implementing the action plan, stressing also, however, that the efforts would only be successful if all parties, including the developing nations, private sector and the peoples of the world, took an active part.

"Developing nations will act more in conjunction with the ambitious commitment of the developed nations," he said.

Indonesia, he added, would keep on playing a role to ensure that all related parties would hand-in-hand realize the commitment to holding a meeting on climate change in 2009.

Representatives from more than 190 countries at the Bali conference managed to pave the way for the formulation of a new framework to repalce the Kyoto Protocol which would expire in 2012.

The Bali Road Map which the Bali conference also produced ackowledged the need to reduce greenhouse emission dramatically, draft a new protocol by 2009 so it could take effect in 2012.

The map obliged the developed nations to reduce their green house emission while the developing nations were asked to do likewise voluntarily.

The developed nations were also requested to transfer environment-friendly technology to the developing or poor nations to help the latter face climate change.

Witoelar also said Indonesia had launched a national action plan (RAN) on climate change in support of the global action plan.

RAN contained guidelines for all parties in Indonesia involved in efforts to cope with climate change.

Indonesia, he said, was now in the process of setting up a climate change center as a starting point to implement the national action plan, facilitate and supervise the utilization of technical assistance from, and the conduct of cooperation, with the international community in efforts to handle climate change.
