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 climate turns Fonterra off investing in dairy facilities

Novia D. Rulistia, The Jakarta Post, Jakarta | Thu, 04/24/2008 12:25 AM

New Zealand-based milk producer Fonterra Group says it is unlikely to invest in processing facilities in Indonesia as the climate and environmental conditions are less than ideal for breeding cows and milk of its desired standards.

"We choose to expand our investment in countries which have cooler climates, such as China, Australia and North America," managing director for Asia, Middle East and Africa, Mark Wilson said Tuesday.

He said in those countries there was no need to spend extra money feeding the cows as grass was always abundant. In Indonesia, most cow farmers have to buy grass to feed their cattle.

"It doesn't mean that we are closing the door on investment here, but efficiency is still our main consideration," he said.

The multinational company was established by groups of farmer cooperatives comprising 11,600 cow farmers. It produces milk for the Anlene, Anmum and Boneeto brands.

It also supplies butter and other milk-based products to international food companies, such as Pizza Hut and Bread Talk.

Fonterra Brands Indonesia president director Maspiyono Handoyo said the company's investment in the country was in the form of marketing, not in processing.

"We cooperate with local industry in processing the raw materials, most of which are still imported," he said.

According to Maspiyono, Indonesia is one of the biggest Fonterra markets in Asia and the Middle East despite a milk consumption rate that is lower than other countries.

He declined to provide the company's exact market share here.

Last year, Indonesia's milk consumption reached nine liters per capita, up from 7.7 liters a year earlier. That is still lower than in the Philippines, China, Malaysia and Thailand.

However, Maspiyono is optimistic the national market for milk had a bright future, as it is projected to grow by 13 percent annually.
