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.

Two NGOs to report former forestry minister to KPK

Antara News, Thursday, December 10, 2009 04:05 WIB

Pekanbaru (ANTARA News) - Two environmental advocacy groups here plan to report former forestry minister MS Kaban to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) for suspected irregularities in the granting of concessions to industrial forest company PT RAPP.

"We suspect PT RAPP obtained industrial forest concessions in Riau province`s Kampar Peninsula because of gratification and collusion," Hariansyah Usman, executive director of the Riau branch of the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi) said here Wednesday.

He said Walhi and another non-governmental organization, Jikalahari, were already in possession of evidence strongly indicating irregularities in the way PT RAPP had won the right to operate on 350,165 hectares of forested land in the Kampar Peninsula. "We will soon report our findings to the KPK," he said.

The licenses signed by former forestry minister MS Kaban for PT Riau Andalan Pulp & Paper (RAPP) were in violation of a number of existing forestry regulations, he said.

In June 2009, or three months before he was replaced as forestry minister, Kaban had signed licenses that added 115,000 hectares to the company`s 235,000-hectare concession so that it now controlled a total of 350,165 hectares of forest land.

However, most of the concessions given to PT RAPP proved to overlap and were located in five protected forest areas, namely in the Rimbang Baliung Wildlife Reserve, the Tasik Pulau Padang Wildlife Reserve, the Danau Besar Reserve, the Tasik Belat Reserve and the Tesso Nilo National Park.

"Kaban also signed the licenses before the areas involved were measured. As a consequence, although in the official licenses the company would get 115,000 more hectares, in reality or after the measuring was done , its concession area increased by 122,000 hectares.

In view of these irregularities, Walhi and Jikalahari would report the case to the KPK, Hermasyah said.
