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.

Cow Exports Halted

Tempo Interactive, Friday, 15 January, 2010 | 18:16 WIB

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Agriculture Minister Suswono has rejected Malaysia’s request that Indonesia export live calves to this country. He conveyed his rejection during a meeting with Malaysian Agriculture and Industrial Principle Minister, Nuh bin Anwar, yesterday.

“The law bans exporting cattle before domestic needs are fulfilled,” Suswono told reporters.

Suswono said Indonesia is still importing more than 350.000 live cattle every year. However, last year the Gorontalo regency government made an agreement with Malaysia concerning live cattle imports to the country. Due to the export ban, the Malaysian Agriculture Minister requested that the Indonesian government continue the exports. “What Gorontalo did was a mistake because there was no coordination with the central government,” he said.

The government, Suswono added, is studying the implications of this arbitrary agreement termination. According to Suswono, Malaysia can accept the export termination because it is against the law. “We offered them to invest and if the domestic needs are met they can import the cattle,” he said.

The Gorontalo provincial government’s spokesperson, Sudarman Samad, said the Malaysian Agriculture Minister plans to visit Gorontalo tomorrow to discuss this problem. “They want to ask why the cattle export was halted,” he said, contacted yesterday.

Samad said the decision to export cattle to Malaysia was taken when Fadel Muhammad was governor. The exports were done by province-owned enterprises together with the local livestock office.

The decision to export cattle was also endorsed by the Trade Department. The Gorontalo government decided to do the exports because it had the authority following the implementation of the regional autonomy regulation. However, Samad did not know exactly why the exports were halted, saying, “Technically, it is the state-owned enterprises and Governor Fadel who know the details.”

PT Gorontalo Fitrah Mandiri director, Halim Usman, said cattle exports from Gorontalo to Malaysia have only been done twice, in 2007 and 2008. However, in 2009, the exports were halted because the Law no. 18/2009, banning cattle exports, was enacted.

Halim admitted he learnt about export termination only today from the Agriculture Minister’s statement, even though there were prior indications that the exports were to be ended. “We arranged the export license for 2009, but the permit took a long time to be issued. Then we heard that the export license was rejected,” he said.

The Gorontalo government had in fact signed an MoU with the Malaysian government to export 20.000 cattle. However, only a few hundreds have been exported. Yet, according to Halim, the Malaysian government had spent investment funds for calves, cattle fattening, abattoir construction, and the start of a corn farm to produce animal feed.
