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.

Green Whistle-Blowing: Now by Text

Did you catch someone in the act of dumping buckets full of trash or toxic material into a river near you? Do you have a burning desire to tell off the government for doing little to halt the destruction of forests? If you want these matters heard and addressed directly by the government, just pick up your mobile phone.

The State Ministry of the Environment on Tuesday invited members of the public to text their environment-related complaints to a new hotline – 0811-932-932. The launch of the number coincides with a new Ministry Web site,, dedicated to news, views, and existing regulations on the environment.

“We received so many complaints, mostly through letters, fax or e-mail, but the methods were ineffective and took a long time. It is simpler for villagers or anybody else to text, rather than find access to the Internet and type out their complaints,” said Ilyas Asaad, deputy minister for environmental compliance. He added that on average the Ministry received 190 complaints a year.

“With the new system, the Ministry is hoping that we can also monitor environmental conditions in Papua. One of the difficulties for monitoring environmental conditions is the relationship between locals and the district or subdistrict administrations,” Ilyas said.

He said administrators across the nation were still finding it a challenge to incorporate environmental issues in their local regulations.

“Ideally, all complaints should be taken into account. But because we still lack resources and the necessary funding, we need to set priorities and will, for example, go after larger companies instead of smaller ones,” Ilyas said.

Berry Nahdian Furqon, executive director of the Indonesian Forum for the Environment (Walhi), said the biggest challenge for the ministry was the steps the government would take once it received the complaints.

“The operational action counts. The relationship between the central government and regional administrations has been quite loose. The Ministry needs all the help they can receive from local administrations,” Berry said.

Furthermore, he said that green groups could use the system to address their complaints but they would still maintain their own independent methods to express their opinions.
