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.

One In Three Indonesia's 73,000 Villages Prone To Natural Disaster

Bernama, January 04, 2011

JAKARTA, Jan 4 (Bernama) -- One in three of Indonesia's 73,000 villages is prone to natural disasters, Antara news agency quoted National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB) Chief Syamsul Maarif as saying on Tuesday.

"We predict that 184 districts and cities in Indonesia can be hit by an earthquake," he said here on Tuesday at a meeting at the office of the Coordinating Minister for People's Welfare in Jakarta.

While 150 cities are facing the risk of being engulfed by tsunami, 78 eight cities and districts can be impacted by a volcanic eruption, 176 districts are prone to flooding and 154 cities to landslides.

In 2011, he said the extreme weather with the potential of causing floods , flash floods and landslides was predicted to reach its peak in the January-March period.

In order to reduce casualties and material losses due to natural disasters, he said, BNPB had started to map all disaster-prone areas in Indonesia.

The map was needed to support local governments` efforts to draw up maps of the vulnerable areas. These areas must not be used for housing development or construction of public places.

He said BNPB would also call for alertness of government officials and local people.

Up till now, he said, from the total of 497 districts and cities in Indonesia, 306 had established a Regional Disaster Management Agency .

"Our target is to have each region set up its own disaster management agency by 2012," Syamsul said.

For this year, BNPB received Rp795 billion from the National Budget n (APBN) and Rp17 billion from grants to conduct its activities.
