“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

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.

Traditional shipbuilder As'ad Abdullah: Relying on 'God-given' skill

Slamet Susanto, The Jakarta Post, Yogyakarta

A father of six, 70-year-old As'ad Abdullah from Pegerungan Kecil, Madura is
known as a traditional shipbuilder.

He relies on traditional instruments like a pasah (plane), a handsaw, a screwdriver and a tatah (chisel). When he needs to measure a piece of wood for his ship, he does it by eye, without relying on tools.

"The most important thing is the union of your eyes and heart. When your eyes look at something and you do not waver in your heart, rest assured your measurement will be accurate," Abdullah said. Your eyes and your heart will be united, he added, if you keep your heart clean.

"You must refrain from any feelings of envy or jealousy and submit yourself totally to God."

Owing to his traditional boat-making skills, As'ad has been assigned the job of making a vessel engraved as a relief at Borobodur temple, later called Borobodur Samudraraksa (Guardian of the Sea).

The vessel symbolizes the grandeur of the Indonesian people's ancestors, who were known to be seafarers as far back as the seventh century AD. The vessel that As'ad made on the basis of a model in the relief of Borobudur temple was later used for a voyage to trace what is historically known as the Cinnamon Route up to Madagascar and Ghana in Africa.

As'ad made this vessel traditionally, using neither a ruler nor nails. To obtain the curved shape of the wood, for example, he would simply put the wood in embers for some time.

"I saw only once the picture of the vessel I would later make and then remembered it well," he said.

It took him four months to make the vessel. In the process, As'ad, who was accompanied by a British expert, Nick Burningham, often debated with his British colleague. Burningham once doubted whether As'ad's vessel could ever float because it had been made in the traditional manner.

Burningham told him, As'ad said, that according to modern science, a shipmaker would start with the outer part of a ship's hold before proceeding with the inner part. As'ad, instead, believed it was the other way around.

"I didn't use a ruler and relied on my two eyes only when measuring the wood, so Nick was afraid the vessel was not symmetrical and would not be able to float. At one point, I told him flatly that if he did not trust me, he could make the vessel himself," As'ad said, reminiscing.

In June 2003 the vessel was put to the test in a voyage from Pagerungan to Bali, via Banyuwangi. On July 15, the vessel was inaugurated by State Minister for Tourism I Gde Ardika in Benoa, Bali, and on August 15, President Megawati saw it off at the start of an expedition to retrace the Cinnamon Route.

The vessel, manned by a crew of 14 people led by I Gusti Ngurah Sedana as captain, sailed on a four-month ocean voyage, visiting Mahajaga port, Madagascar, Ghana and South Africa before finally being put in a museum.

For the 40-ton vessel, which measures 18.26 meters long, 4.50 m. wide and 2.25 m. high, 100 cubic meters of wood of various kinds, such as nyamlong, teak and tamarind, were needed.

The ship, which has two sails with dual outriggers and is capable of carrying 15,000 liters of potable water, half a ton of food, half a ton of personal effects and two tons of spices, is also provided with navigational equipment such as a global positioning system device, an echo sounder (to ascertain the depth of sea water) and a satellite telephone.

As'ad said he had never learned from anybody how to make a vessel. He believed his ship-making skill was God's gift. He also said he had never took part in any particular religious rite before making a vessel. Instead, he submitted himself totally to God.

In 1970 he made his first vessel. It was a small fishing boat. "I kept thinking about vessels and imagining them. Then I started to make one and, lo and behold, I was able to make a fishing boat from a hollowed-out log. I realized then that God had bestowed on me this special skill," he said.

To date, he has made over 100 ships of various sizes. At present he is also making another, ordered from Banyuwangi. The 100-ton vessel is a reconstruction of one of the ships in the fleet of the Majapahit Kingdom.
