“ … 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.

Canoe business promises endless fun along the shore of Sindu beach

Dicky Christanto, The Jakarta Post, Sanur

"Look. I'm going to that patch of water over there," Kadek told his playfriends that evening. The four-year old was sitting in a canoe.

He enthusiastically moved the paddle, pushing the water to the back of the canoe. The resulting momentum launched the canoe and moved it away from the shore of Sindu beach, Sanur.

His little hands gripped the paddle tightly, struggling to reach the spot he was aiming for. He smiled proudly as he reached it. It was obvious the canoe was the most exciting thing he could imagine that afternoon.

Unlike Kuta Beach that offers high waves to thrill those who like surfing, beaches in Sanur area offer much calmer swell, which suits children and others who long to get wet.

"The relatively quiet water here is the main reason we started the canoe rental business," Wayan Martika, owner of the canoe told The Jakarta Post.

Martika, who has a fleet of 20 canoes, was very busy that afternoon. As the beach grew more crowded Martika ran out of canoes. He had to convince potential customers to wait patiently for their turn to go out on the water.

When he started the canoe business around five years ago, Martika paid Rp 1.9 million (around US$211) per boat to canoe makers near his banjar (traditional neighborhood organization).

For a Rp 10,000 rental fee, visitors could take canoes without any fixed time limitation.

"I share their happiness today. I am very thankful for the profit I have made."

On busy days like that Wednesday afternoon, Martika said he could bring in anywhere from Rp 100,000 to Rp 150,000, which was money used to support his family.

But part of that day's profit would have to be tucked away, he said, "just in case there aren't any customers tomorrow".

Along with four other canoe owners in the area, Martika shares all the ups and downs the canoe business has to offer. Unlike business people who often try to undermine competitors, Martika acknowledged that he and his colleagues in the rental business had managed to create a healthy business environment.

"We fairly divide the area of the beach among the five of us and we have also set a standard rental tariff to ensure that everybody can benefit from the business together."

I Made Sedyadana, another canoe owner, shared similar feelings. He acknowledged that one of the important factors keeping him in the business was his friendship with other canoe proprietors at Sindu.

Sedyadana, who said he could save up to Rp 500,000 per month from the canoe business, also owns a passenger boat that takes tourists out to Nusa Penida Island.

"Over the last few years the number of visitors to this area has kept increasing. Based on this trend, I am very optimistic that the business will generate more profit in the future," he said.

However, Martika and Sedyadana admitted they hadn't been able to develop the canoe business to the extent they had dreamed. The reason: they didn't have the guts to take out a loan from the bank to expand the business.

"Somehow, I feel very reluctant to go to the bank to borrow money. I wonder if a villager like me can understand the sophisticated procedure involved. And I'm afraid I'll get trapped in debts that I can't handle," Martika said.
