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.

Catch 22 for Cilicap's fishermen

Agus Maryono, The Jakarta Post, Cilacap | Wed, 12/24/2008 10:49 AM 


Fish auction facilities, under the commission of local cooperatives in Cilacap, Central Java, have failed to lure fishermen away from unofficial loan providers, known locally as juragan, despite the often unfair conditions placed on them.


The fishermen have continued to sell their catches directly to the juragan, who usually also own the boats.


As a result, fish auction facilities, which should have acted as fish trade centers, have become idle.


Leader of the Cilacap chapter of the Indonesian Fishermen's Association (HSNI), Atas Munandar, told The Jakarta Post that the fish trading method has been in place for generations and would be hard to abolish.


"The system has it's positive as well as negative sides," Atas said.


The positive, according to Atas, is that fishermen are able to easily obtain much needed loans from the juragan because of the casual nature of the lending, which relies on trust.


"However, on the negative side, fishermen never know the real price of their catches. They must follow what the boat owners say and accept any amount of earnings," Atas said.


Atas added that, because of this problem, poverty prevails among fishermen; 90 percent of the approximately 35,000 fishermen in Cilacap live in absolute poverty.


"The fishermen should sell their catch through the available fish auction houses, so they can establish clear price standards," Atas said.


He added however, that virtually all seven auction facilities in Cilacap lay dormant.


"But I don't blame the fishermen, because the auction facilities can not meet all the fishermen's needs, such as lending capital, so they have to rely on the unscrupulous middlemen.


"It's actually a classic problem, but the ones on the losing end are the fishermen. I've conveyed this matter to every relevant official up to the minister's level but have not achieved anything so far. The cooperatives set up by the Cilacap mayoralty are ineffective because they cannot meet the fishermen's needs," Atas said.


Fishermen say they can not do anything about the middlemen determining the fish prices.


"Actually, I'm sad because I never receive earnings according to what I've yielded. But what else can I do, I owe them debts," Marno, 29, a fisherman in Cilacap told the Post.


Marno, who works under a boat owner, said his catch is divided equally among crew members and the boat's owner, who then requires them to sell the catch to an appointed middlemen. "If I disobey him, I won't be allowed to use his boat again," Marno said.


Another fisherman Dimin, 40, opined that fishermen will never lead decent lives. "The ones who get rich are boat owners and middlemen. We, who toil under the scorching sun, will be poor eternally," he said, adding that fish auction facilities should have been able to buy fish from them at Rp 7,000 per kilogram, instead of the middlemen's maximum price of Rp 2,500 per kilogram.
