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.

Crab-shelling housewives feel global pinch

Fadli, The Jakarta Post, Batam | Mon, 12/22/2008 11:06 AM 


For six years a dozen housewives have been gathering 'round a table on Bulang Kebam Island of the Riau Islands, but they're not there to gossip and play mah-jongg.


No, the table is this fishy smelling room is full of boiled crabs which they are patiently and diligently shelling.


The meat will be sent to an exporter before heading on to the United States, its final destination. The current financial crisis has also had an impact on these ladies' income, as crabmeat no longer fetches a good price.


The owner of the Batam municipality facility, Ita Karim, 40, told The Jakarta Post recently that before the crisis, the export price of a kilogram of crabmeat could reach Rp 160,000 (about US$14.50), but now it had dropped to Rp 100,000 per kg.


"The price has gradually dropped over the past month. Even though orders are still coming in, we don't know if we can survive. If it's no longer possible, I'll just have to close the shop," Ita said.


Ita and her husband have been buying seafood products, such as fish, crabs and shrimp, from the island's fishermen for dozens of years.


They began supplying crabmeat in 2002, when one of the Lampung-based exporters placed an order.


The exporter then opened a branch in Batam where he continued to purchase crabmeat but sent it to Lampung where it is packaged and sent on to the U.S.


"Crabs are boiled to a certain temperature, not too cooked nor too raw, so they're easy to peel," Ita said.


Local housewives are employed on a regular basis who are paid according to the amount of meat they shell. The fee for each kilogram of shelled meat was Rp 30,000 before, but has dropped to Rp 20,000 now due to its falling price.


The women then divide the total earnings equally among themselves, each earning at least Rp 100,000 daily.


According to Ita, from about 100 kg of crabs, only 40 kg of meat can be obtained.


A number of tools are needed to remove the meat, such as hammers and pliers. The shells are later gathered to make into fertilizer.


The workers are not allowed to use cosmetics because they can contaminate the meat. They are also asked to wear head covers during work.


"This business will close down if the global economic recession continues due to the lack of a domestic market for crabmeat," Ita said.


Ita is the only crab collector on Bulang Kebam Island. She said many similar businesses can be found all over Batam, but she is unclear of the exact number.


A mother of two who works at the facility, Warti, 35, voiced her concern over the drop in crabmeat prices overseas.


"My husband doesn't have a steady income, so we always rely on my earnings. If the orders stop and the business closes, I must find another job," Warti said.


Bulang Kebam Island, situated about 15 minutes from Batam Island, still lacks access to clean water, power and telephone connections.


It relies on a generator that operates from 6 p.m. until 11.00 p.m., and artesian wells as a clean water source.
