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.

Derivatives May Land Banks In Court

Exporters and importers may resort to legal action against banks to prevent further losses from complicated, speculative investment products such as derivatives.


Toto Dirgantoro, chairman of the Indonesian Exporters Association, or GPEI, said some members have complained that banks pushed them into signing derivatives contracts without properly explaining the potential risks involved.


“Some of our members have asked to cancel their contracts, but the banks have refused,” Toto said on Monday. “If these banks continue to refuse to cancel these contracts, we’ll pursue legal action.”


Derivatives are financial instruments that derive value from one or more underlying assets, including currencies, stocks or commodities. These contracts, which are usually held for hedging or speculative purposes, include futures and options.


Banks usually offer derivatives to take advantage of exchange-rate fluctuations. In Indonesia, these products have mainly been offered by foreign banks or lenders partly owned by foreign institutions.


Toto said many of its members were offered derivative contracts when the US dollar was still hovering around Rp 9,200 . A typical derivative scheme from the past year, he said, required a firm to sell a specified amount of US dollars per week for a period of a year to banks at an agreed rate of Rp 9,800 per dollar.


“Lots of exporters and importers were attracted to derivatives because they thought they would be profitable,” Toto said. “They were unaware of the risks involved if the rupiah fell, and the banks did not offer customers the option to cancel contracts if the rupiah plummeted.”


Many exporters and importers began to encounter problems when the global financial crisis caused the rupiah and commodity prices to plunge in September.


The rupiah bottomed out at Rp 12,600 on Nov. 20. At this point, holders of derivative contracts had to buy dollars in the open market at higher rates, and then sell them back to the banks at the agreed rates.


Many exporters were hammered as weakening exports meant they brought in fewer dollars. Toto said he did not know the extent of these losses. “One company held a contract worth more than $10 million,” he said.


In December, Bank Indonesia, the central bank, banned banks from signing new derivative contracts to speculate on the movement of the rupiah. Existing contracts were permitted to continue, however.


Wimboh Santoso, BI’s bureau chief of financial system stabilization, said contracts can be canceled if both parties agree to terminate the transactions.


BI will mediate in disputes and offers a range of restructuring schemes, including the option of converting customer liabilities into loans that have to be paid back gradually. Toto said companies and banks should ideally pursue other avenues, however.


“We don’t want these contracts to be converted into loans because we didn’t borrow this money for productive purposes,” Toto said. “We’re proposing that banks cancel these contracts and share the losses 50-50. That’s the only fair way.”


Last week, BI said that derivative-related losses at banks could significantly erode their 2008 net profits. PT Bank Danamon Tbk recently announced that its 2008 net profit fell by 29 percent to Rp 1.5 trillion , from Rp 2.11 trillion in 2007. The decline was due to a loss of Rp 800 billion on forward foreign-exchange contracts.
