“ … 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.

Imports Expected to Slump Due to Rupiah Depreciation

In another sign that the country’s economy is slowing down, the country’s imports are expected to drop by nearly 15 percent in value this year because of the rupiah’s depreciation and slowing production.


On the other hand, lower than expected growth, caused by the global economic turmoil, is credited for putting further downward pressure on the rupiah.


“Industry is likely to reduce its buying [of imports] because the dollar is more expensive now [making foreign-made goods more expensive],” said H. Amirudin Saud, chairman of the Importers Association of Indonesia, or Ginsi.


This means that industry players would buy more raw materials from the domestic market and import “only if absolutely necessary,” he said.


The weaker demand for raw materials and capital goods, including machinery and other items, means that imports would fall to around $110 billion this year, a drop of nearly 15 percent from last year.


The country’s export industry is predicted to suffer the brunt of the global economic slowdown and therefore is likely to reduce demand for raw materials and capital goods.


Total imports value last year stood at $128.79 billion, data from the central statistics bureau agency show. Import of raw materials contributed to 76.95 percent of the total figure, while imports of capital goods contributed to 16.52 percent. As for the exports figure for the whole of 2008, Indonesia recorded a growth of 19.86 percent compared to 2007, thanks to windfall profits resulting from soaring commodity prices, such as crude palm oil, earlier in the year. Exports in 2008 came in at $136.76 billion, up from $107.80 billion in 2007.


But the global economic slowdown is expected to push down export growth this year to between 1 percent and 2.5 percent, far below the government’s previous forecast of 5 percent and the lowest level for the first time since 1982.


The downturn’s effect on exports also helped push down the rupiah, with the currency declining for a fifth week, its longest losing streak since November 2007.


The rupiah declined 4.1 percent this month, the biggest loser among Asia’s 10 most-active currencies outside Japan. Bank Indonesia Governor Boediono said on Thursday the central bank would continue to “guard” the currency.


“Concerns about the global economy are weakening the rupiah,” said Shinta Zaiharwani, head of treasury at PT Bank Maybank Indocorp in Jakarta. “The rupiah will stay below 12,000 with BI intervention.”


The rupiah fell 0.8 percent this week to 11,770 per dollar as of 5 p.m. in Jakarta, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The currency earlier dropped to 12,230, the lowest level this year.


Boediono also said the currency would strengthen by year-end as investors waiting to see the outcome of the July presidential elections resume buying the nation’s assets after the polls.
