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.

City to revive tourism in 1,000 Islands

Triwik Kurniasari, The Jakarta Post, JAKARTA | Thu, 03/05/2009 11:06 AM  

After more than a decade of tourism malaise on the Thousand Islands regency, the city has plans in store for a revival. 

The city administration will procure more accessible public transportation to serve the regency, including enlarging its airport runway from 930 meters to 1,400 meters to allow bigger planes to land at the airport, first built in 1990. 

“[The runway development] requires about Rp 180 billion [US$14 million], while we need Rp 300 billion to rebuild sea ports,” Regent Abdul Rachman said Wednesday.

The islets have faced a “tourism crisis” in the last 10 years, with more and more tourism business owners going bankrupt due to the decline in visitor numbers to the regency’s resorts, Abdul said.

“Of nine resorts on 45 islands, five are still in business, while the remainder are dying, with the occupancy rate dropping,” he said.

He added tourism on many islands was “dead or dying out”, including on Pelangi and Bira islets, famous for its golf course.

“Some islets still surviving are Pramuka, Sepa, Kotok, Putri, Ayer, Bidadari and Pantara,” Abdul added.

He blamed the lack of transportation and issuance of travel warnings from other countries for the drop in visitor numbers to the islets.

“Global warming and environmental degradation have also damaged out beautiful reefs,” he said.

“Garbage is also a big problem for us. Plastic bags and bottles, and oil spills that are sometimes found along the coastline, are very harmful to the coastal ecosystem. Nobody wants to visit to a dirty tourism destination, right?”

Culture and Tourism Agency head Arie Budhiman said the administration would try to provide cheap public transportation there.

“People are reluctant to go to the Thousand Islands because it’s so hard to get there. So we’re considering securing more access to the area,” he said.

“Besides rebuilding the public transportation system, we will also improve public facilities there.”

The regency, located 45 kilometers off the Jakarta coast, boasts a unique ecosystem comprising 110 islets, with most of the residents working as traditional fishermen.

Every islet has its own attractions. Pramuka, for instance, is famous for its raptors.

Bidadari is also a favorite place for family vacations or corporate meetings and getaways. It offers marine adventure activities for team-building exercises.

They can be reached by boat from Marina Ancol or Muara Angke Port.

In the 1980s, the Thousand Islands ranked third on a list of the world’s best islands, but are now renowned for the polluted surroundings, Abdul said.

“After 1998, when the economic crisis hit the country, tourist numbers dropped by 80 percent. 

Fortunately, though, we’ve seen an increase in the past couple of years,” Abdul said, adding there were about 50,000 tourists in 2008.

Arie said the administration would hold a workshop and invite stakeholders, as well as the owners of some islets, to seek solutions to the problems.

“We hope more people will invest in the islands. The administration and government can’t just work this program ourselves; we need private companies to support this,” he said.
