“ … 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.

Indonesian Minister Hopes to Hook Loans For Fishermen

Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Fadel Muhammad wants to see the fisheries sector receive at least 20 percent of the funds earmarked by the government as part of a soft-loans scheme to promote the development of micro- and small businesses.

“Of a total of Rp 20 trillion [$2.1 billion] allocated by the government to finance the small-business loan scheme, I hope to secure some 20 to 25 percent of the money for the fisheries sector,” Fadel said during a discussion about the ministry’s first 100-day program with fishermen at Muara Angke fishing port in North Jakarta on Friday.

He said the money could be used to develop businesses in the fisheries sector.

During a cabinet meeting on Thursday, Fadel acknowledged that the sector had been badly neglected compared with other areas of the economy, such as agriculture and mining, resulting in lower incomes for fishermen and a lack of access to bank loans and services. On average, fishermen make only about Rp 900,000 a month, he said.

Fadel’s comments were welcomed by Syahruna Fauzi, the chairman of the Jakarta branch of the Progressive Fishermen and Farmers Association (KTNA).

“Our conservative banking system has not catered to fishermen’s needs. For example, the banks won’t accept boats as collateral for loans. We don’t know why this should be the case,” he said.

Fishermen face additional difficulties, Syahruna said, including an inhospitable climate. He noted that fishermen have to tie up their boats during the wet season, normally between October and February, due to high seas and strong winds, leaving them without a source of income for four months every year.

Sofyan Basir, president director of state-owned PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia, said banks were committed to supporting small businesses in the fisheries sector, but admitted “the loans currently disbursed to the sector are very low.”

However, he said banks recently had relaxed lending criteria for fishermen.

“If the money is lent through the government’s soft loans scheme, it shouldn’t be a problem. Banks can even use boats bought by under the soft loans scheme as collateral,” he said.

The government should improve supporting infrastructure to help fishermen store and distribute their catches before banks would be willing to risk larger investment in the sector, Sofyan said. “Otherwise, I’m afraid many of the loans will turn bad.”

Regarding infrastructure, Syahruna said the country’s port facilities were grossly inadequate. Nearly half of the 20 fishing ports managed by the central government lacked the necessary infrastructure, such as cold storage facilities and good transportation links, according to figures from the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry. The vast majority of the 33 fishing ports managed by local governments are even worse.

“Poor road access to the ports and a lack of sanitation and hygiene facilities are the main problems,” said Yan Winata Sasmita, chairman of the Indonesian Fishermen’s Association (HNSI) .

Inadequate roads make it difficult to transport fresh fish to the markets, he said.

Responding to the fishermen’s concerns, Fadel promised to do his best to improve port infrastructure, in collaboration with the Public Works Ministry, although he gave no specific commitments.
