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.

Stakeholders demand end to state monopoly

Stakeholders in Indonesia’s shipping industry have requested the government to review a regulation that maintains the monopoly of state firms in the delivery of port services.

The stakeholders, including members of the association of dock workers and the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin), argue that the regulation can be seen as a violation of the newly amended shipping law.

A 2009 Transportation Ministry regulation “implicitly” protects the monopoly of state firms in all services provided at ports, including stevedoring, Kadin sea transportation committee deputy chairman Arthur Warokka said Tuesday.

All stevedoring activities (the loading and unloading of goods) at 112 commercial ports, including 25 “strategic ports“, across Indonesia are now managed by four state-owned companies, namely PT Pelindo I, PT Pelindo II, PT Pelindo III and PT Pelindo IV, which hire private stevedores as partners in their operations.

“It seems the government is reluctant to open stevedoring business to private firms. This regulation contradicts the 2008 Shipping Law which is aimed at ending monopolistic practices in shipping,” Arthur said.

Association of Indonesian Stevedoring Companies (APBMI) chairman Bambang Ketut Rahwardi shared Arthur’s sentiment, saying he was disappointed with the government.

“The shipping law clearly stipulates that private firms are allowed to take part in port business, including stevedoring,” he said.

At present, private stevedoring agencies only benefited from outsourcing programs carried out by state companies, Bambang said. About 85 percent of stevedoring activities were provided through outsourcing, he said.

“At present, our association represents 843 stevedoring agencies across Indonesia, employing more than 100,000 people. Just imagine how vital our role is,” he said.

Most APBMI members operate at Indonesia’s main ports, namely Tanjung Priok in Jakarta, Makassar Port in South Sulawesi, Belawan Port in Medan, North Sumatra and Tanjung Perak Port in Surabaya, East Java.

Between January and September, 2,767,594 twenty foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers arrived and departed at Tanjung Priok, Indonesia’s biggest port and also the gateway to 65 percent of Indonesia’s exports and imports.

The port is targeting to manage up to 3,8 million TEUs of containers by expanding its three container facilities — the Jakarta International Container Terminal (JICT), the Koja Container Terminal and the port’s conventional terminal.

APBMI East Java chapter chief Prijanto said the poor quality of services and high costs in ports today were mainly the result of Pelindo’s monopolies.

“We are currently only Pelindo’s subcontractors. We are willing to improve our service quality but we are limited because the current stevedoring authority is Pelindo,” he said.

If port businesses were open to private firms, it would automatically create competition, improve the quality of services, efficiency and costs, Prijanto said.

“We are ready to compete and invest if allowed,” he said.

The chief of Kadin’s sea transportation committee, Carmelita Hartoto, said she understood that the government might have forgotten about mentioning private stevedores in the regulation.

“Therefore, we would like to ask the government to at least guarantee, in a transportation minister decree, the private stevedores’ right to operate,” she said.

Sea Transportation Director General Sunaryo denied that the government was reluctant to let private firms operate ports’ stevedoring activities.

“We basically will not close the door to private companies. That is our commitment … any disputes regarding the regulation can be discussed to settle misperceptions” he told The Jakarta Post via text message. (bbs)
