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.

Japan whale 'research' a flashpoint in global dispute

TOKYO — Japan says the work that goes on at the Institute of Cetacean Research is crucial for studying whale populations; critics counter it is a way to get around an international ban on commercial whaling.

The institute can be found in a nondescript white-brick office building in Tokyo's port district.

Down a hallway and through an unmarked door is a small lobby with a model ship, a poster showing various whale species, and a sign that reads "Keep Out".

Captured whales are studied by the Institute, which refers to its work on them as "lethal research" before their meat is sold across Japan, including in restaurants in nearby Tsukiji market, where a sushi-style piece of the purple flesh costs a few dollars.

Telephone and fax requests for an interview went unanswered. An AFP reporter who visited the office recently was confronted by two men who did not identify themselves.

"What are you doing here? You are not supposed to be here. You have to leave," one said in English.

When told the taxpayer-funded institute had not responded to AFP's interview requests, he said: "That means no. It means we're not interested."

Norway and Iceland are the only other nations that hunt whales in open defiance of a 1986 moratorium, and Japan's annual hunt has drawn criticism from both activists and foreign governments.

But the Institute insists "anti-whaling is not 'world opinion'".

"Rather, it is a predominantly Western phenomenon in developed countries amplified by anti-whaling fundraising NGOs (non-governmental organisations) and the Western media," it says on its website, pointing to hundreds of whaling research papers.

"The purpose of Japan's research is science -- science that will ensure that when commercial whaling is resumed it will be sustainable."

What Japan sees as research is at the heart of a bitter grudge match between militant activists intent on ending the nation's annual whale hunt and an equally determined Tokyo, which dismisses the campaigners as "terrorists".

Japan's whaling fleet left port in December aiming to catch about 1,000 whales in the icy waters of the Antarctic, where they are regularly pursued by militant environmentalist group Sea Shepherd. Activists said this year's hunt ended in March with no more than 75 whales killed.

They have clashed violently in exchanges that have in the past seen stink bombs thrown at Japanese crew and water jets trained on protesters. The bitter fight has also reached the legal arena with both sides launching lawsuits.

Tokyo says that researching the mammals is "perfectly legal" under international whaling rules, as is selling meat by-products. Organs including ovaries and stomach contents are crucial for research, the Institute says.

"Some indispensable data have to be collected by lethal means, which simply cannot be obtained by non-lethal means," it says, adding that death "is as rapid as possible".

"A large proportion of the whales taken are killed instantly by an explosive harpoon".

Critics question what remains for the Institute to conclude about sustainable whale populations after carrying out its research in the decades since the moratorium on international whaling was established.

"They (the Institute) don't really have an argument to justify themselves anymore," said Junichi Sato, executive director of Greenpeace Japan.

"If they can't get enough data by killing thousands of whales, then that is a failure of the science," he said.

But "it's about pride. Japan has been claiming this is part of Japanese culture. Once you raise that issue, it's very difficult to back down."

Questions remain about the economic viability of whaling given the decades-long decline in Japanese consumption of the meat. A report by the International Fund for Animal Welfare recently said the whaling programme costs Japanese taxpayers $10 million a year.

There was little appetite among private firms to restart commercial whaling given the prohibitive expense, Sato said.

However, Fisheries minister Yoshimasa Hayashi recently told AFP in an interview that the hunt would continue, dismissing anti-whaling voices as "a cultural attack, a kind of prejudice against Japanese culture".

In the narrow streets around Tsukiji market, billed as the world's biggest fish emporium, that view was echoed by some who defended whaling as an important tradition, albeit a fading one.

Others feared job losses in the whaling sector if the hunt ended and criticised activists' in-your-face approach -- even if they had little affection for whale meat itself.

"It is Japanese food culture," said 45-year-old Miuka Arita.

"People who decide they want to eat it should be allowed to do so. Just because (activists) didn't grow up eating it does not justify the aggressive actions they take," she said.

Tamie Sawai doesn't think much of "dangerous actions" by conservationists either. But the 83-year-old added that she had not eaten whale meat in years.

"Its bacon was quite good, but I don't have any strong sense of nostalgia for whale meat," she said.

"I don't miss it at all."
