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.

Melia Hotel Chain Praised for Taking Shark Fins Off Menus

Jakarta. One of the world’s biggest hotel chains, Melia Hotels International, said on Tuesday that it had removed shark fins from the menus of its restaurants around the world, including the Gran Melia Hotel in Jakarta, joining a growing global campaign against the popular delicacy in Asia.

“With the removal of shark fin as an ingredient, Melia is contributing to the protection of the important role sharks play in maintaining balance in the marine ecosystem,” the company said in a statement. “As predators, sharks are a key species in the food chain and also indicators of the health of our oceans. They eliminate the weakest prey, maintain balance with competitors, and guarantee the diversity of species,” it added.

Melia, which runs more than 350 hotels in 40 countries, making it one of the world’s largest hotel companies, said the ban on shark fins would also apply to all events held within its facilities.

Ratna Sjamsiar Idris, director of marketing and communications at Gran Melia Hotel Jakarta, said that the ban takes effect immediately.

“The order [of the shark fin ban] was carried out before the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan,” Ratna told the Jakarta Globe on Tuesday. “We now no longer accommodate consumers who order shark fin soups in our establishment,” she added.

Prior to the ban, the delicacy was a popular dish for corporate functions or weddings, but not on individual orders, she said.

Environmental activists have for years campaigned against shark finning, during which sharks would have their fins sliced off — often while they are alive — before the fish are thrown back into the ocean to die.

Considered by many to be a powerful aphrodisiac, shark fin is popular in Indonesia and in other Asian countries such as China and Hong Kong, where, according to, more than 70 million sharks are killed each year to fulfill the demand in the market.

Diver and environmentalist Riyanni Djangkaru appreciated the Melia initiative, saying it set an example for the country’s hospitality industry.

“What Gran Melia did was a breakthrough,” Riyanni, who is also the editor in chief of DiveMag Indonesia, told the Globe. “There were gentleman’s agreements among hotel chains in Indonesia to not serve shark fins to their clients, but those were unwritten. It’s time for a new public relations method like this, as customers these days care more about environmental issues,” she added.

A bowl of shark fin soup in Indonesia is priced at between Rp 400,000 to 1 million ($34 to $85), depending on the texture of the meat.

Indonesia, along with India, account for more than a fifth of global shark catches, according to 2013 data released by the wildlife trade monitoring network TRAFFIC.

Both countries account for nearly 80 percent of the total shark catch reported between 2002 and 2011.

Melia is the latest among a string of companies to boycott shark fin consumption in recent years following lobbying by conservationists.

The first shop in Indonesia to remove shark fin from its menu was Crown Marine Products, located on the premises of Jakarta’s Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in 2012, after a petition circulated online.

National carrier Garuda Indonesia last year banned the transportation of shark fins aboard all flights. Garuda previously transported some 36 tons of shark fins a year, according to environmental conservation group WWF Indonesia.
