“ … 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.

Shark fin sales, prices plunge in China

Shark fin, a staple at official banquets and normally a hot commodity during the traditional peak season surrounding the Mid-Autumn Festival, is disappearing from plates after a government ban and rising awareness about shark conservation in the country, according to Beijing's Mirror Evening News.

Shark fin is not available in many of Beijing's dried seafood markets as restaurants no longer serve dishes using the ingredient.

After visiting 18 high-end restaurants, the reporter found that due to the Chinese government's ban on serving shark fin at official government banquets and receptions, more than 60% of these restaurants have removed dishes containing shark fin from their menus.

In addition, five among 16 fried seafood stores have suspended shark fin product offerings.

"Our store began suspending shark fin supplies last year and now mainly sells abalone and sea cucumber," the owner of a dried seafood shop stated, adding that however, sales for all three products have dropped by around 90%.

Shark fin was being sold for about 2,400 yuan (US$390) per 500 grams last year, compared with 3,000 yuan (US$490) in 2012. The prices have dropped to a mere 1,500 to 1,600 yuan (US$244-$260) this year, the owner added.

According to the owner of another store that continues to sell shark fin, shark fin sales have been slice in half this year.

Since late 2012, China has banned shark fin soup and bird's nest soup from official banquets, a move that was meant to cut back on extravagance in government spending and which would also result in significant environmental benefits. However, the ban also hit dried seafood stores, with six out of 16 such stores the reporter visited saying they have lost orders for shark fin from high-end restaurants.

In related news, figures provided by conservation group WildAid showed that sales of shark fin in Guangzhou, the trading hub for shark fin in China, have plunged by 82% over the past two years, while retail and wholesale prices have dropped by 47% and 57%, respectively.

A survey conducted by the group also showed that 85% of Chinese consumers said they have not consumed dishes containing the ingredient over the past three years, while 28.2% of them attributed the government ban to the ingredient's disappearance from restaurant dishes.
